Highlights

  • All new Mahindra XUV500 is likely to be launched in India by H1, 2021
  • The new XUV500 will get heavy visual updates and more premium features
  • The next-gen XUV500 will come with new 2.0-litre petrol & diesel engines

The new-generation XUV500 SUV will be the next big launch from Mahindra and Mahindra. The utility manufacturer is extensively testing the next-gen XUV500 in the country, courtesy of several spy pictures that we have already seen on the internet. Yet again, a test mule of the Mahindra XUV500 has been spotted doing rounds. The new spy images suggest that the new Mahindra XUV500 could feature advanced driver assistance technology (ADAS), similar to what we recently on the new MG Gloster full-size SUV.

The new Mahindra XUV500 will be a lot more premium and gets a host of smart features

A closer look at the spy images reveals a radar sensor integrated into the front bumper and a front-facing camera is mounted at the top of the windshield. If the SUV comes laden with level 1 autonomous technology, sensors will play a crucial role here particularly for systems such as frontal collision warning, autonomous emergency braking, lane departure warning and adaptive cruise control. If launched with ADAS, it will be the first SUV in its segment to be equipped with Level 1 autonomous technology.

Under the hood, the SUV is likely to be powered by a new 2.0-litre diesel engine that has been under works for quite some time now. The new oil burner is expected to be more powerful than the current 2.2-litre engine. Apart from the diesel engine, the Mahindra XUV500 is also expected to be seen in petrol derivative, which could be powered by a 2.0-litre mStallion turbocharged unit. It will be tuned to make 187 bhp and 380 Nm of power figures.
