Mahindra XUV700 was officially unveiled exactly a month ago – but bookings haven’t started officially yet
Mahindra has managed to hit the ball out of the park with the introduction of the XUV700. It not only offers a plethora of features on the SUV, but also offers them at a very competitive price. Even the base MX variant is surprisingly well equipped and can give tough competition to the segment-related SUVs like Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos.
Mahindra is preparing to launch its new flagship SUV XUV700 in India. The SUV has already been unveiled, and is currently on multi-city tour across major cities of India. Official booking has not started yet. Some dealers are accepting informal bookings.
Mahindra XUV700 Variants
Mahindra XUV700 will be offered in a choice of four variants MX3, AX3, AX5 and AX7. These will be further broken down through engine/transmission options, seating options, etc. A total of 34 trims of the new Mahindra XUV700 will be on offer at the time of launch.
All XUV700 variants will be offered in petrol and diesel engine options. The MX5 trims are the shortest, limited to just 3. These are Petrol MT, Petrol AT and Diesel MT (all are 5 seater). The AX3 variant will be offered in 7 trims of petrol MT 5s, petrol MT 7s, petrol AT 5s, diesel MT 5s, diesel MT 7s, diesel AT 5s and diesel AT 7s. Take a detailed look at all the variants and trims on offer with the new Mahindra XUV700.
Like the AX3 variant, the Mahindra XUV700 AX5 variant is also offered in a choice of 7 trims. The maximum trims on offer are with the AX7 variant. The Mahindra XUV700 AX7 is offered in a choice of 17 trims. This means that out of all 34 trims, half of the trims belong to this top-of-the-line variant. Interestingly, Mahindra has not disclosed the price of the AX7 variant.
The AX7 trim is offered as a 7 seater only. There is no 5 seater on offer with the AX7. Mahindra will offer the AX7 with a package of comfort, luxury and tech. The details of what these packs will add in the form of features are yet to be revealed.
