Mahindra XUV500 Highlights

XUV500 Price

The prices of XUV500 diesel variants start at Rs. 12.31 lakh and the top-end diesel is priced at Rs. 18.63 lakh. Mahindra XUV500 is available in 11 variants and 7 colours.

XUV500 Variants

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.

XUV500 Specifications

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.

XUV500 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.

XUV500 Competitors

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!

Mahindra XUV500 Latest Updates

The 2020 Mahindra XUV500 has been spied testing in India for the first time, wearing heavy camouflage. But despite that, we could make out the more upright nose, the 7-slat grille and the redesigned tailgate. It is expected to get a revamped interior as well with some styling elements expected to be taken from the Korando. Under the hood, the upcoming model is expected to come with BS6-compliant 2.0-litre diesel and petrol engines. Both engines are expected to come with 6-speed manual and automatic transmissions. The next-gen XUV500 is expected to make its official debut at the upcoming Auto Expo and launch by mid-2020. Considering the handful of updates, expect it to be priced more than the current model which is priced from Rs 12.31 lakh to Rs 18.52 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).

Mahindra has silently axed the XUV500’s petrol and diesel AT AWD variants. It has also increased the prices of other variants marginally.

Editor's View of Mahindra XUV500

  • Upside

    Value-for-money SUV, very responsive engine, loaded with feel-good features

  • Downside

    Cramped luggage space with all seats up, suffers from recurring niggles, not backed by a consistent service network

  • Our Verdict

    The Mahindra XUV500 is a stylish, spacious and feature-laden SUV which is at home both on-road and off-road. Apart from the unique features it offers, the XUV500 also has a good mix of transmissions and drivetrains to keep everyone happy.

Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying XUV500

Q. Life time of an engine or how many kilometers does XUV500 engine run under good maintenance?
  • Hi, No fixed Parameters to judge or to limit the life of any engine, it depends on a lot of factors. My XUV is touching 1.15L KMs, it is 5 years old but still performs like new, I used it for both, city driving and highways, it has never let me down so far. I have done non-stop solo trips in extremely rainy conditions, in extreme summers, and in extreme wintery condition as well, all such trips I'm talking are between 800 to 1200 KMs. Never a problem, ever! If you'll respect it, it will respect you back, if you'll abuse it, well, it will still reciprocate!With my engine, I'm sure I'm not gonna have any major issues in the engine before 5L KMs. Regards! : By Vishal | 6 months ago
  • Well, I had bought xuv 500 in sep 2013, and have driven it for 70,000 KM's. But mine was a bad experience. The car's body is badly corroded in multiple places and rain water is leaking through the roof!!. Despite of taking good care of the car over these 6 years , the condition is badly deteriorated. This is for sure that Mahindra uses cheap quality door making their cars and any investment ( I had paid 18 lacs ,on road price then) made would go down the drain. Would never buy a Mahindra car ever again!! : By Sarabjit | 4 months ago
  • Hello sir in nagpur company authorized service center is very worst they don't do good servicing and repairing work at all we have to depend upon the local automobiles only and they do better than the mahindra workshops : By Vikrant | 2 weeks ago

  • When it comes to XUV 500 petrol, performances are not equal as you compare to other vehicles, well it consumes more petrol than the others. It all depends on how you drive. THE FACT IS IT CONSUMES A BIT MORE FUEL THEN THE OTHER SUV VEHICLES. In traffic areas it give the maximum mileage of 13 approx not more than that and in LONG DRIVES ON HIGHWAYS you get 16 km approx : By Khalid | 10 months ago
  • I am using the Diesel version. It is little laggy on the Automatic Varient on low speeds. But, can achieve good top speeds for sure. : By Vignesh | 10 months ago

Q. I owned W8 model in 2014 which has more vibrations on second row, we have planned to buy W11 updated, how about 2 row seating comfort while travelling in rough road and may I know if there is more vibrations as previous version - XUV500?
  • The XUV has always been structured on a monocoque platform so it isn’t bogged down by as much body roll through the corners that most body-on-frame SUV like the Scorpio and the Safari face. There is no hint of wobble or nervousness while taking curves at speeds north of 70kmph. It’s agile for its size, but while its steering is fairly accurate, it doesn’t provide great feel. The top-spec W11 variant we drove gets the optional 18-inch alloy wheels with tyre profiles reduced from 235/65 to 235/60. The usual 17-inch wheels will still be available as standard. The ride on the bigger wheels felt sporty but not stiff at any point. That said, the tendency of the XUV’s back end to feel bouncy over sharp bumps still remains.The seats have also become more opulent than before with the inclusion of quilted tan leather. So, sinking in for a nap won’t take long. That said, if spoiled, which is a given, cleaning these seats is not going to be an easy task.As far as NVH levels are concerned, they are well controlled and the engine noise is only audible in the cabin when revved beyond 2,500 rpm. However, the same cannot be said for the Bridgestone Ecopia tyres which emit a lot of rolling noise with some of it making its way inside cabin. But that still isn’t bothersome and can be washed away with the audio system.Read More: - Mahindra XUV500 Facelift : First Drive Review: https://www.zigwheels.com/reviews-advice/reviews/mahindra-xuv500-facelift-first-drive-review/30151/ : By Zigwheels | 11 months ago

    # 2nd row AC is worst.# engine life is very less.# lots of maintenance cost.# front right side clearance is very poor visual.# headlights visibility is poor while turning towards right side @ moderate speed.# It looks like luxurious car, but actually it is not. Same old rough cars.# suspension systems are very very outdated. I think Tata Indica will give you the best in this case.# current pricing is too high for that car. Not matching with the first year hipe and current situation.# That car requires a perfect service which you won"t get in Mahindra garages.# I won"t suggest anybody to go for it.

    I own the car from past 4.5 years and driven for more than 85k kms. The ride quality is very good and I am happy with the car"s overall build and ride quality. Although the shocker and suspension is a little lite, that shouldn"t be a problem if you are not looking to use the car for the off-roading purpose. 2nd row is pretty comfortable for an average sized 3 adults. I get a mileage of 12kmpl in City and 13.5+kmpl on highways.
