Mahindra launched XUV700 couple of months ago and the manufacturer had promised to gift custom made XUV700 SUVs to Gold medalists in Tokyo Olympics- Neeraj Chopra and Sumit Antil. Both of them had secured gold medals in Javelin throw in the Olympics. Sumit Antil secured the medal in Paralympics. Mahindra handed over the special edition or the Javelin Edition of XUV700 to the winners earlier this month and here we have a video of the Mahindra XUV700 Javelin Edition that was gifted to Paralympian Sumit Antil.
The video has been uploaded by Anubhav Chauhan on their YouTube channel and it is probably the first video on the internet showing detailed walkaround of the XUV700 Javelin Edition. Vlogger shows all the changes that are there in the Javelin Edition in this video. He starts with the front end. The design of the XUV700 remains the same but, Mahindra has made some cosmetic changes to differentiate it from regular XUV700s.
The front grille for example gets the same vertical grille but, instead of aluminium finished vertical slats, it gets gold finished ones. The headlamps are all LED and it gets the twin LEDDRL with dynamic LED turn indicator. The SUV also gets LED fog lamps. Mahindra logo at the front has been finished in gold as well. Coming to the side profile, the XUV gets 68.55 branding on the front fender. This number is basically the distance that Sumit Antil actually threw the Javelin.
The wheels remain the same as stock but, the Mahindra logo in the center of 18 inch alloy wheels are now finished in Gold. Other than this no other major changes are seen here on the car. At the rear, Mahindra has finished the XUV700, variant badging, logo and the record in golden colour.
Only Neeraj Chopra and Sumit Antil have received the Javelin edition of Mahindra XUV700 which means it is an exclusive car. Mahindra has offered the top-end AX7 variant with luxury pack in it. The interiors on the XUV700 remain the same as standard. The only difference is that there are gold coloured stitching at places like seats, dashboard that gently remind that it is not your regular XUV700.
Mahindra logo on the steering has also been finished in Gold and the 68.55 meters has been stitched on to the dashboard in golden coloured thread. The Mahindra XUV700 is one of the most feature loaded SUV from the manufacturer. As it comes with luxury pack installed, the car gets premium speaker system from Sony, smart door handles, 360 degree camera and many other features.
The car comes with features like Adaptive cruise control lane keep assist, lane departure warning, automatic emergency braking and so on. It is offered with both petrol and diesel engine options. There is a 2.0 litre turbocharged petrol engine that generates 200 Ps and 380 Nm of peak torque. The diesel version uses a 2.2 litre turbocharged engine that generates 155 Ps and 360 Nm of torque in lower variants and 185 Ps and 420 Nm (manual) and 450 Nm (automatic) of peak torque in higher trims. Both petrol and diesel engines are offered with manual and automatic transmission. Mahindra is offering AWD as an option in the top-end trim.
