Now, Mahindra is all set to launch XUV700 as it has been already listed on the website. Although we are not aware of the launch timings, we do know a few things for sure. Let’s take a look.
A feature that most of its competitors will sweat on. We will get an option All-wheel drive system along with the 2WD option. Rivals such as Tata Safari and MG Hector Plus are only offered in 2WD drive type. This already puts Mahindra XUV700 ahead in the race towards being the first choice for many car lovers.
Flush door handles
Say goodbye to the conventional handles. You must have seen such door handles on Range Rover Velar. Well, XUV700 will be boasting flush door handles too which will seamlessly integrate into the door frame giving it a futuristic and premium feel.

Mahindra is known to make safe cars. XUV300, India’s safest car with a 5-star rating for adult occupancy and 4-star for child occupancy at the Global NCAP. Or the 4×4 Thar that scored a 4×4 rating at the same platform. And now, we do expect similar or better results from the Mahindra XUV700. We expect the SUV to have 6 airbags or more, ABS with EBD, ISOFIX child seat mounts, disc brake at all the corners, hill start and hold assist, electronic parking brakes and much more. Not to forget, XUV700 will have ADAS or Advanced Driver Assistance System that will help the driver in having better control over the car.
Diesel and Petrol engine options
Mahindra will equip XUV700 with 2.0-litre diesel as well as petrol engine options. Both the engines are expected to be newly developed and can be the addition to mStallion engines. You must note that this will give XUV700 an upper hand over Tata Safari which has a diesel engine only. You can expect manual as well automatic transmission option.
