The W6 isn’t just the cheapest way into the Mahindra XUV500 range, it’s about the cheapest way into a seven-seat SUV in Australia. How cheap? Try a lean $25,990 - and that’s drive-away pricing.
That money buys you 17-inch alloy wheels, cloth seats, air-con with vents (powered by a second compressor) in the second and third row, cornering headlights with DRLs, front and rear fog lights, cruise control, rear parking sensors and a 6.0-inch infotainment screen linking with a six-speaker stereo.
The big news with the W6 is that Mahindra has finally added a petrol-powered model - with a turbocharged 2.2-litre unit engine good for 103kW/320Nm paired with a six-speed automatic - and that’s something that should seriously help its popularity.
You can expect dual front, front-side and curtain airbags (though the latter don't extend to the third row of seats), along with rear parking sensors and ESP, but no reversing camera.
