Mahindra launches XUV500 facelift tomorrow; Top things to know

Mahindra & Mahindra market capitalisation crosses Rs 1-trillion after normal monsoon forecast

Under the hood, the 2018 XUV500 gets a 2.2-litre, 4-cylinder mHawk diesel engine producing 155PS of power and 360Nm of torque. The top most model is priced at Rs18.98 lakh (ex-showroom Mumbai).

The Mahindra & Mahindra stock on Tuesday entered the coveted Rs 1 trillion market capitalisation club a day after the India Meteorological Department (IMD) said the country will enjoy appropriate monsoon, which is associated with the absence of El Nino, a phenomenon that causes deficient rain and impacts the "life-saving monsoon". The XUV500 was the creator of the premium SUV segment in the Rs. 12 to 18 lakhs price range in India and continues to be the frontrunner in the segment when it comes to setting new trends and pushing boundaries.

"Today, with the launch of the plush new XUV500, we have strengthened its value proposition further by creating new benchmarks in luxury and styling".

The refreshed model has bold design, luxurious interiors, and a powerful engine targeting the needs of premium customers.

On the exterior the XUV gets an updated grille with chrome garnish, an altered front bumper, new triangular tail-lamps and a restyled tailgate with chrome accents. The infotainment system comes with Arkamys enhanced audio along with first-in-class smart watch connectivity, connected apps and Ecosense technology.

XUV500 2018 will be available in 5 diesel variants - W5, W7, W9, W11 & W11 OPT.

This new model will come with the All-Black Dashboard in the cabin, with a soft-touch material.

The XUV2018 also comes with enhanced suspension, 6 airbags, ABS with EBD, ESP with Rollover mitigation, hill hold and hill descent control and disc brakes on all wheels. The new 6th generation electronically controlled Variable Geometry Turbocharger (eVGT) has improved the low-end torque further, to ensure an even more pleasurable urban driving experience. It also has the freedom to choose manual and automatic gear combinations.

The refreshed version of Mahindra XUV500 will be available in seven colours - Crimson Red, Opulent Purple, Moondust Silver, Volcano Black, Mystic Copper, Lake Side Brown and Pearl White.
