Mahindra has introduced a new version of its flagship XUV700 SUV in an effort to strengthen its position in the mid-size SUV market. Customers looking for a mid-size SUV with three rows of seating at a reasonable price can find this version attractive. The entry-level MX trim of the XUV700 now comes in a 7-seater version for the first time.

Launch of the Mahindra XUV700 MX 7-Seater:

The AX 3 Diesel MT 7-Seater was the most affordable 7-seater version of the XUV700 prior to the introduction of the new MX 7-seater. The AX 3 Diesel MT 7-Seater, which belonged to the more expensive trim substrata, cost Rs. 17.99 lakh (ex-sh).

Mahindra suffered a little setback because Tata Safari and MG Hector Plus, the XUV700’s closest rivals, both provided base diesel 7-seaters at even less money-Rs. 16.19 lakh (ex-sh).

Mahindra has now outperformed even the Tata Safari, costing Rs. 15 lakh (ex-sh) for the base diesel 7-seater XUV700. The base MX 7-Seater Diesel MT model of the XUV700 thus costs Rs. 1.19 lakh (ex-sh), Rs. 2 lakh (ex-sh) less than the Tata Safari, and Rs. 3 lakh (ex-sh) less than the previous most economical diesel 7-seater variation of the XUV700.

It is identical to its five-seater predecessor in terms of equipment and creature comforts, and is based on the MX trim. In relation to this, the recently released XUV700 MX 7-Seater Diesel MT costs Rs. 40,000 (ex-sh) more than the MX 5-Seater Diesel MT (non-ESP model). Mahindra plans to further capitalise on the mid-size SUV market, which it now leads, with competitive pricing.

What does it receive?

The features of the new model are comparable to those of the MX 5-Seater. Currently, the MX 7-Seater is only available with diesel powertrains; however, a petrol MT version of the vehicle may be released in response to consumer demand. The same colors as the MX trim-Napoli Black, Everest White, Midnight Black, Dazzling Red, and Red Rage-are also anticipated.

Third-row AC vents, a second-row center armrest with cup holders, second-row 60:40 split seats, and similar features might be added over the MX 5-Seater version. A 7-inch MID in a semi-digital instrument cluster and an 8-inch infotainment touchscreen are two more standout features.

The 2.2L Turbo Diesel engine of the recently released Mahindra XUV700 MX 7-Seater is the same as that of its 5-seater counterpart. This engine’s configuration, which has a 6-speed manual gearbox and a maximum power and torque of 360 Nm and 153 bhp, is comparable to that of the MX 5-Seater.
