    Mahindra XUV700: engine and gearbox

    Powering the new XUV700 is a pair of four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines. The petrol unit is a 2.0-litre, mStallion turbocharged engine that develops 200hp and 380Nm (segment best figures). Gearbox options include a 6-speed manual or automatic gearbox.

    On the other hand, the diesel engine is a 2.2-litre, mHawk turbocharged unit that is offered in two states of tune. The lower output unit (offered in the entry-level MX trims) produces 155hp and 360Nm and is available solely with a 6-speed manual. The higher-spec AX variants get a 185hp and 420Nm (450Nm with the automatic gearbox) version of the engine, as well as the option for an automatic gearbox and all-wheel drive.

    Mahindra XUV700: competition check

    Given the relatively large price band of the XUV700 which currently ranges from Rs 12.49 lakh to Rs 22.99 lakh (ex-showroom, India), the model competes not only with other seven-seat rivals like the Tata Safari, Hyundai Alcazar and MG Hector Plus, but also some smaller five-seat mid-size SUVs like the Hyundai CretaKia SeltosMG HectorSkoda Kushaq and VW Taigun.
