Mahindra has introduced the Mahindra XUV700, a new three-row SUV in India. With the unveiling of the new model, bookings for the new model have begun and may be made online or at a dealership. It comes in five or seven-seater configurations, however, it is not a direct replacement for the XUV500.
2021 Mahindra XUV700 Engine, Gearbox
The XUV700 will be available with two engine options: the Thar’s 2.0-litre mStallion turbo-petrol and the identical 2.2-liter mHawk turbo diesel. With the 6-speed manual transmission, the diesel produces 185 horsepower and 420 Nm. With both transmissions, the petrol engine produces 200 horsepower and 380 Nm. There’s also an AWD option, which Mahindra claims can go from zero to sixty kilometers per hour in under five seconds.
2021 Mahindra XUV700 MX Features
The MX and AX product lines of the Mahindra XUV700 will be offered. For those on a tighter budget or who are uninterested in the various options on offer, the MX is a bare-bones entry-spec model. The AX model features an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto, a 7-inch instrument cluster, and 17-inch steel wheels.
2021 Mahindra XUV700 AX Features
The AX line is the more well-equipped of the two available on the XUV700. This version is available with automatic transmissions, in 5- and 7-seater configurations, and with AWD if desired. The panoramic sunroof, 17-inch alloy wheels, curtain airbags, LED headlamps, sequential turn indicators, and cornering lamps are included in the next AX5 level. The whole range of ADAS functions, including driving tiredness alert, adaptive cruise control with braking, and the lane-keeping function, are available when you upgrade to the top AX7 version.
A 12-speaker Sony sound system, flush door handles, 360-degree video, blind-spot monitoring, electronic parking brake, and wireless charging will all be included on the 2017 Nissan Leaf. Option packs will be available, the details of which will be published at a later date.
2021 Mahindra XUV700 Exterior
The Mahindra XUV700 continues where the previous XUV500 left off, with numerous design motifs carried over to the new 7-seater. A squarish grille with vertical chrome highlights and an angular LED headlight unit are also present. The bodywork follows the significant curves, including the bulged bodywork beneath the window line, and the kink at the C-pillar continues here.
2021 Mahindra XUV700 Interior
A broad central tunnel and a modern layered dashboard with what appear to be significant patches of soft-touch materials and varied textures on the horizontally split surfaces, as well as a new steering wheel design, are shown in the basic layout of the cabin. The floating twin-screen arrangement, which is reminiscent of a modern Mercedes, is the main talking point on the inside of the Mahindra XUV700.
