New Mahindra XUV500 SUV facelift will mark its entry in the Indian market on 18th April, 2018. The refreshed version of the vehicle will be available in a total of six variants (five diesel and a petrol) in the estimated price range of Rs 13.5 lakh – Rs 20 lakh. For the 2018 model year, the SUV will receive subtle aesthetic and feature updates along with a more powerful diesel engine.
Major change will be made under the skin. The diesel version of the XUV500 facelift will make use of the 2.2-litre diesel powertrain boosted with a new-generation turbocharger and new ‘eVGT’ technology. The updated motor delivers a peak power of 155bhp at 3,750rpm and 360Nm of torque between 1,750rpm – 2,800rpm. Mileage figure of the updated unit stand at 15.4kmpl.

One must note that the more powerful diesel engine is reserved for the range-topping variant. The lower variants will continue to use the 140bhp, 2.2-litre mHawk diesel mill offering a mileage of 15.1kmpl. The petrol models will also derive power from the same 138bhp, 2.2-litre turbocharged engine.
On the exterior, the SUV will get an all-new grille with thick chrome surround, revised front bumper, new projector headlamps with LED DRLs, new triangular tail lamps (instead of vertical units) and re-designed tailgate with chrome accents. The top-spec variant will get dual tone faux skid plate at the front end. Read – New Mahindra MPV Is Coming Soon
