Images of the upcoming Bharat Stage VI (BS6) compliant Mahindra XUV500 have recently surfaced online. The spy video posted by the YouTube handle Power Stroke, reveals a host of different BS6 compliant Mahindra products, including the Bolero pick-up, was spotted undergoing testing, and in their midst, we also get to see a BS6 compliant Mahindra XUV500. This is not the first Mahindra SUV to have been spotted testing for the new emission norms. Early this month we also shared spy photos of the BS6 compliant XUV300 undergoing testing in India, which indicates that Mahindra plans to be ready for the new emission norms very much in advance.

Visually, the Mahindra XUV500 prototype looks no different from the regular model except for the green colour 'BSVI-D' sticker above the fuel cap area, indicating that this is the diesel model. The motor is possibly the all-new 2.0-litre diesel engine that will replace the 2.2-litre mHawk diesel engine. The oil burner is said to come in three states of tune - 140 bhp, 160 bhp, and 180 bhp. However, it is too soon to guess which one will be offered at the time of the April 2020 deadline.

The W3 variant gets power adjustable ORVMs, Engine Immobilizer, electrically operated dual HVAC and even projector headlamps and it doesn't miss out on the LED DRLs either or even the chrome grille.
