Mahindra XUV700: variant-wise engine, gearbox, seating layouts

The XUV700 line-up starts with the entry-level MX variant that gets a 200hp, petrol and a lower output 155hp diesel  engine. While the petrol engine will be offered with both 6-speed manual and automatic gearboxes, the diesel engine only gets the manual gearbox option. Also, the MX Series will only be available with a five-seater configuration.

The AdrenoX series, on the other hand, will feature three trims – AX3, AX5 and AX7 – and will be offered with the 200hp petrol and a higher-output 185hp diesel engine. All  XUV700 AX series SUVs get the option of both manual and automatic gearboxes, except for the petrol AX3 and AX5 seven-seater variants, which are only offered in manual guise.  

As far as seating options go, the XUV700 AX3 and AX5 will be sold with the choice between five- or seven-seater layouts, while the AX7 is solely available as a seven-seater. Additionally, the all-wheel drive is solely reserved for the top-spec AX7 diesel-AT variant.

The top-spec XUV700 AX7 trims will likely also be offered with three optional packs, as denoted by the C, T and L abbreviations, which possibly suggest ‘Comfort’, ‘Technology’, and ‘Luxury’ packs.

Mahindra XUV700: pricing and rivals

Mahindra has already revealed prices for the 5-seater versions of the MX petrol-manual (Rs 11.99 lakh), MX diesel-manual (Rs 12.49 lakh), AX3 petrol-manual (Rs 13.99 lakh) and AX5 petrol-manual (Rs 14.99 lakh). Complete pricing for the XUV700 line-up will be revealed in the coming days.

Given its flexible seating configuration options, the new Mahindra XUV700 will have to contend with both, 5- and 7-seater SUVs. It will rival 5-seat SUVs like the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, MG Hector, Skoda Kushaq, the upcoming Volkswagen Taigun and three-row SUVs like the Tata Safari, MG Hector Plus and the Hyundai Alcazar.
