The 2021 XUV500 which awaits a launch any time soon has been spotted testing again by one of our readers, Mr Sudhanshu Tiwari, at Solang Valley. We had earlier brought to you the spy shots of the XUV500 which you can see and read about in our stories linked below. Today we will discuss what new details the latest spyshots have to offer.

2021 Mahindra XUV500 – New features spotted!

This time we get to see the headlamp setup unmasked. By the looks of it, the headlights are expected to be full LED with new DRL pattern. The headlight also showcases some sharp lines which run throughout the setup. This headlight setup is however different from what we saw in earlier spyshots of the new XUV500 headlights hinting at headlight setups with halogen and full LED setups varying with variants.

Moving ahead, the grille on the XUV500 test mule seems to be of a completely new layout. The grille can also be seen with the lower lip exposed, giving the grille setup a fresh look. The number plate has been put on the centre of the grille, which we believe is done to hide the ADAS radar which the XUV500 is expected to come with.

The upper lip is expected to come with chrome garnish, although the test mule has it all covered. The roof-rails on the XUV500 are expected to come with load-bearing capacity for the non-panoramic sunroof models this time around.

Alloys on the test mule are also updated ones from what we saw in the earlier testings.

The tail-lamps on the 2021 XUV500 are expected to be in the form of a full-LED setup. The quarter-glass on this test mule looks very similar to what we see on the current XUV500 with body panel protruding below the quarter-glass. The 2021 XUV500 will come with rear washer-wiper setup as can be seen in the spyshots.

With very little details being revealed from the top, a cut on the roof hints at a sunroof installed on the test mule. A sharp element on the roof hints at a shark-fin antenna which is expected to come with the 2021 XUV500.

The 2021 XUV500 which might be unveiled any time soon is expected to come powered with a 2.2-Litre m-hawk Diesel Engine which could produce 185bhp and a 2.0-Litre m-Stallion Turbo-Petrol which could produce 190bhp. The XUV500 which is expected to be based on the Ssangyong Korando platform will come with as a monocoque chassis.
