Any manufacturer that needs to hold lucky draws to give away its cars to a few select owners who won’t have to wait in the long queue clearly indicates a mighty successful product and that’s something the XUV5OO has been right from the word go. With its bold and aggressive styling, powerful engine and a horde of features, it was pretty much the SUV to have as the long waiting list suggested.

Mahindra has left no stone unturned to provide the best with its premium SUV and recently switched to a Borg Warner on-demand all-wheel drive system. Being an SUV, adventurous owners are bound to be in situations which can get a little too tricky to be handled by a front wheel driven car.

 

And this is exactly when the AWD system comes into play. While it won’t exactly raise a ‘storm’ like the Super XUV5OO which did so well in the Desert Storm rally, it is more than capable of taming some trails and not to mention getting you out of tricky situations which call for more traction and grip.
