Mahindra launched the much-awaited all-new Thar earlier this year and it has become an extremely popular product in the market. Even though Mahindra is slowly rolling out the all-new Thar from the production line, the waiting period has reached as many as 36-37 weeks, which translates into about 2-3 months. Well, Mahindra has a few more vehicles up its sleeves and one of them is the all-new Mahindra XUV500. The all-new Mahindra XUV500 has been testing on the roads for a long time now and the new spy pictures show the vehicle’s closer to production form. Well, here is a rendering video that gives us an indication on how the production version of the all-new Mahindra XUV500 will look when launched in 2022.
While the new spy pictures completely reveal the C-shaped DRLs dropping from the headlamps, this rendering image shows a similar outline but the shape is slightly different. Mahindra may offer an all-LED set-up with the XUV500 but the details are not known yet. The rendering is made by SRK Designs.
The all-new Mahindra XUV500 will also grow in size. It will be based on an all-new platform and will retain its monocoque chassis set-up. The longer 2021 Mahindra XUV500 will offer much longer legroom for the last row passengers. The rendering image also shows the flush-door handles that neatly integrates to the body of the all-new vehicle. This feature is likely to be offered only with the top-end version of the upcoming model.
Mahindra will also offer new alloy wheels and a new grille, that will make the vehicle look much more aggressive. We do hope that the all-new Mahindra XUV500 gets a masculine grille unlike the all-new Thar, which disappointed a lot of buyers. It has started a chain of reaction which has got aftermarket garages to swing into action and make new aftermarket grilles for the all-new Thar.
Just like the exterior, the cabin of the all-new XUV500 will get a lot of updates. The cabin will look much more premium compared to the current version and it will get a double-screen set-up just like new-age Mercedes-Benz vehicles. Further details about the cabin are not out yet.
The 2021 Mahindra XUV500 will get both petrol and diesel engine options. The petrol variants will get powered by the mStallion 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine that also powers the all-new Thar. It is likely to produce a maximum power of around 180 Bhp and will get an automatic transmission option as well. The diesel variants will get powered by a 2.2-litre motor but the power output will be higher than the current version of the vehicle.
