Mahindra recently revealed that it will launch the all-new XUV700 in the Indian market next year. Mahindra has been testing an SUV for a long time on the public roads under heavy camouflage and that vehicle will get the name of the XUV700 and the XUV500 as earlier assumed. Based on the spy pictures of the vehicle, here are a few rendered images that show what the Mahindra XUV700 will look like from all around.
The rendered images are done by Shoeb R Kalania for IAB. The Mahindra XUV700 is significantly larger than the current-generation XUV500. It also looks much sharper in the rendering images and will surely attract a lot of eyes on the roads.
The front gets a massive signature Mahindra grille with six slats. It also gets a chrome bar running on the top of the grille. The headlamps are the most interesting part of the front design. The large mirrored C-shape DRLs look like they drip from the headlamp cluster to reach the bumper of the vehicle. The lower part of the bumper also gets LED fog lamps and they are quite slim and make the car look much more aggressive.
On the side, the Mahindra XUV700 gets large windows that will ensure that the cabin remains well-lit and the occupants do not feel claustrophobic. The door handles are flush-type. Which means that merge into the body completely. The alloy wheels are 18-inch alloy wheels with multiple spoke and it adds a premium look to the vehicle.
The rear of the vehicle gets a sporty touch. It gets a roof-mounted spoiler with a high-mounted tail lamp. There are split tail lamps with a tri-arrow design and a thick black stripe connects both the lamps too.
The upcoming Mahindra XUV700 will offer a luxurious cabin space. It gets an all-new dashboard that has no resemblance to the XUV500. The steering wheel is also new and it gets multiple function buttons that can be used to control a lot of things inside the vehicle including the infotainment system and the instrument cluster. We are not sure but the all-new Mahindra XUV700 will also get voice commands and voice-based features.
The instrument cluster is all-digital and it also gets a much bigger infotainment system. The central console gets a rotary dial for changing the modes. Also, there should be traction-control system based features that will allow various terrain modes too.
The all-new Mahindra XUV700 will get both petrol and diesel engine options. The petrol variants will get the 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine that also powers the all-new Mahindra Thar. It will generate more power with the XUV700. The diesel variants will get powered by the updated 2.2-litre mHawk engine that will produce more power and torque. Both the petrol and diesel engine options will get the manual as well as automatic transmission options. Mahindra will also offer AWD with the all-new XUV700.
