Based on the video, we expect the next-gen XUV500 to feature larger boot with all-row seats in use. The current-gen model features a very small and impractical boot with the row seat in use. However, the third-row on the new XUV500 will continue to get a 50:50 split to increase the boot space and also ac fan speed control as well.

Moving to the central console, we also noticed a climate control system that has received a complete redesign. It now features a more traditional design of having two dials on either side with a host of buttons in the middle. The button clustered console design on the current-gen has been removed.

From the previous spy images, the 2021 XUV500 is expected to come packed with several other features on the centre console including a rotatory dial, electronic parking brake and a start/stop button; among others. While the rotary dial on the centre console is speculated to be a drive mode selector, it could also be an alternate input for the touchscreen infotainment system.
