Here is the first video of the accident involving a Mahindra XUV700 immediately after taking the delivery. The XUV700 is selling like hot cake at the moment. Mahindra has already received over 70,000 bookings within a month of making its debut in the Indian market. These are unprecedented numbers for any car in India. Along with a ton of premium segment-first features, the mid-size SUV boasts of a full 5-star safety rating at the GNCAP. This makes the entire proposition of buying the XUV700 even more compelling. Let us take a look at the details of this accident and what the result is.
Accident of Mahindra XUV700 after Delivery
This is an unfortunate event where the SUV crashed after the delivery. But there are many instances of such occurrences because many people are generally excited while driving the brand new car and they are not fully accustomed to what the new car has to offer and how will it behave. That is the reason why we see so many crashes of new cars. In this case, the details of how this happened are unclear. But the damage on the SUV is quite evident. The bonnet of the car seems to have suffered significant damage. It has completely been deformed and popped up. There might be a little damage to the engine bay area like the radiator which is generally placed at the front. But apart from that, the A-pillar and side fender looks unaffected which is great. This highlights the build quality of the SUV.
The Mahindra XUV700 comes with both petrol and diesel engine options. The former is a 2.0-litre turbocharged unit that churns out a maximum power of 200 PS and a peak torque of 380 Nm. Meanwhile, the Diesel engine is available in multiple states of tune. The lower versions get 155 PS and 360 Nm, while the higher positioned models 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 prices range between Rs 12.49 lakh and Rs 22.99 lakh, ex-showroom. The direct competitors include the likes of Creta, Seltos, Hector, Harrier in the 5-seat configuration and Alcazar, Safari and Hector Plus in the 7-seat arrangement.
