Mahindra has finally revealed the much-awaited XUV700 and we can’t wait to see how it drives! Mahindra says that the XUV700 has something for everyone and that they are going to offer a whole variety of options. Though this isn’t the final variant list and it is subject to change, Let’s break down the highlights of the extensive variants and powertrain options the XUV700 will be available with.
The Mahindra XUV700 will come with an optional AWD. Though we still don’t know if it will be available for both petrol or diesel powertrains, it will have an upper hand over the competition with this option. The XUV700 will have an option of 5 or 7 seats as well.
The XUV700 will come with two engine choices with both offering a 6 speed manual and a 6 speed automatic gearbox. The first engine is a 2 litre 4-cylinder turbocharged Mstallion petrol engine which produces 200hp and 380nm of torque. The next engine is the 2.2 litre 4-cylinder Mhawk diesel engine. The diesel engine will get two states of tune. The first will be 155hp and 360nm of torque for lower variants. The higher state of tune will be 185hp and 420nm of torque for higher variants. The diesel automatic variant gets a higher torque output of 450nm.
The MX series will sit at the bottom of the XUV700 range. We expect it to be priced aggressively to lure in customers from mid-size SUV segment. The MX series will get an option of mStallion petrol engine and the mHawk diesel engine in the 155hp tune.
