Mahindra surprised everyone when they launched the all-new XUV700 and announced the prices last year. It is the most technologically advanced SUV from the manufacturer and has a competitive price tag too. After the launch, Mahindra had promised that they’ll be gifting custom made XUV700 SUVs to Gold medalists in the Tokyo Olympics. Both Neeraj Chopra and Sumit Antil had secured gold medal in Javelin throw in the Olympics. Mahindra handed over the keys of the custom made XUV700 to both the Olympians and here we have a video where we have a closer look at the XUV700 of Paralympian Sumit Antil.
The video has been uploaded by The Riders Way on their YouTube channel. Video starts with vlogger explaining why this Mahindra XUV700 is special from the others on the road and even invites Paralympian Sumit Antil in the video. In this video, Sumit Antil and vlogger got out on a drive in the custom made Mahindra XUV700 and the Paralympian shares his experience with the SUV and how his life has changed after winning the medal at the Olympics.
He is very satisfied with the XUV700 and said every time he sits in the car, it makes him feel proud. This is one of a kind SUV as it cannot be bought and only be earned. In terms of driving, he owns the petrol automatic SUV with all the features. He mentions that it has over 100 features and many of them he has not even used yet.
As this is a custom made XUV700, people recognise it on the road and that makes Sumit feel special. He also shares the experience when he took the delivery. He said, Mahindra dealership had organised an event just for the delivery of the car and he went along with his family. Mahindra XUV700 offers a spacious cabin and it looks premium as well.
He then speaks about his career, personal best and the practice sessions. He even talks about his journey to the Tokyo Olympics as well. The Javelin Edition of XUV700 is different from the regular version. There is no change in terms of design but, Mahindra has made cosmetic changes to make it look different or special.
The front grille and the new Mahindra logo on it are now finished in Gold. As this is the top-end model, the SUV gets all LED headlamps, twin LED DRLs and dynamic LED turn indicators. The side profile of the SUV reveals 68.55 badge on the front fender. He threw Javelin 68.55 metres away. The car retains the orignal 18 inch wheels but, it now comes with Gold finished Mahindra logo in the center. Just like at the front, rear also gets Gold finished badges and Mahindra logo.
On the inside, the car gets white coloured leather upholstery with Golden coloured thread stitching. The headrests have embroidery done in golden coloured thread. Mahindra XUV700 is available with both petrol and diesel engine options. The one seen here uses a 2.0 litre turbocharged petrol engine that generates 20 Ps and 380 Nm of peak torque. It is available with manual and automatic transmission options.
