Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd, a part of US $20.7 billion Mahindra Group, has launched its stylish new XUV500, a 7-seater SUV in New Zealand, in partnership with DDW Ltd., its New Zealand distributor.
The base W6 (FWD) version of the XUV500 is priced at NZD 29,990 (GST Inclusive + ORC), with its features covering all key elements of safety, style and convenience. The company also showcased the S10 version of its Mahindra Pik-Up ute.
The new XUV500 bridges the gap between style and adventure, luxury and ruggedness, performance and economy. The petrol-powered XUV500 takes the driving experience to the next level with an easy cruising capability on city roads as well as in challenging terrain.
