Mahindra has finally launched the petrol variant of the XUV500 in India.

This ‘G AT’ variant has been priced at Rs 15.49 lakh (ex showroom, Delhi).

The new Petrol XUV 500 (G AT) trim comes loaded with all the bells and whistles. The XUV500 G AT gets a seven-inch touch screen infotainment system with Android Auto. The petrol SUV is filled to the brim with features like automatic projector headlamps, rain sensing wipers, key-less entry with push-button start, cruise control, automatic climate control with rear AC as well. The driver seat is 8-way adjustable and with an adjustable steering wheel.
