Mahindra XUV 500 A/T


The Mahindra is loaded with standard features, including automatic climate control, leather seats, automatic windscreen wipers and headlights, fog lights, central locking, reverse-view camera with parking sensors,
Bluetooth audio streaming and telephone connectivity, six airbags, electronic stability control, four-wheel disc brakes, satellite navigation and cruise control.

The seven-seat SUV segment is loaded with competitors from almost every marque on the market. Most of these sales come from brands that only offer their vehicles with automatic gearboxes.

Until recently, the exception to the rule was Indian manufacturer Mahindra. The Mahindra XUV500 was only available locally with a six-speed manual gearbox and the option of either front- or all-wheel drive.

Earlier in the year, we drove the new six-speed automatic version on Indian roads, but were keen to try it locally. The vehicle impressed us in the subcontinent, but with only a limited time behind the wheel, the real test would be across a variety of local road surfaces.
