It goes beyond doubt that Mahindra has become successful in appealing to customers by offering plenty of mind-blowing features in the XUV700.

Other noteworthy features are a panoramic sunroof, electrically adjustable seats with memory function, 360-degree camera with blind view monitor and wireless charging to name a few.
