The new Mahindra XUV500, which is expected to come sometime this year, is being tested regularly. With regular spy shots flowing in and each new spy shot revealing new and exciting details, the new XUV500 is becoming a much-awaited product. We have again received new spy shots that have been sent to us by one of our readers. In this article, we will discuss the new details that are being revealed from the latest spy shots.
What are the new details?
The car under testing is mostly the top variant. The test-mule can be clearly seen sporting LED tail-lamps. Also, the test-mule can be seen sporting flush door handles that are mostly expected to be side-pull operated, similar to what we get to see on cars like the Nissan GT-R. A rear-parking camera can also be seen on the tail-gate. A rear-spoiler, as well as a rear-wiper, can be seen installed on the test-mule. Also, from the images, the top variant is expected to get light-tone interiors. With close inspection, it becomes clear that the new XUV500 could also get door guards; at least with the top variants.
The new XUV500 is expected to come with a 2.2-Litre m-hawk Diesel Engine that will be capable of producing 185bhp. A 2.0-Litre m-Stallion Turbo-Petrol is also expected on the XUV500 which is expected to produce somewhere around 190bhp. Also, with the new XUV500, automatic as well as manual gearboxes are expected. Both of them are expected to be mated to the petrol and diesel engines.
The interiors on the new XUV500 are expected to be much premium in comparison to what the current-gen XUV500 offers. A single-piece display is also expected with the top-variant. The XUV500 will be 7-seater, similar to the current one. The XUV500 was expected to launch earlier, however, the shortage of semi-conductors has pushed the launch timeline further. You can read more about it in the article below.
The upcoming XUV500 is expected to come with advanced safety features which will help the XUV500 compete with modern competition like the MG Hector Plus that comes with multiple features to attract buyers. Some of the expected features are ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems), lane assist, park assist, engine start-stop, a panoramic sunroof and connected car tech. Electronic handbrake is also expected on higher trims. The lower trims are mostly expected to get mechanical handbrake.
