Here is a cool and relatively simple concept design version of the Mahindra XUV700 facelift. The XUV700 has impressed one and all ever since the launch in the 5-seat avatar. The mid-size SUV is aiming to capture the entire segment with the option of 5-seat and 7-seat configurations (to be launched later). This segment has become increasingly competitive with a ton of players bringing their products. This includes Skoda and VW with Kushaq and Taigun respectively, Hyundai with Creta and Alcazar, MG Astor, Hector and Hector Plus, Tata Harrier and Safari. Each SUV has its own strengths and weaknesses. It will be interesting to see how the segment pans out when all the players start selling. Until then, let us see what this facelift version of the design concept of Mahindra XUV700 has in store for us.
XUV700 Facelift Concept Design
There are quite a few changes to the SUV which make it appeal desirable. To start with, the front of the XUV700 has been revamped with a different pattern of the grille, sharper C-shaped LED DRLs around the LED headlamps and vertical LED foglamps with angular housing. Just these two changes make the front look a lot different than the regular XUV700. On the sides, the low-profile tyres with sporty blacked-out design make the side profile stand out. The black A, B and C-pillars offer a great contrast to the white colour of the SUV. The rear remains mostly unchanged with a roof-integrated spoiler, shark fin antenna, sculpted boot lid and split-LED taillamps. All in all, this facelift concept design of the Mahindra XUV700 is surely something one can get with the help of aftermarket modifications.
The recently launched Mahindra XUV700 will be sold with both petrol and diesel engine options. The former will be a 2.0-litre turbocharged unit that will churn out a maximum power of 200 PS and a peak torque of 380 Nm. Meanwhile, the Diesel engine will be available in multiple states of tune. The lower versions will get 155 PS and 360 Nm, while the higher positioned models will benefit from 185 PS and 420 Nm. In fact, the same engine will put out 450 Nm with an automatic transmission. Speaking of the transmission options, both the petrol and Diesel engine variants will be available with 6-speed manual and automatic transmission choices. The 5-seat versions of the XUV700 currently range between Rs 11.99 lakh and Rs 14.99 lakh, ex-showroom.
