Report from GaadiWaadi, Mahindra is working on the new multi-purpose vehicle, which will be named as the Mahindra TUV 500. Mahindra’s new car has been spied at the Chennai outskirts with the fully covered exterior, but the front profile is partially exposed. The new MPV is expected to be replaced the existing Xylo vehicle with the additional cosmetic touches and tech based features.
In the Mahindra’s passenger vehicle range, most of the cars introduced in the segment of utility vehicles, in which Xylo is first MPV. From the captured images, there is noticed that the vehicle will be similar to the Xylo with the seven-seater body structure, sloped bonnet and Mahindra’s kind of grille.
The Scorpio based ladder-on-platform is expected to be used to design the next-gen MPV and the same platform used in Mahindra TUV 300 and NuvoSport models. The complete details regarding the product yet to be revealed, but we expected that the TUV 500 will receive the 2.0-litre engine from the XUV 500. Another side, there is a chance to receive the 1.5-litre engine as well as the new petrol engines, which are currently working by the largest utility vehicle maker.
Apart from this, Mahindra is also working on the mini Bolero, which will enter the compact SUV as soon as possible. The sub-4metre Bolero is the fourth model from Mahindra in the high popularity compact SUV segment. It will receive the 1.5-litre mHawk engine used in Mahindra TUV 300, first sub-4metre model available in automatic versions.
The mini Bolero has been watched several times in the roads but, the TUV 500 MPV is spied for the first time. The upcoming MPV will get the new design to target the best MPV model, Toyota Innova.
