    Mahindra will offer the XUV700 in two series – MX and AdrenoX (AX). The MX series has a single MX trim and will be available with a petrol engine and a lower-output diesel engine. The AdrenoX series, on the other hand, will feature three trim levels – AX3, AX5 and AX7 – and be offered with a petrol and a higher-output diesel engine.

    Mahindra has already revealed prices for the 5-seater versions of the MX petrol-manual, MX diesel-manual, AX3 petrol-manual and AX5 petrol-manual. Complete pricing for the XUV700 line-up will be revealed sometime in October.

    Over the AX3 trim, the XUV700 AX5 adds features like a panoramic sunroof, LED headlights, sequential turn indicators, cornering lights, curtain airbags and 17-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels. 

    The top-of-the-range XUV700 AX7 trim will get all of the above features and more like Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) technology, a Driver drowsiness alert, dual-zone automatic climate control, leatherette upholstery, leather wrapped steering and gear lever, 6-way power adjustable driver seat with memory function, side airbags (seven in total) and 18-inch diamond-cut alloys.

    Apart from the aforementioned features, Mahindra will also offer various option packs to add equipment like wireless chargers, 360-degree cameras, a 3D surround sound system, blind view monitor and an electronic parking brake.

    Mahindra XUV700: engine and gearbox

    As mentioned earlier, the new XUV700 is available with petrol and diesel engine options. There’s a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder, Mahindra mStallion turbo-petrol unit that’s tuned to produce 200hp and 380Nm, while the diesel is a 2.2-litre, four-cylinder mHawk turbocharged unit that comes in two states of tune. The lower-powered unit (reserved for the entry level MX version) produces 155hp and 360Nm, while the unit in the AX variants churns out 185hp and 420Nm (450Nm with the automatic gearbox). The diesel engine also comes with four drive modes – Zip, Zap, Zoom and Custom – which are claimed to alter performance and steering response.

    Both engines can be had with 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic gearbox options, though the lower-spec diesel will be available with a manual only. There is also an all-wheel-drive model on offer.

    Mahindra XUV700: rivals

    Given its flexible seating configuration options, the new Mahindra XUV700 will have to contend with both, 5- and 7-seater SUVs. It will rival 5-seat SUVs like the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, MG Hector, Skoda Kushaq, the upcoming Volkswagen Taigun and three-row SUVs like the Tata SafariMG Hector Plus and the Hyundai Alcazar
