We have high expectations for the new-generation Mahindra XUV500 to possibly get a 2021 launch. Several test mules of this SUV have been spotted over time in India and now a spy video has been revealed displaying clear interior details of it.
What we can tell from the spy video is that this SUV could be the mid-spec variant as it was equipped with a manual parking brake. Highlighted fact includes bits like the panoramic sunroof which can excite many buyers. More we can detect multi-functional steering wheel, leather upholstery – beige upholstery, flush-fitting door handles similar to that of Range Rover, dual-display on the dash, and fake wood finish on the steering. Additionally, silver finish around central rear AC vents and 2 headrests are present. We can also see huge boot space with the third-row seats folded down.
As per the camouflaged test mule spotted in Kodaikanal of the new-generation Mahindra XUV500, it’s known to have a more aggressive front fascia. The rendered model sports redesigned headlamps with DRLs featuring twin lighting elements. The daytime running lights with new detailing are borrowed from the XUV300. The key highlight remains to stay at the rear with wrap-around LED tail lamps. The SUV will prove to be the one and only in its category to offer an Advanced Driver Assistance System which is not available in rival SUVs like Tata Harrier, the MG Hector, and the Jeep Compass.
The 2021 Mahindra XUV500 will go against the likes of Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, MG Hector/ Hector Plus, Tata Harrier, and the upcoming Tata Gravitas.
