Overview

MAHINDRA has repositioned its XUV500 seven-seat mid-size SUV to become an even more appealing proposition, swapping out its previous diesel engine for a petrol unit and introducing a new entry W6 model grade that brings the asking price down to just $25,990 driveaway.
 
This includes an automatic transmission and gives the relatively obscure Indian brand fresh ammunition with which to present its case to Australian families, particularly along the east coast where the vast majority of its dealers are located.
 
It’s hard to believe the XUV500 has been with us for six years already, available only with a diesel engine before now and initially with a manual gearbox before a long-overdue automatic gearbox arrived two years ago.

This is unequivocally Australia’s cheapest seven-seat mid-size SUV on the new-vehicle market, ready for you to drive off the forecourt with a petrol/auto combo at less than $26K.
 
Enough said? No. Please read on…
