Mahindra XUV 500 launched in Australia

Indian SUV maker has launched its cheetah inspired sports vehicle Mahindra XUV 500 in Australia today. It took almost five years for Mahindra Automotive Australia; the Australian arm of the Indian car maker to launch another product after it introduced the Mahindra Scorpio based Mahindra Pickup back in 2007. But better late than never and it is expected to be even better for Mahindra as it has launched the XUV 500 which is its world SUV. The SUV has recently passed the Australian crash tests ANCAP and has received 4 stars. The Mahindra XUV 500 price in Australia is AUD 29,900 which translates into Rs 16.58 lakh in Indian rupees. On the other hand the XUV 500 AWD version is priced at AUD 32,900 that is equal to Rs 18.24 lakh.

The Cheetah inspired SUV has been launched with lots of new additions to safety, interiors as well as exteriors. Since Australia has stricter norms than almost no norms in India regarding safety, Mahindra has put in airbags, crumple zone and a variety of other safety features to make it to confirm with the safety standards of Australia. Meanwhile, during the safety tests at the ANCAP, XUV 500’s monocoque design is what has been appreciated most that provides safety to the driver, front passenger as well as all the occupants. In Australia, the XUV 500 will be competing with Honda CR-V and other SUV segment cars in Australia.

The Australian XUV 500 has mHawk 140 common rail diesel with Variable Geometry Turbo. A petrol based XUV 500 could be in the offing. The XUV 5OO launch in Australia at this price will be a great advantage for the car maker and it will help Mahindra lead in SUVs in Australia as well as it is leading in Tractors and Pickups. The XUV 500 price in Australia is expected to set in commotion among SUVs and it is quite possible that this SUV will get an instant incredibly high sales. However, the fact that Mahindra still is not able to establish itself as a prominent car maker in Australia will be a big minus for XUV sales in Australia. But, it could be possible that this SUV will help Mahindra establish itself in the segment well.
