This lineup is so confusing. They might think about adding questions on the lineup in competitive exams like UPSC.

At least they should have named it properly, like AX7 "Value" instead of calling it "smart". Who would want to be the smart person to choose just those 3 features over ADAS, ESP and more? I would walk away just for not getting ESP on a vehicle priced at 25 lakhs +.

Re: Mahindra XUV700 Review

Don't think anyone would be OK with so many features removed and cost getting reduced by 20k only just to get the vehicle early. ADAS was one of the features which make this vehicle stand apart from the crowd.ESP, telescoping steering are basic features which are available in cars half the price of this.

Now Safari looks more of a feature loaded vehicle than this.

They should launch AX5L with added features, My wish list for that is -

1) R18 inch Alloy.
2) Leatherette seat covers.
3) Rear armrest for 5 seater with 60:40 split.
4) Rear view camera.

I have a AX5 and would second this. Other features which could be added to AX5: (1) Motorized door handles (2) Climate control

Regarding the rear seat/armrest issue, I am exploring if there is a way to get the 7 seater version second row bench as a part from Mahindra and install it, as it would bring both these features + recline.

Re: Mahindra XUV700 Review

I think AX7 S must be seen as another round of price increase from Mahindra. When comparing with AX7 L at original prices this will never make sense, letting go most important features for a marginal price reduction. However, for new bookings or where delivery dates are so far that people might want to cancel, this option may make sense if early delivery is ensured

It will be interesting to see if current promised delivery dates are pushed further due to AX7 S. This can become a scheme to officially jump the queue by paying premium directly to Mahindra.

Re: Mahindra XUV700 Review

Hi folks,

I had booked XUV700 AX7L D AT on 7/Oct thru dealer within 1st 30 mins and now I have the delivery date as Aug-2022. Initially, I had thought that delivery will be during Diwali but yet was OK with Jan-Feb. Also, I felt that AX7L was pricey for what it was offering.
Now I am cancelling my booking and have sent an email to the dealer.
Cheers!

Re: Mahindra XUV700 Review

Two of my cousins had booked the AX7L Petrol AT, in Pune and Ahmedabad respectively; both on 7th October online. Delivery date for Pune was given as September '22 and for Ahmedabad as October '22. Both of them are opting for cancellation.

Sheer coincidence or what, I got a call from the dealer today mentioning that my month of delivery is Jan 2023. So no more doubts now. Thanks MnM for making my decision easier. I am out of this crap

I guess the variant switch will be an option, and not slapped on. If it's a mandatory thing, well, that's the end of a luv story....
I had a word with my sales guy, he confirmed that the new smart pack is being offered now, but its only for the people who had opted for the L Pack.
The waiting time may reduce by upto 6 months if one opts for the Smart pack.

Considering the only minor price reduction, it basically seems like Mahindra is charging a upfront premium for early delivery

Hi Nasir bro,

Congrats on your AX5. Hope the SUV is living up to the promise? I just wanted to ask what speakers have they installed in this variant and how good is the audio quality. Also I know there are dummy slots in the centre of the dash and also on the left side of the boot. Can the audio system be upgraded with a center channel and a subwoofer using those slots? Can you throw some light on that?

Re: Mahindra XUV700 Review

The *discount* for downgrading to AX7S variant is 80k. Still not worth it IMO.

This is becoming comical. They couldve very well waited for the supplies to get back to normal and then launched the car

Re: Mahindra XUV700 Review

I was in the market today to buy some veggies and some good old aunty was jostling for a "Nimbu Mirchi Dhaniya" deal with the baniya. Overhearing the gossip it reminded me of this new XUV 700 AX 7 Smart (Read 'CID: Customer is Dumb') variant. I guess the M&M automotive team has reduced their product's perceived value to the the Aunty's Nimbu Mirch & Dhaniya status. One more example of the goof up of apocalyptic proportion by the M&M management.
