Mahindra and Mahindra XUV500 Facelift

Mahindra Scorpio’s facelift was already launched in November 2017 and in 2018 we will see the facelift version of the company’s more premium utility vehicle – the XUV500. The test mule has already been spotted testing and the profile looks largely similar to the outgoing model. The concept was showcased during Auto Expo 2016. This monocoque SUV has been in the market since 2011 and in 2015 it got a major makeover. The changes included a new face, extra features and a new variant. Under the hood however was the same 2.2 litre mHawk diesel engine that churns out 140 bhp at 3750 rpm and 330 Nm of torque at 1600-2800 rpm. Mahindra did work on some tweaks though, to improve the driveability. The suspension was also worked upon and electronic stability program was updated. The new Mahindra XUV500 arriving in mid 2018 will again get cosmetic changes on its grille and both front and rear bumper. The alloy wheels will also have a new design. Reportedly, Mahindra has been working on a more powerful version of the 2.2 litre engine that powers the current model. This upgraded unit is expected in the 2018 model. It is likely to generate about 167.7 bhp. However, the Indian carmaker may launch a new petrol version – XUV500 G9 – before the diesel. This will be powered by 2.2 litre engine coupled with 6-speed automatic transmission. The first makeover in 2015 gave a more mature face to the XUV500. Its cabin was already spacious with comfortable room on first and second row seating rows. The competent diesel engine also delivered good driveability for city commuting and highway rides.  From the model in 2018, the expectations are higher. The more powerful engine and updated design will help XUV500 to take on the competitors - like Tata Hexa, Jeep Compass and Renault Captur - that have reached the market after its last update.  The price of new XUV500 could be in bracket of Rs 15 lakh and 23 lakh. It should be here by August 2018.

Fortuner Vs Endeavour full blown SUV Competing for Buyers Wallet. Real SUV for SUV lovers from Toyota and Ford. Endeavour and Fortuner comes in 4*2 and 4*4 drive train. Fortunately both have the muscle, looks and power under their hoods to take any terrain with ease. Whilst, on paper feature to feature and engine comparison seems to be tilting the balance in favour of the Endeavour, however, Toyota has enough fan following who will willingly ignore any marquee for a Toyota at any price. Lucky Toyota.
