Mahindra XUV 500 images leaked before September launch

An NDTV Car’n’Bike fan from Chennai managed to capture some images of interiors of the much awaited Mahindra’s XUV500 SUV from a test vehicle on its rounds in Chennai. From what the images show the new car will sport premium interiors to be priced a little above the top end automatic Scorpio.

Although Mahindra’s SUVs have never been accredited as ‘good lookers’ the new XUV500 might change the trend with its strong looks which are both rugged and trendy. The SUV will boast features like turn indicators on rear view mirrors, daytime running lamps and new alloy work.

The monster will be powered with a CRDe common rail turbo diesel engine producing a 140 Bhp and 320 Nm with its 2.2 litre displacement derived from the Scorpio SUV’s engine. It will be integrated to a five or six speed manual transmission system with a four wheel drive as standard. To be launched on 28th September the XUV500 will fetch good market in India and South Africa, and has been discussed for almost an year now.

    I am waiting to see here in the German market now as we have so many top model in this range of SUV so lets see how it fairs and what the test review says , until now I in my inquiry found no trace with the main auto dealers in Aachen or Köln who can show this Mahindra XUV 500. Here so many SUV from all the car manufacturer of the world are for sale tough market.

      I’m not sure the XUV500 will head to Germany rightaway. There’s still time for it if at all. It’s almost certain it won’t go to the US. In regards to Europe, it will make an entry but where and where has not yet been revealed.
