New Mahindra XUV500 W3 base variant launched

9th May 2019 5:15 pm

Mahindra has introduced a new W3 variant to the XUV500’s line-up, which replaces the W5 as the new base variant.

Mahindra has introduced a new base W3 trim for the XUV500 which is priced at Rs 12.28 lakh (ex-showroom Coimbatore). The new entry-level XUV500 W3 narrowly undercuts the starting price of the Harrier (Rs 12.70 lakh). The new trim was earlier available as the XUV500 W4, which was discontinued when the model received a facelift in April, last year.

Visually, the XUV500 W3 features a host of changes on the inside and out, when compared to the higher trims. The exteriors have been stripped of all the black body cladding and chrome inserts. The front end looks similar to the higher variants with the main difference being that the headlights no longer have LED DRLs, there are no fog lights and the chrome from the grille has been replaced with a grey finish. Coming to the side, the W3 rides on a set of 17-inch steel wheels without any hub-caps and the black accents on the pillars have also been removed. Around the back, the XUV500 W3 does not come with a wiper and washer.

On the inside, the XUV500 W3 gets all-black interiors and does not get soft-touch materials. It gets black fabric seats. Unlike the W5 variant, the W3 doesn’t get any audio system. The rest of the cabin sports the same layout as all the other variants.

Feature-wise, the XUV500 W3 gets projector headlights, engine start-stop (mild-hybrid system), power windows for front and rear seats, electrically adjustable ORVMs (although not power folding), central locking, and front and rear air conditioning.

Mechanically, the XUV500 W3 comes with the same 2.2-litre, four-cylinder m-Hawk diesel engine which is tuned to produce 155hp and 360Nm of torque. The engine will be paired to a 6-speed manual gearbox.

In related news, Mahindra has begun work on next-gen XUV500, which will see an Indian market launch sometime in 2020.
