Upcoming Mahindra Cars in India in the Next Two Years

Here’re launch and other details of the upcoming new Mahindra cars in India.

Famous for its utility and sports utility vehicles, the home-grown auto major, Mahindra ruled the segment for long. Ironically, it started losing ground in the segment when SUVs became a rage in India. Carmakers like Maruti Suzuki and Tata Motors are now giving tough rivalry to Mahindra in the UV space. Determined to regain lost ground in the segment, Mahindra has planned a slew of launches in the next two years. After launching the Marazzo MPV, Alturas G4 7-seater SUV and XUV300 subcompact SUV, the company is aiming to expand its product portfolio with a range of new models. The carmaker will also launch the next-generation versions of its existing SUV range. Here’s a look at all upcoming Mahindra cars in India in 2019 and 2020.

1. Mahindra XUV Aero

Mahindra & Mahindra had showcased the XUV Aero Coupe SUV concept at the 2016 Delhi Auto Expo, followed by debut at the 2017 Automobile Barcelona. Featuring sporty and futuristic design, the coupe SUV concept received good response from visitors. Face of the XUV Aero shares resemblance to the Mahindra XUV500, especially its headlamps and sculpted hood. Though, it gets new LED DRLs, hood vents, sloping roofline, flared wheel arches and high-positioned rear end.

Under the hood, the Mahindra XUV Aero Coupe SUV is likely to feature a 2.2-litre mHawk diesel motor generating a maximum power of 210bhp. The oil burner has an advanced combustion system, new-generation turbocharger and low pressure EGR technology that enhance its refinement and performance. The transmission duties will be performed by a 6-speed manual and an automatic gearbox. Media reports suggest that Mahindra might also introduce the electric version of the SUV. Among the slew of upcoming Mahindra cars in India, this one would be the most contemporary model, with a progressive design. Read More…

Expected Launch – 2020-2021

Expected Price – Rs 20 lakh to Rs 25 lakh

2. New-Gen Mahindra Thar

Thar has been among top favourites among off-road enthusiasts in India. But it’s a pretty old product now and still has a decade old platform that’s certainly can’t be considered safe. That’s why it surely requires a generation change, and that’s exactly what Mahindra is planning to do. This is surely one of our top favourites among all upcoming Mahindra cars in India. Though no official word on its launch date yet, we hope it to go on sale by the end of 2019 or early 2020.

The reason we believe it’s coming this year or early next year is because of the new safety norms that will be applicable, which will require all the vehicles to pass the crash tests. This means that the new 2019 Mahindra Thar too will have to have a better structure to clear the test, as the current one seems really old. Mahindra owned Italian design house Pininfarina could also help design the vehicle, while in technology SsangYong could play a crucial part. The 2019 Mahindra Thar will also receive a new 2.0-litre turbocharged diesel engine that is likely to offer about 140bhp of power and over 300Nm of torque. Read More…

Expected Launch – Late 2019 or Early 2020

Expected Price – Rs 7 Lakh – Rs 10 lakh

3. Mahindra KUV100 Electric

The next in our list of upcoming Mahindra cars in India is the electric version of the KUV100 NXT. As a reminder, Mahindra had launched the new KUV100 NXT during festive season 2017.

The launch of the Mahindra KUV100 electric is likely to happen sometime this year. Visually, the KUV100 Electric looks identical to the 2017 Mahindra KUV100 NXT. It will get Mahindra Electric’s new generation electric powertrain that will deliver range over 140km. Read More…

Expected Launch – 2019

4. New-Gen Mahindra Bolero

The new-generation Mahindra Bolero is one of the most-anticipated upcoming Mahindra cars in India. Similar to the Thar, the current Mahindra Bolero won’t meet the upcoming safety norms. The new Mahindra Bolero will share its platform and engine with the new Thar SUV. That means, it might get an all-new 2.0L turbocharged diesel motor that will meet the upcoming BS6 emission norms. The oil burner is likely to come with a 6-speed manual gearbox. While the new-generation model will retain the original design, it will receive new projector headlamps, LED DRLs, LED taillamps and several other styling changes. Interior will also be revised comprehensively. Compared to the current generation, the new Mahindra Bolero will have more cabin space for second and third row of seats passengers. Read More…

The SUV’s new model will be built on an all-new monocoque chassis, which will also be used by Ford for its new upcoming C-segment SUV. Design and styling of the new 2020 Mahindra XUV500 could be inspired by the next-gen SsangYong Korando SUV that broke cover at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show.

The 2020 Mahindra XUV500 will be longer and more spacious than the outgoing model. It will also receive several segment-leading features to compete against the growing competition. The SUV’s new-generation model could be offered with all-new 2.0-litre diesel engine that will also be used in the next-generation Thar. The new oil burner is expected to produce power close to 180bhp. If this happens, the new 2020 Mahindra XUV500 will become the most powerful car in its category.

The bigger version of the XUV300 will underpin the same SsangYong’s X100 platform. In the company product lineup, the Mahindra XUV400 will sit above the XUV300 and below the XUV500. Upon launch, it will be gun up straight against the Tata Harrier 7-seater and new Hyundai Creta 7-seater.

Rumour has it that the Mahindra XUV400 will share its powertrains with the XUV300. That means, the diesel version of the SUV will come with the 115bhp, 1.5L motor and the petrol model will use the 110bhp, 1.2L turbocharged unit.
