How well does the XUV700 compare against its five-seater rivals?

Mahindra has revealed the prices of the XUV700’s select entry-level manual variants. You can have it in five- and seven-seater configurations. Considering starting prices are on the lower side, we expect it to go up against several SUVs within the range of Rs 10 lakh to Rs 20 lakh. 

We have pitted the XUV 700 against its five-seater rivals to give a clearer picture of all the differences between them.

The XUV700 is the longest car in this comparison. It also has the longest wheelbase, on par with the MG Hector. As far as width is concerned, it is just 4mm less than the Tata Harrier. In height, the XUV700 is just 5mm shorter than the MG Hector.

We don’t have boot space figures for the XUV700, but as of now, the MG Hector is the leader in the segment, that too by quite a margin.

The diesel engine of the XUV700 is available in two states of tune. The less powerful version is reserved for the lower ‘MX’ variant and can only be had with a 6-speed manual. It betters the Creta and Seltos, both in terms of power and torque. The same engine, when retuned, is once again the most powerful in its segment. In fact, its torque levels match those of SUVs from even a segment above.

Feature Highlights

For comparison purposes, we put together all the useful features of a car side-by-side. However, this time around, we don’t have the XUV700’s complete feature list. So, we are only choosing the most important features from all the cars.

Price

 

Mahindra XUV700

Hyundai Creta

Kia Seltos

MG Hector

Tata Harrier

Price Range

Rs 12 lakh to Rs 22 lakh (top-end is estimated)

Rs 10.16 lakh to Rs 17.87 lakh

Rs 9.95 lakh to Rs 17.65 lakh

Rs 13.49 lakh to Rs 19.20 lakh

Rs 14.39 lakh to Rs 21.09 lakh

Mahindra’s pricing of the XUV700 has not only taken its ‘size’ rivals (like the Hector and Harrier) by surprise, but also the smaller Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos. In fact, the top-end models of some sub-4 metre SUVs will be more expensive than the base model of the XUV700. This is an example of some super-aggressive pricing by Mahindra, and if they can apply the same strategy to the SUV’s top-spec variants, the XUV700 will undoubtedly become the most value-for-money offering in its segment.
