There have been speculations of Mahindra working on a larger-than-XUV 500 model to compete against likes of Toyota Fortuner. Expected to be called the XUV 700, the upcoming Mahindra SUV will be inspired from 2018 Ssangyong Rexton.
With this new SUV, Mahindra will enter into the premium SUV market. We can expect the XUV 700 to launch in 2018 with prices starting at around Rs. 22 lakh.
Supporting the 2018 Mahindra XUV 700 is a new body-on-frame chassis that is taken from Ssangyong. The traditional construction should enhance the ruggedness of the upcoming SUV. From the images it is clear that the new SUV has borrowed a lot from the design study. Design elements like flared wheel arches and a bold shoulder-line give this SUV a really powerful look. It is expected to have a long wheelbase of 2,865 mm, which means better legspace. The upcoming SUV has many advanced safety and connectivity features. It will be powered by a 2.2-litre, 4-cylinder, Turbo Diesle engine that is likely to come mated to 6-speed Manual and 7-speed Automatic transmissions.
