LED upgrade is a very easy DIY job post purchase. I have done it on my car and worthy upgrade to be made if Mahindra doesnt upgrade.

Common Mahindra, Tata have been offering this in Safari since Inception (Read 90's), Time to grow up.
Manf make weird choices at times while differentiating variants. I dont disagree with you but this is a minor thing. Lets give credit to Mahindra cause even they launched XUV in 2012 it was the only car after germans to come with 6 air bags, ESP etc. Prev gen fortuner or the Safari never got that as an option in their entire life cycle.

Hyundai i20 had 6 airbags when it was launched in 2008 so XUV was not the only car with side & curtain airbags.

I stand corrected. Let me rephrase, XUV at its launch was one of the few cars not skimping out on safety compared to many cars like fortuner/innova costing more and way more. Hope audience gets my drift. 2012 was the time frame when 2 front air bags and ABS was considered good enough.

XUV500 refresh has many important and valuable upgrades which may not only put other competitors at backfoot but also the present model little unwanted:

1. More than 10% increase in power, improving power by weight ratio to a new high, and so for torque.

2. More intuitive interior

And it has already been a all purpose SUV, tried and tested, with excellent support from our own home grown manufacturer.

Actually the Aria was the first with 6 Airbags, ESP and TC and 4x4. In 2010. This just to set the record right.

Can you show a pic or video of the spread of light after adding LED's? Which LED bulb did you upgrade to and from where you bought it?

That's one bad looking rear. What is with Mahindra and horrendous designs. How do they even get signed off beats me. Tata has gone light years ahead in terms of design. But I guess people will like it.. they liked the first one...

Since its only a fecelift its ok to have such looks ! They need to come out of that wavy design which makes the SUV looks meek.
They dont have new ones in the pipeline too compared to Tata.

Saw this image posted on Twitter by Anand Mahindra himself. This is the current one but somehow looks better with this bumper design. They should have carried on with this type of design in the upcoming facelift.

I really think they should give the hyperbole a rest now, it's getting a bit long in the tooth (pun not intended). Cheetah indeed! Looks more like a hamster than anything else, methinks (no offence to owners, past or present or future)!

Got a chance to visit one of the Mahindra Dealers stock yard and check out the new XUV500 which is going to be launched on 18th of this month across showrooms. The variants as explained by dealer are W5, W7, W9, W11 and W11 Optional. W11 Optional will only have diamond cut alloys and nothing else. That was what has been told them at the training of the new product. I liked the new leather seats which are in tan and has got diamond stitch pattern. Dashboard has got soft touch with dual stitch pattern leather and was told that the infotainment system has got lot of changes in it. Did not get a chance to check it out though. Tweeters have been moved to A Pillar from the earlier position which was on the corners of the dashboard. The rear boot lid has got a new spoiler which is a bit bigger and looks good. Roof-rails are in silver finish are very sturdy over the current XUV. Should check out if they can be fitted onto the current models.
