Default re: New Mahindra SUV for 2011 - Pics on Pg. 109 *UPDATE* XUV500 launched at 10.8 lakhs

great news if it is indeed launching on 28 Sep
I guess bookings will only begin from October and deliveries from Dec/Jan or so.
hope the top end one is priced well
may be worth considering just because at the end of the day it is an M&M and as per my experience the after sales service should be easy to handle in comparison with some others.
hope they do justice to this expectation.

Launch on 28th September is very good news. Expect the online reviews flowing in from 28th Sep. Even a T-BHP review possibly by 1st week of October - thats my guess. Some of the journos may already be invited for special screening.

Hi All,

Prebooking for the test-drives is also available on the website: Mahindra XUV500| Guess the Price contest | Win an XUV500
They have also uploaded a video from the project head of the XUV500 project (though no views of the XUV500 yet).

Regards,
Behemoth

Hi Ajay,
It mentions fog lamp in the video and seems to be a still shot of the front fog lamp mounted in the bumper.

The fog lamp design is weird. It looks so small on such a huge vehicle !

So top end 4x2 for 12.5 lacs & top end 4x4 for 14 lacs, ex-showroom, if that is right...

From the pics, (I dont know if it is already discussed) I can see it has 2 zone AC, a screen (maybe navigation or vehicle information like captiva), multiple buttons on the steering wheel (cruise control, bluetooth, audio controls?), unique front seats (especially the noticeable under thigh support) and many other things. With such loaded features (some of which is not available in any vehicle in the 15L bracket let alone a SUV), will M&M really launch it at < 15L? Will they be pulling a Kizashi out of their pockets?

I surmise the 4x42 top end to touch 17-18 OTR Bangalore.
Add another lakh to the AWD. That way they are well below the biggies by a good 3-4L.

Though I dont want this to happen, but going by what I hear and read, this may be so!

I heard from a dealer source today that there is indeed a full time AWD model that is going to be launched along with base variants.

If decently loaded Aria can come at 11.6L, then why cant the base version of XUV 5-O-O be launched at a similar price? And whatever you mentioned as features above will be available on the top end which should be 15L+ !

Wooooooooooooooooo Hooooooooooooooooo ! I am loving the instrument console. I am a big fan of interior lighting & I guess I just dumped Tata Safari / Aria from my mind!

Edit:: The gear lever gives me a feeling of a standing robot ! Also heard from ODMAG that the price announcement will be done on Sep 29, after the launch of vehicle on 28 Sept!

Guess they learnt the need of launching the base variant ASAP from the Aria episode. Good job anyway.

That is indeed good. My thoughts were only towards the ceiling of pricing of this product.
Hence the comments above. I hope sincerely hope, the top version is priced much below that price limit. But I doubt it would be so.
