Here’re the important details of Mahindra XUV700, launching on 14th August globally.
The Mahindra XUV 700 is all set to make its debut on 14 August globally and the bookings for the vehicle are also expected to begin on the same date. It will replace the existing Mahindra XUV 500 and will be available in six/seven-seater configurations. The SUV will be re-introduced as a five-seater later and will rival the Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos. As of now, its main rivals are the Tata Safari, Hyundai Alcazar and MG Hector Plus.
Talking about the interior, it is expected to feature an all-black cabin with all the modern equipment. The cabin is supposed to have a futuristic feel combined with minimalism. Some of the noteworthy features of Mahindra XUV700 include:
- AdrenoX and Amazon Alexa-powered 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system
- Multiple drive modes
- 3D Sony Sound System
- 25-inch fully digital instrument cluster
- A panoramic sunroof
- Driver drowsiness detection
- High-beam assist
- 360-degree camera
- Dual-zone climate control
- A built-in air filter & more
The new kid is also likely to get the ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems), possibly including auto emergency braking, lane-keep assist, blind-spot detection, and adaptive cruise control.
Moving on to the powertrain aspect, Mahindra XUV 700 will be getting two engine options. It will be powered by Thar’s 2-litre turbo-petrol and 2.2-litre diesel engines but will be slightly more tuned and are expected to be paired with 6-speed automatic and manual gearbox with an optional 4WD system.
The SUV segment is the hottest segment in the Indian car market and everyone is looking to capture the most market share. But not everybody is capable of making products with superior quality and attractive pricing. In order to capture the most market share, Mahindra should price their offering attractively to undercut the competition and draw buyers to their dealerships. The price range for the Mahindra XUV 700 is expected to be between Rs 16 Lakhs and Rs 22 Lakhs.
