Another query - I believe the third variant is a AWD and not a (part time) 4WD, which means low range will not be there. Is that correct?
Hi, there's nothing much to guess since most of the information is available in Mahindra XUV500 | Price, Review, Videos, Test Drive, Photos and Specifications | Latest SUV in India

W6 - 6 speed manual.
W8- will have 2wd/awd, there's no info about auto tranny.

Excellent pricing, I would say. There are certain quirks, for e.g. saw that the windshield wiper (front LH), looks so similar to the one in logan. The much discussed odd joints. pic attached courtesy zigwheels.

Man, I was spot on on the contest I guess. I put it at 11,95,000 Ex-show room. That's M&M for you. That is really master stroke to gate-crash the market like this. As all here opined, the thing has to be stripped down by none other than our Team-bhp expert(s) to really know if this is just another 'glittering Soap Box' or it makes real SUV sense.

Secondly, not many manufacturers around the world are able to do a monocoque SUV, they are mostly soft roaders. Remember this is first monocoque entirely from Mahindra so I have my doubts on the longevity, stiffness of the chassis.
Not too impressed with the pricing too - at 12.88 Lakhs Ex Delhi for the top end all wheel drive variant is expensive. If this is VFM pricing, Aria in my mind is priced well too.
Monocoque vehicles do not have chassis .. being a spaceframe doesnt means that the vehicle will disintegrate within some years of usage.. the webcast had shown the agencies / consultants with whom Mahindra has tied up for the development of this vehicle, and the names were some of the best in the auto industry..
As far as the creases and the styling lines are considered, these are the renditions of a running cheetah..
pricing , design , grill etc.etc. love it or hate it.. but take my word , when u sit behind that steering , all ur inhibitions will be flushed out.. i am lucky enough to have an early experience of the beast and it is nothing but a Wow !!

I have always been a Safari admirer (Tata), however Mahindra has earned my respect for taking this bold step... Such a pricing without compromising on the SAFETY features only shows that Mahindra has kept the Indian customer at par with Global customers !!!

Kudos to Mahindra & Mahindra and eagerly look forward to the initial test drive reports form the Team-bhp veterans. Hope this turns out to be the SUV i have been waiting to possess !

Did I said its ridiculous? I merely said its expensive in MY OPINION. I still don't like what I see of XUV 500. There is no language or sense to the design... its merely a mish mash of a million curves thrown around carelessly.

Just read the reviews on zigwheels. I am shocked to say the least. More than eagerly waiting for the tbhp review of it.
On paper, looks a hulk. More than features, its the interior color combinations that is mind numbing. It will not only eat up 10-15L SUV bracket but even the C and C+ segments if all thats written comes out true.
Funnily its a case of sleepless nights for competitors as well as potential customers

Just WOW! Except some exterior bits that i find bad, the car is fully loaded even the Entry Varient! I am just attracted to this car now! 11L for this is a steal, especially with the features included in the base varient! Now who all were thinking about buying the Force one? LOL!

Agree completely!
But What interior color combinations?

I respect your opinion, but just want to understand, if you are talking about the looks or the VFM pricing ?

In the previous post, you had mentioned about VFM and now about looks...??

He wasnt sounding like a fan boy,but you for sure are sounding like a Aria Fanboy..
12.88 Ex-showroom for W8 AWD,seems overpriced to you,can you please elaborate?

And what would be the correct price as per you Sir?

Would 8 Lakhs be OK for a car with ABS/AIRBAG et al or do you want it further lower?

May be on that yardstick Safari should be 5 Lakhs and Fortuner 10 Lakhs.

What say?

That's to accomodate shift to LHD without changing many components.
