The list of convenience features includes power and tilt steering, dual air-conditioning, electronically adjustable rear view mirrors, remote central locking, mobile charging points, glove box with laptop holder, remote fuel lid opener, follow me headlights, rear wash and wipe are just to name a few. The second and third row too remains fully foldable like the other higher spec XUV500 models.
The W4 also comes with a Micro Hybrid Technology along with an integrated music system with CD/MP3 player and four high quality speakers that offer relaxation and entertainment to the passengers.
Under the hood, this new variant is blessed with the powerful 2.2-litre mHawk diesel power plant similar to that of the W6 and W8 variants. The XUV500 W4 remains identical to its higher priced versions. The XUV500 W4 has ABS, EBD and 4-wheel disc brakes and its engine delivers a power of 140bhp and 330Nm of torque. The company has coupled this mHawk diesel power plant with a 6-speed manual transmission gearbox that releases the engine power to the front wheels and returns a class leading mileage and delivers exceptional performance.
Some other important features that make the W4 a smart choice are it’s dual airbags, side impact beams and crash protection feature with crumple zones and there seems to be no compromise on the braking and handling aspects of this SUV. All the wheels are fitted with disc brakes, which are further augmented with ABS and EBD braking mechanism. Furthermore, its tilt power steering system is very sensitive, which will assist the driver even under the low speed conditions by responding precisely.
The W4 is priced at NRs 47.5 lakhs. Already a popular model in India, the new XUV500 W4 packed with a range of technology, safety and comfort features, is expected to add to the popularity of XUV500 in the country. Although the XUV500 W4 has lost out on a lot of the fancy gadgetry that the XUV was so well known for, in terms of specifications and technicalities, the W4 is the same as the W6 variant and the product is still better equipped for an entry-level version of its SUV series. It is definitely a car that will give the competition a run for its money.
