The 2021 Mahindra XUV500 has been spotted once again, this time at what looks like a roadside cleaning bay.

Sporting LED headlights and the signature Mahindra radiator grille, the spotted development mule, covered completely in camouflage wrap, has the flush-fitting door handles and rides on alloy wheels.

We also get an up-close view of the dashboard, which, as seen before, has the large dual display screens, multi-function steering wheel, climate control buttons and, in this particular model, a manual handbrake.

Each door has a cupholder good enough to hold a decent-sized bottle, while the seats are upholstered in beige material, as is the roof-lining. Speaking of which, the 2021 Mahindra XUV500 spotted car also has a large panoramic sunroof.

Passengers sitting in the second row have a central air con vent to keep them cool, while there are only 2 headrests on this particular row and it has a 60:40 split.

The last row is folded down, though it does not look like it goes all the way flat to the floor. Nonetheless, passengers do get their own cupholders. Although it is quite well equipped, the model that has been spotted is not a top-spec variant.

Expected to get launched by April next year, the latest-generation XUV500 will come powered by a 2.0-litre turbo petrol and likely a 2.0-litre turbo diesel, while a 1.5-litre turbo petrol might also be offered on lower-spec variants.
