The Mahindra XUV700 is arguably the most awaited SUV in the Indian market. With an aggressive entry-level pricing, extensive feature list, segment leading safety and class-leading performance, the SUV is going to fly off the shelves for sure! It may sound unconventional but what if you could take your XUV700 to the track? Enter the Mahindra XUV700 sports edition. A 3D render by Instagram user @zephyr_designz who has turned the SUV into a track attack beast!
Keen-eyed enthusiasts would immediately notice the XUV700 sports edition painted in the shade of orange which is reminiscent of the facelifted XUV500. The front bumper is redesigned and it sports a more aggressive design now. The intercooler is exposed as well for better cooling. It has been lowered for a better stance and cornering. It features 7 spoke twin alloy wheels wrapped in Pirelli P-Zero tyres. The rear sees the arrowhead taillamps replaced with infinite LED taillamps.
The bumper also features an aggressive diffusor with exits for the dual exhausts. Performance would be the last thing one would worry about since the XUV700 in its stock form already dominates the competition! The petrol engine is a 2 litre 4-cylinder turbocharged Mstallion engine that produces 200hp and 380nm of torque. The diesel engine is a 2.2 litre 4-cylinder Mhawk engine that produces 185hp and 420nm of torque. Automatic variants get 450nm of torque. Both the engines get a manual and an automatic gearbox. One could also spec it with all-wheel drive for added grip on the track.
