Mahindra & Mahindra is the most successful in putting India’s auto industry on the international map. The XUV700 created panic in the market and caused it to crash in 2021. The new XUV700 has been released at a price ex-showroom of Rs 11.99 lakh. This vehicle will replace the XUV500. It will also compete with 7-seater and 5-seater vehicles such as the Tata Safari or the Hyundai Creta. Mahindra will do many new things in this market with the XUV700. This vehicle will be available in two series: MX and AX. MX will receive one variant, while MX will have three. We visited Mahindra’s new track to learn more about the vehicle and its powerful petrol-diesel motor.
You will see the Mahindra XUV700 closely. This SUV gives you an impression of all three vehicles XUV300 to XUV500 and Marazzo. The vehicle’s front has been carefully designed. The vehicle’s front has been given a premium look with the role of a six-slot grille. With the help of new LED lights, the XUV300 and not the V-shape of the XUV300 C shapes have been added. Clear View LED headlight and sequential indicator and the fog lamps and LED cornering light is also attractive.
The segment’s first bright door handle, which measures 4695mm in length and is supported by 18-inch alloy tires, makes this side profile stand out. Although the vehicle’s front profile is a little dim, the flashy indicators and arrowhead LED taillights to make it stand out at the rear. Are. It is difficult to compare it against the Tata Safari and Hyundai Alcazar, but there is confusion about design and build quality. However, the Hyundai Creta or Harrier look much better because of their more significant and better road presence.
Mahindra vehicles are usually more strong-worded, but interiors can be used in English words such as intelligent and premium.

Performance and Engine
Every vehicle should have great features. If a vehicle’s engine is not powerful, it can cause customers to lose faith in the vehicle and start looking at other vehicles in the same segment. It is. Mahindra also beat the power specs with the XUV700. In XUV700, the company is the best in its segment for petrol and diesel engines. The turbo GDi petrol 2.0-liter produces 200 PS at 5000 rpm and 380 Nm at 1750- 3000 RPM. The diesel engine, a 2.2-liter turbo GDi petrol, produces 185 PS at 5000rpm and 450 Nm torque at 1750-2800 rpm. This engine comes with a manual transmission, which generates torque of 420Nm. Both engines are available with 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmissions.
The most remarkable thing about the XUV700 is its powerful engine. This makes it very unique. We used the High Speedtrac to drive the vehicle at its maximum speed on Mahindra’s Proving Track. It is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful Mahindra vehicles. The vehicle is easy to control, and you feel secure while driving. The test was conducted with a petrol-powered automatic. It showed some hesitation at the beginning, but it changes its style once it reaches 2000 rpm. After that, the vehicle is happy until around 5000. We were a bit disappointed in the steering input, which we did not find progressive.
Our verdict on Ride Quality
This suspension system is excellent for Indian roads. The multilink independent suspension works well. Premium vehicles also have the Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS). This technology can do everything, from emergency braking to lane driving. Two dozen other features, such as rollover mitigation, traction control and rollover mitigation, have been added. This also includes driver dryness detection. If you blink while driving, the vehicle will alert you. Overall, Mahindra launched the XUV700 SUV, which is a lucrative deal for Indian customers.
