The new version of the XUV500 will be the next big Mahindra launch, and the updated SUV is expected to hit the market in mid-2021
The Mahindra XUV500 will finally get a generation update, and the version of the next generation SUV is one of the most anticipated cars in India right now. What we know so far is that the update will bring many changes to the table, including a design overhaul as well as a whole host of additional features compared to the current generation model.
While the new version of the three-row SUV is due to hit the market early next year, the 2021 XUV500 has been continuously spied on since the end of last year. So far the car has always been almost completely camouflaged, revealing only a few small details about its design.
However, Shoe R Kalania – IAB’s in-house digital artist is a resourceful person and has created a rendition of what the next-generation Mahindra XUV500 might look like using the details revealed in spy footage. Well, it’s not hard to ignore the similarity of the rendered car to the previous generation model.
Other than that, it comes with a drop-down LED DRL lighting theme, just like that of the XUV300. However, the XUV500 is expected to be a C-shaped unit. The car features a larger grille with Mahindra’s signature seven-slat design, flanked by full-LED headlights.
If you move to the side, the profile is also similar to the current generation model. However, the wheel arches are not exhibited in the same way as on the current generation XUV500. Spy tapes have revealed that the new generation model of the car will have flush door handles, so this can be seen here too.
It is also expected that parts of the body trim will be added around the SUV to make it look more robust. The next generation XUV500 will obviously get brand new alloy wheels, and this rendered car are diamond-cut five-spoke units. Although the rear end has not been rendered, we expect it to be completely redesigned from the current generation model.
