The upcoming Mahindra XUV500 facelift has been spotted on Indian soil without any camouflage, ahead of its rumoured launch next month.
The latest spy images reveal the XUV500 facelift’s front and rear portion. The front end highlights a new chrome grille with a mesh design and chrome strips flanked by new twin-pod headlamps with projector lamps and LED DRLs (Daytime Running LEDs). The split air dam at the bottom is now a part of the grille itself. The fog lamps are placed right below the headlamps similar to the current model. The fog lamps do not have too much chrome, instead they get only vertical chrome strips. The ORVMs with integrated turn signals have been carried over from the present XUV.
At the rear, the facelift features a new tailgate design and tail lamps. The vertical styled tail lights have been replaced with triangulars with reflectors placed lower down. It gets a new chrome number plate garnish flanking mahindra logo right in the middle. It also has a new roof spoiler with an integrated HMSL and a redesigned rear bumper. The spotted XUV500 has a rear wiper and defogger too.
Since only front and rear sides are revealed so we can’t say anything about the side and interiors. But on the inside, the SUV’s facelift is expected to receive an updated infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity.
Media reports suggest that the XUV 500’s facelift will be equipped with an updated 2.2-litre, 4-cylinder diesel engine producing 168 BHP and 350 Nm of torque. Mahindra might also offer a G9 petrol AT variant equipped with a 6-speed automatic gearbox. Complete list of specifications will be revealed soon and till then stay tuned and stay updated!
