Mahindra XUV700 MX Petrol AT: New Variant to Enhance Accessibility

With the issuance of a Type Approval Certificate by ARAI, Mahindra’s move to introduce the MX Petrol AT variant indicates its commitment to broadening the appeal of the XUV700 range. This addition is expected to cater to customers seeking the convenience of an automatic transmission at a more budget-friendly price point.

Bridging the Price Gap

Currently, the automatic gearbox is available only in the higher-end AX3, AX5, and AX7 trims, with prices starting at Rs. 18.19 lakh (ex-showroom). The introduction of the MX Petrol AT variant is poised to significantly lower the entry-level cost of owning an automatic XUV700, making it more accessible to a wider audience.
