Mahindra Imperio Exterior

The facelifted commercial vehicle looks in complete contrast to the Xylo MPV it’s based on and share platform with as the new pick-up has a revamped exterior design. The existing Genio sold in the domestic market is basically a re-modified commercial version of the seven-seater Xylo.

Whilst the pre-facelifted model borrowed the front fascia design of the Xylo, the launched Imperio gets an all-new slotted front grille with silver accents making the commercial pick-up a lot more sharper. The set of new sleeker rectangular headlamps depose the gawky ones and make the Imperio to have a bolder and aggressive stance with wider air dams.

The front bumper has also been redesigned with integrated circular foglights and new turn indicators on the front panel reassert the Indian manufacturer’s move to bring forth the pick-up in line with a more passenger vehicle appearance. It has payload capacity of 1,240kg and sits on 16-inch alloy wheels.

Whilst the flatter bonnet with a bulge rising from the sides is an attractive addition to the improved visual of the commercial vehicle, the front fascia styling could be emulated in the future Mahindra SUV models.

Mahindra Imperio Engine and Performance

As for the mechanicals, no changes have been made with the outgoing model’s power unit being carried forward. The Mahindra Imperio gets power from the 2.5-litre four-cylinder mDI CRDe diesel engine that will produce about 75bhp of maximum power and 220Nm of peak torque.

The torquey diesel mill will be mated to a five-speed manual transmission and only two-wheel drive system has been made available for Indian market as before.

For export markets, the Imperio will have the more powerful 2.2-litre mHawk diesel engine churning out 120bhp of power and 280Nm of peak torque. It will bear a standard two-wheel drive system with an all-wheel drive being offered as option.

It features two driving modes: Eco and Power with a black dashboard. Inside you could find large AC vents in the middle, bucket front seats, 2-DIN music system, tilt-adjustable power steering and three-spoke signature wheel.

The new commercial truck was more likely to come aboard with the country’s largest SUV maker’s start-stop micro-hybrid technology for better fuel efficiency but it turned out not to be the case.
