Mahindra Group Chairman Anand Mahindra unveiled the concept for its Coupe-SUV, XUV Aero, on Day 2 of the ongoing Auto Expo. Based on its flagship vehicle, the XUV 500, the XUV Aero is meaner, leaner and more rugged. The macho-yet-sleek design and concept is similar to contemporary crossovers from BMW and Mercedes.
The concept designed by the tractor and utility vehicle major’s Indian designers in Mumbai got assistance in terms of inputs from Pininfarina in Italy. XUV Aero is powered by a 2.2-litre mHawk engine and has a maximum power output of 197 bhp. The coupe-crossover is 4600 mm long, 1890 mm wide and 1680 mm high.
The XUV Aero was conceptualised based on consumer feedback with focus on design along with the usual M&M features of being reliable and strong, said Mahindra on Thursday. The car major also launched a new range of buses, a new range of multi-utility vehicles, and the new Thar Day Break edition apart from showcasing its Ssangyong Tivoli at the Auto Expo.
