Mahindra XUV500 Facelift First Clear Pictures Out

Snapshot: The first clear images of the XUV500 facelift are out which, reportedly, would launch in May 2015.

Mahindra XUV500 facelift has been on test runs for quite a time and has been spied multiple times, albeit camouflaged. But, this time around, our friends at Team-BHP have snapped the same undisguised. The first clear images of the XUV500 facelift are out which, reportedly, would launch in May 2015. The facelifted SUV has several cosmetic changes at the outside, while the interiors seem to be retained from the ongoing model.

Going by the images, the Mahindra XUV500 facelift flaunts a new hood at the front with restyled projector headlamps, chrome inserts and LED parking lamp lines. The orange turn indicators have been sacked in favour of a new and more contemporary ones. There is a new honeycomb mesh design front grille with a horizontal chrome strip at the top, and Scorpio-inspired floating black slats with chrome inserts. The revamped front bumper now has even broad air dams. Fog lamps too appear to be enlarged and their position has changed as now they lie just under the headlamps with chrome surrounds. The side profile of the SUV remains to be the same, except for the inclusion of a new set of 10-spoke alloy wheels.

Inside the cabin, the Mahindra XUV500 facelift seems to be the same as the current model. The dashboard, steering wheel, instrument cluster, and air-conditioner seem to be carried over from the current model. Though, centre console's reflective portion on the top is phased out, and the cowl above the infotainment system is redesigned to prevent reflection. Also, the cowl over the instrument cluster is not integrated into the dashboard. This would be the first update for Mahindra's flagship product in the country since its launch in September 2011.

Mechanically, the facelifted SUV would be the same as the 2.2L 4-cylinder diesel motor would continue to power it. New Mahindra XUV500 is expected to be launched in a price domain of Rs. 11-16 Lakhs (Ex. Showroom), while competing against the likes of Skoda Yeti and Tata Safari Storme.
