Mahindra 7 Seater XUV700 To Be More Powerful than Alcazar
Upcoming 7 Seater XUV700 To Be More Powerful than Alcazar, Safari & Hector Plus - Engine Specification Comparison
Mahindra may have taken its own sweet time but it seems the wait has been worth it with all the details now coming in regarding its engines. It has been clear that Mahindra will equip the XUV700 with two engines from its brand new ‘mStallion’ and mHawk engine family. This new engine family has made its debut in the Thar with the 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine and the 2.2-litre turbo diesel.
The 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine in XUV700 is expected to generate a power output of 200 PS, making it the most powerful petrol SUV in its class while the 2.2-litre turbo diesel engine in the new XUV700 is also expected to generate a power output of about 185 PS making it the most powerful diesel SUV.
Currently only the Alcazar has a powerful 2 litre petrol engine with 159 PS while the Hector uses a smaller 1.5 litre petrol engine with a lesser output of 143 PS. The 200 PS output from the petrol engine of XUV700 means that the XUV700 beats other SUVs easily in the power race. In terms of diesel SUV too, the heavily updated 2.2l diesel engine of XUV700 making 185 PS is more than the 170 PS seen in the Safari and the Hector Plus while the Alcazar has significantly less power output of 115 PS tuned more for fuel economy. A manual gearbox is standard in XUV700 while a torque converter automatic would be optional with both being a 6-speed one.
We expect drive modes and paddle shifters too. Mahindra is clearly betting big and giving the XUV700 a lot of features since it would be its flagship SUV with a room for a new 5 seater XUV500 below it. The new XUV700 will be the most powerful vehicle in its segment upon launch. Infact the XUV700 will be even more powerful than the Ford Endeavour with its 2.0-litre turbocharged diesel engine generating 170 PS of power. The 2021 XUV700 is coming soon with launch expected in September with prices starting at 17 lakhs and it seems to be worth the wait, that's for sure!
