The Indian car market is one of the most exciting worldwide. It is dominated by mass models such as the Jeep twin Gurkha and the permanent runner Ambassador. But Mahindra has a real showpiece in the portfolio with his XUV 700.
Expensive or even exclusive vehicles are searched for in vain on the streets of Delhi, Chennai or Mumbai, because in the confusing metropolises of the Indian subcontinent, the rattling two and tricycles on the crowded roads stipulate everywhere. All over the cityscape: The gray Mahindra Jeeps, which after more than 50 years replaced the venerable ambassador, which was based on the British Morris Oxford series III, which was set in 1957 until its end of production in 2014.
India’s car market: Many old vehicles
The roundly charming ambassador without great comfort tributes apparently drove in India-private individuals, taxers and even the national politicians. The indestructible ambassador from the Mahindra Jeep was replaced in everyday turbulent street life, which in turn is a rustic descendant of the Willys Jeep CJ-3b.

But Mahindra has more to offer on the increasingly contested home market than just a cheap taxi in the gray dress, in which up to seven people are narrowing down if necessary, because with the XUV 700 the Indian car maker has a real luxury model in his portfolio.

The 4.70 meter long Mahindra XUV 700 can be obtained as a five- or seven-seater, whose comfort and safety equipment can definitely keep up with other world markets. The wheelbase of the large crossovers is 2.75 meters. The inclined customer has the choice for the drive, because the 700 is powered by a two-liter four-cylinder turbo, which does 147 kW / 200 PS / 380 Nm.

Diesel power with all-wheel drive
If you want to be more economical, you can also choose a 2.2-liter Commonrail diesel, which brings either 114 kW / 155 hp or 136 kW / 185 PS / 450 Nm to both drive axes. Somewhat surprisingly, the mid-range SUV is equipped with a manual six-speed gearbox and offers an automatic only at an additional cost. This also applies to equipment details such as ESP and an electrical parking brake, which are only offered optionally. There is only an all -wheel drive for the 185 hp top diesel. The Mahindra XUV 700 thus defeated the highest navigable street in the world on the Mountain Umling La in the Ladakh region.

It is the first vehicle manufactured in India that has reached the passport. The Umling La, located in the southeast Ladakhs, is the highest navigable road in the world with a height of 5880 meters. The global landmark of India is 500 meters higher than the base camp of Mount Everest.

Depending on the equipment variant, there are animated instruments, 18-inch alloy wheels, panorama roof or LED headlights and various driver assistance systems that are intended to justify the price difference between 1.3 and almost 1.9 million Indian rupees, which is equivalent to a spectrum of 15.000 to 22.000 euros corresponds. The highlight inside is not the extensively installed hard plastic, but the continuous instrument display, which runs from the driver to far over the middle of the dashboard. In the MX-Base variant there is a seven-inch display without navigation function, all other AX versions shine with a 10.25-inch display, touch function, standard navigation, app control, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. For the luxury versions of the Mahindra XUV AX7 and AX7L, there are also electrical seats, spacer pomant, 360-degree camera or automatic climate control.
