The Mahindra XUV700 comes with a long list of ADAS features like Forward Collision Warning, Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Keep Assist, Lane Departure Warning and Adaptive Cruise Control. Here are some of them in real driving conditions.
The Lane Keep Assist function on the Mahindra XUV700 is put on test by this YouTuber. As everyone knows by now, the XUV700 comes loaded with Level 2 ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance System) features. The aim is to make driving on the highways more secure. These features could guide the driver if he/she gets careless by doing some actions sensing danger. This is a video where the YouTuber used the Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Keep Assist features for the purpose of demonstration. We must urge you to not try these carelessly. These functions are there for emergency situations.

The YouTuber explains the working of the ADAS features by driving the SUV on the highway. He explains that he drove the SUV in the city and the Forward Collision Warning and Automatic Emergency Braking were working very well. On the highway, he demonstrates that the SUV is capable of recognizing the lane markings and assists you to keep in the lane by moving the steering wheel automatically. For the adaptive cruise control function, it brakes automatically if the car in the front slows down and accelerates once the road is clear to the pre-set speed. It also keeps blinking the warning sign if the driver doesn’t hold the steering for a long time. Remember, it is not a substitute for autonomous driving but just to assist the driver. The YouTuber also focuses on this aspect and urges the listeners not to rely completely on the tech but use it as only an assist system to handle the situation if humans make any errors.
