Mahindra introduced the second generation Thar in late 2020 and it has been well received amongst customers with more than 75,000 bookings. A few months ago, the company launched the all-new XUV700 that not only acts as a replacement to the XUV500 but covers different segments as well. The midsize SUV is definitely one of the highlighting launches of the calendar year 2021.
It is sold across a wide price range covering different sets of consumers. Retailed across MX, AX3, AX5 and AX7 variants, the Mahindra XUV700 can be had as either a five- or s seven-seater. Based on a monocoque chassis, the XUV700 is powered by a 2.2-litre four-cylinder mHawk diesel and a 2.0-litre four-cylinder mStallion petrol engine.
Both are linked with a six-speed manual or a six-speed torque converter automatic transmission. In the first half of 2022, Mahindra is expected to launch the new generation Scorpio with a host of changes inside and out and it has already been spotted testing a number of times in its production guise.
