Mahindra XUV500 to get a face-lift soon; new images!

Mahindra is equipping its lifestyle SUV the XUV 500 with a few extra tools to take on the new competition of the Renault Kaptur and Jeep Compass.

The XUV500 is a great SUV from Mahindra offering terrific value for money, offering many kit and features for the money you pay. And that is a great way for selling cars in India, especially SUVs as we love value for money vehicles, especially SUVs. But now there are a lot of new competition in the market aiming for the XUV500s place in this segment like the Renault Captur, and some are quite good like the Jeep Compass as well.

There are a few cosmetic tweaks all-round the new 2018 XUV 500 with subtle changes to the front and rear of the car. The ‘cheetah’ inspired (we still can’t figure out that bit) will get a few changes as will the headlamps with a new DRL design that’s less loopy and more mature. Front and rear bumpers will also get some changes as well as the wheels which might also get a black finish.

The new 2018 XUV 500 looks to get significant changes under the hood with a retuned 2.2-litre diesel engine that will output close to 170 bhp. That’s an upgrade of close to 30 bhp from the current model. Mahindra might also introduce a petrol model as well with a 2.2-litre four-cylinder unit with figures close to 120 bhp and 320 Nm of torques.

Mahindra should have the 2018 XUV 500 on the stands at the Auto Expo 2018.
