Here’s a video of a red Mahindra XUV700 along with another video of a red XUV500 to highlight the difference between between the two SUVs
The looks of the upcoming Mahindra XUV700 have once again been revealed by a new video clip that came online earlier today. The most anticipated SUV of this year, XUV700 will be positioned above the XUV500 in our market. The 7-seat SUV is bound to be filled with a plethora of segment-first features as Mahindra has teased in multiple videos of the official YouTube channel. While the exterior design images have already been leaked earlier, this video of the red Mahindra XUV700 lets us have another look at the vehicle.
The designers of the new SUV seems to have taken care of even the minutest of details to ensure that he does justice to the appearance. The bonnet is sculpted and angled towards to nose at the centre of the grille. The grille itself along with the new logo looks modern. The dual-spoke vertical chrome-finished front grille gives the front-end a beefy appearance. The C-shaped LED DRLs encapsulate the bold LED headlamps and the fog lamps are placed at the edges of the sporty bumper. The grey front splitter makes the SUV look rugged. The large sunroof is also visible from the front itself and the ORVMs on the wing mirrors are a nice design touch. All in all, the butch SUV looks imposing and has a dominating road presence which the Indian buyers are fans of. Compared to the XUV500, the new model has a more premium grille and more radically shaped DRLs.
Features and Specs
On the features front, it seems hard to beat the new Mahindra XUV700. This includes a large connected dual-screen setup for the Infotainment System and Driver’s Instrument Cluster, AdrenoX Connected Car Tech App with Alexa Support, and Premium 3D Surround System by Sony, Auto Booster Headlamps which increases the intensity of lights after the driver crosses the speed of 80 kmph, Smart Door Handles with proximity sensors, Customized Safety Alerts with personalized alert notes, Smart Air Purifier, Stylish Alloy Wheel Design, Driver Drowsiness Monitoring Alert and Boss Mode feature for the seat adjustment.
The powertrain options for the Mahindra XUV700 will include a 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine with direct injection technology from Mahindra’s very own mStallion range of engines, making 190 hp and 380 Nm and a 2.2-litre tried and tested diesel engine that might be tuned to put out around 185 hp of max power. There will be options of 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic gearboxes with these engines. The SUV will even offer Drive Modes (Zip, Zap, Zoom and Custom). This feature will be initially available with just the diesel powertrain, which is interesting. There might be hybrid powertrain options as well to aid the fuel economy and probably enhance the power figures slightly. The prices of the Mahindra XUV700 are expected to be in the range of Rs 16 lakh to Rs 22 lakh, ex-showroom. IN comparison, the XUV500 comes with a 2.2-litre mHawk diesel motor that outputs 153PS.
