The Mahindra XUV500 W3 variant has been launched in the Indian market. The company has priced it 12.28 lakh (ex-showroom). W3 is now the base variant of the Mahindra XUV500 variant lineup and will have fewer features in it. This variant has been lowered against competition from Tata Harrier, whose starting price starts from Rs. 12.70 lakhs (ex-showroom). This new variant was available as the first XUV500 W4, which was discontinued after receiving Facelift in April last year.
Tata Harrier was launched in January this year and since the launch, the car has become one of Tata’s best selling protests. Tata Harrier performed better than his competitors Mahindra XUV500 and Jeep Compass in the month of March and April this year.
This may have happened because the base variant of the Tata Herrier was priced less than XUV500. Now it seems that Mahindra did not take it lightly and launched the new XUV500 W3 variant. The W3 variant is actually a Pre-Facilift XUV500 W4. There will not be enough features here.
