  • Improvised features
  • improved drive.


  • Front bumper doesn’t look smarter.

Since there have been no changes in the technical department, therefore there is no important change in this department. This also clears that there is need of  room for improvement in the way XUV500 handles. Had there been a successful revamp in the steering, dampers, springs and bars things would have changed upside down for XUV 500. But it cant be said that there has been no change in terms of performance, the SUV did feel more responsible specifically at high speeds, But there is still a big  scope for improvement.
