Mahindra XUV500 Latest Updates

With the recent unveiling of the upcoming Mahindra XUV700 brand name for the upcoming W601 SUV, the existing XUV500 will be discontinued. That said, the XUV500 nameplate will return in the next-gen model which is expected to launch a year after the XUV700’s debut. It will rekindle its rivalry with the Creta, Seltos and Harrier. The upcoming model is likely to utilise the same 2.2-litre diesel and 2.0-litre petrol engine as now, albeit with less power than the XUV700. It’s likely to be offered with a front wheel drivetrain only.

The upcoming XUV500 could be priced from Rs 12 lakh (ex-showroom) and will renew its rivalry with the Tata Harrier, Hyundai Creta, Kia Setlos, Volkswagen Taigun, and the Skoda Kushaq.

Editor's View of Mahindra XUV500

  • Upside

    All variants are feature rich. Thanks to its large dimensions and muscular design it has a lot of road presence.

  • Downside

    Interior fit and finish isn’t the best. Third-row is cramped and with all seats up there is barely any luggage room left.


XUV500 Detailed Review

A few years ago, at a point when no one would have believed that an ingenious SUV made in India and positioned at a premium spot above the Mahindra Scorpio, would manage to do so well in terms of sales. Mahindra went ahead and proved everyone wrong with the XUV500 and in just 33 months of its inception, the SUV sold one lakh units. Impressive!

To keep up with changing times, the Cheeta inspired SUV has evolved and looks more attractive than before. Being the first major makeover since its launch in September 2011, Mahindra is betting big on the 2015 Mahindra XUV500, but then the changes are more cosmetic than mechanical.

The front design has been enhanced to make the new XUV 500 facelift more appealing

Design: rating_3.5_rating

Like in most facelifts, the 2015 Mahindra XUV500 retains its original silhouette which most Mahindra loyalists will be glad about. The major exterior changes are done to enhance its face. Replacing the old body coloured grille is a new black one with chrome inserts, similar to the New Scorpio. And though the headlight shape is unchanged, it gets a re-profiled cluster with a distinct S-shaped LED guide light which imitates day time running lights. But the big change here is the inclusion of cornering light which ensures there’s no surprise around a corner.

Also new is a bolder bonnet with rounded corners and fewer creases, and a muscular new front bumper. Replacing the old round shaped fog lamps are these new L-shaped ones, which have been positioned higher than before. There’s plenty of chrome too, like around the fog lamps and on the new skid plate at the bottom of the front bumper.

There are a few design changes on the side and rear of the 2015 Mahindra XUV500

Look at the 2015 Mahindra XUV500 facelift from the side and you’ll notice a chrome strip highlighting the SUV’s entire shoulder line. Also new are fresh alloy wheels to complete the sporty theme. The only change at the back is a bolder chrome garnish on the registration plate, which completes the exterior design update.

Mahindra has also introduced two new body colours for the 2015 XUV500, Sunset Orange (which our test car sports) and Pearl White, apart from the usual five other shade offered before. The design has evolved with time and the changing demands of the customers, and overall it’s not over-the-top and nor does it try too hard to look fresh.



2015 Mahindra XUV500 gets classy beige and black interior and dashbaord


Interior: rating_3.5_rating
I wasn’t fond of the outgoing SUV’s black-and-purple or the walnut-and-beige interior. Thankfully they have been dumped to make way for a classier black-and-beige combination, which makes the cabin appear more airy than before. There clearly is better use of materials and the overall finish has improved too.

The basic layout is the same, but there are a few cosmetic tweaks, like the silver accents on the centre console have been replaced with better looking matt grey ones with metallic finish. The gear knob gets the same matt grey treatment, which gives the cabin a slightly more premium feel.

New Mahindra XUV5000 gets Icy Blue backlit drivers display

Another good change is the use of icy blue backlit colour instead of the previous red, making it easier on the eye. So the twin-cluster driver’s display gets backlight with the new icy blue lighting and which gives it an ambience or lounge lighting on the ceiling of the same colour.

The last two additions in the cabin are illuminated scuff plates on the door sill with XUV500 branding and sporty aluminium pedals. Besides these, the cabin is pretty much the same. The seats are large and comfortable, and the top-end variants get better beige leather upholstery. The second row of seat offers enough knee room, and even the third row is quite useable.



New 2015 Mahindra XUV500 comes with electric sunroof on thee W10 variant

Features: rating_4.0_rating

For an SUV priced between Rs 11-14 lakh, the last generation XUV500 came with plenty of kit. Mahindra has gone and bettered that with the 2015 XUV500 facelift and also introduced an all-new W10 top of the line variant.

Obviously, we got to drive the top spec version which came with features like an electric sunroof with anti pinch, and a 6-way adjustable driver’s seat.

Push button start option is also available on 2015 Mahindra XUV500 W10 version

Now you also get key-less entry, push button start and a much needed (for a car of this size) rear camera with guide lines to assist while parking. There’s a new 7-inch touch screen replacing the older 6.2-inch display, along with an updated infotainment loaded with 3D maps, Mahindra’s Blue Sense app and improved UI. The W10 version is also equipped with logo projection on the OVRM, just in case you misplace the 2510kg SUV. For its price and size, the new Mahindra XUV500 facelift has plenty to offer.



The same engine and transmission has been carried forward on the XUV500 facelift, but with some tweaks

Engine: rating_3.0_rating

The powertrain on the 2015 Mahindra XUV500 remains unchanged. The 4-cylinder 2.2-litre m-Hawk diesel motor continues to churn out a healthy 141PS of power and 330Nm of torque and comes mated to the same 6-speed gearbox. Though Mahindra hasn’t mentioned it, but the throws of the gearbox feel crisper now.

But what the company did say is that it has been tweaked to improve final drive ratio. This calibration not only enhances performance but fuel economy too. The strong power-to-weight ratio makes the new XUV500 unlike most bulky SUVs and more premium saloon-like to drive. It’s neither lethargic nor does it have the usual diesel clatter, even when maintaining three digit speeds.

The mHwak engine has been tuned to improve efficiency and low end power

There was hardly any lag to overcome and response to my right foot was prompt. The engine felt more eager, as the hefty torque kicks in as early as 1,600rpm offering strong low and mid-range making the SUV quick off its feet. It won’t be breaking any speed records but is fast enough to keep things interesting.



The ride quality on the 2015 Mahindra XUV500 has also improved

Ride and Handling: rating_3.5_rating

Being a monocoque is another reason why the XUV500 does not wallow like usual SUVs. Now being sprung on new springs and tweaked shock absorbers the ride and handling is said to have also gone up a notch. Since the test ride was restricted to Mahindra’s test track in Chakan we could not test the XUV500’s handling dynamic to the limit, but it seems fairly firm and flat through the corners of the track.

The suspension felt slightly firmer than the older model, and we expect it to have less body-roll than before, but we’ll need to drive it on our usual roads to confirm that. The steering had the right weight but could have been more direct.

The steering of the XUV500 facelift has good feel but could have been a bit more direct

The 2015 Mahindra XUV500 comes equipped with the latest generation ESP from Bosch (ESP 9) which offers better control under severe braking condition. This along with disc brakes on all four wheels gives the two and a half tonne SUV the desired stopping power.

While the new Brake Energy Regenerator improves fuel economy and also lowers CO2 emissions. Mahindra boasts of improving the fuel economy from 15.1kmpl to an ARAI certified 16kmpl. But with the summer sun in all its glory, the air-conditioning on and after some enthusiastic runs, the XUV500 onboard computer didn’t cross the 10kmpl mark.

There are more reasons to buy the New Age Mahindra XUV500

Verdict: rating_3.5_rating

Now there are fewer reasons not to buy the 2015 Mahindra XUV500. It has improved in terms of styling, interior quality, features and fuel economy. Moreover the XUV500 has an attractive price starting from Rs 11.21 lakh for the base two-wheel drive W4 variant, while the new top-of-the-line W10 all-wheel drive comes at a tempting price of 15.99 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).

Q. Which car is better, Scorpio or XUV500?
  • Mahindra Scorpio and Mahindra XUV500 ex-showroom price starts at Rs 10.0 Lakh for S3 (Diesel) and Rs 12.57 Lakh for W5 (Diesel). ... As far as mileage is concerned, the Scorpio has a mileage of 16.36 kmpl (Diesel top model) and the XUV500 has a mileage of 14.0 kmpl (Diesel top model). Scorpio is solid buld at affordable price . It has an option of 140 BHP. Wheras XUV500 is more of luxurious and stlyish. XUV is has caugh more attention from people who drive sedans. Both the vehicle has got thier own followers.
  • According to me XUV500 because its a great car there is no such issue. Scorpio has less space than XUV500 and Scorpio's suspensions are more stiffer than XUV500. Xuv500 is a family car it's not made for hard offroading but if you want a offroader than you can have Scorpio
  • Scorpio is a more rugged suv of the two. it has a body on frame chasis and is very reliable off the road scenes. It is a rear wheel driven car. XUV 500 on the other hand is an urban suv and is has a monocoque chasis. it is also front wheel driven car and is more premium and better in terms of ergonomics, comfort and safety. choice is for you to make between ruggedness and comfort.

Q. XUV500 W7 or W9 which one to buy , is sunroof and alloy experience worth for difference of INR 2L
  • Sunroof on Cars...Today sunroof is attached to many top of the range models in India and advertisements specifically point this out as a premium feature...Well, my experience...I had used three makes of SUVs with sunroof - namely Landrover Freelander, GMC Envoy and Nissan Armada... in a country with climatic condition of extreme heat and dust, high humidity, cold and some rain... over a period of 12 years...I found sunroof utterly useless. Can't keep it open because of high wind noise above 40kmph approx... one of the cars the Freelander, due to lack of moment of the sunroof, the surrounding rail got rusted and water leaked in.The only slight advantage I found was that during extreme winter, keeping the shade of the sunroof open lets in sunlight which is enjoyable, but, the same is easily compensated by the heater in the car air conditioning...I wouldn't therefore never again waste money on sunroof...
  • Just another perspective. most of the features of W9 can be installed in W7 by asking the service Center guys to install those as additional accessories or as spare parts and it would be well under 2 L difference. The only option that you are unlikely to get is the Sunroof. I feel that it's not important enough here in India. So it's your choice on how you want to spend your money. Looks can be made to match with that of W11 as well by buying parts from M2All.
  • See if you are addicted to sunroof then you can buy W9 but if you are okay without it then W7 is great and there is no such issue with normal times but with allow wheels it looks great.If you don't want sunroof then buy W9 and there is no such difference in between these two models

Q. Which variant of XUV500 is worth buying?

  • W8. Good if you find one W10 used at good price. Always value for money.

    I call the car Miss Swift, she is really quick at accelerating, and great to climb up hill sections, 'Ghats' as we call them in Maharashtra. Leaves all types of cars including imported ones behind when climbing up slopes. But on our highways its best not to drive at more than 120 kmph, because of sudden appearance of hazards like cattle, jaywalkers e.t.c. Although I have driven her at 150kmph, it does feel unsafe. Braking action is good up to 100kmph. She is a driver's car, would hate to sit behind and let someone else drive her. The family loves the spacious interiors and the ride comfort.

    I have an XUV500 W11 (O) variant. I'd heard from many people that this car is not good, it has monocoque does not have ladder chassis, is not for off road and what to know, but I have myself driven from Varanasi to Goa and Goa to Varanasi drove, about 4200 km and it was a very comfortable journey which also had six passengers. I also did offroading but never felt a lack of power. The only boot space is disappointing. The rest of the car has no shortage anywhere. This is my best buy SUV.

  • 4.7

    Good car, Safe on Roads, Low maintenance cost, Spares are Cheap, Interiors need to be revamped completely, New Model 2019 has better Exterior, but previous one was not bad, Dashboard needs some better color combination, Plastic quality of interiors needed to be improved, New colors should be introduced, Dual tone interiors should have options. I had driven it on Long routes, Trips from Nagpur to Goa, Hyderabad, Pune, Bidar, Satara, Jabalpur etc.
