Mahindra XUV 500 is all set to give its current-flagship SUV a major update this year. The brand has already been seen testing the vehicle in India and as per the reports; the vehicle is likely to be launched in April 2018.
The test-mules of the 2018 XUV500 facelift have been spied multiple times already. The updated XUV500 will feature a heavily revised front fascia which eventually means some expected changes to front bumper, headlamps and grille. The front grille will get a chequered skeleton. The XUV500 facelift will also get new LED daytime running lamps, a trend now seen on most new cars, and are much more prominent than the last model. Moving on to the sides, the alloy wheel design will be new and there will be minor tweaks to the placement of the cladding on the doors.
At the back of the SUV, the tailgate is likely to sport an all-new design. The rear bumper will also look different than the current model and the tail lamps will see a slight re-profile as well along with LED elements. The new car will also feature new alloy wheels, but the side profile will be the same as the last one. The body cladding gets a new position which amplifies the look of the new XUV. At the rear, there is an up gradation in the bumper. The exterior changes of the XUV 500 facelift are not extreme, but they are enough to be noticed by people.
