India Built Mahindra XUV500 2.2L Diesel SUV Benefits from K&N Washable Air Filter

reusable air filterThe Mahindra XUV500 is manufactured by the Indian automobile company Mahindra & Mahindra. The XUV500 is a mid-size SUV available in three different trim levels, as well as all wheel drive. The only engine available in the XUV500 is a 2.2-liter mHawk140 direct injection turbo diesel engine similar to the engine found in the Mahindra Scorpio. The Mahindra XUV500 has become increasingly popular in the Indian market, and can be exported to countries like South Africa, Australia, and Chile.

Owners of 2012, 2013, and 2014 Mahindra XUV500 W4, W6, or W8 models with a 2.2L diesel engine can now equip their mid-size SUV with a replacement diesel air filter from the authority in washable air filters, K&N. The 33-3023 reusable air filter is designed to fit into the stock air filter box of 2012-2014 Mahindra XUV500 2.2L turbo diesel models without any need for modifications. K&N replacement air filters are made with specially woven cotton gauze. Because cotton, by nature, is more breathable than paper, a K&N replacement air filter can flow more air than a typical paper air filter. More air can result in increased performance and better acceleration.

chartIt would be false to assume that an increase in airflow with a K&N diesel air filter comes at the expense of filtration efficiency and engine protection. K&N engineers place filtration efficiency and dirt retention as a priority when developing a diesel air filter. This diesel air filter uses design elements that go above and beyond our standard automotive air filters. K&N knows that a Mahindra XUV500 diesel could be subjected to some of the most extreme conditions on the planet. This is why K&N used four layers of our special tight weave cotton gauze sandwiched between wire mesh to form extra deep 1-1/4” pleats. Four layers of 1-1/4” deep pleated tight weave cotton filter media allows diesel air filter 33-3023 to outflow the stock air filter, hold a lot of dirt for long service intervals, and offer 98.99% overall filtration efficiency.

K&N performs filtration efficiency testing following the internationally recognized ISO 5011 protocol with ISO coarse test dust to guarantee that our air filters will provide high airflow without sacrificing engine protection. Calling this test dust coarse is almost absurd, as 22% of the dust is rated at 10 microns or less. To provide perspective, a human blood cell is typically between 6 and 8 microns across. Detailed filtration test results for K&N air filter 33-3023 are available for viewing.

Perhaps more exciting than the increased performance that comes with a K&N replacement diesel air filter is the fact that they are also a washable and reusable air filter. The ability to wash and reuse a K&N air filter means that it will pay for itself over time. The K&N diesel air filter for 2012, 2013, and 2014 Mahindra XUV500 W4, W6, or W8 models with a 2.2L diesel engine can be washed and made like new using one of the K&N Recharger air filter service kits.

The K&N replacement diesel air filter for 2012, 2013, and 2014 Mahindra XUV500 W4, W6, or W8 models with a 2.2L turbo diesel engine is manufactured in the United States and backed by the K&N Million Mile Limited Warranty. Replacement air filter 33-3023 is designed to provide increased performance, reusability, and long air filter service intervals without any need for modifications or tuning for the following Mahindra XUV500 models:

2014 Mahindra XUV500 2.2L
2013 Mahindra XUV500 2.2L
2012 Mahindra XUV500 2.2L

K&N diesel air filter 33-3023 is designed as a direct air filter cross reference for the following part numbers:

Mahindra 0313AAM00521N
