Due to these features, Mahindra XUV700 beats its rivals, know today
Homegrown automaker Mahindra recently launched its new XUV700 in India. This SUV of the company is going to give many great features in its segment. Let us tell you about its 7 such features that make it different.
Mahindra XUV700 is one of the recently launched cars in the Indian market. The mid-size SUV has been introduced to add to the long list of rivals. The XUV700 is primarily offered in competition from the Tata Harrier, Tata Safari, MG Hector, MG Hector Plus, and the Hyundai Alcazar. However, with its attractive price tag, it overlaps a set of compact SUVs including Kia Seltos, Hyundai Creta, Volkswagen Taigun, Skoda Kushak, Nissan Kicks, and MG Astor. Since the Mahindra XUV700 gets a total of 7 seats and is priced around the Toyota Innova Crysta, consumers will often get confused between the two. Still, the Mahindra XUV700 has 7 features that are not available on its 12 rivals.
Smart Door Handles: The Mahindra XUV700 comes with smart door handles, which are flush to the body. While the lower-trim gets manually operated door handles, the higher editions come with motorized units. Later, the door handles come out when the car is unlocked. Well, something similar happened recently on the Aston Martin DBX too.
Integrated Twin-Display Setup: The Mahindra XUV700 has two 10.25-inch displays placed under the same mirror. It is quite similar to the layout seen in the new model from Mercedes-Benz. The 10.25-inch display serves as the instrument console and infotainment unit. The latter is touch-enabled and comes with support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
12-Speaker Sony Sound System: All the rivals of Mahindra XUV700 are equipped with premium sound systems, but most of them have only 7 speakers. However, the XUV700 comes with 12-speaker units from Sony.
Driver Drowsiness Detection: Another segment-first feature in the Mahindra XUV700 is driver drowsiness detection. It senses if the driver is tired and is not fully attentive while driving the car. If it does, the system alerts the driver about the same.
Auto-Booster Headlamps: The Auto-Booster headlamp feature of the XUV700 is designed to come in handy when driving at speeds above 80 kmph in the dark. The system automatically increases the intensity of the headlights. As claimed by the carmaker, this technology increases the illumination of the high-beam by about 1.6 times.
Highest-in-Segment Power Output: The XUV700 gets two engine options - 2.0L turbo-petrol and 2.2L turbo-diesel engine. Both these engines develop the highest power figures in this segment. The 2.0L mStallion turbo-petrol unit delivers a rated power output of 197 Hp, while the turbocharged oil burner produces 182 Hp.
Availability of AWD: All rivals of Mahindra XUV700 including Tata Safari come with an FWD layout. Mahindra is offering an AWD layout on the XUV700 to keep the buyers interested. But it is available exclusively with a diesel-automatic configuration.
