Mahindra XUV Aero – Video Walkaround

Aravind

Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.

Not confirmed for production, yet.

After dropping a surprising teaser days before, Mahindra unveiled the Mahindra XUV Aero concept at the Auto Expo 2016, which previews a future sports crossover, should the company decide to enter the market with it.

The front-end of the Mahindra XUV Aero draws design cues from the Mahindra XUV500 SUV, as seen in the headlamps, hood, and sculpted lines. Being a concept, it features new LED DRLs, hood vents, sportier body kit for a low stance and large alloy rims.

The sloping roofline, LED taillamps and diffuser contribute to a dynamic design not seen in any of Mahindra’s products. The concept was styled by Mahindra and built by Pininfarina, which is now under the ownership of Mahindra.

Under the hood is a tuned mHawk engine, which produces a 210 hp, thanks to a next gen turbocharger. It also has an advanced combustion system and low pressure EGR for better refinement. Mahindra claims that the XUV Aero is capable of sprinting from 0-100 km/h in under 6 seconds.
