Last month, Mahindra unveiled their all-new seven seater SUV XUV700 in the market. Mahindra is expected to start the bookings and the announce the price of all variants next month. Mahindra XUV700 is available in both and 5 and 7 seater options and competes with cars like Hyundai Alcazar, Tata Safari and MG Hector Plus in the market. Mahindra has already started production of the SUV and the colour options have also been shared by Mahindra online. Here we have a render image that shows Mahindra XUV700 will look like, if it were to get a Dark Knight edition.
The render images have been created and shared by the_stalker_artist_hardik on Instagram. Mahindra recently mentioned on a social media post about the 5 shades that will be available with upcoming Mahindra XUV700. There was Everest White, Electric Blue, Dazzling Silver, Red Rage and Midnight Black. The rendered version seen here in the post is actually based on the Midnight black version. The Midnight black has a slight blueish tint to it while the one reimagined by the artist gets deep black.
The artist has just changed the colour of the SUV to differentiate it from the regular version. No major cosmetic changes are seen anywhere. The front gets gloss black grille with brushed aluminium inserts, all LED headlamps with blacked out interiors, twin LED DRLs, thick black claddings are all retained.
Even the alloy wheels are of the same design and have not been blacked out. The ORVMs get integrated LED turn indicators, shark fin antenna, roof mounted spoilers are all retained in the Knight Black edition too. The artist has given tail lamps a smoked out effect, which gives it a sporty look overall. Interiors on this XUV700 has also been blacked out for a uniform look.
Overall, the colour does look good on the SUV but, we are not sure whether Mahindra will be offering such a colour with the XUV700. Mahindra will be offering XUV700 in MX and AX trims. The MX will be offered with 5 seater option only. The AX will get both 5 and 7 seater options. Mahindra is expected to offer as many as 28 variants for the SUV.
Mahindra XUV700 when launched will be the flagship model from the manufacturer. It offers several segment first features with it. It has large panoramic sunroof, dual zone climate control, Advanced Driver Assistance System, 360 degree camera, multi-function steering wheel, drive modes (for diesel) and many more features.
Mahindra is offering two engine options with XUV700. There is a 2.0 litre turbocharged petrol engine that generates 200 Ps and 380 Nm of peak torque. The petrol version of XUV700 is the most powerful SUV in the segment. The diesel version is powered by a 2.2 litre turbo diesel engine and it generates different power and torque figures depending up on the variant and transmission.
In base MX trims, this diesel engine generates 155 Ps and 360 Nm of peak torque when paired with a manual gearbox. In AX trims, the same engine generates 185 Ps and 420 Nm of peak torque for manual and 450 Nm of torque for the automatic version. Both petrol and diesel engine options are available with manual and automatic transmission options.
