Default Re: The 2nd-gen Mahindra XUV500, coming in Q3-2021

Mahindra XUV500 to return as new Creta rival in early 2024, confirms ACI

Quote:
New XUV500 launch expected in early 2024
Will sit between the XUV300 and XUV700
Expected to cost Rs 10-17 lakh, ex showroom
Quote:
Without Ford’s platform to base it on, Mahindra is likely to use an extended version of the XUV300’s underpinnings. Trouble is, that would essentially mean re-engineering the SsangYong Tivoli platform, which is too heavy and expensive. So, in order to make the S301 competitive, Mahindra would have to reduce weight and cost right at the outset, which would be a challenge. However, the company will use the engineering learnings from the XUV700 for the S301
At about 4.2-4.3 metres long, the new XUV500 will drop right into the heart of the mid-size SUV segment dominated by the Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos.

This is wonderful news. A popular name in a popular segment. Since its Mahindra, diesel engine options will definitely be available. XUV300 diesel engine is already very powerful, so assuming this will be more powerful, they have a probable winner here.

Will it really take 3 more years to extend the XUV300 platform. By that time Suzuki and Toyota will launch their creta rivals. Even MG is eying on that segment. It will be too late and tough for Mahindra to capture the segment in 2024

Early 2024 is miles away. Maruti could may as well enter that segment by then.

Mahindra have a lot riding on the upcoming XUV700. It's up to it to not only be a competent flagship (considering the Alturas has, or is about to be discontinued), but also to justify the time spent by M&M in designing and testing the car. This launch will show if M&M can step into the ring with the big boys, or if there's still some time before they can. Will have a huge impact on how people perceive future M&M model announcements.
