Mahindra has decided to update the feature list of the XUV700 SUV. While the updated feature list sports a few new features, a few features have also been deleted as well.
We believe this update has been introduced to speed up the production of the XUV700 to overcome the semiconductor shortage. Moreover, it is very essential to speed up the production of the XUV700 as the bookings for the SUV now stand at 1.5 lakhs.
Though it is a record-breaking number in the SUV segment, the waiting period for some variants of the XUV700 SUV goes up to 2 years and changes have been introduced in variants such as MX, AX3, AX5, AX7, and AX7 L.
Starting with the base MX variant of the XUV700, Mahindra has deleted features such as rear parking sensors, height adjustable driver's seat, rear spoiler and follow me home headlamps. On the other hand, the AX3 trim level loses out on features such as rear wiper, defogger, and selective unlock for doors and boot lid.
Coming to the higher trim levels such as AX5 and AX7, these variants no longer sport the stylish-looking LED sequential turn indicators. However, the most controversial deletion is the removal of Adaptive Cruise Control feature in the XUV700 AX7 L trim level.
Speaking about feature addition, the top-spec AX7L AT trim gets adaptive cruise control, start/stop function and sequential turn indicators.
Speaking about the Mahindra XUV700, despite the long waiting period for the Mahindra XUV700 SUV, customers are still rushing into the showrooms across the country to book the SUV.
In terms of powertrain options, the Mahindra XUV700 SUV comes with 3 engine options - One petrol engine and two diesel engines. Gearbox options include a 6-speed manual transmission or a 6-speed automatic gearbox. It is also worth mentioning that the entry-level diesel engine in the lower state of tune is only available with a 6-speed manual transmission.
Coming to the specification of these powertrains, the petrol engine is a 2.0-litre, turbocharged, 4-cylinder engine with 197bhp of peak power and 380Nm of peak torque. While, both the diesel engines are 2.2-litre, turbocharged, 4-cylinder engines. However, the more powerful version produces an astonishing 182bhp of peak power and 450Nm of peak torque.
On the other hand, the diesel powertrain used in the lower variant puts out a respectable 153bhp of peak power and 360Nm of peak torque - Which itself is plenty for an SUV of this size.
One of the reasons for the success of the Mahindra XUV700 is that the company has loaded the SUV with plenty of features. This was crucial in attracting buyers from different segments.
The features list includes dual-zone climate control, a large 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment unit, an equally large digital driver's display, a panoramic sunroof, electronic parking brake, wireless charging, a multi-function flat-bottom steering wheel, a 360-degree camera, powered front seats with memory function, drive modes and a few more.
In addition to that, the safety systems in the Mahindra XUV700 are even more astonishing with safety systems such as seven airbags, ABS with EBD, ESP, Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and a lot more. Thanks to all these safety features, the Mahindra XUV700 is among the safest cars currently available in India and the SUV has scored a 5-Star safety rating for Adult Occupant Protection from Global-NCAP.
Thoughts About The Mahindra XUV700 Feature List Update
The Mahindra XUV700 SUV demands a long waiting period - Thanks to the semiconductor shortage. Though not many features have been deleted, we believe Mahindra could overcome the semiconductor shortage up to a certain extent. This move is likely to speed up the production of the SUV, resulting in a much lower waiting period.
