Mahindra & Mahindra today unveiled an updated version of its sports utility vehicle XUV500, with the price starting at Rs. 11.21 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).

While the entry level variant W4 is priced at Rs. 11.21 lakh, the highest trim W10 comes with a tag of Rs. 15.99 lakh.

"Today, as we launch the new-age XUV500, we have enhanced the finesse and driving experience while retaining the DNA of the cheetah-inspired XUV500," Mahindra & Mahindra Executive Director Pawan Goenka told reporters here.

The updated version sports added features, including electric sunroof, push button start and 6-way adjustable seats.

The Mumbai-based firm had first launched the XUV in September 2011.

"We plan to launch nine products, including two new compact SUVs, refreshes and variants in the current fiscal," Goenka said.

He added that the launch of the new XUV would help the company further strengthen its market share in the segment, where it currently commands some 40 per cent market share.

Asked about the expected growth for the company during the fiscal, Goenka said: "We expect to grow more than the industry which according to SIAM is expected to grow in high single digit during the fiscal."
