The Mahindra XUV 700 is going to launch in India during the first week of October 2018. Its imminent launch brings SsangYong Rexton prices down by INR 9.5 lakhs.

If you have been wanting to buy a premium full-sized SUV, this might just be the right time for you!

Why is that you may ask?

As you must be aware, Mahindra is soon going to launch a new premium SUV, codenamed as the Y400 and likely to be called the XUV 700, in India during the month of October this year.

This new premium SUV is effectively going to replace the current spec SsangYong Rexton as it is based on the 2018 iteration of the aforementioned product. That said, Mahindra dealerships still have a considerable amount of stock of the old SsangYong Rexton.

Now, ahead of the launch of the Mahindra XUV 700, these dealerships have to clear this unsold stock and make way for the new product. In order to achieve this, Mahindra dealerships are offering a staggering discount of INR 9.5 lakhs on the unsold stock of the Old SsangYong Rexton.
