Mahindra XUV & Other Mahindra Vans
Mahindra is back with a new model, the Mahindra XUV700. The company claims that this SUV will have all the quality features and technology of its larger, more costly brother, the Mahindraonda SUV. It has been designed to be more fuel efficient than its older sibling, the Mahindra SDV. Both SUVs have similar fuel consumption rates and this new model promises to offer them even greater performance. The Mahindra XUV700 has all the modern safety features such as front and side curtain airbags, the automatic seatbelts, the LATCH system for infants and the car’s safety system, LATCH-Eyes.
The Mahindra XUV has been designed for utility, economy and all round efficiency. The company claims that the all-weather SUV is cheaper to run than the two other variants of the Mahindra XUV range, the suv-specifically the 2.2-litre diesel variant. The biggest selling point of these vehicles is their fuel efficiency and this is helped by the gasoline engine which has twin fuel system. With a single gasoline engine driving both the front and rear axels, fuel consumption is almost double that of the diesel variant.
The standard model of the Mahindra XUV comes with an all-weather automatic transmission, six-speed manual gearbox, twin airbags, roll cage, driver’s seat and front and rear seat side airbags. All these help the XUV in offering maximum protection to the passengers. The vehicle also comes with comprehensive crash test protection, a safety belt, front and rear bumper and corner and side airbags. All these safety features help to reduce the chances of any injuries occurring due to accidents.
The powertrain on the Mahindra XUV700 comes in two forms; diesel engines and gasoline engines. The diesel engine runs at a higher compression capacity. This means that the power of the engine is delivered at a faster speed and with greater torque. However, the downside of the diesel engine is that it is more polluting as compared to gasoline engines. Also, it has a shorter life span.
The gasoline powered version of the Mahindra XUV is mated with a six-speed automatic transmission, mated with a powerful turbo-charger. This Turbo charger supplies a greater amount of torque at higher speeds, which helps to power the heavier weight machine. It also contributes to the overall better performance of the vehicle. On the whole, the two drive modes are quite compatible and offer smooth ride in both normal and emergency driving conditions.
The second variant of the Mahindra XUV has an automatic transmission. The engine power comes from a petrol engine that offers a better power transfer and higher torque. This makes it suitable for heavy weight machines. It offers a comfortable drive. But, it lacks the luxury options that come with the diesel SUVs like passenger seats, cargo bed space, rain side glass and climate control.
Both the diesel and petrol engines have their own advantages and disadvantages. It is vital to choose the one that is convenient for you. And the best way to find out is to go for a vehicle with a good sound system and an adrenal enclosure. With an Adrenox enclosure, passengers and the drivers are keeping safe and comfortable even while traveling in the cab of the SUV.
The Mahindra XUV and its other two suv variants come with a panoramic sunroof, a storage compartment for luggage, and a spacious boot. Some of the other features of the mx variant include: auto shut off headlights, xenon headlights, passenger seat, leather interior, full leather steering wheel, dashboard, front passenger air bags, 3D instrument panel, dual zone climate control, auto start-stop button, memory key, auto door lock, cd changer, satellite radio, stainless steel key holder, glove box, TFT head unit, remote starter, tachometer, stainless steel exhaust system, power folding sunroof, front wheel drive with limited mileage, cargo bay, torque-limited tire and tow bars. There are many more models available in the Mahindra SUV line as well as in the other mahindra suvs.
