I think this is the Xylo replacement project that Mahindra's overseas research team located in Michigan, United States was working on.

That could be the reason why we did not see any initial test mules and now what we have is a completely ready product with everything in its place. These must be the final set of tests going on now and I expect that Mahindra will launch this soon.

New Mahindra MPV launch in second half of 2017.

All-new MPV from Mahindra (Codename: U321) to take on Innova Crysta; likely to come with carmaker's new 1.99-litre diesel engine.

this new vehicle has the traditional tall MPV stance with a long wheelbase and short front and rear overhangs for maximum interior room. Up front, the now-familiar Mahindra grille is an instant giveaway about its identity. The shape of the headlights resemble the recently-launched Mahindra Imperio pickup, while the bumper looks tall with a prominent air intake and provisions for fog lamps. It has a very cab-forward shape, with a relatively short bonnet, which again should translate to better interior room. Moving on to the sides, the glasshouse gives it a typical MPV look however, going by the recent Mahindra designs, the final design may end up getting a number of aggressive lines and slashes here and there in a bid to make the design more interesting

Mahindra's TUV5OO ? spotted again,

Quote:
It is the first MPV project developed by the automaker’s North American Technical Centre (MNATC) in Troy, Michigan. Expect the MPV to share the same monocoque platform with the company’s flagship SUV XUV500. This will enable the car to get a front wheel drive system. The power source is reported to be Mahindra’s downsized 1.99-litre mHawk diesel engine. However, it might get an all-new diesel engine developed with assistance from Ssangyong

There's only so much prettying up possible on an MPV, and given Mahindra's penchant for overdone designs, I'd rather have them focus on interior quality, sorted ergonomics, quality materials and overall reliability.

MPV's sell on those factors and the segment benchmark Crysta ticks pretty much every box there is for a competent MPV.
