New Age XUV 5oo

Xuv front

 

Bold new styling. Cutting-edge technology. Premium new interiors. Make way for an all-new predator. Make way for the New Age XUV500. One look at the intimidating cheetah-inspired exterior, and you’ll find it hard to look away. Step in and you’re greeted by luxury so grand, you won’t want to step out again. Beneath the hood, improved dynamic torque delivers driving pleasure on any terrain. And the enhanced suspension gives you superior ride and handling. Brimming with exciting new age technology, the New Age XUV500 has been designed for a whole new experience.

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.

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.

xuv top view

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.

Xuv 500

Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. (M&M),  has given a name to its upcoming and much awaited SUV, project code named W201, as Mahindra XUV 500.

As per reports the new Mahindra XUV 500 price in India will be between Rs 14 lakh to Rs 15 lakh. The Mahindra XUV 500 is expected to be launched on September 28.

Mahindra XUV500 Description :

Homegrown automaker Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. is about to add a new car to its already hit fleet of Sports Utility Vehicles in India. Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd, the automotive division of the US $12.5 billion Mahindra Group is said to have carried out extensive research across the globe before arriving at the design of the new Mahindra SUV in India.

Mahindra XUV 500 has received its name recently and was earlier codenamed as Mahindra W201. The two ‘o’ after the name connotes the activeness or an energetic personality and signifies the agility and quickness of the SUV. The new SUV by Mahindra is said to have been chiseled out in shape after massive survey that covered respondents from the western markets, India and South Africa. The new SUV has undergone rigorous testing and validation in some European, Australian and South African countries. It is under development as an SUV between Mahindra Scorpio and high end premium SUVs available in India.

The other qualities of Mahindra XUV 500 are; contemporary design, exterior style and sophisticated technologies that find a comfortable and apt place in this new SUV. Mahindra engineers at the Mahindra Research Valley at Chennai have developed it in-house in India and put in the best in class manufacturing standards in its production. With the new XUV 500 in, Mahindra will be able to embark on giving an Indian SUV option to the world.

The Mahindra XUV 500 has been developed on a monocoque design on which aircrafts are generally designed. The monocoque design is different from the traditional design in which there is a frame which is then covered with lightweight metal sheets. The monocoque design is also called as single shell design.

Mahindra XUV 500 also debuts the first transverse engine from Mahindra. Factors that make this SUV to keep abreast with global standards are its design and development that strictly offer global quality, testing norms and the new SUV complies with global norms, safety regulations and emission standards. Once in, the Mahindra XUV 500 will create a new segment between Mahindra Scorpio and the premium SUVs in India.

The Mahindra XUV 500 will be a 2179cc engine car that will be powered by the mHawk engine of Mahindra Scorpio. Besides the engine, the Mahindra XUV 500 derives nothing from its predecessor Mahindra Scorpio. The new XUV 500 will be able to churn out a maximum power of 120 Bhp and a maximum torque of 290 Nm. It will be mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox. It is also expected to arrive in 6 speed automatic transmission option as well.

The CRDi engine is capable of producing 120 Bhp of maximum power and a maximum torque of 290 Nm. The XUV 500 will be a 6-speed manual transmission car but it is expected that it will also be available in 6-speed automatic transmission option as well in order to compete with the premium SUVs.

Mahindra XUV 500 Exteriors

The exteriors of the Mahindra XUV 500 will not inherit anything from the current Mahindra SUV lineup. The front looks of the new Mahindra SUV will be huge and a Mahindra houses at the centre of the front grille. It will also have daytime LED lights besides a Xenon headlamps and fog lights with clear view. Spy shots of the new Mahindra XUV 500 suggest that it will throw rugged looks with macho looking huge wheel arches. The new XUV 500 will run on a 17 inch alloy wheels. It is also expected that the like the Mahindra Xylo, the Mahindra XUV 500 will not have the rear spare wheel hanging at the rear but it will be positioned under the body.

Mahindra XUV 500 Interior Appearance & Comfort

The new Mahindra XUV 500 is expected to be in the premium SUV segment and is assumed to take on advanced SUV features besides comfort features of a sedan. The normal features such as power steering, power windows, dual-zone climate control system, in addition to the integrated music system. Aux, USB and Bluetooth connectivity is also expected to be available on the Mahindra SUV. The driver seat will be electronically adjustable in addition to retractable ORVM’s. As per reports, it is inferred that the new XUV500 will also be fitted with a global positioning system to keep track of the locations.

Engine Capacity & Performance

The Mahindra XUV 500 engine will be a 2179cc mHawk engine that is also the power machine for the Mahindra Scorpio. The engine produces 120 Bhp of maximum power sufficient enough to power the mighty machine. The engine is capable of producing 290 Nm of maximum torque. In order to translate the power delivered by the engine to the wheels, the XUV 500 is expected to have a 6-speed manual transmission. It is also expected that the XUV 500 will also come with a 6-speed automatic transmission option as well.

Braking & Handling

If there is 120 bhp power under the hood, it is sure that the Mahindra XUV 500 will have a robust braking system in place. As per initial information, this new Mahindra SUV will have both front and rear disc brakes. There will be ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) and EBS (Electronic Brake Distribution) in place to avoid locking in times of panic braking. Also, there will be an Electronic Stability Program in place to keep the big SUV under control irrespective of any terrain. Besides this the new Mahindra XUV 500 will also be equipped with reverse parking sensors, reverse guide system to take care of the slim parking spaces available in the cities. In order to match it with global brands Mahindra could also think of fixing a cruise control and traction control on the new Mahindra XUV 500
