XUV700: Mahindra's new flagship
Despite the new name, the XUV700 is, in essence, the successor to the extremely popular XUV500. This will be most evident in its design, which is expected to add many new design elements, including the new headlights with C-shaped DRLs, pop-out door handles that sit flush with the body, new grille, tail-lights and alloy wheels. Although, its overall styling will be reminiscent of the XUV500. The new XUV700 will be the first model from the Mahindra SUV range to recieve the brand's new logo.
Mahindra will also pack the XUV700 with lots of features, to increase its appeal. The equipment on offer will likely include a dual-screen layout – one for the infotainment and the other for the instrument cluster – AdrenoX interface for the infotainment, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, voice commands carried out by Amazon Alexa virtual assistant, advance driver assist systems (ADAS) (a segment first) , a panoramic sunroof, automatic climate control, and an electronic parking brake. Additionally, the XUV700 will also be offered in two seating layouts – a 6-seat layout with captain’s seats in the middle row and a 7-seat layout with a bench-style seat in the middle row.
As previously reported us, the XUV700 will have the most powerful engines in the segment, because Mahindra will offer a 200hp, 2.0-litre, four-cylinder mStallion turbo-petrol and a 185hp, 2.2-litre, four-cylinder mHawk turbo-diesel unit with the model. Both engines will get manual and automatic gearbox options.
