Mahindra has already set its eyes on expanding the SUV line-up in the country. The brand made clear its plans of launching nine products in the country in the coming years that will help it gain a stronghold on the Indian car market, once again. One of the proposed nine products is the brand’s first coupe SUV. This SUV will be based on the brand’s XUV Aero Concept that was showcased during Auto Expo 2016. The car is mostly expected to be called the Mahindra XUV900. In today’s article, we will look at five things we want on the Mahindra XUV900 Coupe.
Since this will be the first SUV coupe from Mahindra, we want it to come with looks that will make it stand apart from the other cars that the brand offers. The brand owns Italian design firm Pininfarina. Mahindra could very well utilize the Italian experience in styling its very unique offering. Sleek headlamps & tail lamps, well-proportioned exteriors and upmarket interiors are expected. The brand might even offer 19-inch wheels to give SUV coupe a masculine personality.
The fact that Mahindra will be offering powerful engines with its upcoming XUV700 is hidden from none. Both petrol and diesel engine will come with segment-leading power figures. We expect the same engines to be extended to the coupe SUV as well. Moreover, Mahindra might up the power figures by a bit in order to enhance the pleasure and thrill of driving the XUV900 Coupe.
Coupe cars are famous for their extremely aerodynamic rooflines. In order to integrate the design on an SUV, the brand might offer it with a notchback styling. This will serve two purposes. First, the coupe design would maintain. Second, the boot space would not have to be compromised. This will allow the Mahindra XUV900 to be stylish and practical at the same time.
Sporty driving dynamics
With the car set to follow a sporty design language, we expect the brand to complement the design with sporty driving dynamics. Mahindra might tune the suspension in order to give the car superior handling and cornering abilities, that too at high speeds. We also expect the brand to offer a retractable rear spoiler with the coupe SUV, that will help the car hold its ground at high speeds and inspire confidence in the driver.
Mahindra has been paying a lot of attention to the features that it loads its products with. Even the upcoming XUV700 will come with multiple segment-first features include a single-piece display, ADAS, smart air filter, etc. We expect Mahindra to load the car with these features. Apart from these, we expect Mahindra to offer some more features with the XUV900.
