Comparison Verdict

While the Tata Safari has been renewed, Mahindra is also working on introducing a new-gen version of the XUV500, which upon launch, will go on to set new benchmarks in the mid-size SUV segment with its extensive features list.

We expect Mahindra to introduce the new-gen XUV500 in the Indian market in the coming months, but prices will certainly be higher than the current model on sale. That said, the newly launched 2021 Tata Safari is a much superior offering as compared to the ageing Mahindra XUV500 as of now.
