It seems like it was a pretty busy weekend for the Mahindra and its XUV700. First the design prototype leak and now Mahindra’s new teaser for the interiors. Mahindra released a short teaser that shows the interiors of the XUV700. It also talks about the infotainment system and its features so let’s take a look at them.
The interiors of the XUV700 will feature two HD screens side by side. The screen on the right will be the instrument cluster with drive-related information and the on the left will be the infotainment system. The infotainment system will feature an AdrenoX system and interface. It will feature Amazon Alexa voice commands which will perform functions such as climate control, opening and closing of the panoramic sunroof and other infotainment related voice commands. It will also feature an inbuilt e-Sim which would be used for connected apps and real-time weather updates. The XUV700 will also feature drive modes namely Zip, Zap and Zoom which would be equivalent to Eco, Comfort and Sports mode.
There will also be a custom mode where the driver can set the different parameters according to his/her needs. However, these drive modes will be available only in the diesel variants and not the petrol. The teaser also shows a Sony 3D music system with roof-mounted speakers. The speakers will have an extensive equalizer and sound settings to cater to everyone’s music taste. Other details include a rotary dial on the centre console which could be used to control the infotainment system. The interiors also show the multifunction steering wheel, push-button start-stop, electronic parking brake and dual-zone climate control.
The interior features white leather seats, a soft-touch dashboard, brushed aluminium finish running across the dashboard and on the steering wheel, piano black finish on the centre console and chrome dials for climate control. Mahindra also showed smart door handles, air purifier, personalized safety alerts and booster headlamps in the previous teasers.
The XUV700 will feature both petrol and diesel powertrains with the option of a manual and automatic gearbox. The petrol engine will be a turbocharged 2.0 litre Mstallion engine pushing out 200hp. The diesel engine will be a 2.2 litre Mhawk 185 hp engine. Both will get a 6 speed manual and an Aisin derived 6 speed torque converter automatic gearbox.
