Mahindra XUV500 became an instant hit in the Indian market when it was first launched. After a facelifted version of the SUV was launched in the Indian market, Mahindra is currently working to launch the all-new XUV500. The upcoming vehicle will be launched in the Indian market next year and before that, the vehicle has been spotted testing on the Indian roads multiple times. Once again, the upcoming Mahindra XUV500 was spotted testing under heavy camouflage and this time, the pictures also got a glimpse of the dashboard of the vehicle.
The all-new Mahindra XUV500 is expected to be showcased at the 2020 Auto Expo that is scheduled to happen in February. The all-new vehicle will look completely different from the current version of the model. While the exterior of the upcoming XUV500 looks much bigger and wider than the current version of the car, the dashboard has been updated completely too.
The new pictures by MotorBeam show that upcoming Mahindra XUV500 will get a layered design when it comes to the dashboard. The vehicle will get angular design instead if the rounded and flowing design of the current vehicle. Even though the interior of the vehicle is camouflaged, the pictures reveal that there will be a floating-type infotainment system, which will be much bigger than the current screen of the XUV500.
Also, the vehicle gets a new multifunctional steering wheel, that is can be used to control various features of the infotainment system and other things like the cruise control system. The other major change that can be spotted in the picture is the instrument console. The console itself is not visible in the picture but most likely it will get a large LCD display like the Tata Harrier. The position of the AC vents has changed too. The all-new Mahindra XUV500 will continue to offer 7 seats and the interior of the vehicle will be plush and comfortable.
On the outside, the XUV500 will grow in size. It will also translate into bigger cabin space. In all, the all-new Mahindra XUV500 will get a lot of new features all around. The spy pictures also show that the Mahindra XUV500 will get new pull-type door handles, which can be seen on the Range Rover Velar. The third-row seating space is also expected to grow due to the overall length of the vehicle.
Mahindra is working on an all-new 2.0-litre diesel engine that will power the next-generation Mahindra and Ford vehicles in India. The all-new engine will be BS6 compliant and will produce a maximum power of around 180 Bhp, which will make the XUV500 as powerful as the Jeep Compass and the MG Hector.
