The Superheroes: Mahindra XUV500, Super XUV500 and Big Foot
You’ve already seen the awesome rally XUV in its element. Here, we have the civilised version of the beast. Consider this one the Clark Kent of the gang. You see, this particular one carries an AWD badge on the back. So it isn’t the XUV everyone has bought till now. This one’s nicer! While the rally XUV is not afraid to wear its underwear over the pants, the standard XUV is a little more nondescript.
Anyway, you get the Satanic front-wheel drive on the regular XUV, in this one, Mahindra gives you a Borg Warner on-demand all-wheel drive system. Everything else stays the same, so you get the excellent mHawk powerplant putting out 140bhp and 330Nm of torque mated to a six-speed manual gearbox. Okay, so you won’t be going sideways like those white-and-orange rally XUVs, but if you do intend do some trail driving, the AWD should be more than enough.
