Inside, there is a dual-tone dashboard with twin pods for the instrument cluster and a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system. Features such as LED scuff plates, Icy Blue lounge lighting, electric sunroof and ORVMs, automatic climate control, push button stop/start and leather seats add comfort and give a premium feel to the cabin. There is plenty of storage space on offer as well, including the 702 liters of boot space which can be increased to a cavernous 1512 liters with the second and third row seats folded.

The facelifted XUV500 is powered by a 2.2-liter mHawk turbocharged engine delivering 140 bhp and 330 Nm of torque through a 6-speed manual gearbox. Stopping power comes from disc brakes supplemented by ABS with EBD at all four wheels.

The new XUV500 is not short on safety and offers six airbags, hill hold and hill descent control, side impact beams and crash protection crumple zones.
