Also you can see new set of alloys.
New leather color looks nice and the leather addition to the door trim will surely make the interiors look more plush. Overall design seems similar as before. I am wondering what impact will 18inch wheels have to the ride quality. It anyways on the firm side and this might have a negative impact unless the suspension has been tuned.

Sad news i know. However somehow i knew it wont be 170 as new Rexton (XUV 700, whichever name MnM decide) will be in 170 bhp range. Anyways, i still believe it will be a hoot to drive. Has a nice growling sound to it. Yet to be driven though.
10% power increase is decent and the figures at this price point are fairly decent. Even the current state of tune makes it a very good performer, so this increase would just make it better.

Heard that suspension has been tweeked and they are more comfortable compared to current xuv.

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!

Mahindra XUV500 facelift coming, to get power hike. EDIT: Now launched @ Rs 12.32 lakhs-image5.jpeg

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.

Must say that I am very pleasantly surprised with the interiors. It looks wonderfully upmarket now without any of the gaudiness and mix of infinite textures. I am not sure if the top of the dashboard is actually leather or just plastic which looks like leather, like in the previous gen Camry.

The stitching effect is a direct copy of the Hexa's cabin, but looks pleasing nonetheless. But I absolutely loved the tan leather seats with diamond pattern stitching.

IMO, this is how the XUV's cabin should have looked in the first place - classy and understated. Good effort by M&M.

I read your post first and then noticed the pictures above. Must say that I really had to look closer to find out the differences.

Slightly better than earlier, but not very different either IMHO. Nothing that I would call classy, still with those mosquito coil vents, messy waterfall console and twin pod meters that are too curious for attention.

The sober colour schemes and material quality helps though.

Leather stitching on the dashboard catches your attention. The next facelift will hopefully have an all-black interior theme.

Quality of dashboard plastics is a welcome improvement. Looks much better than the present-gen dash with wavy plastics all over, which makes it seem as if it came right out of the plastic recycle factory.

The texture of the seats and the faux stitching gives the car a really upmarket feel. They should have matched it with better designed AC vents.

They should have done something about that oddly-placed start/stop button too. It's irritating to bend over almost to where your left foot is just to start the car. All the more aggravating when you are buckled up.

I just sold my 2014 XUV. Test drove a ton of vehicles and... almost decided upon buying an XUV once again! Thereís simply no alternative that checks all the boxes.

The only thing I sorely will miss is the red mood lighting. Donít quite like the blue hues. The red was so much more animalistic.

Sad to see Mahindra is still going with Manual IRVM's

Some more pictures of the interiors:

No improvements with the seat configuration. They still come with the no sliding 2nd row seats and minimal luggage space with all seats up.

Finalised with XUV for my uncle. He was a fan of the first edition of the car but right now is disappointed with the looks on this new one.

Just a few changes: dashboard material ditto like the Hexa, change of fabric for the seats, looks of the car and a bit tweak in power.

Going for it nonetheless as heart rules over the mind!
As for me, am happy i didn't wait a whole year for this face lift! Had expected more changes specifically to the dashboard and not just change in texture or chrome additions.

Anyways, Hope test drives start soon as we need to have the car by july-august.

Wondering how would the leather on the dashboard in some of the new vehicles (fortuner, hexa, now XUV) age with our climate conditions when compared to the conventional plastic materials

Respect your opinion.

The AC vents are not a deal breaker for me and I mentioned the word "classy" relatively. Of course, I am not comparing this interior with the luxury Germans.

I actually like this interior more than the Hexa now. Of course I am not sure about the touch and feel aspect, but still it looks more premium than the Hexa.

I will wait for more detailed pictures.

Yes, that is my concern too. In the Nexon or other cars with ceramic surfaces inside, folks are going ahead with adding an extra protective layer.

But no idea how to protect the leather finished surface. Would like to highlight that it's not exactly leather but just a similar finishing.

These interior images of XUV have further made me realise just how premium the finish in Hexa is and the need to carry over the same appeal for long periods of time!

Any believable word on when the 155 Bhp motor will hit the market?
