2023 Mahindra XUV700 review
Introducing Australia's newest and cheapest seven-seat SUV.
What we love
- Ride and build quality much better than what the price tag suggests
- Good inclusion of standard equipment and features
- Nice lazy torque available from the turbocharged four-pot
What we don’t
- Missing an ANCAP crash rating, and a couple of safety acronyms
- Base spec misses out on some important features
- Even with electric seat adjustment, ergonomics don't feel perfect
2023 Mahindra XUV700
Mahindra is looking to emerge from its niche positioning in Australia – offering value-packed vehicles for regional and rural markets – and take on the mainstream.
And it doesn't get more mainstream than a medium-sized SUV. Effectively taking over from the aged and inadequate XUV500, this 2023 Mahindra XUV700 is an all-new seven-seat offering from the Indian carmaker.
As the brand is busy expanding its footprint of dealerships in major metropolitan areas, and not long after the arrival of the Scorpio four-wheel drive, the XUV700 is Mahindra's best shot yet of significantly growing its sales volume in Australia.
It's available for sale now, and Drive.com.au has already been behind the wheel. Here's our take on its newest medium-sized SUV for Australia, which also works out to be the cheapest seven-seater on the market.
How much does the Mahindra XUV700 cost in Australia?
The 2023 Mahindra XUV700 model range is simple and to the point. Both model grades on offer are petrol-powered and front-wheel drive with seven seats, and a similar range of equipment on offer.
And like the Scorpio, both models get a sharp drive-away price as an introductory offer. Mahindra representatives couldn't be drawn into saying how long this offer would be and what might replace it. It will depend mostly on how successful the XUV700 is initially.
The range starts with an AX7 , which costs $36,990 drive-away . This gets twin 10.25-inch screens, automatic LED headlights and daytime running lights, keyless entry with push-button start, synthetic leather interior trimming (with white your only initial choice of colour), six-way power adjustment for the driver's seat, six-speaker sound system, dual-zone climate control, rear-view camera and a good array of safety equipment. It also gets a panoramic sunroof, tyre pressure monitoring and rain-sensing windscreen wipers.
It's certainly not a stripped-out model, then, and the AX7L throws in a good range of gear for the $3000 of extra spend at $39,990 drive-away : wireless phone charging, 12-speaker Sony-branded sound system, stop-and-go functionality for the adaptive cruise-control system, 360-degree camera and blind-spot camera functionality, driver's knee airbag, electronic doorhandles and park brake, and an illuminated vanity mirror.
Strangely, and I think it's the first time I have seen this, but reach adjustment for the steering column is restricted only to the top AX7L model. The AX7 only gets tilt adjustment.
How much space does the Mahindra XUV700 have inside?
Step inside the XUV700 in either trim level and you'll find it hard not to be impressed in terms of what you get for the asking price. White leather (which isn't real leather) is your only choice, which could be confronting for hardcore family use. However, vinyl-based materials like this tend to be quite hardy over the long term, and should wipe down reasonably well after being tarnished by kids.
At least the colour lends a nice, light airiness to the cabin. Which, by the way, has a solid sense of build quality. There are no rattles or creaks to contend with, and heavy grabs and prods by myself didn't expose anything untoward.
The worst side of this impressive cabin comes from the ergonomics side of things. It doesn't feel as intrinsically good as others in this regard, despite the inclusion of electric driver's seat adjustment with memory functionality. The amounts of adjustment available aren't huge, and I couldn't dial myself in behind the wheel as well as I would like. I also noticed that the front passenger seat seems to be mounted in an unusually high position, putting one's forehead close to the roof lining.
The design, however, is worlds apart from the old XUV500, and puts it right amongst the fight of other new medium SUVs in the segment. Twin screens sit proudly atop the dashboard surrounded by soft-touch materials and topped off with a cap.
Dual-zone climate controls sit further down, separate and traditional in their design. There are some additional control buttons underneath, along with a storage cubby and wireless charging pad (for the AX7L only). The large dial near the gearshifter acts as a volume dial, and the number of cupholders depends on the spec level. There are two in the more expensive AX7L, while a manual handbrake in the lower-grade model robs you of one.
Power outlets include twin USB-A points, but we couldn't find any 12V outlet up front.
The second row is plenty spacious, with a high seating position that affords good levels of visibility. Legroom and headroom are both well covered, despite the inclusion of a panoramic sunroof that can sometimes eat into headspace. There are air vents in the back, as well as a single USB-C power outlet and tiny storage cubby.
The XUV700 feels to be fairly wide, which is a good sign for growing families. We weren't able to fit any car seats this time around, but we will investigate this more closely in future reviews. There are ISOFIX points on the outboard seats in the second row and top tether points for all three seats.
The second row doesn't slide at all, but the third row is decent enough for occasional usage. Adults do run out of headroom and their knees will be pushing into the second-row seat back, but the seats are comfortable and the floor is low enough for a decent knee position. There are cupholders and air vents in the back, as well as a 12V power outlet. Kids would be happy enough in the back here, and parents will be glad to know that curtain airbags extend to cover the rearmost row.
The boot, which is lacking any official litreage figures from Mahindra, is good. Don't forget the XUV700 is relatively large for a medium-sized SUV, and the folding-flat third row makes for a big amount of space when loaded up. There are some gaps in the floor, however, so if your bag of groceries overturns when on the move, you might lose a mandarin or two.
Even in seven-seat mode, you've got enough space for a couple of backpacks or a few bags of groceries.
Does the Mahindra XUV700 have Apple CarPlay and Android Auto?
One 10.25-inch display handles your infotainment needs, with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality included in both specification levels. It's a good system as well, responding well to inputs and an easy-to-navigate operating system.
There's no mention of digital radio or native navigation in this system, which would irk some buyers. However, suburban users who will likely plug their phone in immediately before or after pushing the on button might not give two hoots.
The second display, which is also 10.25 inches in size, is your digital instrument cluster. It's good as well, with a crisp-feeling and nice layout. Steering wheel controls are used to access and adjust a handful of elements here, and we note that adjusting things like lane-departure warning does take a bit of digging to find.
Is the Mahindra XUV700 a safe car?
While the XUV700 gets a five-star Global NCAP safety rating, this isn't to be confused with ANCAP, which is a local testing regime with more stringent testing protocols.
When looked through the ANCAP prism, Global NCAP isn't important, and missing any kind of ANCAP rating needs to be well understood by buyers. Put simply, there are safer options available in this segment.
However, let's give credit where it's due: in comparison to the Scorpio – which is missing key safety technology – this XUV700 is a much better proposition.
It has autonomous emergency braking (with pedestrian detection), lane-departure warning and lane-keep assistance, adaptive cruise control, tyre pressure monitoring and six airbags. This number grows to seven for the AX7L, which gets a driver's knee airbag as well.
AX7L also gets a blind-spot camera function (off the back of the 360-degree camera system), but both specs miss out on blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert.
What about Mahindra XUV700 maintenance costs?
This is an extremely important point for a cost-conscious family SUV, especially in the current climate. However, we don't know all of the answers to this just yet. While Mahindra representatives did promise service costs would be kept as competitive as possible, we don't know those numbers exactly just yet.
We also don't have as much clarity on insurance costs at the moment, because it's such a new model to the Australian market.
Is the Mahindra XUV700 fuel-efficient?
One element that is currently unable to be fully verified is fuel economy. Mahindra claims 8.3 litres per 100 kilometres on the combined cycle, which is on the high side of things, and especially when you’re comparing against hybrids and diesel-powered competitors.
But at least it’s got a decent surge of torque and acceleration available. Better economy will be available from naturally aspirated engines in a similar capacity – often the only choice in a medium-sized SUV anywhere near this price point – but I’d prefer the extra grunt underfoot and pay the penalty in efficiency.
Mahindra’s efficiency claim for urban driving is 10.0L/100km. Once we get one through for a more thorough evaluation, we will be able to further interrogate these numbers.

What is the Mahindra XUV700 like to drive?
The torque available from the XUV700’s 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine is an important factor in it feeling fit for purpose. Just shy of 150kW isn’t too shabby for a family SUV, but the 380Nm kicking in at 1750rpm allows the car to accelerate forward with a relaxed feel, and without needing to change down gears for some useful impetus.
The six-speed automatic gearbox , which is sourced by Aisin and is used in a wide variety of applications, feels mostly smooth and well weighted in terms of decision-making. Our initial drive indicated hints of imperfect shifts from time to time, but we’ll need to spend more time with the vehicle in order to render a final judgment.
Pedal travel is long and not overly responsive, which could sound like a negative. But I find it well weighted and not hair-triggered like you sometimes find in other SUVs, which are perhaps attempting to hide a lack of urgency in the midrange.
Push the pedal right down and you’ve got enough performance there for everyday driving needs. It’s not an engine that seems to relish high-rev work, and it certainly feels happier when allowed to lug along in the midrange.
Perhaps the most pleasing elements of the XUV700 are the good levels of refinement and ride comfort on offer.
Often vehicles at this lower end of the price spectrum, which offer a high level of showroom appeal at a bargain price, aren’t so positive in this regard. And certainly the previous-generation XUV500 wasn’t the most pleasing driving experience.
However, there’s an impressive improvement that comes from a stiffer and lighter monocoque platform, in addition to well-tuned suspension damping. Mahindra told us it put over 540 different iterations of suspension tune into the XUV700 frequency-selective dampers before settling on the final product.
And while the XUV700 doesn’t yet leave a Mercedes-Benz S-Class quaking in its boots, the quality of the ride is just as good as the better examples in the segment, as crowded and competitive as it is.
The steering feel is light and not particularly communicative in terms of what is happening underneath, which reduces the appeal for someone wanting an engaging driving experience. However, the light weighting also adds to an ease of driving feel.
For a suburban-focussed SUV that is destined for a life of scooting around town on errands and commutes, it feel well dialled in.
Should I buy a Mahindra XUV700?
I wouldn't shy away from the Mahindra XUV700 for a few important reasons. Firstly, the interior feels well packaged and executed. It works well as an occasional seven-seater, which will strike the right balance of space and accommodation for many Australian families.
However, the driving experience is something that puts the XUV700 in a strong position, and especially when referenced against that bargain drive-away price.
That's the main element here to convey: it's cheap, but it doesn't feel like it. Instead, there is a feeling of sound engineering and quality execution in the finished product.
While the XUV700 ticks many of the boxes that were missed with the Scorpio, there are still safer options available in the family-focussed medium SUV segment. Missing a five-star ANCAP safety rating, as well as features like rear cross-traffic alert and blind-spot monitoring, puts the XUV700 on the back foot.
However, autonomous emergency braking, six interior airbags and lane-departure warning make it a safer proposition in comparison to many second-hand vehicles that line up against the XUV700 on price.
There's no doubt that as cost of living pressures continue to rise in Australia, new car buyers will be looking to make their dollars go further with their own big purchase. And Mahindra's XUV700 – a watershed offering from the Indian brand – will likely find favour in many family driveways.

Helpful Reviews of XUV700
Well Folks, Here I am writing
Well folks, Here i am writing my first review of 8 months of ownership of xuv700 ax7l at(p), Been a while since i've been contemplating on sharing my thoughts as the whole world was going gung-ho about it, I thought let the dust settle down and then cook up a storm! honestly i've had my shares of challenges with the mahindra setup however so far the journey has been contented.I've done about 6000kms, Yes that's injustice, But then of those its a 50-50 highway+hills/city experience, As have another celerio zxi amt at my disposal to run the daily chores.To start of with the purchase experience, Guess i was one of the lucky ones to get my hands on the first few units dispatched as i managed to get a booking in slot on day 1 of "kaun banega xuv700 owner contest".Cheesy right, But butter smooth is what i can say about the ride quality of the xuv700, The interiors are really plush, With ample underthigh support while driving, Despite being an average 6 footer myself.Had done a few highway runs on nh1 and nh8 with a lone drive to hills beyond corbett and honestly there has been little i could complain of during my ownership tenure so far, Yes the mileage is a bit pinch that comes with the rising fuel prices, But i guess with 2l turbo 200bhp monster that is the least you can expect but overall its a pleasing feel! the cabin is airy and gives super view of sorroundings, With panoramic roof one couldn't ask for more, All in all the look, Feel and comfort are all 5 stars for me.Now coming to the niggles:- 1.A strange sound was observed in the steering, Which was rectified after a part change in the steering column which was creating this issue 2.Car started to stop automatically, Reason told was bad fuel quality, And since the design of the fuel tank was such that it had a dual level filtration it was causing the issue, The result was again rectification of the fuel tank by replacement.3.The suspension sound is something which is having its own free mind, It comes at its own will and goes away, Still not able to troubleshoot that though, Hopefully this all will be taken care off as well.4.Apple car play is still not there.I'm contented as till date all niggles replacements haven't been charged to me, And has been taken care off in warranty, However my pain lies in the fact that after paying through your nose for a premium marketed product after rigororus trials spanning over for 4 years why cant mahindra come up with a product which had no niggles whatsoever.Alas! that's the pain we indians feel despite having the zeal to go for made in india automobile.Mahindra is trying to treat this product in premium category and taking care of such issues reported on priority, However i still think that they are themselves found running after their tails for such issues.Look forward to some more expert support from mahindra to crease out these problems once and for all.Mileage: 7-8kmpl in cityand 10-12kmpl on highways(depends how you floor the gas pedal.
Mahindra has found the perfect balance between affordability, Luxury and performance.They have built a car that can stand up to the rigours of driving in the challenging indian cityscape, Varying quality of highways as well as our often times underdeveloped rural road infrastructure.A decade of manufacturing the xuv500 means the xuv700 comes with a solid legacy.Mahindra has built on this foundation with the new mstallion and mhawk engines -- both are amazing in that they deliver great power & torque and are also very smooth and quiet.The steering is amazingly light and agile -- although the 700 is a big, Hulking suv, It handles like a luxury sedan.The ride quality is great and although the xuv00 may not be as imposing as its younger cousin, The scorpio n, It delivers that perfect combination of luxury and sturdiness.The fit and finish is also up to world standards -- a great achievement by an indian company that should make all indians proud.It's also an absolute headturner, And has a gorgeously big panoramic sunroof that is the best in its class.Even the ax5 variant we bought had more than enough features to make us very happy.Adrenox app connectivity is a killer feature that is not talked up enough by mahindra -- you can get a lot of control and insight into your car through the connected features.There are a ton of features to explore -- my current favourite being the "valet mode" -- which was totally unhyped by the marketing team and came as a pleasant surprise.I think it will take me a month to fully grasp all the customizations available.As of now, I'm extremely happy with this car, And have no hesitation in saying this is the best car currently running on indian roads.

Overall Good Car
I bought the XUV 700 from Modasa in Gujarat. From booking to delivery too just about 13 days. First drive was from Modasa to Delhi. 11 hrs and was a beautiful revelation of sorts this car replaces my Innova. 9 years old which had 1.56 lakh kms on the road pro's. The XUV 700 petrol is unbelievably powerful. Superb driving dynamics super highway manners extremely comfortable to drive. Tech loaded. Feature loaded. Solid and well-built. Something you need to get used to I keep it switched off. At all times. Far far better than the Innova that it replaces con's the suspension was noisy. Mahindra has replaced something and now. It is flawless. Zero sound. Rear seat space is less than what was there in the Innova. The infotainment system needs to be tweaked and sorted. Slight niggles are present, irritating at best. The fuel efficiency of 8 kmpl, at this price range this is an amazing car.
Problems in XUV700
Took delivery of an XUV 700
Took delivery of an xuv 700 on 6th jan and finished her first service.The model i bought is an at5.Consumption wise city driving about 8 to 9 km and in highway about 11.Some tell me it might improve after 1st service.Need to watch n see.Their map india app is a disaster and trusting it for driving could be a disaster.While it permits connecting android phone for navigation am unable to get google maps.Generally comfortable rides rear seats comfortable.Aircon control could be better with drivers hands on the steering the draughts on the left is not effective.Well one other issue noticed was while cleaning the tires with water a lot of black dust.The service center assured me it's brake dust n not a problem.I have in this 6 years had 3 new cars but never experienced this phenomenon.
The software is hopeless.
The software is hopeless.Android auto/ car play still not working even after 6 months.Infotainment is pain-tainment.Never works properly.Screen goes blank for frequently freezes.Alexa fails to respond properly most of the times.The driver seat memory fails often.So does the seat movement on opening the door.The net connectivity is impossible most of the time.If i have to go to the service centre for every upgrade, Then what is the use of having a net connected car.The usp of this car was its software and related features.It behaves like a reconditioned old laptop at best of times.I wonder if getting the initial delivery was a mistake!.
Whats not good whoever made the variants is real dumb person who has zero knowledge on market demand and go to market strategy.Adas features are only for 7 seater top end model variants.This is real show stopper for 5 seater suv buyer to drop the plan.Mileage is 12-13 per kms is a real deal breaker not to consider unless you have surplus money to spend.Cluster display mounted is non engineering way.Its straight horizontally placed where you don't see see the blind spot view unless you peek your eyes to it.I dropped this suv for one big reason, Adas is for 7 seater top end and every other model is as simple as just any other xuv.
Best User Experiences with XUV700
The xuv700 is an amazing vehicle.Both the scorpio n and the xuv700 have been test driven by me.The automobile is a great investment.The diesel manual luxury pack midnight black xuv700 is reserved by me.Although the scorpio n was fantastic, The xuv700 offered the whole package i was searching for.Interior aspects including the touchscreen, Colour scheme, And functions have outperformed other market competitors.The segment's best performance is the one that is the major focus.When you step on the gas pedal, You can immediately feel the power and how smooth the suspension is.I firmly advise the xuv700 diesel.
Mahindra xuv 700 has a very powerful engine.Mahindra has provided the xuv700 with two powertrain options: 200ps/380nm 2.0-litre turbo-petrol and a 2.2-litre diesel developing up to 185ps and 450nm.Both engines get 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic transmission options.As standard, The suv comes with a front-wheel drivetrain, And there’s an optional all-wheel drivetrain (for the diesel unit).The diesel engine gets four drive modes: zip, Zap, Zoom, And custom (individual).All these specs makes it best in the segment.

Mahindra XUV700 review after a 1,100 km long highway drive
I thought that the ADAS features would be useful but I was wrong. However, I'd say that the XUV700 is overall a better SUV than the Fortuner, Innova & Harrier.
BHPian nickelniks recently shared this with other enthusiasts.
I just completed 1100 km Nagpur to Bangalore drive, with a stopover at Hyderabad in an XUV 700 P AT. I travelled with my wife & 2.5 yr old son. I drove 100% of the way. Here are my observations.
Performance & handling
- Absolutely phenomenal. Power is always available & overtakes are easy.
- The car easily cruises at 120 kmph with the engine at 2k rpm.
- Engine is barely audible.
- Highway curves are handled easily while giving full confidence to the driver. Body roll is well contained.
- Absolutely in love with the car & did not feel tired even after 1100+ kms of driving. Max speed I went to was 120, that too when the road was open & obstruction-free for a long way ahead.
- High-speed comfort is good, and potholes are well absorbed. Though some potholes do filter in at times, and it is unpredictable which potholes will be absorbed & which will filter through. At speeds of 110+ a mild vibration was felt in the front section of the vehicle, not sure if it is due to a balancing problem or suspension passing on the road undulation. Please let me know if anyone else felt these vibrations at high speeds. This was more prominent when tyre temperature was 55+ & pressure was 36+ due to the high temperature.
- Though not important, I had reset the trip just before the start.
- MID showed 13.5 kmpl till Hyderabad, 12.5 before entering Bangalore & 11.7 when I reached home. Sunday Ugadi traffic was at its peak & airport to Bellandur took me 2 hours.
- Did not test with tankful method. But I am satisfied with the numbers. Most of the journey was done at speeds of 100-110 kmph.
- Seats are accomodating & comfortable. Tyre noise could have been better.
- The only sore point is the AC vents in the second row, they are too low & woefully inadequate. While the overall AC is powerful, second row occupants are left wanting due to the poor blower design.
- I was of the opinion that ADAS would be useful on such a long highway drive. But, boy was I wrong.
- Lane Keep Assist - just does not work on a 4 lane highway system where no one follows the lane discipline. It keeps beeping & correcting too often. Switched it off in the first 30 mins.
- ACC - Cruise control works well for the most part. But when it detects a slow-moving vehicle up ahead, it applies brakes pretty hard. Making the ride uncomfortable.
- Also, if the smart pilot assist is tick marked, lane keep assist automatically turns on during cruise control. I had to take a second stop to figure this out & disable it.
- ACC needs to be disabled every time there are slow-moving vehicles in both the lanes, otherwise, ACC applied hard brakes on detecting the vehicle up ahead.
- Overall, a lot of juggleries are required to make ACC work. There were times when I just decided to drive without ACC, as I did not want to do all the jugglery.
- ADAS features work well on expressways. Like Hyderabad ORR, on that road, I could switch on all features & relax a bit while driving.
XUV 700 is a fantastic vehicle, which an entire family will love. Having driven Harrier, Innova & Fortuner in the past, I would say XUV is better than all of them in terms of power, space, comfort & refinement as an overall package. Yes, even the Fortuner (may be an unpopular opinion).
