Designed and developed entirely in-house by Mahindra, at the world class research and development facility, Mahindra Research Valley, Chennai, the XUV500 is Mahindra's first in a series of next generation global SUVs, with significant inputs in styling and development from customers across the globe.
All research & development activities for this global SUV were aligned with global standards of quality, technology, testing norms, regulations & emissions from the
The new Mahindra XUV500 is unmatched in terms of style, performance, technology, safety and comfort, providing customers a truly complete driving experience.
Hill Descent Control identifies steep inclines and engages itself to assist the vehicle down the slope with caution. While Hill Hold Control prevents the vehicle from rolling backwards when starting from standstill on an incline.
The XUV500 hosts the first 6-speed transmision fully developed and tested in India. The 6 speeds enable two overdrives, which help in optimum engine torque and speed, resulting in better fuel economy and acceleration.
The headlamp cluster features a row of LED parking lamps and a high-intensity projector bulb that offers significantly improved illumination over a standard halogen bulb. These headlamps also sport a unique feature of 'Static Bending.' When the car is taking a turn, static bending lamps help in automatically illuminating the curved path in accordance with the turn. This assists the driver by improving visibility dramatically.
To create the next generation of SUVs, you have to advance past the status quo. Probably why the XUV500 lets you discover features that most other cars have yet to.
Take the Blue Sense technology, for example. Headquartered in the first-in-class, 6-inch LCD touchscreen infotainment system, it is the single touch point for controls like music,
temperature and navigation.
The XUV500 boasts of a fully loaded GPS navigation system, which covers over 1.5 million kilometres of road across 1200 cities with a turn-by-turn voice guidance system in not less than eight regional languages. The system also gives the driver access to over 5 million touch points of interest including restaurants, ATMs, fuel pumps and movie theatres.
A full-fledged, integrated Driver Information System diligently reports to you with all the vital information about the car. It tells you how far the existing amount of fuel can take you. It monitors the air pressure and temperature of each tyre. It even controls the cabin temperature for you.
The intellipark Reverse Park Assist System has a visual prompt on the LCD screen which shows you the distance between the rear bumper and any object behind your vehicle.
The XUV500 steering wheel features Voice Commands, Cruise and Audio Controls for your convenience and safety. You can control the infotainment system without taking your hands off the steering wheel, through Voice Commands.
Cruise Control makes driving stress and fatigue-free, especially on long highway drives. It maintains the speed of the XUV500 at a preset level using the steering wheel controls, and also allows you to make small changes to the speed without having to use the accelerator.
Steering-mounted controls also allow you to control your Bluetooth-enabled mobile phone through the infotainment system in the XUV500 using Blue Sense technology. This allows you to access your phonebook, as well as make and receive calls.
Rollover Mitigation, too, performs similar duties. It identifies potentially dangerous driving conditions that could lead to the vehicle rolling over. Well before the situation becomes threatening, it causes the ESP system to intervene and control the vehicle speed, thereby restoring stability.
The XUV500 is well equipped to keep you out of harm's way. Six airbags reinforce the safety of the vehicle. Driver and passenger airbags, side airbags and curtain airbags cocoon you.
As if that wasn't enough, the vehicle's body also comes with side impact beams and thoughtfully located crumple zones. They don't just absorb crash energy, but redirect it around the passenger compartment as well.
Step in. Take the wheel. And find around you all you need for that incomparable feeling. Seats, steering wheel and several other contact points wrapped in pure leather.
Intuitive and intelligently placed storage and controls.
Fully Automatic Temperature Control with dual HVAC and vents in each row all come together to create an atmosphere of sheer exclusivity.
Perhaps one of the most unique features of the XUV500 is the lounge lighting. Push a button and concealed lights transform the cabin into a lounge. Making you feel relaxed and invigorated at the same time. It's the kind of feeling no other car can come close to satisfying.
A tailor-made throne awaits you on the inside. But there's more to it than just the supple leather that meets the eye. The front seats are bolstered to keep you in place during high-speed cornering.
The driver's seat is height adjustable and allows you to adjust it in 8 different ways including full lumbar support.
Another useful feature is the ability of the last two rows to completely fold away and transform the XUV500 into the perfect vacation vehicle.
Few vehicles are as fortified as the XUV500. And at the heart of this defense is the Electronic Stability Program (ESP). The Electronic Stability Program is always on high alert and constantly monitors the movement and direction of the car. When it detects loss of control, brakes are automatically applied and torque to the relevant wheel is reduced till vehicle stability is restored. Rest assured, the only thing that'll go out of control is your heartbeat!
