Mahindra XUV500 W9 launched in India. The Mahindra XUV500 W9 is evaluated at Rs 15.45 lakh ex-showroom (Delhi).
Mechanically, the XUV500 stays unaltered with the 2.2-liter turbo diesel engine kicking out 138bhp and 330Nm of torque which is sent to the front wheels through either a six-speed manual and six-speed automatic. All-wheel drive is additionally accessible as a choice. The new W9 variant also borrows features from the top variant W10 trim.
Essentially, Mahindra is trying to offer a more loaded version of the XUV500 at a slightly more affordable price, which can be seen as a move to counter the newfound popularity of the recently launched Jeep Compass.
XUV500 W9 will be available in both manual and automatic transmission. XUV500 is the only SUV in its class that offers aspirational feature like electric sunroof, and after the launch of W9 today – electric sunroof will be available in these 2 variants – W9 and W10.

Talking about the launch of the XUV500 W9 variant, Veejay Ram Nakra, Chief of Sales & Marketing – Automotive Division, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd, said, “Since its launch in 2011, the XUV500 has been a pioneer in providing innovative hi-tech features that are not available even in vehicles that are almost double its price. We are certain that the introduction of these hi-end features at such a competitive price point will generate a lot of interest amongst prospects who are evaluating SUVs in the price range of 14 lacs to 18 lacs. By introducing these aspirational features at this price, XUV500 has raised the bar once again.”
