How well do the numbers and feature list of the XUV700 fare against its seven-seater rivals?

While most other manufacturers have separate five- and seven-seater models, Mahindra is offering the option to choose both with the XUV700. We had previously compared the upcoming Mahindra SUV with its five-seater rivals, and now we are doing the same with its seven-seater rivals.

The diesel engine of the XUV700 can be had in two states of tune. Even the lower state of tune offers more torque than its rivals, whereas the higher state of tune offers more performance overall than its rivals. Apart from the Hector Plus, all other cars in this comparison get the choice of a diesel-automatic.

      Mahindra compromise on engine quality, suspension & many critical items which makes vehicle reliable. Only lowering price is a marketing gimmick. External looks is only cosmetic.
