The infotainment system on XUV700 gets Android Auto and Mirror link while Apple CarPlay is expected to be introduced later with a software update. This system also gets onboard navigation along with high-end music system for audio lovers. The controls for AC are placed below it and the company might give dual-zone climate control.
