Is Mahindra XUV 500 available in diesel version in India?
By: Ujjal on 16 august 2014
Mahindra XUV 500 is intended to be used for long drives and demands heavy power and torque output. Diesel engine versions are best suited for the purpose. As such Mahindra XUV 500 is available in only diesel engine version. Diesel engine always favours faster sales that too for utility vehicles. Comparitively lesser price for diesel fuel helps for long term usage.

Yes as the above mentioned review. In India as of now only diesel variant of XUV 500 is available. This is because the diesel engines have more towing capacity which is very much required in a SUV, and comparatively diesel is much cheaper in India and diesel engine gives better mileage than the petrol engine. Also the combustion power of diesel fuel is better than that of petrol.
