The all-new second-generation Mahindra XUV500 is currently under development and it is no secret. But, Mahindra has tried its best to keep all the details of the upcoming vehicle under wraps. However, test mules have been captured on Indian roads already on multiple occasions. Now, a video has surfaced online which shows the interior of the upcoming SUV. The video posted by SP Auto Tech on Youtube shows a majority of the front cabin of the new Mahindra XUV500. The video reveals that the new generation model will get a premium-looking cabin with a dual-tone scheme. Additionally, like a Mercedes-Benz, the XUV500 will let a long seamless black panel on top of the dashboard. The seamless black panel will house the all-digital driver’s instrument cluster on one side (in front of the driver). Whereas the section of the panel in the centre would be the touchscreen infotainment system.
The video also revealed how the rest of the dashboard will look like. In addition, we also got a glimpse of the centre console. The test mule seen in the video is the 6-speed manual version. From what we can see, Mahindra has done away with the manual handbrake and included an electric-parking brake with a switch positioned on the right of the gear lever. Further back on the console is a rotary dial is seen, which seems to be for the drive mode selector.
We recently reported that the launch of the new XUV500 has been delayed to April 2021. We still await on Mahindra to confirm the official launch date for the model. Additionally, the engine line up in the XUV500 is likely to be similar to the 2.0-litre mStallion turbo petrol and 2.2-litre mHawk turbo diesel engines offered on the recently launched Mahindra Thar. Mahindra may tune these engines for more power and performance in the XUV500.
