Mahindra XUV700 will likely go on sale around this festive season and it will be offered with the most powerful petrol and diesel engines in its segment

Mahindra & Mahindra commenced the teaser campaign for the XUV700 already and is expected to make its world premiere later this month before going on sale around October 2021. The brand has already teased a number of notable features including an overspeeding safety tech, booster headlamps, and panoramic sunroof.

The XUV700 will more likely make a strong impact in the premium SUV space and it will be positioned above the XUV500 in the domestic lineup. It is part of a string of new launches Mahindra has planned until 2026 as the SUV portfolio will be widened as new segments will be exploited and consolidated in the price brackets the company already presents in.

The Mahindra XUV700 is definitely an integral piece in the puzzle and it will be available with six- and seven-seater layouts. The three-row SUV will sit on an updated monocoque chassis and is expected to have bigger dimensions compared to the existing XUV500. The panoramic sunroof teased is claimed to be the largest in its segment.
