Coming to the engine, the new XUV500 continues with the 2.2-liter four-cylinder diesel engine which produces 140 bhp and 330 Nm of torque, paired to a 6-speed manual transmission. Engineers have improved the dynamic torque and also improved the fuel efficiency of the SUV (up from 15.1 km/l to 16 km/l) thanks to a new ECU. A Brake Energy Recuperation System is also fitted on the XUV500 now.
Finally, an enhanced suspension at the front and rear promises all-round stability and better comfort. The XUV500 facelift also gets ESP-9 with rollover mitigation system for better control.
