    Mahindra XUV700: variant-wise engine, gearbox, seating layouts

    The XUV700 line-up starts with the entry-level MX variant that gets a 200hp, petrol and a lower output 155hp diesel engine. While the petrol engine will be offered with 6-speed manual and automatic gearboxes, the diesel engine only gets the manual. Also, the MX Series will only be available as a five-seater.

    The AdrenoX series, on the other hand, will feature three trims – AX3, AX5 and AX7 – and will be offered with the 200hp petrol and a higher-output 185hp diesel engine. All XUV700 AX series SUVs, except for the petrol AX3 and AX5 seven-seater variants, get the option of both manual and automatic gearboxes.

    As far as seating options go, the XUV700 AX3 and AX5 will be sold as a five or seven-seater, while the AX7 is solely available as a seven-seater. Additionally, the all-wheel drive is solely reserved for the top-spec AX7 diesel-AT variant.

    The top-spec XUV700 AX7 trims will likely also be offered with three optional packs, as denoted by the C, T and L abbreviations, which possibly suggest ‘Comfort’, ‘Technology’, and ‘Luxury’ packs.

    Poll of the month

    At Rs 1.85 lakh, the Bajaj Pulsar NS400Z is the most affordable 40hp bike in India. Would you pick it over similarly priced bikes with less power and features?

    Yes, 40hp at this price is unheard of!



    No, it's a decade-old bike in a revamped suit.



    Great value but doesn't look unique enough.
