The Mahindra XUV500 has set its eyes on the environment by adding a little fuel-saving technology. Mahindra says the tech operates a stop/start when the vehicle is at a standstill and the gearbox is in neutral. The engine stops after 2.5 seconds and restarts when the driver puts a foot on the clutch pedal. However, a button on the facia will disengage the system when required.POSITIVE BOOSTThe introduction of this technology, Mahindra claims, is another example of its ongoing effort to give customers what they want, yet another is a change in interior colour from beige to black.Mahindra SA's CEO Ashok Thakur said the introduction of the seven-seater XUV500 was a positive boost for the company’s overall brand image and its sales figures. Thakur said: “Our range had been largely populated by vehicles aimed more at utility, durability and reliability."The XUV500, with its stylish, feature-packed looks, has helped to redefine this image.”
