Today is the day – the Mahindra XUV700 will finally make its world premiere this afternoon, at 4 pm IST; just a day prior to India’s 75th Independence Day. The XUV700 – which marks a generational shift from the original XUV500 – has been a long time coming, and is set to be launched this festive season as action in the three-row SUV space continues to intensify.

Spy images leaked a few days ago confirmed the Mahindra XUV700 takes from where the last XUV500 left off. It has a similar squared-off grille with vertical chrome highlights and angular LED headlights with a more exaggerated interpretation of the fanged extensions typical of the XUV500. The flush-fitting door handles are a segment-first, and the SUV appears to have 18-inch alloy wheels. At the rear, the angular theme continues at the back with the full LED tail-lights, and the blacked-out pillars create a floating roof effect.

Mahindra has also previously revealed some key details about the Mahindra XUV700’s interior and features list, including a fairly clear look at its dashboard. The highlight here is the twin-screen layout, which is quite reminiscent of a modern Mercedes. There’s a fully digital instrument cluster, a bespoke Sony 3D sound system, with the touchscreen unit running a new OS that Mahindra terms ‘AdrenoX’. This system integrates Alexa-based voice commands and drive modes named ‘Zip’, ‘Zap’ and ‘Zoom’ (exclusive to the diesel XUV700).

Already known are other features such as a large panoramic sunroof, driver fatigue alert system, an air filter and personalised safety messages. The XUV700 is also expected to get certain advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).

This Mahindra XUV700 will be based on a new monocoque architecture. The SUV is expected to come with the same engines that debuted on the second-gen Mahindra Thar, but in different states of tune: the 2.0-litre Stallion turbo-petrol with approximately 190 hp and around 350 Nm, and the 2.2-litre mHawk diesel with close to 190 hp and over 400 Nm of torque. Both engines are likely to come with a choice of a six-speed manual and a six-speed torque-converter automatic. Mahindra has also confirmed an AWD system will be available as an option.

The Mahindra XUV700 will take on the Tata Safari, MG Hector Plus and the Hyundai Alcazar. Mahindra XUV700 prices are expected to be in the range of Rs 16 to 23 lakh (ex-showroom).
