The hype for XUV700 is getting real and Mahindra isn’t stopping teasing us with its rad features. Most of the features that Mahindra has teased so far are going to be first in this segment. From being the most powerful and now to having a plethora of premium features, the XUV700 is going to be an absolute riot! Mahindra just shared a new feature of the upcoming XUV700 – Hello Driver Drowsiness Detection.
How does it work?
The way this works is that if the driver is tired and falls asleep while driving, the XUV700 detects this and gently reminds the driver to stay alert. It is a very vital feature in terms of safety as a lot of accidents happen while the driver dozes off while driving.
Smart door handles
Previously, Mahindra also teased smart door handles of the XUV700. Usually seen in luxury cars, smart door handles sit flush inside the body and pop out when the car is unlocked. They again fold back in when not needed. This gives the car a clean look that is devoid of any protrusions such as door handles. This would be a segment-first feature and surely a unique one.
We’ve already seen the presence of the flush door handles on the test mules however it remains to be seen whether it will be standard or available only on the higher variants.
Personalized safety alerts
Talking about its safety features, the XUV700 is also going to boast of ‘personalized over-speeding alerts’ feature. This feature enables you to create a personalized over-speeding message which would go off after the desired speed limit. This alert could be in the voice of the driving person’s loved one which could encourage him/her to slow down.
This would prove to be quite effective as the alert would have a more psychological effect on the person driving rather than a usual beep for over-speeding. These small but effective features might just set the XUV700 apart from its feature-laden competitors.
The Mahindra XUV700 is all set to debut soon and we expect it to launch around September. The SUV is regularly spotted doing final rounds of testing and a reveal might just be around the corner going by the teasers.
