The engine will come mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox along with 6-speed automatic gearbox as an option. Furthermore, this particular engine will be replacing the current 2.2-litre unit. Apart from this, the higher variant of the SUV might come with an AWD system. 


As for the prices, the Next-Gen Mahindra XUV500 is likely to be priced in the range of Rs 14 lakhs - Rs 20 lakhs (Ex-Showroom). Mahindra & Mahindra launched the first-generation XUV500 in 2011.
