Default re: The 2nd-gen Mahindra XUV500, coming in Q2-2021

It's official - The all-new, next-gen XUV500 will be launched in the last quarter of FY2020-21, according to an official statement made by Dr Pawan Goenka, MD, M&M.

Quote:
Speaking to analysts last month, Dr. Goenka said that the launch of the next-gen Mahindra XUV500 will happen in the fourth quarter of the next financial year, that means (the) first quarter of 2021 calendar year (January-March 2021).

Launched in 2011, the Mahindra XUV500 has remained in the market for over 9 years now. Like the first-gen model, the second-gen model will be a monocoque SUV. However, the latter will reportedly be based on an all-new platform. It will be designed on the lines of the Mahindra Funster concept from Auto Expo 2020 and may have hints of the fourth-gen SsangYong Korando.

The 2021 Mahindra XUV500 will be offered with all-new 2.0-litre petrol and diesel engines. The petrol unit will presumably be the mStallion T-GDi unit from Auto Expo 2020, with a maximum power of 190 HP and a maximum torque of 380 Nm. The diesel engine is said to offer a maximum power of 185 HP.

Like in the current model, 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic should be the transmission choices. An all-wheel drive system should be offered optionally in the diesel engine variant. Mahindra will offer connected vehicle services co-developed with Ford in this C-SUV.

Knowing Mahindra, they will tick all the boxes of customer requirements. However, sober styling, I am not so sure.

Well, we will wait and watch.

if this is close to the final product, then IMHO it will look dated at launch.

More clearer pictures of the interiors emerged.
It looks like the height is going to reduce quite a bit, which is good for handling and avoids body-roll etc., but takes away those typical SUV looks.

First quarter of 2021 will be such a long wait, wish Mahindra launched it sooner.

Looks very MPVish in the video, hope it retains its SUV looks.
Rear bumper looks so low in height.

Next-gen Mahindra XUV500 & Ford C-SUV new details revealed
  • Next gen XUV500 to be launched by the early 2021.
  • Next gen XUV500's platform to be used by Ford's upcoming CSUV, it is internally codenamed Ford W605.

  • Ford's W605 to sport smaller wheelbase and length compared to XUV500.
  • Ford W605 is a completely different design with minor chassis modifications for better driving dynamics.
  • Though both use the same platform, Mahindra to focus on VFM pricing and family offering, while Ford's focus is on higher quality and dynamics for enthusiasts .

I think this is the first time the relative positioning of equivalent Ford/Mahindra JV vehicles is being revealed. Mahindra taking the space, value and practicality positioning versus Ford taking the driving dynamics and quality interiors etc. It is a bit of a departure from the traditional macho/rough&tough/go anywhere image Mahindra is famous for. However, it is the right direction to move, since cars and SUVs are today less of a statement of personality & capability, and more of smart buying decisions - practicality and ease of every day use.

A bit of a change from the current position of Ecosport versus XUV300 - Ecosport is the higher value play, while XUV is positioned as more powerful and driver-oriented. However, the positioning of Alturas versus Endeavor is more or less in -line. The Alturas is slightly cheaper, feature rich and luxurious, the Endeavor has better driving dynamics and off-road capability.

Would be interesting to see how they would position relative to each other relative to off-road capability. This is Mahindras' traditional strength and position in India, but globally, Ford is a leader here as well.

Is the 1.5 Dragon Petrol Dead?? Was thinking of closing a deal on a used Ecosport Petrol MT.

I believe the Ecosport could run alongside the new C-SUV.

The C SUV will be in XUV 500 range for price and dimensions .. EcoSport will continue to be there, with the same engine options ..

Mahindra & Mahindra has deferred the launches of the next-gen XUV500 and the next-gen Scorpio to FY2021-22, as per a presentation slide at a recent Q4 2019-2020 financial results announcement meeting.

The all-new XUV500 (codenamed W601) and the all-new Scorpio (codenamed Z101) are expected to be launched by Q2 (July-Sept) 2021, just ahead of the festive season next year.

Quote:
Previously, both the new-generation Mahindra XUV500 and Scorpio were expected to be launched by the second half of this year.
However, given the COVID-19 pandemic and the resultant lockdown, the company had to re-plan its product launch timeline, and the new Mahindra Thar, which was supposed to launch in early 2020, will now arrive in October.
Similarly, the launch of both, the new XUV500 and the new Scorpio have been pushed to 2021.
Next year, Mahindra will also launch the all-electric Mahindra eXUV300, which was showcased at the 2020 Auto Expo, expanding its EV portfolio.
