Mahindra XUV500 recently became the new hot topic with its spy shot taken at Mumbai earlier this month and now the car has been spied again with a clear view of its interior. These spy shots give us a clear view of many interior features starting from the dashboard to its rear trunk. The spied images and video were taken near the Mahindra research valley which is locked near Chennai.
Let’s now talk about the features in detail, Although, the car is all camouflaged from the exterior to the basic interior some major features are still fairly recognizable. The spy shots clearly tell the car being shot is the top variant of the new Mahindra XUV500 with an automatic transmission gearbox. Seeing the roof makes the doubt clear wheatear that car is a top variant or not, with shots of a panoramic sunroof at the top. We can also see a large instrument cluster behind the steering wheel. For the current version, the car comes in a dual-tone interior color consisting of beige and black. For the seating ratio, the 2nd row comes with a 60:40 split and the 3rd row comes in a 50:50 split.
The engine options, the new Mahindra XUV500 is likely to come in two engine options first being the 2.0litre turbo mStallion GDi four-cylinder petrol engine and a 2.2litre mHawk four-cylinder diesel engine. And hopefully will have all current variant like MT/AT and 2WD/AWD.
