Mahindra recently launched the facelift of its flagship XUV500 SUV in India with an updated design, added features and increased power output. The XUV500 is a favourite among buyers who want to buy a premium SUV below Rs 20 lakhs, with seven seats, sunroof, automatic gearbox and other host of features. What the XUV500 was missing on, however, was a decent infotainment system, as the current unit is small in size.

It seems like the folks at Laxo Orbis had a plan to make the infotainment system of the XUV500 meatier. And as they say – the bigger the merrier! Laxo Orbis is installing a Tesla inspired 12.1-inch touchscreen infotainment screen in the XUV500 that looks way too cool.



The large infotainment screen powered by Android Operating System is first- and only-of-its kind in India (till the time Tesla makes it to the country) and has functions like rear-view camera, 3D view parking, and all other touchscreen functions including climate control system.

To house this unit, climate control knobs have been removed, and can be controlled via the infotainment system. The 7.0 Android OS has Wi-Fi connectivity along with Bluetooth, 3G internet, 1080P video playback and more.

Mahindra launched the facelifted XUV500 SUV in India at a starting price of Rs 12.32 Lakh (ex-showroom, Mumbai). There are 12 variants to choose from and ranges from Rs 12.32 Lakh to Rs 17.88 Lakh (all prices ex-showroom, Mumbai). It is the Mahindra’s first global-standard SUV.

The segment in which the XUV500 stands is now getting more and more competitive with the growing market of Tata Hexa and Jeep Compass, so there are a lot of eyeballs waiting to see what Mahindra has to offer in the XUV500 facelift.
