The Mahindra XUV700 has received a lot of attention recently, and rightfully so, there are a lot of people who are thrilled about the next Mahindra SUV. The Mahindra XUV700 reservations started today, and according to the business, the first batch of 25,000 units was ordered in 57 minutes.

Mahindra had previously said at the introduction that the promotional rates offered would only be valid for the first 25,000 orders, and now we see a price increase for the XUV700. So the MX model of the XUV700 now starts at Rs 12.49 lakh (up from 11.99 lakh previously), a Rs 50,000 increase. The diesel now begins at 12.99 lakh rupees. Overall, there has been a Rs 50,000 rise in price across all versions.
The 2018 Mahindra XUV700 is available in two primary trim levels: MX and AX, with the former exclusively available with a manual transmission. The AX series is divided into three models: AX3, AX5, and AX7. All three include petrol and diesel engine options, as well as manual and automatic gearbox options.
The new Mahindra XUV700 is available with both petrol and diesel engines. The petrol engine is a 2.0-litre mStallion turbocharged petrol engine that produces 197 bhp and 380 Nm of torque. The engine is paired with either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic torque converter transmission.
The diesel models receive a 2.2-litre, four-cylinder mHawk oil burner with three tuning options. The basic MX version is designed to produce 153 horsepower and 360 Nm and comes standard with a 6-speed manual transmission. It produces 182 bhp in the AX versions, and although the 6-speed manual produces 420 Nm of peak torque, the 6-speed automatic torque converter produces 450 Nm.
