Mahindra is yet to reveal the official name of the SUV, but the company is expected to go with the XUV700 moniker due to the popularity of XUV500 in India. The XUV700 will be a rebadged version of the Rexton G4 and will feature subtle changes to suit the Indian conditions.

The previous generation Rexton was sold under the SsangYong brand name and the SUV failed to attract the Indian buyers. Now, Mahindra has decided to retail the SUV as the company is popular for its SUVs in the country. We expect the XUV700 to be a hit in the Indian market.

    The Mahindra XUV700 will be a seven-seater SUV and will draw power from a 2.2-litre turbocharged diesel engine producing 178bhp and 420Nm of torque. The engine will be mated to a 7-speed automatic gearbox sourced from Mercedes-Benz.

    Mahindra is expected to offer both rear-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive system on the XUV700. Thanks to its high ground clearance, the XUV700 can handle off-roading pretty well. But Mahindra will not brand the XUV700 as a hardcore off-roader, instead, it will be a luxury SUV which is capable of handling short off-road patches.
