Rumour: 2nd-gen Mahindra XUV500 to debut by end-2020

According to a media report, Mahindra is likely to debut the second generation XUV500 by the end of 2020. 

Reports suggest that the next generation XUV500 is expected to be based on a monocoque, just like the current one. It is likely to be developed in collaboration with Mahindra's North American Technical Centre. In terms of its dimensions, the new model is likely to be larger than the current XUV500 and it could be styled by Pininfarina.

The second generation XUV500 is expected to get a new BS-VI compliant 2.0-litre diesel engine. It is rumoured to produce around 178 BHP. In comparison, the current 2.2-litre, 4-cylinder diesel makes 153 BHP and 360 Nm of torque.

As part of its alliance with Ford, Mahindra is likely to share the next-gen XUV500 platform with Ford.
