Thanks to the Team-BHP fan (he prefers to remain anonymous) who sent these images in. Heartfelt gratitude for sharing it with other enthusiasts via this page

Last month, we had shared spy images of the XUV500 facelift, which revealed the various changes made to the exterior styling, both in the front and rear. A set of spy images now reveal the updated interiors of the XUV500. 

The latest spy images suggest that the facelift version will get tan coloured leather seat covers with diamond stitching and an all-black dashboard with silver trim on the centre console. The upper portion of the dashboard is covered in leather trim instead of bare plastic. The centre console gets a piano black fascia in place of a matte black finish. Rest of the switchgear is identical to the current XUV500 except for the gloss finish on the rotary dials. Further, there's silver trim on the gear knob, center armrest, hand brake lever and steering wheel. The twin-pod instrument cluster appears to have been carried over unchanged. Also note that much like the outgoing model, this particular variant of the XUV500 has got aluminium pedals.

It has been reported that Mahindra might offer an updated touchscreen infotainment system on the XUV500 facelift. However, as per the information received, the system does not support Apple CarPlay. This suggests that the current head unit might be carried over. It has features like Android Auto, Connected Apps and EcoSense. A set of tweeters have been added on the A-pillars.

Besides the cosmetic changes, the XUV500 facelift will reportedly get an updated 2.2-litre, 4-cylinder diesel engine which makes 168 BHP and 350 Nm. Although, Mahindra is yet to confirm this. It has also been rumoured that the updated XUV500 might be launched around April 18, 2018.
