Mahindra to launch W4 XUV 500 by end of October – Exterior and engine remains same, price reduced to Rs. 10.99 lakhs only
Mahindra has already announced about the launch of W4 variant of XUV 500 in the Indian market but no particular launch schedule has been revealed so far. Sources revealed that the debut is going to be prior to this Diwali and apart from that; it is also informed that the new W4 XUV 500 is going to be the cheapest variant of XUV 500.
In order to grab the attention of buyers during this festive season, Mahindra might have opted to cut off the price a bit as Indian market is always price concerned. But it is also sure that buyers will never compromise the look and feel for money which should also be considered very strictly by the manufacturer. The new W4 XUV 500 also comes with the same 2.2 Litre diesel engine that is capable of generating around 140 bhp at the peak. The engine gets accompanied with a 6 speed manual transmission gear box as standard as it is going to be a feast for speed freaks who want a power packed SUV for affordable price tag.
The base structure and the outer design of all the trims of XUV 500 including the W4, W6 and the W8 are same and thus the buyer of a cheaper variant of the model will never feel bad. The upcoming W4 XUV 500 will come with the same design, same engine and etc. but the variant will not come with all the features which W8 and W6 come up with. Some of the features such as ESP, hill assist technology and the Hill Descent control system will be absent in the upcoming W4 XUV 500.
Apart from these safety measures, some other standard features including DVD player, a 6 inch touch screen infotainment screen, rain sensing wipers, rear parking assist technology, tyre pressure sensors, light sensing head lamps and etc. will be not available with the upcoming W4 XUV 500. The twin exhaust tips on the rear as well as the fog lamps on the front fascia will be absent in the W4 variant. As per the information, Mahindra is looking forward to make the new W4 XUV 500 available for sale by the end of this month and the price is expected to be around Rs. 10.99 lakhs only which is around 1 lakh cheaper than the W6 variant.
