Mahindra XUV700 Spied Completely Undisguised!
Its quirky design details and large proportions come across as an evolution of the XUV500 it’ll be replacing
Mahindra XUV700 exterior has been spied with next to no camouflage.
Most design details had already been spied on various test mules such as the front fascia, rear profile and lighting elements.
It will offer premium features including segment-first advanced driver assist systems.
The XUV700 will be offered with 2-litre turbo-petrol and 2.2-litre diesel engines while an AWD option will also be there.
It will likely make its official debut in August and it is expected to be priced from Rs 16 lakh to Rs 22 lakh (ex-showroom).
While we were expecting another teaser for the Mahindra XUV700 this weekend, we’ve now got a clear look at the whole thing. It’s been spied with almost no camouflage, thus revealing its exterior design.
Various exterior design elements had already been spied on test mules. We can see the teardrop headlamps with integrated LED daytime running lights and blacked out grille. The front bumper doesn’t look chunky thanks to various contrasting elements like the skid plate, fog lamp housing and air dam.
Around the rear, it has a sloped end to the roofline, integrated roof spoiler and large taillamps with angular details. The shoulder line rises sharply on the rear door and is more prominent as it reaches the taillamps to give the XUV700’s design some muscle definition. The alloy wheels on the spied model seem a size too small for the body. Unfortunately, the XUV700 was spied in one of Mahindra’s dull copper paint options which doesn’t seem complimentary to the car’s design. It may also not be the top-spec variant of the mid-size SUV. Mahindra is expected to officially unveil the XUV700 in August.
Previous teasers and spy shots have already shown the XUV700 to be equipped with premium features like a panoramic sunroof, high-beam assist, flush-fitting door handles, two integrated displays on the dashboard for the touchscreen infotainment and the driver’s display. It is also expected to offer a 360-degree camera, dual-zone climate control, ventilated front seats and a built-in air filter.
Mahindra will be the first to offer ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) in this segment. This could include features such as auto emergency braking, lane-keep assist, blind-spot detection and adaptive cruise control.
The XUV700 will be available with the same choice of engines as the Thar, i.e., the 2-litre turbo-petrol and 2.2-litre diesel. Both should be offered with 6-speed manual and automatic transmissions. They’ll also be in a higher state of tune compared to the 150PS and 130PS output for the petrol and diesel engines respectively when powering the Thar.
