MUMBAI, May 10, 2019 – Mahindra Motors just launched a new entry level W3 variant of its popular sports utility vehicle XUV500. The new base variant has been launched at a price of around $17,460 (ex-showroom price Mumbai) based on today’s rate of 70 rupees per dollar. The new entry-level model has been made available at Mahindra dealerships effective immediately.


The new W3 variant of Mahindra XUV500 will replace the W5 trim as the variant which is priced at $18,285 (ex-showroom price Mumbai). Despite undercutting the W5 variant by about $830, the Mahindra XUV500 W3 variant does not miss out on the features at all.


The new Mahindra XUV500 base variant is powered by the same 2.2-liter mHawk diesel engine capable of dishing out 155bhp of max power and 360Nm of max torque at 1750-2800 rpm. The motor comes paired to a six-speed manual transmission.


Mahindra Motors does not have showrooms for its SUVs in the United States, but it has showrooms for its tractors and farm equipment in six locations: two in Bloomsberg, Pennsylvania; and one each in Panama City, Florida; Massillion, Ohio; Bridgeport, West Virginia; and San Antonio, Texas.
