2018 Mahindra XUV500 will receive subtle aesthetic and feature updates along with a more powerful diesel engine.
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
