2021 Mahindra XUV500 Will Offer A Fancy Digital Instrument Cluster

After playing the waiting game for a long time, Mahindra had earlier announced its intentions to release the next-generation XUV500. Ever since it was first launched, the XUV500 became a go-to SUV for many buyers in the country. It offered many perks of owning an actual 4×4 along with many of the benefits of a modern family car. The XUV500’s indomitable road presence meant that it commanded a certain amount of respect on our tattered Indian roads. For many car buyers, this lone point is usually sufficient for them to sign on the dotted line. However, Mahindra also ensured that the XUV500 packed loads of features and a fairly comfortable cabin. It is hard for many to overlook these despite the car’s glaring flaws.

Truth be told, while the previous-gen XUV500 was quite good for its time period, that time period is now history. With competition in the segment emerging from all sides, Mahindra knew the days of the outgoing XUV500 were numbered. This is why the company began working hard on the next-generation model just sometime back. While many of the details about the 2021 XUV500 are still under wraps, we do know that it will come with many more standard features than its predecessor. For instance, the next XUV500 will definitely offer safety gear like Electronic Stability Control, up to six airbags, ABS with EBD, and Brake Assist. Moreover, Mahindra might even equip it with some driver assistance technology such as Front Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking.

With no confirmation from Mahindra on any of these advanced safety features, much remains a topic of speculation for now. However, the same cannot be said about some of the other equipment details. If you like a modern digital instrument cluster, then rejoice, because the 2021 Mahindra XUV500 will get that. Just like what you see in a Mercedes-Benz with its dual-screen layout, the next-gen XUV500 will also offer something similar. One amongst these displays will be a fancy enough fully digital driver’s display with the likelihood of featuring adjustable modes along with stylized graphics. How much of the latter actually does materialize for real, we might have to wait a little longer to find that out. Needless to say, at this point, the interior of the old XUV500 looks dated enough for it to be almost discounted.

However, Mahindra still manages to sell loads of them (relatively speaking) to buyers who don’t mind an old plasticky interior. This shows that the XUV500 nameplate has plenty of pull in the Indian market, something only a few others can brag about. One of the biggest changes inside the 2021 XUV500 should surely be noticeable the moment you step in – build quality. With the outgoing model, the general fit-and-finish and quality of plastics are poor and definitely not worthy of a premium tag. On the other hand, the leather seats and large window area have always been the car’s forte. These will most likely continue even the new model. What will not continue (hopefully) is the shoddy quality of materials used elsewhere in the interior.

Along with the thorough exterior update, Mahindra will refresh the interior of the next XUV500 with better materials and build. Moreover, the automaker may also throw in some connected car features this time around. Might as well, as many new cars in the market come with it and buyers will expect it at this price range. Speaking of, it is far too soon to be too sure about the 2021 XUV500’s price yet. Having said that, it will compete with the likes of the Jeep Compass, MG Hector, and Tata Harrier. But do note that, unlike some of its rivals, the next-generation XUV500 will continue to offer seven seats. As for its powertrain, the 2021 Mahindra XUV500 should be offered with a turbo-diesel and a turbo-petrol engine.
