Mahindra will soon launch the all-new XUV700 in the Indian market. Mahindra & Mahindra is currently testing the all-new vehicles in various terrains across India. In fact, testing has been happening for a long time now. After multiple delays to launch the all-new XUV700, Mahindra has finally started releasing new teaser images. The latest teaser image about the XUV700 reveals that the car will get the largest panoramic sunroof in the segment.
The new teaser video released by Mahindra and Mahindra claims that the car will get the largest panoramic sunroof. Earlier, Mahindra teasers revealed that the model will come equipped with features like auto booster headlamps.
The all-new Mahindra XUV700 is based on a brand-new platform. Internally known as the W601, the upcoming vehicle is much bigger than the current-generation XUV500. The vehicle will get an all-new design with a new front grille, flush-fit door handles, newly designed alloy wheels, newly designed headlamps and tail lamps and more.
With the rising popularity of panoramic sunroofs in India, Mahindra has revealed through the teaser image that the vehicle will come with a massive glass sunroof that will measure 1,360 mm X 870 mm. The panoramic sunroof of the XUV700 has already been spotted on the test mules with camouflage.
Recently, Hyundai launched the all-new Alcazar in the Indian market and all the variants of the model come with a standard panoramic sunroof. Other models in the segment like the Tata Safari, the MG Hector Plus offer the panoramic sunroof as well. So it sure is becoming a significant feature in the cars in this segment.
Will be available with petrol and diesel engine options
Mahindra will offer the all-new XUV700 with both petrol and diesel engine options. The petrol-powered models are gaining popularity in the Indian market in recent time. The petrol variants of the XUV700 will get powered by the 2.0-litre mStallion turbocharged engine.
The diesel variants are currently being tested with the 2.2-litre mHawk diesel. However, Mahindra is testing three different states of tunes. The least powerful tune is the 180 Bhp tune and there is the most powerful one, which is the 210 Bhp.
In between, there is a 190 Bhp option available too. The 210 Bhp engine generates a massive torque of 450 Nm and Mahindra may launch it with the facelifted version of the XUV700. We are not sure if the engine will be available with the XUV700 at the time of the launch.
Mahindra will start the Standard Operating Procedure of the XUV700 by August end due to the shortage of semiconductors in the market. Also, there is a shortage of the all-digital instrument cluster. The displays are supplied by Visteon. So there is a possibility that Mahindra may launch the higher-end variants with the analogue cluster or delay the deliveries of the variants that will offer the digital instrument cluster.
