Here’s how the new 2020 Mahindra Roxor looks like. The automaker has completely changed the front look of the SUV.
Mahindra & Mahindra is one of the biggest utility vehicle manufacturer in India and as well as in other foreign markets. In the US, Mahindra Roxor is quite popular among the buyers, and it is based on the old-gen Thar. The automaker launched the Roxor in America back in 2018, and it has been in the news since then because of its original Jeep design. FCA filed multiple lawsuits against Mahindra for the design, and now the automaker is planning to introduce the new 2020 model of Roxor in the US. Here’s how the new 2020 Mahindra Roxor looks like.
This is the first set of images, which fully reveals the complete design language of the car. One can see that the automaker has extensively worked on the design of the SUV to prevent any sort of complication in the future. The front fascia of the Roxor has been completely redesigned, and it now seems wider with the unique styling of the front grille. The automaker has removed the flared wheel arches as they are now the part of fenders upfront. The bonnet of the SUV has also been redesigned and is wider than before. The front grille looks quite narrow, and the bumper is a small strip of metal that also exposes the wheels and suspension.
Illumination duties will be done by conventional round headlamps, but they are now expected to get LED lights. Apart from this, no other tweaks have been made on the SUV compared to the previous-gen model. Even with these styling tweaks, the car still looks quite retro. Nevertheless, we’re not sure that people will really like the new design of Roxor or not. In North America, the SUV falls under recreational vehicle category and are not road legal. Mechanically, it is powered by a 2.5-litre oil burner, which develops 61bhp of peak power and 195 Nm of twisting force. Transmission duties are done by a 5-speed MT or a 6-speed automatic. It is also offered with a 2-speed transfer case as a standard fitment.
