Re: Mahindra XUV700 Review

Can the Mahindra XUV7OO's AX5 variant get successfully fitted with the OEM AX7 reverse camera unit?
The answer is a triumphant and resounding Y-E-S!

Re: Mahindra XUV700 Review

Mahindra has silently slashed the ex-showroom prices of select (AX5 & AX7) variants in the XUV7OO lineup to the tune of 6,000 rupees.

For example, the AX5 diesel MT 7-seater, which I bought for Rs 17,84,148 ex-showroom in April 2022, is now priced at Rs 17,78,148, ex-showroom.

Currently listed prices on the official 7OO website (all ex-showroom) -


Petrol MT:-

MX - Rs. 13,18,162 (same as old)
AX3 5S - Rs. 15,27,531 (same as old)
*AX5 5S - Rs. 16,49,247 (slash of 6,000)
*AX5 7S - Rs. 17,12,938 (slash of 6,000)
*AX7 - Rs. 19,14,515 (slash of 6,000)

Petrol AT:-

AX3 5S - Rs. 16,84,160 (same as old)
*AX5 5S - Rs. 18,23,417 (slash of 6,000)
*AX7 - Rs. 20,88,849 (slash of 6,000)
AX7L - Rs. 22,75,415 (same as old)


Diesel MT:-

MX - Rs. 13,69,543 (same as old)
AX3 5S - Rs. 15,79,829 (same as old)
AX3 7S - Rs. 16,53,052 (same as old)
*AX5 5S - Rs. 17,14,456 (slash of 6,000)
*AX5 7S - Rs. 17,78,148 (slash of 6,000)
*AX7 7S - Rs. 19,79,724 (slash of 6,000)
AX7L - Rs. 21,66,291 (same as old)

Diesel AT:-

AX3 5S - Rs. 17,58,023 (same as old)
*AX5 5S - Rs. 18,86,080 (slash of 6,000)
*AX5 7S - Rs. 19,49,680 (slash of 6,000)
*AX7 - Rs. 21,52,140 (slash of 6,000)
*AX7 AWD - Rs. 22,92,199 (slash of 6,000)
AX7L - Rs. 23,40,715 (same as old)
AX7L AWD - Rs. 24,58,086 (same as old)


(* = variants with slashed ex-showroom prices)

Pretty sure this is related to the rear sequential indicator being discontinued for all AX5/AX7 models. Pretty surprising a manufacturer actually reducing prices for deleting features.

The SA told me that this is due to the deletion of sequential indicators

Re: Mahindra XUV700 Review

After a series of twists and turns, I am getting my XUV 700 AX7L D AT next week

Can somebody help me with the below questions?

1. Despite the variant being AX7 L, it still came without rear sequential indicators. Should I press for the replacement in writing? Anybody who has recently taken the delivery can help with this.

2. I am only looking for some minimal accessories like Screengaurd, SD card, Pedal Cover, Scuff plates etc. Any suggestions for some other useful accessories? How good are Mahindra's 3D mats? how good is the 7D compared to the 3D ones?

3. How good is the side step? I may need one but will add it after taking the delivery. I am worried if it will stick out of the body, any views on this?

4. The car will be used as a 5-seater most of the time. How good is the 5-seater's boot mat with the last row folded?

Do suggest if I am missing any and anything I should look out for.

What will happen to customers who had booked initially and had price protection, but later on delivered the car without the rear sequential light ? I have read in the forums that they are being offered a refund / adjustment. Personally, I do not subscribe to this action of M&M - this is a breach of contract between the two parties as well as a breach of trust.

I know that none of the customers would challenge M&M in a consumer court, but this generates a dissatisfied customer, right from the beginning. How much would it have cost to M&M to provide this facility to a handful of cutomers ?

Not sure if you actually read the terms but legally speaking Mahindra (or any manufacturer for that matter) reserves right to delete features without any prior intimation or liability. Just check the fine print at end of brochure.

Assuming even 50,000 of the 1L+ bookings are AX5/AX7, then thats 30cr, add additional cost of labour to fit those and it adds up.

That being said, I'm sure Mahindra isn't deleting this to save costs, there must be genuine component shortage and vendors might be unable to produce the required quantities.

Re: Mahindra XUV700 Review

Dear All,

Has anyone gone through the cancellation process of XUV700? I have cancelled my booking at AMPL, Thoraipakkam by sending an email, almost 2 weeks back, along with the details and a cancelled cheque photo/scanned copy as mentioned by the sales executive there. However i havent heard anything from them yet, when i followed up with my sales executive, he mentioned that he has informed accounts department but no further updates are provided. Wanted to check if

1. Anyone else has gone through this process and roughly how long does it take to get the refund?

2. I see that there is a "Cancel" option online in My booking section of Mahindra website, can we use that instead of sending emails to dealer?

Thanks,
Kiran

How did you book your car - online OR through dealership? & Are you purchasing any other car from Mahindra instead of XUV7OO?

If booked online and not buying another Mahindra vehicle, you can cancel online and you will get the money into the same account (from booking) in approximately a week after deducting 10%. If you are staying with another Mahindra car, you can negotiate with dealer to waive-off/adjust the 10% cancellation charges.

Sorry for not providing more details, they are given below:

1. I booked at dealer showroom "Automotive Manufacturers Pvt Ltd", Thoraipakkam in Chennai. Hence wanted to check if I can cancel "online" even though I booked in Showroom.
2. I cancelled XUV700 booking because I picked up a pre-owned 2017 Toyota Innova Crysta 2.8Z recently.
3. I had booked AX7L Petrol AT in Red Rage color. There were 11 bookings ahead of me with same parameters and waiting period was adding time and cost, hence chose to go pre-owned route.

1. Rear Sequential Lights will be supplied later on, since you have booked the L variant.

2. Do not go for the M&M mat. It is better to purchase from outside at almost half the price.

3. Side steps can be fitted from M&M because the non-OEM ones are fitted slightly lower and compromises on the GC by a very small margin.

4. No idea.

Yeah, I know and I have read that. They always frame things to suit their purpose.

I was not talking about the whole lot but about 50K bookings who had price protection. Out of these, people who got delivery in the initial four or five months already got this feature. The population would be much lesser than your calculation.

Inspite of component shortage LED sequential light is being offered in the Z8 model of ScorpioN, so why not on the AX7 model of XUV700. If it was offered only on the L model of ScorpioN, I would have somehow understood that M&M wants to keep this as an exclusive feature for the L variants only.

You are correct! Got delivery two weeks ago and dealer refunded 6000 to me as sequential indicators were no longer available.

Re: Mahindra XUV700 Review

Mahindra XUV700 Facelift is expected to be launched in India in the coming months or in early 2023 with minor changes

The interior could gain some new technologies and features and the testing could be done to comply with the more stringent emission standards that are about to be implemented in India in the near future.

Component shortage doesn't necessarily mean it applies to the entire category (in this case sequential indicators). It also means a vendor is unable to produce the required quantities at the required spec. Scorpio-N has a completely different design and possibly a different vendor altogether. We also don't know how many Z8 variants Mahindra expects to sell vs the AX7.

Without knowing the exact situation and numbers it's hard to tell. It's easy to blame automakers these days but production at scale is really hard and has countless factors that end users simply do not understand.
