New Age XUV 5oo

Xuv front


Bold new styling. Cutting-edge technology. Premium new interiors. Make way for an all-new predator. Make way for the New Age XUV500. One look at the intimidating cheetah-inspired exterior, and you’ll find it hard to look away. Step in and you’re greeted by luxury so grand, you won’t want to step out again. Beneath the hood, improved dynamic torque delivers driving pleasure on any terrain. And the enhanced suspension gives you superior ride and handling. Brimming with exciting new age technology, the New Age XUV500 has been designed for a whole new experience.

Like in most facelifts, the 2015 Mahindra XUV500 retains its original silhouette which most Mahindra loyalists will be glad about. The major exterior changes are done to enhance its face. Replacing the old body coloured grille is a new black one with chrome inserts, similar to the New Scorpio. And though the headlight shape is unchanged, it gets a re-profiled cluster with a distinct S-shaped LED guide light which imitates day time running lights. But the big change here is the inclusion of cornering light which ensures there’s no surprise around a corner.

Also new is a bolder bonnet with rounded corners and fewer creases, and a muscular new front bumper. Replacing the old round shaped fog lamps are these new L-shaped ones, which have been positioned higher than before. There’s plenty of chrome too, like around the fog lamps and on the new skid plate at the bottom of the front bumper.

Look at the 2015 Mahindra XUV500 facelift from the side and you’ll notice a chrome strip highlighting the SUV’s entire shoulder line. Also new are fresh alloy wheels to complete the sporty theme. The only change at the back is a bolder chrome garnish on the registration plate, which completes the exterior design update.

Mahindra has also introduced two new body colours for the 2015 XUV500, Sunset Orange (which our test car sports) and Pearl White, apart from the usual five other shade offered before. The design has evolved with time and the changing demands of the customers, and overall it’s not over-the-top and nor does it try too hard to look fresh.
