The shape of the headlamps are slightly different and the elements are all new. HID lamps and LED daytime running lights get the SUV in line with the current automotive trend. The bumper is new but the rest of the front fascia is hidden beneath a thick camouflage.

No changes to the profile, and the rear too continues as it is save for the taillights which are likely to get re-profiled elements. The interior is also expected to undergo subtle revisions. Overall, it is a typical mid-life refresh.

The 2.0 litre petrol and diesel engines are expected to continue untouched. The petrol motor is good for 149PS while the diesel engine comes in two states of tune – 149PS and 175PS. A six-speed manual or automatic are the transmission options.

Mahindra is reportedly studying the Indian market for the Ssanyong Korando C. The SUV could be the second Ssangyong to hit the Indian market, but it would be challenging for Mahindra to price it at a premium over the XUV500 which offers more space and equipment.

    Pic 2 and 3 -The rear pics reminds me of the XUV500. M&M should try export it to Asian markets than eyeing the developed markets.
