  • Its new headlamps come with an extension for DRLs.

  • Expected to feature connected car technology, dual-zone climate control, and a sunroof.
  • Could be powered by BS6-compliant 2.0-litre petrol and diesel engines.

A 2020 Mahindra XUV500 prototype has been spotted testing, revealing exciting design elements. The 2020 XUV500 with BS6-compliant engines is slated to hit showrooms in the second half of 2020. It’ll come with a redesigned dashboard and is expected to be loaded with features. Here’s a closer look: 


Despite the test mule sporting rudimentary headlamps, we could notice its housing, which gets an extension for what could be the LED DRLs. We also noticed the familiar 7-slat grille and the redesigned bumper with a slim air dam. A shoulder line runs through the profile right before kinking up above the rear wheel arch. At the rear, it will come with a pair of new LED tail lamps and a redesigned tailgate. 

Inside, the 2020 Mahindra XUV500’s dashboard layout seems similar to the Kia Seltos. There’s a floating infotainment system, which merges onto the instrument panel. Other notable bits include a redesigned steering wheel and new indicator stalks.  


We expect the 2020 XUV500 to feature connected car technology, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, dual-zone climate control, cruise control, steering-mounted audio controls, a multi-info display, a sunroof, as well as keyless entry with push-button start. Expected safety features include six airbags, ABS with EBD, rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, and electronic stability control. 

Under the hood, the 2020 Mahindra XUV500 could come with BS6-compliant 2.0-litre petrol and diesel engines. The BS6-compliant 2.0-litre mStallion petrol motor, which debuted at Auto Expo 2020, develops 190PS of power and 380Nm of torque. The new diesel motor is expected to develop more power than the existing 2.2-litre unit (155PS/360Nm). Both engines could be offered with manual and automatic options.  


Prices for the 2020 Mahindra XUV500 are expected to start over the existing model (Rs 12.30 lakh, ex-showroom Delhi). It rivals the Tata Gravitas and MG Hector Plus.
