Mahindra XUV Aero was showcased the 2016 Auto Expo. This is the company’s first coupe-looking SUV. Designed to impress and this is what is its USP. The BMW X6 and other coupe-SUVs have been doing well for the company. Now, with the new XUV Aero, it is looks to create a new segment for the Indian audience that is affordable and makes a style statement. So, what does the XUV Aero have too offer?

Mahindra XUV Aero Design

In terms of styling, the XUV Aero has derived its design from the XUV. However, this looks a lot more stylish and appealing. The headlamps have LEDs and this fascia stands out in the crowd. Mahindra XUV Aero has a sporty side profile. The fastback rear makes it look appealing. The concept version shown at the 2016 Auto Expo had suicide doors. This made it look a lot more stylish. The rear too on the XUV Aero is stylish and looking stylish. The other important aspect of this XUV Aero is its rear, which again looks different.

Mahindra XUV Aero Interiors

On the inside, the XUV Aero is the same XUV500. There is the same dashboard with similar spacing. The third row has been taken off. This has been done as there won’t be sufficient head room for the third row passengers. At the same time, even the length of the Aero will be a tad smaller than the conventional XUV. There will be a larger sun roof on offer. Mahindra might pack this SUV with some additional features as well. We aren’t certain about it, as the company hasn’t announced any details on this new upcoming model.

Mahindra XUV Aero Engine

Mahindra will continue to offer the XUV Aero with the same 2.2-litre diesel engine or maybe the new 1.99-litre mHawk. Both are the same engine blocks, the latter was introduced as bigger diesel engines were banned in NCR. The second engine on offer with the 2.2-litre petrol engine. This will be the first time, Mahindra will get such a large engine in India. By the end of this year, the XUV500 and Scorpio will be getting this petrol engine. At the moment, the company is exporting Scorpio and XUV500 with this petrol engine.

The transmission on offer will be a six-speed manual and even an automatic one. The company will give both the engines as it will make it easier to carry forward the same engines.
