Mahindra XUV700 is the top of the line AX7 – L suffix most likely for the variants that will be sold as 7 seaters
Mahindra launched the first generation XUV500 in September 2011 at a starting price of Rs 10.8 lakh. In August 2021, they launched the XUV700 at an initial price of Rs 11.99 lakh. All prices are ex-sh. The XUV700 is the next generation of the XUV500. Despite being a new generation SUV that was launched 10 years after its first generation, the price difference between the 2 generations of XUV is not even 1.2 lakh.
The XUV was an instant hit at that time. The same is expected to happen with the new generation XUV700, and the price has made sure of that. Though the official bookings have not started, select dealers have started accepting bookings for the XUV700 unofficially. Mahindra is yet to announce the commencement of bookings for the XUV700.

Mahindra has launched the XUV700 in two trims of MX and AX. The latter is further divided into variants of AX3, AX5 and AX7. All variants are expected to be offered as 5 seater and 7 seater.
