The XUV Aero could be based on the XUV500’s monocoque platform.

The XUV Aero showcased at the Delhi Auto Expo could establish an entry-level sports crossover segment, if it goes into production. Likely to serve as the company’s flagship product, the XUV Aero was designed by Mahindra with input from Pininfarina, which is now under the ownership of the Indian car manufacturer.

While the front-end looks like a customized Mahindra XUV500, the XUV Aero’s distinctive design features are the sloping roofline, LED taillamps and diffuser, which contribute to a dynamic design unseen in any of Mahindra’s current products.
