Latest On Mahindra XUV500
The Mahindra XUV500 2018 gets some new features to hold its own against fresh competition such as the Jeep Compass, the updated Hyundai Creta as well as the Tata Hexa. Updates include a revised grille, new tail lamps, and 18-inch alloy wheels. On the inside, there’s leather upholstery, and an updated infotainment system with smartphone and smartwatch connectivity. The 2.2-litre diesel engine too has been tuned to deliver 155PS of power and 380Nm of torque. It’s important to note that the XUV500 is a little over seven years old at the moment. That means an all-new version is likely to debut by 2020.

Mahindra XUV500 Highlights
Exterior and Interior
As far as looks go, the XUV500 looks as muscular and aggressive as an SUV should. Changes for 2018 include a revised grille with a lot of chrome detailing, revised headlamps and a reworked tail that includes a redesigned triangular taillamp cluster. Other notable changes include new 18-inch alloy wheels and a subtle chrome strip that runs along the base of the doors. While we were expecting Mahindra to iron out fit and finish issues with this second update, that’s sadly not the case — it continues to be a hit or a miss.
The cabin of the 2018 XUV500 remains as practical as ever. While the basic layout of the dashboard remains unchanged, Mahindra has upped the quality of materials used. The top portion of the dashboard is swathed in black leather, which is a welcome change from the textured plastic of the older model. The seats get tan-coloured quilted leather upholstery that uplifts the ambience of the cabin. The feature list remains unchanged compared to the previous iteration. Highlights include a sunroof, a six-way electrically adjustable driver’s seat, automatic climate control, tyre pressure monitor system and a 7.0-inch touchscreen music system.
Fun fact, the 2.2-litre engine in the XUV is the same motor Tata uses in the Safari and the Hexa. For 2018, the mHawk diesel motor has been tweaked. It now develops 155PS (+15PS) and 360Nm (+30Nm), and is available with either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic. Additionally, you can choose between front-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive in the top-spec W11 (O) variant. Despite its bulk, the XUV is quite fun to drive. It’s known to shove you into your seat when you pin the throttle. We’d pick the automatic. You know, because we like our left knee. When we road tested the AWD automatic, the XUV500 delivered 11.83kmpl inside the city and 14.69kmpl on the highway. Not bad for a massive SUV! The sprint to 0-100kmph, too, is respectable at 12.98 seconds. The 2.2-litre petrol engine has not been revised in any way and still develops 140PS of maximum power and 320Nm of peak torque. The petrol motor is available with a 6-speed automatic transmission only.
The XUV500 can be had in W5, W7, W9, W11 and W11 (O) variants. You get the option of an automatic transmission in all but the base variant, which we think is a great move. If you can excuse the lack of a sunroof, the W9 variant is the best bet. And yes, the automatic transmission is definitely worth the premium it commands.
Tata Hexa : Tata has been putting out some amazing cars lately and the Hexa is no exception. While it is the spiritual successor to the Aria, it just does everything one bit better. If the family wants to travel with some swag, this is the coolest people mover you can buy.
Innova Crysta : The Crysta has been a beacon of reliability. It scores well across all parameters, from design to engine refinement to the comfort of the passengers. You also get a bevy of additional features. The Innova’s aftersales service is unparalleled to any other manufacturer. No wonder people still prefer this luxurious people carrier to big and cumbersome SUVs.
Like most Mahindra vehicles, the XUV500 offers a lot for the money. Quality is a bit of a hit or a miss, and there are known niggles too. But, that doesn’t take away from the fact that Mahindra’s big boy is a well-packaged SUV for those who love munching miles. It’s about time we got an all-new version, though!
