No, the L pack is available only in the AX7 trim, that too only for AT. And I don't think these features can be added aftermarket either.

Surely not 3Kmpl drop, as I enquired with my Service Advisor from Sireesh Auto couple of weeks back, he said it is hardly 0.5kmpl to 1kmpl.

Thanks for the updated info. AWD on demand is great. I have had only one AWD, that too long time back and it had sensors to do the shifting.

Anybody looking at AWD's need to be aware of some drop in FE, tires getting worn out faster than FWD's & also somewhat increased maintenance cost.

Agree, FE drop max. would be 1 Kmpl.

Not sure about the other features but 360 camera is readily available as an after market accessory these days. Moreover one of my friend who is in Mahindra Chennai plant pointed out that some of the L features like 12 speaker system and 360 camera could be made available as official accesory sometime later in FY22.

Re: Mahindra XUV700 Review

Slightly off topic here and apologies in advance. What is the expected fuel efficiency for the diesel variant? I hear petrol is in the range of 5 to 8 kmpl. Still weighing my options to go with diesel or petrol. Also there is this big worry of DPF related issues. Does XUV700 has a manual regeneration facility like Crysta or Fortuner?

Re: Mahindra XUV700 Review

Not sure if this was asked before, but I am noticing a big jump in prices for the 5 vs 7 seaters. Does anyone have more idea as to what additional features will be offered along with those 3rd row seats ? 50k+ increase in OTR just for 2 extra child seats seems to steep to me.

Mahindra is doing a KIA here. Lot of Engine and Variant options. This one is going to be a run away success!

A very important factor most seem be overlooking is that as per reports on our forum (thanks to knowledgeable members) the Harrier/Safari has not been crash tested by GNCAP due to poor internal crash test results - If I recall correctly, there was an issue with the steering column / assembly protruding into the cabin. While these are unverified, the fact that Tata Motors has chosen to not crash test these vehicles is telling.

On the other hand, M&M representatives have been vocal about the safety supposedly offered by the XUV700. Given the THAR's 4* crash test rating at GNCAP, I would safely hazard a guess that the XUV 700 scores, at the very least, a similar rating.

This is, of course, conjecture on my part, but it is not unfounded.

Re: Mahindra XUV700 Review

Finally managed to read the review today. Fantastic review, I must say. Kudos. This looks like the car that everyone is curiously waiting to see including myself. The review is less than two months old and the thread has already run into 100 plus pages. A friend has booked a test drive this weekend, hopefully I get to ride as well.

With the amount of features offered right from the base variant M&M is showing the Indian auto Industry that instead of refining cost-cutting techniques, companies should develop cost-innovation capabilities. They must learn to reengineer their cost structures in novel ways so they can offer customers dramatically more for less and hence now people are willing to pay over 28lacs OTR which is nearly 100% more than the base variant with the same engine.

Thanks !

I had a question about the side-step set. People were saying that this would reduce the ground clearance of the vehicle, which may cause problems in Bangalore especially when it is fully laden.

Does anyone have any information on how much it would reduce the GC by ?

Possible, but it could also be a case of Mahindra listening to the market. I am sure they had planned the AWD L variant and I was expecting them to launch it later, probably after a couple of price hikes, but the fact that they are doing it now is good for me and others who were waiting for a similar variant.
