Default re: Mahindra launches XUV500 Automatic in Australia, Kenya & now Qatar

Mahindra has launched the Mahindra XUV5OO in Kenya too

It's been launched with a starting price of 3.5 million Kenyan shillings (INR 23,14,170.28). The Mahindra XUV5OO is distributed in Kenya by Simba Corporationís Xylon Motors.

Quote:
The Mahindra XUV500 facelift is listed in two grades in the country:
  • W8 AT FWD and
  • W10 AT AWD

Both will be powered by the 2.2-litre mHawk VGT turbocharged diesel engine that produces 103 kW (138.07 hp) and 330 Nm of torque. The engine is mated to an AISIN-sourced 6-speed automatic transmission which sends power to the front wheels in the W8 grade and to all four wheels through a Borg Warner-developed all-wheel drive system in the W10 grade.

The Mahindra XUV500 automatic will be available at Kenyan dealerships starting today.

Do a Google search and you will find more similar reviews. Mahindra invited lots of Australian/NZ Jounos to India for the launch/test drive of XUV 500 AT.
See the comments below the review. The locals doesn't seems to be impressed.
