If Mahindra XUV 500’s design was too extreme for you then you are in for some good news. Mahindra is working on the facelift of the XUV that will launch on the 14th November in India. The car was spied testing on Indian roads alongside the soon to be launched Mahindra’s own Creta rival and the TUV 300 Plus. The new 2018 facelift of the Mahindra XUV500 was heavily camouflaged but sources tell us that it will come with a much more sophisticated design this time around.
Features of the Soon To Be Launched Mahindra XUV 500 2018 Facelift:
The Mahindra XUV 500 facelift for 2018 will come with usual bells and whistles along with numerous cosmetic changes like any other car but sources tell the car has three major changes confirmed for now.
New Petrol Engine:
The Mahindra XUV500 will get an all-new petrol engine that will produce around 156PS of power. As the trend of diesel-powered vehicles is steadily declining in India, more consumers are shifting towards petrol powered vehicles. The new Mahindra XUV 500 2018 may be looking to target the customers in cities like Delhi where the petrol SUVs have suddenly gained momentum.
An all-new 2.2-litre diesel engine for the Mahindra XUV500 2018 Facelift:
The existing engine of the Mahindra XUV 500 will now be found in the new Mahindra Scorpio that launches tomorrow. This engine made 140BHP of power and help drive sales for the Mahindra Scorpio. Since the competition in the segment where Mahindra XUV500 sits has intensified after the launch of Jeep Compass and the Renault Captur, Mahindra is looking to give the XUV 500 a power boost to keep the customer satisfied.
A more sophisticated design for the Mahindra XUV 500 this time.
The Mahindra XUV 500 has all the bits and pieces to make any customer interested but what it always lacked was a sophisticated design. The car is famous for its value for money and features but the design was never a hit with people who liked to keep a low profile. Therefore the design of the Mahindra XUV 500 started feeling too cooked for these people which then looked towards something simpler like the Hyundai Verna.
The new 2018 facelift of the Mahindra XUV 500 is to be launched in February next year.
