One of the premium SUV of Mahindra named XUV 500 has got a new automatic transmission in its BS6 avatar. The automatic variant is discontinued in the XUV 500 BS6 version. But now in 2020, it has got a new automatic torque convertor transmission sourced from Aisin.
The gearbox is a 6-Speed unit and comes equipped with the same 2.2-liter, 4-Cylinder, Diesel engine that produces around 153-155 bhp and 320 Nm of peak torque. The automatic transmission is only available with three variants- W7, W9, and W11(O). The rest of the variants are equipped with 6-Speed Manual Transmission.
The price range of Mahindra XUV 500 Automatic
|Mahindra XUV 500 Automatic-Diesel Pricing (Ex-showroom, Pune)|
|W7 AT||Rs 15.65 lakh|
|W9 AT||Rs 17.36 lakh|
|W11(O) AT||Rs 18.88 lakh|
The Automatic Version is decently expensive than the Manual one by Rs 1.21 lakhs. The automatic transmission is also equipped with features like- Creep function and a sequential manual mode.
The AT gearbox addition has been a smart move by Mahindra until they bring the new generation Mahindra XUV 500 the next year 2021. The upcoming Next Gen Mahindra XUV 500 2021 would be more powerful and premium than this. A more powerful engine setup would produce around 192 bhp of maximum power and 380 Nm of peak torque from a 2.0-liter, Petrol motor and a diesel one would be there with 180 bhp power figures.
However, there aren’t any design clue we got by the Mahindra but it would be completely a different beast in comparison to the current vehicle. As of now, Mahindra is only on the current model sale.
