This time, we are given a full view of the new dashboard design of the production-ready XUV500.
New-gen Mahindra XUV500 will get a plush dual-screen setting for the interior
In the earlier spy pictures, it was revealed that the Mahindra XUV500 got a dual-screen set-up. The latest images give us a closer look at this new dashboard design. As per the new spy shots, the double-screen setting looks similar to the unit used on the Mercedes Benz EQC, comprising of both the infotainment screen and the instrument cluster display. This high-end feature instantly makes the interior plusher and more premium. It should be noted that the Mahindra XUV500 is the first car in Mahindra’s range to get this up-market set-up. Looking at these images only, we could not tell if the two screens will work individually or not.
Apart from the highlight of the new dual-screen set-up, it is also revealed that the XUV500 will come with a dual-tone dashboard with leather or faux-leather used on the lighter-coloured part. The air vents are located under the middle screen and above the control panels with rotary knobs. The steering wheel of the new Mahindra XUV500 will be integrated with multiple controls and buttons for different functions.
Mahindra XUV500 will get a extensive interior makeover
Under the hood, 2021 Mahindra XUV500 is provided with two engine choices, a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol unit or a 2.2-litre turbocharged diesel engine. Both engines will come with a manual and automatic gearbox.
It is a widely known fact that Ford will also manufacture its own version of the XUV500 as a part of the collaboration with Mahindra. Accordingly, the American car brand will deliver some modifications on the new-gen Mahindra XUV500 and launch it under its brand. While the exterior will be different, Ford’s SUV will share the mechanical parts with the Mahindra XUV500. The new Mahindra XUV500 is expected to hit the showrooms in the third quarter of 2021. It will go on sale under two seating configurations, six-seater or seven-seater version.
