The new Mahindra XUV 700 is also rumoured to be called the Alturas, as per recent reports. Once launched, the Mahindra Y400 will be the flagship model from the Indian automotive brand. Here are some exclusive Mahindra XUV 700 spy pics showing the exterior and interior, along with some details you should know.
Being based on the SsangYong Rexton, the new Mahindra XUV 700 features a global design language, with some details seen on the existing models from the brand. This includes the vertical-slat grille. The XUV 700 shown here does not have this particular grille design, but will eventually have it when it meets production.
The recently-shot Mahindra XUV 700 spy pics also show the tall design silhouette and the 18-inch five-spoke alloy wheels. Other details include the subtle chrome elements at the front and the projector headlamps with LED DRLs.
At the rear, the new Mahindra XUV 700 gets a small spoiler at the top while the strong shoulder line adds to the presence of the SUV. The bumpers have both chrome and fibre garnishes. The tailgate is power-operated and the third-row seats can be folded for more boot space.
The first-time Mahindra XUV 700 spy pics of the interior show a neatly-laid-down dashboard, complete with a large 9.2-inch touchscreen infotainment system which supports both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The logo on the steering wheel has been covered, but you can make out that it is Mahindra's.
However, the most interesting thing in the Mahindra XUV 700 spy pics, showing the interiors, is the automatic transmission. The new XUV 700 or the Y400 or even the Alturas will come with a seven-speed automatic transmission, while a six-speed manual is also expected to be on offer.
The Mahindra XUV 700 is powered by a 2.2-litre four-cylinder diesel engine which makes 184bhp and 420Nm of torque. It will be available in both two-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive formats. A Mahindra XUV 700 petrol variant with a 2.0-litre engine might be introduced in the future.
