12 Mahindra XUV500’s Beginner Guide

Ever since it was introduced in the market, the luxurious Mahindra XUV500has made successful inroads in the hearts of those SUV enthusiasts who want a capable off-road vehicle. The XUV500 comes equipped with the best luxury features and can give established a run for their money. Such a car is highly necessary for a country like ours, which has miles and miles of unpaved roads and rocky terrains. We love to traverse long distances and navigate gravel and sand, which India has aplenty. So how do you satiate your adventurous thirst with this new SUV? Here are 5 ways you can conquer tough terrain with the cheetah of the roads — the XUV500

  1. Adjustable Suspension

    The XUV500 boasts an impeccable independent suspension system that consists of McPherson Struts with Anti-Roll Bar for the front and rear. This ensures rigidity of the chassis while you make through rocky terrain as well as minimal bumps, which otherwise would make the driving experience uncomfortable. The multi-link suspension at the rear has been tuned in collaboration with Lotus, who as you know are highly renowned in the world of motoring. So rest assured, you're getting the best suspension system out there.
  2. Hill Descent Control

    Hill descent control monitors the terrain and controls forward motion. The control is done on a steep descent. That means you don't need to worry about your speed, and can instead focus on steering safely down the hill. The Hill Hold Descent Control on the new age XUV500 prevents the vehicle from rolling backward when starting from a standstill on an incline. It also identifies steep inclines and engages itself to assist the vehicle down the slope with caution.
  3. Tow Hooks

    No matter what, you'll eventually get stuck. So, you'd better have tow hooks on your off-roader, which will help your partner pull you out. Also, even if your vehicle has all the above tools, it's important to remember you should never go off-roading alone in case something unexpected happens.
  4. Safety Tips while off-roading in the XUV500

    In terms of safety, the XUV500 gets dual airbags as standard across the range with the top variants additionally featuring ESP (electronic stability program, a system that increases safety by detecting and reducing skidding), roll-over mitigation and curtain airbags. Why are these features essential while driving in the rocky terrains you ask? Well because there are enormous safety risks present when you are off-roading, and if proper care and prevention isn't taken, it can prove to be deadly.

    This is how you can make the most of your XUV500 while conquering rough terrain. Trust me, you will not be disappointed and instead enjoy the guilty pleasures of driving one of the most capable SUVs in India! suv in india !
