Mahindra XUV700 doing a speed test at 195 km/h shows why it is so dangerous

Driving a powerful SUV like the Mahindra XUV700 on an open highway can be a delightful experience. However, some people get carried away by the sheer performance and capabilities of such vehicles and tend to over speed on highways. Driving over speed limits can be a thrilling experience, but it is illegal and extremely unsafe on unpredictable highways in India. Here’s one such instance of overspeeding in a Mahindra XUV700, which was recorded and is now going viral on social media platforms.

A YouTube video from Nikhil Rana shows a person driving his Mahindra XUV700 at a speed of 195 kmph on a highway somewhere in Kerala. The video shows a prolonged glimpse of the instrument console of the XUV700, on which the speedometer consistently shows speeds between 192-195 kmph. The person behind the steering wheel of this XUV700 is holding the steering wheel with his right hand and recording his antics with a mobile phone in his left hand.

The video, which the presenter is showing here, is going viral on social media channels. The person driving the XUV700 wanted to attain fame on social media with his dangerous driving stunts. However, considering that the speed limit on Indian highways is 120 kmph, this video turned out to be proof of overspeeding against the XUV700 owner.

Video becoming viral

The video is garnering the attention of many netizens who are calling out the dangerous driving mannerisms of the XUV700 driver. It is unclear whether this overspeeding incident related to the Mahindra XUV700 and its owner has come to the notice of the police. In any case, suitable action has to be taken against such irresponsible car drivers, who are putting their lives and those of other motorists at risk.

Driving a vehicle at such a high speed is very dangerous on an Indian highway, which is full of unpredictability. Here, on highways, some people drive irresponsibly by driving in the wrong lane, taking a U-turn without any prior notice, overspeeding, and talking on mobile phones while driving. In addition, stray animals also come from nowhere, and due to a lack of promptness in seeing them and taking action, many vehicle drivers end up colliding with such animals.

The Mahindra XUV700 has already become a part of many unfortunate and silly antics of car drivers in the past. Many people have uploaded videos of wrongly using the ADAS system for their ‘convenience’ to create reels to attain social media fame.
