Mahindra has already declared multiple cars for their future line-up. Mahindra is looking to expand its portfolio in the country with cars in different segments. The brand has also declared that it will be re-launching its very successful Mahindra XUV500 against C-segment SUVs like the Creta. With a new segment as a target, we expect Mahindra to do things a bit differently now. In today’s article, we will discuss our expectations of the new Mahindra XUV500 Creta competition. Let’s go.
The new Mahindra XUV500 will be a car that will solely focus on other C-segment SUVs, especially the Hyundai Creta. The car will be smaller in dimensions compared to what it is now. It is mostly expected to be around 4.2m in length. The car will come with a stylized light setup on the outside. The tail lamps, headlamps and fog lamps will mostly receive the LED treatment. The car will even get 17-inch alloy wheels, similar to other cars that will be in its competition. The car will sport a comfortable cabin as well. Leather seating & upholstery, spacious legroom & knee room, height adjustable headrests, electrically adjustable driver sear and available armrests will be some of the key features in the cabin.
We expect Mahindra to offer a 1.2-litre petrol engine and a 1.5-litre diesel engine, similar to what it offers with the XUV300. The 1.2-litre petrol engine makes 109bhp & 200Nm of torque. The 1.5-litre diesel engine makes 115bhp & 300Nm of torque. The engines are already powerful when compared to the Creta as well. However, we expect Mahindra to tune up the engines to produce more power, just to add an extra flare. There is a high possibility that Mahindra could do this, similar to what it did with the XUV300. Both engines will come mated to manual as well as automatic gearboxes in order to offer a variety of options to buyers. Other than this, we expect Mahindra to offer the car with a 2WD only.
Mahindra XUV500 Creta competition features
We believe Mahindra could do really well in terms of features. Mahindra has the capability to offer many segment-first features, similar to what it did with its compact SUV. Dual-zone AC, 7 airbags, a panoramic sunroof, a big touchscreen infotainment system, connected car tech, premium sound system, multi-drive modes, ambient lighting and steering modes will be some of the prominent features. Other than this, we also expect Mahindra to offer at least a semi-digital instrument cluster with the XUV500. The car will mostly come with a 5-star safety rating as well.
The Mahindra XUV500 will come priced similar to the Hyundai Creta. The car will surely take on the competition with its tough build quality, multiple segment-first features and comfortable interiors.
