The 2020 Mahindra XUV500 is will be priced very competitively. The car has recently been introduced in the W3 variant. This base variant has lowered the price of the car and made the 7-seater SUV more affordable and it attracts more customers from the Hyundai Creta and the XUV300 pool of buyers. Our estimate is that the base model of the car should start somewhere in between Rs 12 to Rs 22 lakhs

2020 Mahindra XUV500 Platform
The Mahindra XUV500 will be based on the underpinning/platform of the Ssangyong Korando. We expect the platform to be maxed to its limits for the new XUV500. The current generation is bigger in terms of every dimension – length, height, width and wheelbase than the XUV500. The car will be made with a lot of bigger than the Korando which is smaller than even the current XUV500. We can expect bigger tyres and the chassis to be built in order to accommodate the third row and leave some room for the boot.

2020 Mahindra XUV500 Design
While the XUV500 will borrow a lot of cues and stying from the Korando, the car will be Mahindra in design. The cheetah inspired looks of the XUV500 will be maintained. The signature headlamps and the luxurious interiors too. The car will be made with a lot of significance given to the existing stance and design of the XUV500. The car will be a complete design overhaul in terms of looks. it will be interesting to see how many Ssangyong design cues, interior bits and things like buttons make it on the XUV500.
There has been a piece of news that the XUV 500 will do away with the old Cheetah claw design of the handlebar. Instead,it will have a new premium feel to the vehicle which will be of the body flushed handlebars. This will be inspired from the Range Rover Velar. The vehicle has already spotted a few times on the road while being tested and it has been confirmed that the door handle will change on the XUV500.
