The petrol variant of the XUV500 was powered by a 2.2-litre turbocharged four-cylinder unit that could only be had with an automatic transmission. It dished out 140PS of power and 320Nm of torque, making the XUV500 one of the most powerful petrol-powered SUVs in its class. Here’s how the XUV500 petrol fared against its closest competitor, the MG Hector

On the other hand, the diesel variant of the XUV is powered by a 2.2-litre diesel engine that develops 155PS and 360Nm of torque. Transmission options include a 6-speed manual and automatic transmissions. It must be mentioned that the XUV500 was one of the few mid-size SUVs that came with a fully loaded top-spec variant with both an automatic transmission and an all-wheel drive system. The discontinuation of the AWD AT variant means that you can only have the 6-speed automatic in two-wheel drive variants from now on. 

Apart from that, Mahindra has started testing the next-gen XUV500, which is expected to come with revamped looks inside-out. The manufacturer could pack in features like dual-zone climate control, a powered tailgate, a panoramic sunroof and ventilated seats to make it a more attractive package. Expected powertrain options for the 2020 XUV500 to include BS6-compliant 2.0-litre petrol and diesel engines. The next-gen XUV500 could hit our roads by mid 2020.
