The 2021 Mahindra XUV500 has been recently spied while getting tested. It’ll derive power from all-new Stallion petrol and updated mHawk diesel engine.
Mahindra & Mahindra has recently launched the new-gen Thar in the Indian market. The all-new model of the SUV has got so much popular among the enthusiasts that the off-roader is sold out in India till May 2021. Mahindra has also increased the prices of 2020 Mahindra Thar from 1st December. Moreover, the automaker is also planning to introduce the new-gen models of Scorpio and XUV500. The 2021 Mahindra XUV500 has been recently spied while getting tested on an Indian highway. The test mule was snapped via a phone camera. The video clip of the test mule was uploaded on YouTube by AutoTrend TV.
The all-new model of the SUV was heavily camouflaged, but one can easily spot the new LED headlamps along with the company’s 7-slat grille. It seems like the new-gen Mahindra XUV500 is close to its final production and is likely to hit the Indian shores by next year. The SUV will get some premium features like a panoramic sunroof, which will give an airy feel to the cabin. It’ll also get dual touchscreens just like that we have seen on high-end luxury cars. Outside, the SUV will get LED headlamps, LED taillights, roof rails and alloy wheels. When the first-gen model of the SUV was launched in our market, it came loaded with a lot of segment-first features, and we expect the carmaker to do the same with the 2021 model.
The all-new model of the SUV will feature new mStallion petrol and an updated version of the mHawk diesel engine, which was showcased by the automaker early this year at the 2020 Auto Expo. It’ll derive power from a 2.2-litre mHawk diesel engine and a new mStallion 2.0-litre petrol mill. The new turbocharged petrol mill is capable of shredding out 190bhp of peak power and 380 Nm of twisting force. Both the engine options will come paired with a 6-speed MT or a 6-speed AT. Once launched, the new-gen model of the SUV will compete with the likes of MG Hector, Tata Harrier and Jeep Compass.
