Mahindra XUV700: Full model lineup prices revealed, bookings to open on October 7
Mahindra unveiled the XUV700 last month and we were very impressed with how the SUV rivalling the Tata Safari, MG Hector and the Hyundai Alcazar drove – with us even calling it a “game changer” for Mahindra. While the company had only announced the launch prices for select variants of the XUV when we drove it, Mahindra has now revealed the pricing for all variants in the XUV700 lineup, with bookings starting from October 7.
