A closer look at it suggests that it might have the familiar headlight + DRL + fog lamp setup similar to the XUV300.

Well, If this news article is anything to go by, We can assume Mahindra is gearing up big times for the XUV500, from door handles inspired from RR Velar to Autonomous Level 1 safety features like the Gloster. What next? A killer price?

Mahindra Eyeing Level 1 Autonomous Tech For The Second-Gen XUV500

Says Zigwheels here

Quote:
Mahindra previewed this technology on the autonomous-supported Marazzo showcased at Auto Expo 2020. Now, it seems like the new XUV500 will be the first Mahindra to bring this tech to the market.

The Indian carmaker has partnered up with a South Korean company, Mando Corporation, which will supply a DCU (domain control unit), radar, and camera for ADAS.
If this happens, I think the XUV might disrupt the segment yet again, just like 2011!

Looks very mature and nice on styling-front looks like M&M, Tata are on a roll with design language!

With all new tech onboard the new XUV500 like the pop-out door handles, we just have to wait and watch how functional and bug-free they turn out to be!

Like GTO keeps telling, the first iteration of the new gen cars from Tata / Mahindra are usually not bug free and all issues are ironed out in the subsequent launches. I hope M&M gets it right the first time.

Good luck M&M!

My only request to MM for new XUV500 would be stop using silly Cheetah tagline and come up with something else. Never understood that reference. Its hardly a lean or or quick or agile vehicle.

So M&M take a leaf out of Kia's design handbook and put monitors behind the steering wheel. I'm not sure how much i like this design fad. Maybe its a matter of time in getting used to it.

Better to put it as Mercedes inspired. Anyways, to keep the design relevant for years to come by, this design seems the way to go. Overall, the car is looking very good. Hope to see the kind of storm XUV created back in 2011.

Big enough to make you feel like driving a truck or something.

Just like the current XUV 500, bonnet seem to flare upwards on either sides (instead of sloping down). This would somewhat affect the visibility and IIRC, it was reported an a small issue (in tight turning situations) in the TBHP review.

You aren't alone buddy. It's at least 1 size too big & that ugly flat bottom makes it look ungainly. Looks like a flat tyre to me
A subtle flat bottom would suit better.

New Mahindra XUV500 to get Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) tech

Quote:
The new Mahindra XUV 500 is slated to get Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) tech when it goes on sale next year, replacing the first-generation Mahindra XUV500 that’s nearly a decade old. Test mules of the next-generation model have been spotted on multiple occasions, but a new set of spy pictures confirms the 2021 Mahindra XUV500 will get the specialised tech, and also sheds light on some of its features.

-Twin screens take centre stage on the dash
-Will use new-gen 2.0 turbo-petrol and 2.2 Diesel engines

Presence of the ADAS features
Clearly seen in new spy pictures of the 2021 Mahindra XUV500 is a provision for the camera and radar-based ADAS, incorporated into the top of the windshield. Also visible is another sensor housing mounted low in the front bumper.
Only thing bugging me is whether they have made the car smaller than before!

What is a bit more worrisome for someone like me is their attempt to bring the new XUV5OO to look more like a Marazzo, than their previous BS4 iteration.
