2014 Mahindra XUV 500 W8 4WD Review

This variant is the high-end variant with all possible features that one expects of an SUV and addition features beyond the expectations of a car buyer. First of let us clear the gas about all drive wheel. All-wheel drive allows power to be distributed among the wheels in any configuration. Rather than picking one of the front wheels and one of the back wheels, a vehicle with all-wheel drive can choose whichever wheels have the most traction, giving a driver optimum road grip. For example, an all-wheel-drive system could transfer power to only the front wheels or only the back wheels, whereas a four-wheel-drive car could only choose between the left and right side. All-wheel-drive vehicles tend to get slightly less gas mileage due to the added weight from the multiple-wheel-drive components as well as the extra power required to engage more wheels.

Better weight distribution in this model provides more consistent handling and allows more evenly distribution of a vehicle's weight across its frame. W8 AWD model intends for off-road use and is more capable of moving on muddy surfaces or through shallow water. Since all four wheels are capable of propelling the vehicle forward, it can continue to drive even if one or two wheels lose traction due to slippery surfaces such as ice, snow or mud.

The Interactive torque management in the SUV automatically redistributes the torque between the front and rear wheel to maneuver the XUV 500 out of trouble. This seamless transition from 2WD to AWD without any driver’s intervention gives you a level of handling prowess unmatched by conventional vehicle. Rest, all the features are similar to W6 2WD model.
