Here’s a look at how aggressively is the Mahindra XUV700 truly priced against its competition.
We’ve waited for nearly a month-and-a-half to know about the complete prices on the Mahindra XUV700, and they are finally here. Starting from a mouth-watering price tag of ₹ 11.99 lakh (ex-showroom), the new XUV700 is clearly here to dominate and plans to squash everything under its monocoque body from subcompact and compact SUVs, to the larger mid-size multi-seaters. The new Mahindra XUV700 gets over 20 variants on offer with five and seven-seater options, so there’s something for everyone. And with that elaborate set of trim options and price points, it takes on a number of rivals. Here’s a look at how aggressively is the XUV700 truly priced against the competition.

Mahindra XUV700 vs Tata Safari – ₹ 14.99 Lakh – ₹ 22.14 Lakh
Both the XUV and Safari names have been rivals for years now, and in the completely new avatars, both SUVs have grown by a massive leap as brand flagships. While the XUV700 gets a petrol engine and a five-seater option, the Safari misses out on both completely. So, considering only the seven-seater variants of both models, it’s the Tata Safari that gets the upper hand with a lower asking price of ₹ 14.99 lakh. Meanwhile, the XUV700 diesel seven-seater range starts from ₹ 16.19 lakh, which is about ₹ 1.2 lakh more expensive. The XUV though holds the advantage with the top-end variant that’s priced at ₹ 21.09 lakh for the AWD version, while the top-spec Safari AT is priced at ₹ 22.14 lakh. Do note the Luxury Pack on the XUV700 with all the creature comforts comes at a premium of Rs 1.8 lakh and will set you back by ₹ 23.39 lakh (ex-showroom).
Mahindra XUV700 vs Hyundai Alcazar – ₹ 16.30 Lakh – ₹ 20.15 Lakh
The Hyundai Alcazar may be smaller in proportions over its rivals but it makes up for it with its spacious cabin and a tonne of features. The XUV700 holds the advantage with lower-priced seven-seater petrol variants starting at ₹ 15.59 lakh, whereas the Alcazar petrol range starts at ₹ 16.30 lakh. Meanwhile, the Alcazar diesel line-up starts from ₹ 16.53 lakh, which is about ₹ 34,000 more than the XUV700. The Alcazar also emerges as more expensive on the top-spec diesel AT variant that retails at ₹ 20.15 lakh, whereas the XUV700 AX7 AT (without AWD) is priced at a lower ₹ 19.79 lakh.
Mahindra XUV700 vs MG Hector Plus – ₹ 13.97 Lakh – ₹ 19.50 Lakh
The MG Hector Plus is priced from ₹ 13.97 lakh for the petrol variants, which makes it substantially cheaper than the XUV700 AX5 7-seater that is priced at ₹ 15.59 lakh. The XUV700 also holds the advantage when it comes to the top-end petrol AT with the AX7 variant priced at ₹ 19.19 lakh, whereas the top-spec Hector Plus petrol AT is priced at ₹ 19.50 lakh. MG offers the Hector Plus diesel version with only the manual transmission priced between ₹ 15.39 lakh and ₹ 19.50 lakh. While the entry-level variant undercuts the XUV700, Mahindra has priced at the top-end manual more competitively at ₹ 18.19 lakh.
Mahindra XUV700 vs Jeep Compass – ₹ 17.19 Lakh – ₹ 28.64 Lakh
A five-seater offering that’s as loaded as the seven-seater options, the Jeep Compass brings its good looks and fun-to-drive quotient to the fore in the segment. The petrol range starts from ₹ 17.19 lakh, going up to ₹ 25.64 lakh, while the diesel line-up is priced from ₹ 18.89 lakh, going all the way up to ₹ 28.64 lakh. The American mid-size SUV sure comes at a premium over the XUV700.
