Mahindra's XUV500 automatic was launched last year, however, it missed out on some of the features which the manual variant came with.
Now, Mahindra has added features of the push start/stop button and passive keyless entry to its top of the range, W10 AT. The top end automatic variant of the XUV500 will also feature the request buttons on the front door handles.
A smart key will replace the flip-out key as well on the XUV500 automatic top end variant. Among these features, the Mahindra XUV500 AT W10 variant comes with 6 airbags, hill descent and hill hold, a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, ABS with EBD, projector headlamps, and an electric sunroof.
As for the power of the Mahindra XUV500, it comes with 2.2-litre mHawk diesel engine which produces 138bhp and 330Nm of peak torque, this is mated to a 6-speed automatic gearbox.
The XUV500 comes with front wheel drive and an optional All-Wheel Drive (AWD). Also, Mahindra is offering a 1.9-litre mHawk diesel unit in Delhi to counter the diesel ban on vehicles above 2000cc.
Mahindra XUV500 has been priced in the range of Rs. 12 lakh to Rs. 18 lakh and its main competitors is the Toyota Innova Crysta which is doing well in terms of sales.
