If we compare the Funster to the currently existing model of the XUV500, we can make out that the future SUV is offering a much mature look. We can expect the production units of the future XUV500 to be more sharp and modern compared to the first-den XUV500. FYI, the first generation of the XUV500 is almost a decade old by now!
