17,36,730). All prices are ex showroom Delhi. The vehicles will be available
across Mahindra dealerships from December 5, 2015 onwards.
The New Age XUV500 is the only
SUV in its class to offer a 2nd generation 6-speed automatic transmission with
AWD as an option. The all new Automatic Transmission has been sourced for the
first time from the leading global supplier, AISIN, Japan.
Speaking at the launch of the
XUV500 all new Automatic variant Pravin Shah, President & Chief Executive
(Automotive), M&M Ltd. noted, "The XUV500 broke new ground for
Mahindra when it was first launched in 2011 and with the launch of the New Age
XUV500 earlier this year we have emerged as a strong player in the premium SUV
segment. At Mahindra, it is our constant endeavour to offer advanced and
accessible technologies to our customers. The XUV500 already has many
technology firsts to its credit and now we have further pushed the boundaries
with the introduction of the XUV500 Automatic. Being a listening organization,
we constantly incorporate consumer insights and feedback and I am sure that
this variant will be an instant hit with our customers.”
• Fully Automatic Gearbox - The XUV500 Automatic features a
completely new 2nd generation transmission with torque convertor and a
planetary gear-train that enables smooth and precise gear shifts. The intuitive
gear changes combine responsiveness of a manual transmission with the
hassle-free operation of an automatic, thereby providing the experience of both
relaxed cruise or spirited drive, as desired. The all new Automatic
transmission allows dynamic gear shifts that are smooth and barely perceptible.
• Optimised gear ratios (with
2 overdrive gears) with 6 speed automatic transmission for better fuel
efficiency - With 6 gears the XUV500 has a higher number of gear ratios than a
conventional 5 speed automatic which enables the driveline to deliver the best
fuel efficiency. The gear ratios in the 6 speed transmission are optimized to
ensure that the engine uses the minimum amount of fuel.
• Automatic transmission with
AWD - For the Adventure seekers the all new Automatic transmission also comes
with an option of All Wheel Drive (AWD). The AWD ensures that the vehicle
torque is suitably distributed between the wheels to provide the best traction
on rugged or slippery roads, by sensing the difference in RPM between the front
and rear wheels.
• Intelligent adaptation to terrains
and altitudes - The intelligent all new transmission is capable of adapting to
mid and high altitudes to enable best drivability in these conditions. The two
uphill climbing modes allow the vehicle to take on slopes and ghats
• Easy cruising in City - The
automatic gearbox is capable of providing brisk acceleration and smooth
delivery of torque across all 6 gears so as to enable a relaxed and stress free
drive even in the stop and go city traffic.
It comes with a “creep function” to aid in slow moving traffic.
• Manual Mode - The Manual
mode is for those spirited drives as it allows the user to manually shift gears
and extract the best performance from the vehicle.
• Minimum Service - In the
XUV500 AT the Automatic Transmission Fluid is filled for life, ensuring service
cost is kept to a minimum
