Intelligent All Wheel Drive technology developed by Borg Warner ensures you are always in control of the vehicle, be it slippery surfaces, heavy rain, snow or even ice. Experience a seamless transition from 2WD to AWD without any driver intervention. The AWD is further fortified with NexTracTM. NexTracTM is the next generation, electronically controlled, on-demand Interactive Torque Mangement system. When required, it assumes control of the clutch and other vehicle systems. NexTracTM automatically controls vehicle systems like Engine Management System, Steering Angle Sensor and Anti-lock Braking System, and automatically redistributes torque between front and rear wheels.
The XUV500 hosts the first 6-speed transmission fully developed and tested in India. The 6 speeds enable two overdrives which help in optimum engine torque and speed resulting better fuel economy and acceleration. The self-adjusting clutch ensures that the pedal effort of a brand new and fully worn out clutch remains the same, giving a pleasurable drive over the life of the clutch.
The 2.2 litre mHawk140 engine delivers an impressive output of 140bhp and a torque of 330Nm. It sports the 5th generation variable geometry turbocharger which ensures instantaneous acceleration, taking the XUV500 from 0-60kmph in a mere 5.4 seconds.

Few vehicles are as well-equipped as the XUV500 to keep you out of harm's way. The vehicle comes with an array of safety features that make it a veritable fortress. The vehicle has at the heart of its fortification an efficient Electronic Stability Program (ESP). This coupled with features like Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic brake-force Distribution (EBD), Rollover Mitigation and Traction Control make the XUV500 one of the safest vehicles on the road.
ABS with EBD reduces braking distance substantially and enhances the safety of the driver and passengers. EBD ensures that based on the rate of deceleration during braking, the brake force is varied such that the rear wheels never lock preventing the vehicle from going into a spin. The force is varied between front and rear based on wheel reaction and rate of deceleration. The Hydraulic Brake Assist system applies maximum braking force in the shortest possible time during emergency braking, thus aiding you in bringing the vehicle to a standstill quicker.
Hill Hold control prevents the vehicle from rolling backwards when starting from a standstill on an incline, while Hill Descent control identifies steep inclines and engages itself to assist the vehicle down the slope with caution.
The ESP is always on high alert and constantly monitors the movement and direction of the car. When it detects loss of control, brakes are automatically applied and torque to the relevant wheel is reduced till vehicle stability is restored. Rollover Mitigation identifies potentially dangerous driving conditions that could lead to the vehicle rolling over. Well before the situation becomes threatening, it causes the ESP system to intervene and control the vehicle speed, thereby restoring stability. Rest assured, the only thing that'll go out of control is your heartbeat!
Six airbags reinforce the safety of the vehicle. Driver and passenger airbags, side airbags and curtain airbags cocoon you.
The XUV500 is equipped with disc brakes on all four wheels. The key advantages of disc brakes include lower pedal travel, which results in a better pedal feel, and high thermal dissipation, which results in lower fade of braking at high speeds and repeated braking situations. The benefit of all four wheels being equipped with disc brakes is a lower variation in brake performance between left hand and right hand brake assemblies. This results in better vehicle stability while braking, and a consistency in brake performance, which results in optimizing and improved ABS and ESP performance. Also, the Integral Parking Brake Calipers on rear ensure lower parking brake lever efforts. Hence, all four disc brakes aid in achieving reduced stopping distance and improved vehicle stability during braking.
