Default Coming up! Mahindra XUV500 Xclusive ed (sunroof, electric seat, new infotainment system)

Thank you to Fenil Saji for sharing this information with other enthusiasts.

Earlier this week, a test mule of the Mahindra XUV500 was spotted. Spy images indicated that the vehicle was equipped with a sunroof and carried some cosmetic changes. Now comes the news that Mahindra will indeed be offering a new variant of the crossover with ten additional features soon. Based on the W8 trim level, it will be called the W8 Xclusive Edition.

Among the new features will be a sunroof, electrically adjustable driver seat, pneumatic bonnet, new infotainment system with internet connectivity and chrome inserts. The sunroof and electrically adjustable seat is borrowed from the SsangYong Rexton, while the pneumatic unit for the bonnet is taken from the new Scorpio.

Wow. Great news. I had previously asked for this in my wishlist and looks like it has been finally granted. The addition of Sunroof really completes the Xuv 500 in every sense of a luxurious SUV with the presence of every feature you one can ask for. And going by their pricing strategy, I don't think that this edition will be priced too high compared to the regular W8.

There is no change to the infotainment system. And the seat adjust is still the same (manual). Its price is 70k higher than W8. The bonnet is not hydraulic either.

If pictures are to be believed, i may be wrong but Exclusive will also have a Sun Roof. This is faintly visible in two pictures.

Well that will be a very welcome addition in a car touching 15+ Lacs

Looks like there are 2 variants of the Exclusive edition. Both get sunroof but electric seats are available extra for 16K.

Mahindra has released the pricing of the Xclusive variant. Starts at Rs. 14.49 lakhs. Read more details here: http://www.motorbeam.com/2015/02/car...s-14-49-lakhs/

Quote:
“Luxury Goes Through The Roof” says Mahindra, as the Xclusive edition comes equipped with an electric sunroof, which we spotted a few days back on a test mule. The list of new features includes 6-way power adjustable driver’s seat (optional), reverse camera, aluminium accented pedals, grey alloy wheels, illuminated scuff plates, voice messaging system, infotainment with internet connectivity, anti-pinch driver side window with one-touch up/down and hydraulic assisted bonnet.

2015 Mahindra XUV500 Xclusive Edition Prices (ex-showroom, Delhi) –
* Xclusive Edition FWD W8 (without powered driver seat) – Rs. 14.49 Lakhs
* Xclusive Edition FWD W8 (powered driver seat) – Rs. 14.65 Lakhs

To give you a perspective, the regular XUV500 FWD W8 version comes at Rs. 14.07 lakhs.
Basically an increase of Rs. 42k-58k depending on the variant. This would translate to an on-road increase of Rs. 55k-70k in some states and when we factor in the discounts running on the XUV currently, the price difference goes close to Rs. 1 lakh. Smart move by Mahindra to clear out old inventory before the facelifted XUV comes in.

Thanks for the details, Aman.

With Motorbeam article itself mentioning about only 2 vehicles allotted per dealership, I doubt this is about clearing old inventory.

I can imagine a "dealer" special-edition to clear out stocks. Put some decals, add a few accessories, bump up the price a bit.. you know the drill.

But this is clearly a "manufacturer" special edition. Sunroof and powered driver seat are fairly complex changes, definitely something that is best left at the plant level rather than dealer. Yes, it could create some excitement. But with just 2 available with each dealer, would it really help M&M sale more copies?

About the major facelifted XUV, my personal view is that its still 6-8 months away.

Your welcome Sanjay.

I thought so because Mahindra might be sitting on a huge inventory of White XUV's (the only colour available in Xclusive edition) and in order to help them sell faster, they decided to add a few features.

Also with regards to only 2 units available at each dealer, well they must have felt that it is better to distribute the stock all over the country so as to generate more interest because those buying this variant should feel they bought something "Exclusive"

I may be totally wrong though

Prabhu, thanks for sharing the details.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

On a separate note, here's a nit-picking observation.

See that image #3?
Coming up! Mahindra XUV500 Xclusive ed (sunroof, electric seat, new infotainment system)-xclusive-4.jpg

Xclusive edition is available only in W8 and the infortainment system buttons shown are that of W6.

Thanks Sanjay for redirecting to this thread.
I was hoping the sun roof atleast was included as a standard feature. This looks half hearted like the 'SPORTZ' variant which was launched few months back.

Also, M&M should find a proper place to mount the reverse camera. Though factory fitted it looks out of place on the bumper. An integrated camera on number plate light cover would have been good.
