The new Mahindra XUV 500 has launched to rapturous applause. We get the wheel of M&M’s winner. The we’ve driven is the front-wheel W8, which is fully-loaded with all the you could wish for.


Fussy detailing of end evident from this

The XUV has been under development for time now. It was back in that clues began to from M&M’s secretive development team about the Scorpio’. Of course, that was a red for the Scorpio still continues to be a seller, and there aren’t any to axe it.

What’s significant about the XUV 500 is that it breaks the mould what we’ve been to from MM. This is an SUV, but not in the traditional body-on-frame sense Mahindra is famous for. it’s a monocoque, which is to say the body shell forms the in itself. Monocoques are lighter body-on-frame construction, but they’re time consuming to design and to produce. Monocoques also withstand the same degree of that a conventional ladder-frame can. The main advantage to construction is that it saves and also gives the vehicle driving dynamics and handling.

The XUV 500 departs from conventional in another major parameter: it is wheel drive. (A four-wheel variant is also available, we haven’t tested yet).

so many technical upgrades, has made one big jump into the More significantly, the lessons from this project hold MM in good stead as it evolves its product range, to perhaps compact cars in the

The styling of the Mahindra XUV 5OO has been by the Cheetah, if you’re going to the marketing spiel. Cheetah or no the design too is a big improvement over we’ve seen emerge Mahindra before. The front and grille have a lot going on, a surfeit of strakes, honeycomb and gills, but as the design flows aft it all together a lot more cohesively. The wheel arches give the XUV road presence, while the below C-pillar, concentric the rear wheel arch is a touch.

Mahindra XUV 5OO has real road Spare wheel tucked rear bumper.

The tail is hinged at the top and opens upwards, not unlike all other Mahindra The rear bumper has some ribbing, which isn’t necessary, but the restraint in penning-in too complex surfaces has yet to be learned by designers.

All said, there’s no away from the fact the Mahindra XUV 500 is a very distinctive vehicle, and one which is immediately from almost any angle.


Clockwise, from Middle row has good seating and adequate leg room. Third row is with low hip point. Dashboard and console of XUV truly one of the best, for shiny plastic on top of dashboard.

design team spent as time on the inside as they did on the and if anything, the cabin comes much more beautifully. In the XUV’s interiors are a quantum ahead in terms of design, and any other indigenously developed to date. The centre console is up to date, with a 6-inch taking pride of place. touchscreen controls the navigation and functions, and can also play In the lower-spec W6 variant, the touchscreen is by a similar-sized multi-info display. control is standard on all variants, and the chrome-ringed dials look nice. The control stalks are and operate with positive Both the W6 and W8 versions get audio on the steering wheel.

The Mahindra XUV 500 also gets a box between the front two seats, is large enough to hold a of cans of your favourite

The quality of the plastics and general fit and is also substantially improved, and better than most UVs at this price. We have our about the glossy faux trim, but Indian buyers to lap it up. The stowage box atop the dashboard an irritating reflection in the windshield, and would do well to consider it a matte finish instead.

from top right: Cooled box is Rear window is small, and visibility could be better. space is commodious with folded; with third row in you’re restricted to a tiffin Twin glove compartments are shallow.

The sumptuous front in the XUV are exceedingly comfortable, and have lumbar support too. The wheel adjusts for rake and (rake only in the W6 variant), the driver’s seat is height too, making it very to find a comfortable driving The second row also boasts of padding and an upright seating with sufficient leg room. seat space isn’t as as in the Tata Safari for example, but it is better than compared to very own Scorpio.

The third row is used only for short and that too for kids. With the row in place, luggage space is at a For large families who expect to in their XUV 500, it would be worth the expense to invest in a box.

Performance Handling

The Mahindra XUV 500 of a surprisingly car-like driving and that’s a positive. Of course, you do sit higher than you would in a sedan, but what I really about the XUV was how you feel like sitting “in” it and not “on” it. full use of the fully-adjustable seat and column, it was very easy to get behind the wheel.

Mahindra has spent a lot of time on the refinement and NVH of the XUV and it shows in many areas. rock at start up is greatly compared to the Scorpio, and the irritating feeling from the gear has been taken care of as Of course, the transversely-mounted engine and drive layout is partly for reducing the torque-rock at start-up. The of the cabin have also a huge improvement, with all the key and switches falling easily and to hand.

Slot the car into and the light clutch makes it to get a move on. Visibility out of the XUV 500 is good, but advise caution in crowded You can’t place the corners of the car as as you can in other UVs of yore.

The 2179 cc engine is exactly the as the once found in the Scorpio. engine puts out 140 PS and 330 Nm of torque, but not a lot. Mahindra won’t any kerb weight figures for the XUV but by our calculations, we estimate it to be about a 150 kgs than the Scorpio, with a weight in the region of 1,950 kgs.

Performance is adequate, but expect a rush of power, if your thing. The 6-speed copes well with the spread of torque, and the XUV 500 gathers and motors competently. The gearing is on the side, and you’ll rarely if use sixth, except if you get to an expressway a uni-directional flow of traffic. It being rushed through the however, and the ’box will if you try any snappy shifts. The ESP system seems to play a part with a degree of juddering if you try to the gearshifts. We need to try the W6 without the ESP to this though. The W8 version we had Hill Descent control as but again, we didn’t get an opportunity to use it.

has bestowed the XUV 500 with all-wheel brakes, which ensure stopping power. Braking speed is much more than most other we’ve driven, yet the brakes don’t offer much in the way of ABS is standard on both the W6 and W8 variants.

The XUV ride is composed, and the McPherson front suspension and car-like rear arrangement ensure the XUV not ‘boat’ as speed, which is in many SUVs. The ride is on the ride though, and you do feel jarring over sharp-edged and potholes. Body roll is controlled too and the best about the XUV 500 is it does not feel top heavy. The ESP has roll-over protection built in

Fuel Efficiency


A verdict now almost seems Indian car buyers have for the Mahindra XUV 500 with their the greatest testament there is or can be. periods stretch into and the company has been forced to to a lottery system to make

Best of all, the XUV 500 shows how far Indian car design and manufacture has in one generation. At Rs 13.7 lakh the Mahindra XUV 500 W8 is a truly compelling You really couldn’t ask for more.
