© Provided by Overdrive Mahindra XUV700 Global NCAP crash test The version tested by Global NCAP was a 5-seater car equipped with two airbags. The test showed that most body parts of adult occupants in the front row were well protected. The bodyshell and footwell area was also seen to have remained stable through the crash and could absorb further impact. Children were secured via ISOFIX mounts and had sufficient head protection. The four-star child safety rating came due to a middle seat lap belt and the marked child restraint systems being incompatible with the car.

2021 Mahindra XUV700 engine and gearbox options

The Mahindra XUV700 will be offered with two engine options, the same 2.2-litre mHawk turbo diesel and the 2.0-litre mStallion turbo-petrol from the Thar. However, the engines have been turned up to become the most powerful engine options in this segment on the top AX variants. The diesel puts out 185PS and makes 420 Nm with the 6-speed manual and 450 Nm with the 6-speed automatic. The petrol motor makes 200PS and 380 Nm paired with both gearboxes. The petrol doesn’t get drive modes, which are reserved for the diesel. There is also an AWD option available and Mahindra claims the XUV700 can do 0 to 60 kmph in under 5s. In the more basic MX spec, the petrol remains unchanged but the diesel is detuned to 155PS and 360 Nm although only manual gearboxes are on offer.
