Wonder what makes the car in the second picture to sit so low! Are they doing some loading (overloading) test? Does it hit at over-softly sprung suspension?

Got tired of waiting for the new gen XUV 500 and ultimately decided to jump a segment to the Superb. Imo Mahindra really blew the big lead that they had in this segment and now will face a fiercer competition by the Safari and the compact Korean twins.

Regardless, can anyone confirm that the new gen XUV500 looks a bit less bulky/smaller than the current gen? Atleast, it seems so from the images.

Actually it'll be slightly bigger than the current Gen

Agree. Mahindra providing absolutely no information, no teasers is getting very frustrating. They haven't given us anything, other than test mules. Assuming that the launch is in May, they should've started throwing hints here and there by now.

Someone involved with Mahindra vehicles mentioned during a casual chat last week that dealer training starts at least 4 months prior to launch.

As per him, dealers haven't received any communication from Mahindra about training schedule, with that calculation, launch is atleast 5 months away.

Here's the thing. I spotted what seemed to be a XUV 500 test mule this morning when I was on my motorcycle. It had 3 rows, the 3rd row had 2 prominent adjustable headrests and the entertainment panel was fully masked along with the entire exterior. But the tell-tale Mahindra front grille was a giveaway.

In any case - the test mule ran southbound just outside of Chennai International Airport side by side with an Etios taxi which had come out of the airport. The XUV 500 wasn't much taller than the Etios at all. It was wider, yes. But it had to have been taller by only 75% of a foot at the most.

I don't think the new XUV 500 will be taller than the old XUV 500.

This is assuming that what I saw was a XUV 500 and not an unheard of 3 row XUV 300 or an all-new mini MPV from Mahindra.

He asked if it was smaller/less bulky for which I replied but ya, in terms of height it's probably same as old Gen or slightly less. I'm quoting it from zigwheels video, I have only seen a glimpse of it near kolathur once so I can't say for sure.

Regarding the talk about the size, especially the height, I personally prefer relatively low slung stance. If you look at the soft roaders (or monocoque SUVs) like CRV, Kodiaq, Outlander, Tucson, they all are below 1700 mm in height. Current generation XUV500 is almost 1800 mm. Test mules of the next gen car look somewhat shorter (in height), wider and have better planted look. This should translate in better driving dynamics.

Based on one of the spy shots, I tried to sketch out the basic shape to understand the body lines and see how butch it might be. Looks interesting, to be honest and of course, I feel how the lights turn out in the end, can make or break our perceptions about it... because the body design seems good/great.

All I can say is Mahindra has a winner in their hands! Looks well worth the wait and 2011-12 waiting periods are definitely going to repeat itself like when the it was originally launched.

The interior looks from two segments above, especially the digital instrument cluster .

Entire segment right from the Hector to the Safari is going to face the heat!

Tell me about it. This is the level of effort I expected from TATA with Harrier and Safari. Mahindra is going to simply storm the entire segment!

Pretty sure the vehicles you saw was something else. The new generation appears pretty similar in height to the current generation.
Have a look.

Car is looking really sleek in these latest spy shots. Rear looks very Skodaish (I like it). It is a pity that we need to wait for few more months because of the delay due to the shortage of semiconductor chips.
