Mahindra showcased the new-gen SsangYong G4 Rexton SUV at the Auto Expo 2018 which will be sold as a Mahindra-badged product in the Indian market. To be slotted above the XUV500, the full-size seven-seater SUV could be called as XUV700 when it is launched in the country.
Now, Rushlane has spotted the Mahindra XUV700 in India without any disguise. The spotted Mahindra XUV700 is finished in silver colour, and the badging has been masked. The full-size premium SUV is based on the Quad-Frame platform which gives high structural strength and low body weight.
The Mahindra XUV700 will be a seven-seater SUV with three rows, and the interior will be spacious and luxurious. The SUV will get reclining and massage seats, 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, dual-zone automatic climate control, electric sunroof and much more.
The second row of the Mahindra XUV700 features an integrated communication system with a 10.1-inch centre console display and 9.2-inch monitor on each headrest. The communication system is complemented by WiFi connectivity, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
The Mahindra XUV700 draws power from a 2.2-litre Euro VI diesel engine churning out 178bhp and 420Nm of peak torque. The engine is mated to a 7-speed Mercedes-Benz automatic gearbox.
Mahindra could also offer an all-new 2-litre turbocharged petrol engine producing 222bhp and 350Nm of torque.
The new Mahindra XUV700 is loaded with a host of safety features such as nine airbags, advanced emergency braking (AEBS) blind spot detection, lane departure warning; lane change assist, high beam assist and traffic safety assist.
