XUV500 now available in auto


The recently updated Mahindra XUV500 range has been updated with the addition of an automatic transmission option.

The six-speed automatic transmission will initially only be available on the front-wheel drive W8 derivative. The transmission itself is sourced from manufacturer Aisin and links a torque converter to planetary gears, making for a fairly traditional set-up.

The gearbox adapts to different driving conditions, and is equipped with a ‘creep’ function to cope with stop/start driving conditions in urban traffic.

The new transmission option is linked to the same 2.2-litre 103kW/330Nm motor as the rest of the range. Claimed fuel consumption is 7.4 litres/100 km and COexhaust emissions of just 196 g/km.

The seven-seater in W8 auto guise  has features such as auto-headlights and windscreen wipers, climate control, remote central locking, cruise control, multifunction steering wheel, electric windows and exterior mirrors, an air-cooled centre console, and charging points in all three seating rows are also included.

In terms of safety there’s dual front, side and curtain airbags, together with ABS brakes with EBD, as well as electronic stability program (ESP) with roll-over mitigation.

Pricing, service and warranty

The pricing includes a five-year/150 000 km warranty, and a five-year/100 000 km service plan.
