Earlier this year, the XUV500 petrol was spotted in Dubai. Now, the SUV has been launched in Qatar at prices ranging from Rs. 9.9 lakh to Rs. 13.7 lakh. The vehicle is available in three variants - W8 FWD, W8 AWD and W10 AWD AT. We are glad to see the AWD launched as well.

The exterior of the XUV petrol is similar to the diesel variant sold in India, except for a 'G140' logo on the fender. The car gets an all-black interior and an infotainment system similar to that is found in the Indian variant. But the W10 doesn’t get an electric driving seat.

According to the information available, the XUV500 petrol is powered by a 2.2-litre, turbocharged engine with a wastegate turbocharger that makes 138 BHP and 320 Nm torque. The engine is called "mHawk 140". It is offered with a choice of manual or automatic gearboxes. The W8 FWD comes with a manual gearbox while the W8 and W10 variants some in AWD and a 6-speed automatic gearbox with tiptronic mode.

Details shared by BHPian daywiz have revealed that the XUV500 petrol is equipped with static bending headlamps, projector headlamps with light guide, 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with 6 speakers, i-Pod, Aux-in and Bluetooth connectivity, voice commands, video playback, picture viewer, navigation, tyre pressure monitoring system, rain-sensing wipers, automatic headlamps and a glass-embedded antenna. The car is also equipped with disc brakes on all four wheels.

The SUV is offered with a choice of six colours. These include Sunset Orange, Pearl White, Opulent Purple, Volcano Black, Tuscan red, Dolphin Grey and Moondust Silver.
