This is not normal at all, ESP in my car(not XUV) rarely gets in the way of driving, only time I ever felt it kicking in was when I floored the throttle on pure gravel road, have done 50k km so far.

Too much intrusion is actually dangerous as it might get in the way during emergency situations. Do have it checked with Mahindra.

How do I keep my XUV700 AXL from getting unlocked (automatically) , every time I turn off ignition?
I have searched for the solution to this in the entire the manual and didn't find a clue.

This 'feature' raise a potential safety issues . If I turn off ignition at traffic lights , it allows the car to be opened from outside . Thus allowing access to the luggage/kids on the rear seats to anyone on the signal ?
But why do you want to turn off the ignition? You can instead use the micro-hybrid start/stop function

Ironically the micro hybrid function is only available in MT and not AT. I guess the function was not compatible with AT gearbox

Re: Mahindra XUV700 Review

we got home XUV700 MX Petrol in the first week of April. I love the bang for buck spent on this car. Heres a micro review below:

Lets talk about the mileage first:
I keep track of petrol and odo readings for all my vehicles on a google spreadsheet, so the reading are quite accurate. I use tank full to tank full method and have consistently got exactly same mileage figure for the five tank fulls that I have done till date. SUmmary below:
Tank full 1: start 75km
Tank full 2: 575km, 46.14 litre, 10.84kmpl
Tank full 3: 1050km, 44.47 litre, 10.68kmpl
Tank full 4: 1575km, 47.84 litre, 10.97kmpl
Tank full 5: 2101km, 50.22 litre, 10.47kmpl
Overall: 10.74kmpl (Total distance/petrol litres)
My daily commute of 110 km is 33% expressway at constant 100kmph, 40% low trafic roads with speeds 40-80kmph, balance 33% in narrow roads with intermittent traffic and speed ranging from 0- 40 kmph

The gear lever occasionally gives hard vibrations while shifting as others have mentioned.

The acceleration is very sweet, especially compared to the automatic (Diesel) Tata harrier that I had bought along with this car.

The whole package is quite good but the things that I miss most are apple car play & navigation. I would be instaling alloy wheels in a week or so. Already installed rear view camera, side step, rear guard, scuff plate logo light from the showroom. The rear camera shows grainy video on the screen which is a limitation of either camera or display resolution. Also, the reverse navigation lines do not move with the streeing turn and keep straight. Other accessories are good. I highly recommend buying the car cover from mahindra as it has a perfect fitting. I also got 7D mats from elsewhere.

Currently, I am getting TPU paint protection film done on the car. I got that done on my Harrier last month and feel that is a good investment for preserving the paint.

Thats all for now, hopefully, I will find time to write a detailed review in the near future.

You can enable child lock for rear doors. That is how I keep it while my kids occupy 2nd row seats.

Child lock will only prevent the door to be opened from the inside, it can still be opened from outside.

Re: Mahindra XUV700 Review

Got this error code, twice in the last two weeks. The manual says that I should take the car to the nearest service centre. But as soon as I restart the vehicle, the error goes away. Any suggestions? Has anyone else faced this issue?

They are barely able to deliver half that number.

Meanwhile Hyundai, Kia and Tata are able to launch a new model and churns out > 10K per month without any problem from day 1.

Dealers have collected around 1.7 lakh units since launch and the current order backlog stands at around 78,000 units.

- Sales of the XUV700 are averaging around 3,800 units a month and are on a steady rise.

- MX Petrol has least waiting period of three months and AX7 Diesel has maximum waiting period of a year.

1.7L must be the number of bookings and not actual units received. Mahindra is barely hitting 5000 units a month, 1.7L units is impossible.

The article also mentions AX7L having a wait period of 8-10 months, which is again inaccurate. Dealerships themselves have LCDs displaying wait times stretching to almost 2 years in their showrooms.

Harrier + Safari combined sales are not even 5000.

Re: Mahindra XUV700 Review

Had a test drive and made a booking for Petrol AT AX5, 5 seater. Has been only a couple of days and after contemplation and a revisit of the features, thinking about switching to AX7 Petrol AT. Petrol engine because of the low running of the vehicle. AX7 because of 18 inches wheels, the feel-good features inside the cabin, and the ADAS.

I am confused about going for the Luxury version or sticking to the AX7 version itslef. If somebody could break it down and help understand if any of the features in the Luxury version is worth the extra premium of 2.2 Lakhs almost?!

As I understand telescopic steering would be a great addition but not something that cannot be managed without. The 360-degree camera I have heard from the Sales Executive comes as an accessory if somebody could confirm that would be great., also the price for the same if that info is available. So, all in all, seems like the luxury variant at least in the petrol variant looks like an overkill. If somebody could confirm/dispel that, would help me speed up my decision making
