    Mahindra XUV700: AdrenoX infomatics suite with Alexa Auto

    The first new feature confirmed by the brand is the AdrenoX suite, which will be the user interface used for the SUV's infotainment system. The XUV700, as reported by us before, will come with dual HD screens on the dashboard, with the one on the right featuring the instrument cluster and having driver-related features, and the one in the center for infotainment duties. The AdrenoX interface will also feature voice commands that will be carried out via Amazon Alexa virtual assistant. The Alexa virtual assistant will carry out duties via voice commands for opening and closing sunroof, music system functions and HVAC controls to name a few.

    The XUV700 will come with multiple drive modes, these are cheekily named as “Zip”, “Zap” and “Zoom”. Additionally, there is also a custom drive mode on offer. Mahindra has also confirmed that these drive modes will only be seen on the XUV700 diesel and not on the petrol version.

    The teaser has also revealed that the higher variants of the XUV700 will come with a Sony music system that will also have a 3D sound feature and multiple speakers that will also be placed on the roof, like the ones seen on the Thar. This feature can also be controlled by the Alexa voice command setup.

    A closer look at the screen reveals details like an in-car air purifier that will be seen on the XUV700. Additionally, the infotainment will have an in-built e-SIM setup as well that will give in-car, real-time weather updates among other functions. Higher variants will also get a dual-zone climate control for the HVAC.

    The teaser also gives us a sneak peek at the XUV700’s interior for the first time. The cabin will get a light-coloured upholstery, with a layered dashboard layout. Furthermore, brushed aluminium accents on the flat-bottom steering wheel and the dashboard will add to the premium look.

    In the previous teasers, Mahindra has confirmed numerous other features for the XUV700 like personalised safety alerts, flush door handles, a drowsiness detection feature and smart headlamps.
