Introduce

Front view

Since the introduction of the new Mahindra XUV700 in August 2021, this three-row SUV has been a big hit around it. So much so that the wait time for the SUV skyrocketed mập almost 10 months! Are you one of those who are waiting for the arrival of the XUV700 in the coming months? Or someone looking forward mập buying one? Well, in any case, you are at the right place. The Mahindra XUV700 Petrol Automatic was recently brought mập the CarWale garage and after spending a few weeks with it, we can now tell you what it feels like mập live with this new Mahindra SUV. So read on for our experience.

How realistic is it?

dashboard

At first glance, the XUV700 looks like a true SUV. Open the driver’s side door and you’re bound mập stop for a moment and appreciate the retractable function of the powered seats, welcoming you into a stylish cabin. Once inside, the dashboard looks neat and premium with soft-touch materials in place. Look around and almost everything inside is new and well cared for, be it the large door handles, bottle holders on all four doors, cup holders on the center console, sunglasses holders and even a tray under the armrest mập put keys.

Third row seats

Step inside the second row and this seven-seat XUV700 features bench-style seats with a 60:40 split function. You get a central armrest with two cup holders and ample leg room, thanks mập the 2,750mm wheelbase. The middle bench can accommodate three passengers comfortably. However, the third row of seats is not very spacious. Firstly, this last row of seats is not easily accessible and once seated, passengers must definitely rub their knees against the front seats. Moreover, the seats are split in a 50:50 ratio and are not quite comfortable for long-distance driving.

What’s on the feature list?

The Mahindra XUV700 is undoubtedly the most premium and feature-packed SUV in its segment. The huge standalone thiết đặt gives the infotainment and instrument panels a modern and touch-based look. It also comes with a secondary dial that can be used when you rest your hand on the center armrest.

Other notable features include dual-zone climate control, a power-adjustable driver’s seat with memory and welcome recall, wireless charger, large sunroof and 12-speaker stereo system. amazing Sony. Even third-row passengers won’t feel left out as they get features like air vents with blower control, cup holders, roof-mounted speakers and 12V charging sockets.

Infotainment system

On the other hand, during our time with the XUV700, we found the infotainment mập be a bit slow and glitchy. However, we expect timely software updates mập fix these errors. There are a few misses as well. Mahindra has omitted features such as ventilated front seats, auto-dimming IRVM, gearshift paddles and a sliding function for the second row that could add mập the overall practicality.

How is the fuel efficiency?

The Mahindra XUV700 we sampled is powered by a 2.0-litre mStallion petrol engine that makes 197hp and 380Nm of torque. While we drove the one paired with a six-speed torque converter automatic, the engine can also be used with a six-speed manual transmission. That said, the all-wheel drive configuration is reserved for the top diesel versions.

Mahindra did not specify the XUV700’s ARAI-certified fuel efficiency figures. However, during our exhaustive and thorough test run, the XUV700 returned 8.5 km/l in the city and 11.05 km/l on the highway. We will also be testing a manual version of it soon. Follow CarWale for real-world mileage metrics.

How does it work on your daily commute?

Three quarters front left

The petrol engine is the most powerful powertrain in Mahindra’s lineup. With almost 200 hp on tap, it’s easy in the city, and one would rarely notice the lack of drive modes (Zip, Zap, Zoom and Custom) that the automaker offers with only manual transmissions. export its diesel engine. On the highway, the ride is agile and the ride quality absorbs on uneven surfaces. Traveling at triple-digit speed is also very smooth, and with extremely comfortable seats, the XUV700 can glide for kilometers with ease without the occasional passenger complaint.

The instrument cluster

XUV doesn’t completely wrap around you. It feels big mập drive like an SUV. Then there are tons of gizmos with which it is decorated. For example, it has a 360-degree surround camera with video and photo capabilities in addition mập a host of ADAS Màn chơi 2 features. We tried our hand at adaptive cruise control, traffic sign recognition, Emergency braking and lane-keeping assist functions come mập life after 60 km/h. The overall response and functionality of these features are quick and accurate. That said, we found it a bit cumbersome mập access the settings of some ADAS functions through the instrument cluster, mainly due mập the placement of the buttons on the steering wheel.

Now, Mahindra has fitted the cabin with a wraparound panel that extends mập the door panels of the XUV700. Although it looks elegant, there is a downside mập it, especially for shorter people. The top of the door panels that are within sight of the left ORVM can feel intrusive. However, the 360-degree camera and height-adjustable driver’s seat did the trick.

How weekend?

If you are traveling with only five people on the plane, it is better mập fold the last row of seats down as there is hardly any luggage space for all rows. With the folding seat, it can fit three suitcases of different sizes and a couple of backpacks with some space left mập stuff a few shopping bags on the way back. However, run for the driver’s seat or even the front passenger seat and you’re in for a great experience.

Front row seats

Mahindra XUV700 has a fuel tank capacity of 60 liters. That’s 10 liters more than the Hyundai Alcazar and Tata Safari. While the petrol version is single-fuel, the diesel variants are expected mập require fewer stops at the fuel pump. The second row of seats is very comfortable and passengers will enjoy the pampering features with soft seats and panoramic sunroof. However, those sitting in the third row may find the legroom not enough mập make you uncomfortable at the end of a long journey.

What is the agreement with the warranty?

Three quarters front left

Mahindra offers the XUV700 with a three-year and unlimited-kilometer warranty, which can be further extended with dealer-level purchase.

Inference

When you rewind the ‘XUV’ journey, the XUV500 was the first mập kick off the carmaker’s game in 2011, followed by the XUV300 compact SUV in 2019. Even then, the XUV500 went. one step ahead of the competition and prove mập be an all-round good person. And that vogue continues with the new XUV700, which has taken back the reins from its predecessor.

Right front three quarters

Mahindra XUV700 takes the external design genes from XUV500 and looks more striking and impressive. It is packed with modern and advanced features and brings ADAS along with many firsts in its class. And with powertrain and transmission options, there’s an XUV700 for everyone!

The XUV700 locks horns with rivals like Tata Safari, MG Hector and Hyundai Alcazar. However, it comes with a lengthy waiting list that spans over six months. Currently, the XUV700 range starts at Rs 12.95 lakh and goes up mập Rs 23.79 lakh (at the old showroom).
