Mahindra XUV500 2019 pricing and spec revealed

A revised styling package headlines changes to Mahindra's XUV500 range.

The Mahindra XUV500 seven-seat SUV has received its first slew of updates since 2017, with new styling and tweaks to its four-cylinder petrol engine.

Headlining the changes is the seven-seater’s overhauled styling, which features a new grille with a contemporary chrome diamond-pattern design, re-designed light clusters, and lower bashplate.

The rear features the most notable design changes, including revised light fittings, dual exhaust ports and a new rear spoiler perched atop.

The range continues in two grades, the W6 front-wheel drive entry-level, starting from $26,990 drive-away and then the W10 top-spec which is available as either a front- or all-wheel drive at $31,990 or $34,990 drive-away respectively.

The W6’s standard features now include 17-inch alloy wheels, a 6.0-inch multimedia (non-touch) screen, which features DAB+ digital radio as well as a CD player, cruise control, auto wipers, three ISOFIX child-seat mounting points across the second row, and a cooled centre console box.

Stepping up to the W10 adds a 7.0-inch multimedia touchscreen with built-in sat-nav supported by a premium Arkamys sound system, leather trim on all seven seats, a reversing camera, keyless entry and push-start, and illuminated scuff plates.

Only the top-model W10 has a touchscreen with phone connectivity. Only the top-model W10 has a touchscreen with phone connectivity.

The XUV500 range is covered by a five-year warranty and a four-year capped price servicing program.

Both trim levels of the XUV500 are powered by the same 2.2-litre four-cylinder turbo petrol engine which produces 103kW/320Nm. Mahindra says the engine has become more "refined" as part of this update.

The Australian market misses out on a more potent engine available in the XUV500’s home market of India, which produces 114kW/360Nm. It is mated only to a six-speed manual transmission which is likely to be the reason it was excluded from our market. All Australian-delivered XUV500s now have a six-speed auto.

A Euro 6 emissions-compliant diesel engine (likely to be shared with Mahindra subsidiary, SsangYong) is expected to join the range in 2020.

No active safety items have been added to the XUV500 range, which received a four-star ANCAP safety rating in 2012.
