According to a media report, Mahindra is gearing up to launch its Ssangyong Rexton-based SUV (codenamed Y400) on October 9, 2018.

The Y400 was unveiled at the 2018 Auto Expo. It is based on the second generation Rexton and features minor exterior modifications. Up front, it has a grille with vertical chrome slats flanked by twin-pod projector headlamps and a revised front bumper. At the rear, the SUV comes with wraparound tail lamps and a dual-tone bumper. It has dual-tone interiors with brown leather upholstery, touchscreen infotainment system, a 3-spoke multi-function steering wheel and a twin-dial instrument cluster.

The Y400 is expected to be offered with a 2.2-litre, 4-cylinder diesel engine that produces 184 BHP and 420 Nm of torque. It is likely to be paired with a Mercedes-Benz sourced 7-speed automatic gearbox and could be available with all-wheel drive.
