The tastefully done modifications on the dual-tone red-black Mahindra XUV700 accentuate the overall appeal of the mid-size SUV
Regulars to CarBlogIndia would remember we reported about a Mahindra XUV700 owner who got his vehicle modified with a dual-tone red-black paint scheme. In addition to that, there have been some new changes to the SUV that we’ll talk later in this post. The XUV700 has garnered an unprecedented response from Indian car buyers ever since it was launched last year. As a matter of fact, it still commands waiting periods until 2024 in some cities for selected variants. With bold looks, segment-first features, off-roading capabilities, powerful engines and a premium cabin, it is the one to beat in its class.

Mahindra XUV700 With Red-Black Paint
The video we have above focuses on a brand new JBL sound system that has been installed in the SUV in addition to the stock speakers. Of course, it is the modified paint scheme that will be quicker to catch your attention. But the aural experience this SUV promises to provide will surely catch the fancy of the audiophiles. As per the video, the stock speakers were retained as they had a pretty good output but the SUV has received a 10-inch subwoofer along with an amplifier. Moreover, the video goes on to state how the dampening installed in the panels of the SUV have played a huge role in enriching the audio experience. It is worth mentioning here that many car owners do not install additional dampening while upgrading the audio system. Doing so not only affects the audio output but even leads to development of vibrations in many interior panels of the vehicle.
Speaking of the custom red-black paint scheme on this Mahindra XUV700, the way it must’ve achieved is by designing the black graphics on the base red-painted vehicle. The black graphics have been installed from almost halfway toward the rear section of the SUV. There are sporty elements on the side skirting and front fender which look adventurous. The alloy wheels have been painted black, while the brake callipers are finished in red. If you are looking for a tasteful graphics modification for your vehicle, something like this could be worth a try.
