You are in the market for a utility vehicle which can lug 5 to 7 people in relative comfort. For its plain drab interiors you do not like the Scorpio and Duster/Terrano just do not feel premium enough for their price tag.
Mahindra’s XUV500 goes over your budget, then what option do you have?
How about the recently launched entry level XUV500 W4 which comes at a greater than 1 Lakh price slash over the next W6 variant? If you are considering buying one, here are a few exclusive interior exterior pictures of the latest launch to give you a clear hang of what goes off the list and how does the car finally manages to look without all the bells and whistles!

1. Mahindra XUV500 W4 Front
So here is what goes missing:
Missing fog lamps
Missing side skirting (not visible in this pic, check other pics for this)
Missing Static Bending lamps (Pic not close enough). Static Bending lamps are additional bulbs in the headlamp cluster which lights up the side-road as soon as you turn your steering for a turn.
Tyres: This particular vehicle came shod with Maxxis branded tyres against the JKTyre, Apollo or Bridgestone of the regular XUV500s. Size, specs, wheel size tubeless everything remains same.
However, despite the minor slashes here and there, the basic layout and the fierce love-me-hate-me looks have been carried forward.
2. Mahindra XUV500 W4 Steering Wheel
Apart from this XUV W4 also misses out on the following features:
Smart-rain sensing wipers
Intelligent light sensing headlamps
Glass embedded antenna EBD
Hill Hold & Hill Descent Control
However, it continues with the following features:
Disc Brakes on all 4 wheels
Chrome scuff plate for both 1st and 2nd rows
Power adjustable ORVMs (however they are not power foldable)
Driver seat height adjust & adjustable seat belts
Flip key with remote central lock
All 4 power windows
Rear wash and wipe and demister
Points to Note:
XUV500 W4 comes only in two colour options – Silver and Black.
The interior theme in both of them is consistent
Upholstery is slightly lighter dual tone and has a different fabric as well (visible in a few pics)
