Next Gen Mahindra XUV500 Launch Delayed To April 2021
Mahindra will offer the SUV with petrol and diesel engine options while the petrol will come with two states of tune.
Only a few days after the 2021 Mahindra XUV500 was spotted testing on our roads, it has come to light that the launch of the SUV will take place by April next year.
While it was expected to be launched during the early part of 2021, there has been a slight delay in the process, the reason for which is unknown. Maybe COVID-19 has played a part in this as well.
We have explained in detail about the changes that the SUV will sport this time around and you can read it here. Further, there are other changes that the car will come with.
For example, there will be flexible seating with the option of captain chairs for the middle row, which is expected to be offered in the higher variants. A bench seat for the middle row will be offered on the lower variants.
This change is expected to provide a more premium feel to occupants who will also get more space inside in comparison with the model on sale at present that will continue to be sold alongside the 2021 XUV500, but priced lower.
Passengers will also get the latest connectivity features to play with and an updated infotainment system which will be more in tune with the times.
There will be more choices on the powertrain front too. The 2021 Mahindra XUV500 launch will see the car come with a petrol engine in two states of tune and a diesel motor.
Mahindra is expected to offer the new XUV500 2.0-litre mStallion turbo petrol engine in a 190 HP tune and a 150 HP tune. The 2.2-litre diesel is expected to get more power this time around.
Manual and automatic transmission options will be present and together with the different seat layout, there will be plenty of variants for customers to choose from.
When it gets launched, the 2021 XUV500 will rival the Tata Harrier and MG Hector and the upcoming Tata Gravitas and Hyundai’s 7-seat Creta.
