Mahindra XUV700: variants and prices
At the time of the SUV’s debut, Mahindra had only revealed prices for select 5-seat variants – the MX petrol and diesel-manuals, and the AX3 and AX5 petrol-manuals. However, that was just the proverbial icing on the cake. Mahindra is offering a range of engine and gearbox options and seating configurations for the XUV700 with as many as 21 variants to choose from.
The entry-level MX is a strict 5-seater and, as previously revealed, is available with both petrol and diesel engines paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox as standard. The prices for the MX Series are given below:
|Mahindra XUV700 MX prices|
|MX Petrol MT 5-seater||Rs 11.99 lakh|

The AX series makes up the bulk of the line-up. Available in three trim levels – AX3, AX5 and AX7 – the AX Series is available in both 5- and 7-seat configurations, with petrol and diesel engine options. While the AX3 and AX5 are available in both 5- and 7-seat configurations, the fully loaded AX7 is only available in a 7-seat layout.
All three variants are available with both 2.0-litre turbo-petrol and 2.2-litre diesel engine options, paired with either a manual or automatic gearbox. The fully loaded AX7 diesel-auto also gets the option of all-wheel drive.

Mahindra XUV700 Luxury pack: What do you get?
While we have previously spoken about what equipment you would get in each variant, the Luxury pack had not yet been detailed. While the XUV700 AX7 does get you tech such as Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS), dual zone climate control, twin 10.25-inch displays for infotainment and instrumentation. The Luxury pack also adds in the Sony 3D surround sound system, 360-degree camera, electrically deployable door handles, blind spot monitor, wireless phone charger and an electronic parking brake.
Mahindra XUV700: engine and gearbox
Moving to the engine line-up, the XUV700 is available with a pair of four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines. Starting with the petrol, the 2.0-litre, mStallion turbocharged unit pumps out a notable 200hp and 380Nm of torque and is paired with either a 6-speed manual or automatic gearbox.
The diesel is Mahindra’s new 2.2-litre mHawk turbocharged unit that is offered in two states of tune. The lower-powered unit (reserved for the entry-level MX version) produces 155hp and 360Nm and is available solely with a 6-speed manual, while the unit in the AX variants churn out 185hp and 420Nm (450Nm with the automatic gearbox) and gets an automatic gearbox option.
The diesel engine in the AX series also comes with four drive modes – Zip, Zap, Zoom and Custom – which are claimed to alter performance and steering response.
Mahindra XUV700: Leasing, subscription and financing
Aside from announcing prices and revealing the date for bookings, Mahindra has also announced a new tailor-made financing initiative called FinX for the XUV700. Under the programme buyers will be able to avail up to 100 percent of on-road funding for the vehicle including prices of accessories and maintenance contracts. Other benefits offered will include low EMI schemes and extended tenure options up to 8 years along with step-up and balloon schemes.
The carmaker has also tied up with Mahindra Finance and Orix to offer the XUV700 under lease to corporate customers along with making the SUV available under the company’s subscription programme.
