So they seem to have gotten "inspired" from the Fortuner - the side profile looks quite similar. Is the 3rd row glass even smaller now?

God, that tail light cluster!
No change in panels means there is a gaping hole with the smaller light. What have they filled it up with? Is that a plastic trim? That reminds me, there was a lot of noise initially when it was launched (or refreshed) about the front fenders being non-mental.

Perhaps the best looking alloys suiting the entire body structure! A conglomeration made in heaven types diamond cut and the huge wheels make it just look hot! But isn’t this the beefed up version of the new Scross alloys?! Looks very much similar, isn’t it?

Even though the power hike looks reasonable, it would’ve been good if they’d extracted the power uptil 170hp as spread in the rumours. Or am I missing something here by any chance? Pls correct me if I’m mistaken.

Headlamps only revision is the eyebrow DRL replaced with more or less straight looking DRL getting submerged into the assembly. High beam conventional halogen reflector setup whilst the projector set seem to have a better set of lamps compared to the earlier, I presume!

Nonetheless, Mahindra are pretty quick to respond to changes in the market and try to up their models with mid life updates to keep them running in the game.

Tail lamps look more of MUVish style. Hate it or love it design. Perhaps with time, it will seep in! Side profile looks untouched but I still want to compliment the wonderful design of the alloys again!

Not commenting on the grill design with chrome bits and a busy looking front bumper near the fog lamp assembly is certainly not a good thought.

155PS looks good and inline with VARICOR 400. If i am correct both XUV and Hexa have same engine(AVL based) blocks and both initially came with tune of 120/140PS. Tata upped the game by tuning to 156 and Mahindra now followed the suit.

do we know if the 2nd row of seats can be moved forward and aft? That was one of key requirement for several people in early years when XUV was launched and was pitted against Innova. It would be good if XUV comes up with captain seat options.
Looks like a good mid-life refresh

There will be an improvement in the dashboard plastics, I am told. No wavy patterns on it.

AWD AT option and the 18-inch diamond-cut dual tone alloys.

Nope and nope.

2nd row of seats remain fixed. No captain seat options either.

If they can also get rid of the spider web shaped air vents and the recessions (level difference) on the dashboard, it will be even better. No need gimmicks, just follow what is the current trend in the industry and strive for good quality fit and finish.

So you mean we will get AWD only in W11 now? No option for AWD in lower variants?

- To be available in 5 variants - W5, W7, W9, W11 and W11 (Optional).
- Automatic option will be offered on W7, W9, W11 and W11 (Opt) variants.


Some details of each variant -

Great info ! We are interested in the W7 AT model but i hope this is not the final features list. We really want the hill assist/descent feature as it will be frequently used in the mountains. The list is also missing front fog lamps. For a 19L vehicle such things will be sorely missed.
I guess we`ll have to wait for 10 more days for the complete picture.

Real sad part is that they did not add LED's, forget HID's, in the headlights when even they know that lower beam in XUV has been a pain area from day 1. Why Mahindra why. Charge extra from customer if you want and add LED's for god sake atleast in lower beams.

All the features are already present in current XUV so really cant make-out whats extra. I hope sunroof is not the part of Optional. Atleast have that in W9 as well like in current XUV.
The morimoto might be a good option if there is no LED upgrade on the headlight section. They ( M & M ) have not upgraded scorpio headlights either !

This is a feature from Mahindra for their most premium and sought-after SUV and that too in the top most model

Common Mahindra, Tata have been offering this in Safari since Inception (Read 90's), Time to grow up.

Most CR diesels are produced today with large stress margins for the scantlings, for further development. And since both engines have nearly identical bore/stroke dimensions - 85 mm x 96 mm, and tech. dissemination through industry osmosis is endemic, - it is just a matter of time before individual mfrs. get on with the job of develeping a unit further.

Contrary to the previous notion, the car looks better in these recent pictures, specially the side profile is much enhanced from these new 18” alloys. Still waiting to check out the car in person when it reaches the dealership.

The launch of the facelift is just a week away. As per news, there will be 5 variants in diesel. Of these, 4 trims are also going to be offered with automatic transmission. The petrol variant will also be continued.
