2nd gen XUV500 spotted testing towards the south of TN, near Tirunelveli.

The first car seems to have production-spec headlamps and tail lamps. The dual barrel headlamps are clear in the last pic.

In earlier spy pics, the XUV seemed to be running on tyres a tad too small for its size, like the MG Hector. But in the second and third picture, the tyres and the alloys look very proportional to the body. Also, the stance seems similar to the current car.

The dimensions seem to be very similar to the current car. A slight increase in length is the only thing that seems to be the case.

The 2nd Gen XUV5OO has been spotted with 2 different sets of alloys.
One is this-

The other one is this-

I guess one set may be kept exclusively for the top end variant and the other set may be for the lower variants. There may be difference in dimensions between the two sets of alloys like seen on the current gen. This might be the reason why the tyres and alloys looks more proportional in some test mules compared to the others. Or they might be experimenting with different alloy/tyre dimensions.

Yes, I too feel the same. Here is a pic of it alongside the previous gen. (the cars aren't aligned properly in this picture)

With the joint venture being called off, wonder if all the talk about Ford providing inputs for XUV 500 is actually true. Would companies start collaborating even before the formal joint venture is in place?

You have an interesting question there and it bears asking as well. Anyway my source inside Mahindra R&D had told me that Ford employees were very much present inside Mahindra Research Valley in Chenglepet but their "experiments" with Mahindra's models were being conducted all by themselves with no involvement from Mahindra's employees. But I didn't ask if the XUV 500's design has had inputs from Ford or not...

That seals the deal to exchange my 2014 XUV with this one. Hope the boot space with all rows up is enough to store atleast a couple of hand bags.

And here is a pic of the interior. Looks like it's almost production ready.

Funny how people were in doubt regarding the size of the new XUV (myself included), and then all the recent test mules were spotted next to similarly sized SUVs/crossovers for scale.

With such rigorous testing, it seems that Mahindra looks set to launch a relatively niggle free and quality product with the 2nd gen XUV. I only hope that with the rumoured engine options, they provide a smooth shifting manual gearbox.

I am extremely hyped for this launch, looks likely that we will replace our 2011 XUV with this one.

Does anyone have the dimensions of the new XUV? I am asking trying to estimate the boot space it will offer considering how small it is today.

This photo gives an idea of the bootspace in the new one. It appears to be slightly more than the current model, though still not as big as other SUVs.

Looks interesting, remains a candidate to replace my old XUV 2011 model.

BTW, do you think the outside door handle (driver side) not retracting fully? I faced frequent problem with inside door handles with the old model.

A 5 seater option with extra boot space (optional last row) would be great if it can loose some weight and lower the center of gravity for better handling
