While talking to sales manager in showroom, he accidentally revealed that new version of XUV is coming which will have following features
- Android Auto
- All black interiors
- Improved suspension
- Lane assist
- EcoSense / Intelly Hybrid / SHVS (Don't remember exactly)
I asked when it is going to arrive on which he said it will take approximately a week and currently we are going through training on that product.
Listening to this, I dropped idea of purchase, I though I will wait for few more weeks to see new variant.
Upon research I realized that the first news was surfaced in Nov 2016 that XUV and Scorpio are going to get Android Auto, there is no update since than. Than some sites says that on 15th of April 2017 XUV will launch its new version. However no words from Mahindra on this.
It's been a week now and yesterday I met salesman to know about new version and he has changed his version and said we don't have date of launch of new version. Generally it takes 3 months after company intimates us and presently there is no official letter from Mahindra too.
I clearly told him that I do not want to look fool taking delivery of older variant whereas display vehicle is of new variant. She agreed that she will discuss with manager and will let me know about dates but no words from her yet.
As an automobile enthusiast, sometimes I feel that we (forum members) know lot better and keep ourselves updated. So I thought I would put up this question in front of beloved GH members.
Would like to hear from other members as well.
