The video is very interesting for its highlighting (in red) of the rear suspension (2:09 min. and 4:54 min respectively, into the video)! From what I could see, it almost looked like an IRS, with slim articulated half-shafts projecting out of of the differential housing.

Maybe I am mistaken, but this portion of the video seems to create the possibility of a misinterpretation by the viewer.

On the other hand, if M&M are really providing IRS in the Y400 Rexton, it would be - at this price point - a segment first, for a body-on-chassis SUV.

Spotted this on 11th July, was wondering which car it was until i stumbled upon this post. Was able to follow the guy for more than 3kms on the Hiriyur stretch.

Impressions:

Amazing stance, headlights give the feel of the GL/ML class, with the integrated DRL indicators
Extensive road testing was being done, tad too dangerously considering the hard braking the driver was doing on the highway. At a rumble strip stretch, could hear the tyre screeching, might be testing brake responsiveness without ABS (noob idea, done pounce on me if silly )


PS: Have a couple of more pics and videos, will be posting that as soon as i get some time!!!

Mahindra's flagship SUV spied in all its glory! Expect a late 2018 launch.

Quote:
Mahindra XUV700 will be the very best where safety and luxury are concerned. Its interiors are leather clad with plenty of driver and passenger comforts and safety features. It gets electrically adjustable seats in the front, a 9.2” touchscreen infotainment system and a 10.1” screen for passengers at the rear. Dual zone automatic climate control and ambient lighting will also be among its outstanding features while safety features will include 7 airbags, ABS, EBD, traction control, hill hold assist among others.

Inspired by SSangYong's SUV, Mahindra's flagship SUV (XUV7OO ?) launching in Nov. 2018.

This one might appeal well to the traditional Indian taste of big and butch SUVs - just see the way it makes that Mobilio look like a hatchback!

Which is the SUV following it in the second pic though?

Are they doing a load test or what ? The rear seems so compressed.The rear wheel arch is so close to the tyre in the first pic.

It's an Audi Q3. It might not be a part of the fleet, as I couldn't see any reason for it being used for any sort of benchmarking against the upcoming Mahindra.

Besides launching a range of new models, the home-grown carmaker also aims to attract a new segment of customers by redesigning its existing outlets with a special Prime Zone. The newly-designed Mahindra Prime Zone will display the premium models including the upcoming Marazzo 7-seater MPV, S201 compact SUV and Rexton 7-seater SUV (XUV 700).
Quote:
Vejay Ram Nakra, Chief of Marketing & Sales (Automotive Division), Mahindra & Mahindra, said, “I think every brand will have its own approach (to selling premium products). The idea is to always give a differentiated experience to customers who are buying a more expensive product. Hence, our approach has been that instead of going out and setting up a very heavy-asset, high-capex and high-revenue-expense model for dealers, we want to keep it light. And, hence, we thought we’ll carve out space in the existing showrooms”.
https://www.carblogindia.com/mahindra-xuv-700-suv/

Quote:
this one is going to be feature-loaded. For lighting, it gets LED headlamps with LED DRLs and LED Rear lights. In the interiors, it gets Electric seats, a 9.2-inch touchscreen infotainment along with 10.1-inch screens for rear passengers, ambient lighting, cruise control, steering mounted audio controls and more.

For safety, it gets ABS with EBD, 9 airbags, Hill Descent Control, Electronic Stability Control, Advanced Emergency Braking and Active Roll-Over protection. More premium features can be expected on this upcoming Mahindra XUV 700 SUV.
Quote:
Overall at this price rank, the specs, and feature make it compete with the Fortuner and Endeavour.The Mahindra XUV 700 SUV at this expected price will be around Rs 4 Lakhs cheaper than the other two SUVs.
Iam sure this is going to pull many buyers looking for an upgrade from XUV. This will easily overtake even double or triple the numbers of ENDY. Looking forward for the launch.

And the reliable Isuzu MU-X at that price, given a choice, I would buy a Japanese unless the new Rexton comes as a CBU. But then again, I am not sure how well Mahindra technicians would be trained to handle the Rexton.

The images are from Mahindra AGM today, posted by CNBC TV18 and not by Gaadiwaadi.

The car was showcased to dealers and vendors.

Here is the real source

The Rexton has been reviewed by Autoexpresa UK & they are pleased with the progress the Korean company & the product had made especially in the interior fit & finish.
The ride remains the only hiccup in the overall package, which is pardonable considering the ladder frame architecture of the SUV.

Mahindra, you have done a good job

Mahindra 's flagship model spied in 7-Speed AT configuration and 9.2-inch touchscreen to come in higher variants.

I wish Mahindra takes a bold step and comes out this copycat grille fixation. All that it ends up doing is certifying a superior aspirational value for Jeep. Sad, Mahindra as it is is'nt too far behind. The way the Mahindra badge is put up in this version simply doesn't gel with the grille design, yet they seem to imagine that they can't do without it. Wonder if they misread their license terms as a compulsory obligation to use the design.
