The SA-spec Mahindra XUV500 is powered by the 2.2L diesel engine putting out 140 PS at 3,750 rpm and 330Nm from 1,600 – 2,800 rpm.

The new XUV500 comes with an updated front-end that loses the aggressive faux intake whiskers for a pair of chrome L-shaped accents housing the re-positioned fog lamps. The toothed grille has chrome inserts, and is flanked by headlamps with new LED pilot lamps. The rest of the exterior is largely identical to the outgoing model.

The South African-spec Mahindra XUV500 comes with an all-black interior with black leather upholstery and silver accents. As for equipment, it now offers an updated infotainment system via a 7-inch touchscreen display, reverse parking camera, cruise control, power foldable ORVMs, and automatic climate control. Safety features include six airbags, ABS, ESP, Hill Descent and hold, and all wheel disc brakes.
