Super Catch by Autocar
Finally we get to see new XUV, though pics are not that clear,
what I can see here,
New Grill with Chrome Insert and Slate Mustache Chrome type on Grill.
Grill will be blackened like other siblings (Xylo, Quanto, Scorpio).
Skid Plate is looking nice.
Fog lamps taken upwards but Chrome housing not looking good
Headlamps are good upmarket. Wish the LED strips has to work as DRL (come on Mahindra its 15 Lakh car). However the "S" shape LED is welcome.
Now things which I am expecting from this facelift.
More powerful engine 160 BHP to compete with upcoming TATA Varicor 400 Storme Safari.
Bonnet Scoop may give more Muscular looks, like T-Fort
Side Fender Bezel like Scorpio or Endeavour
Rear Spoiler, Rear Bumper with Twin Exhaust housing,
Mainly Space in 3rd Row leg room or sliding of 2nd Row seats
Shiny Glossy Middle Dashboard to replace with dark which reflects in day time.
Instrument Cluster from Twin Dial to some rectangle.
As per Motoroctane new XUV is due for launch in May and TVC are about to shoot.
This year major launch of UV's by Mahindra
I am desperately waiting for New Bolero & Micro SUV (CUV)
