Hi Sir,

Hope you are doing well .
I have just purchase your premium option cause I am getting confuse between cars.

confuse between xuv700 base model MX diesel and harrier smart option.
I took test drive of both cars,safety wise I am confuse cause xuv 700 base model provide only 2 airbags with speaker and screen.
But harrier smart option is providing 6 airbags but infotainment sysytem missing but here w e have alloywheel and other things.
My running is occationaly ,sometime family trip,sometime I have to go to my worklocation Hyderabad to visit office which is 600 km from my hometown.
Please advise me sir whats your opinion.
Note-I ride honda elevate also .

Dear Abhishek ji,

Greetings !!
I understood in requirement. pls find some inputs

a. Base Model of XUV700 is powered by a different CRDI Diesel Engine (as against there line up) with 153 BHP Power, 360 NM Torque (182 BHP Power and 420 NM Torque in Adrenox Series). This engine although is detuned and do not feel as impressive as regular Adrenox series engine or Harrier with 170 PS but trust on Standalone basis - you will never encounter any performance loss in this 153 BHP Engine

b. Tata Harrier is poorly equipped in base trims. For instance
> Not only smart, but even smart option lacks on Factory Fitted Music System
> Even if you go upto Pure - you will still not get Remote Central Lock and shockingly no Electric ORVM - for a buyer whos spending in 20 Lakh

c. Mahindra XUV700 Mx Diesel although is basic but yes has
> Factory Fitted Touchscreen with Android Auto
> You get Electric ORVM, Remote Central Lock too
> Has all essentials including AC, Power Steering, All 4 Power Window, Remote Lock, Electric ORVM, Factory Fitted Music System with Camera and even has steering mount switches too
> Even attractively priced against Harrier and you can rear view camera (part number AW6018) cost Rs 4000 approx

You do not need to worry about missing side & Curtain Airbags as XUV700 Scored 5 star with body shell integrity marked stable.
If its base model - indeed is not only XUV 700 Mx Diesel attractively priced but offers more value with equipped features and would be better value deal over Harrier base model (near 1 Lakh lesser priced against Harrier). Can use that sum for 5 yr warranty and near 4 yr service cost to be even more value.

d. End Fuel Efficiency in XUV700 Base Diesel Model would be marginally better off against Harrier

Should help !!

Thank you so much sir for your quick response, it would be great if suggest other cars as well based on my requirements.
I took the test drive of the Honda Elevate also previously the VX MT variant, but when I took a test drive for the XUV 700 my mind stuck oh the XUV 700 only.
First-time buyer so have lots of confusion.

Thanks for your quick response sir.
As It will be my first car, it would be great if you suggest other cars as well based on my requirements.
FYI I took the latest drive of the Honda Elevate and it was my first choice, but when I took a test drive of xuv 700 my budget increased by 15 to 17 approx :D

Verma ji

Cant really compare in smaller 1.5 Litre Petrol Engine car that too in naturally aspirated state with mere 120 BHP, 145 NM Petrol Engine with larger 2.2 Litre Diesel engine with 153 BHP Power and near 2x torque at 360 NM

Additionally - space element, looks of XUV700 Diesel - will find suddenly jumping ahead from Elevate to a segment up car
But - if you have to drive on highways, expressway - only missing deal element in this car is Cruise control - had this been there could have been a near excellent pick.

Infact its sibling Scorpio N has hydraulic steering with even lesser power at just 130 BHP and 300 NM - in Z2, Z4 - so that makes XUV700 Mx Diesel even more worthy pick for ease of drive with Electric Power Steering and price point at 14.59 Lakh for 5 seater is what super value.

Indeed can install at Mahindra service center - many customers installed in past
No risk as would be done through showroom as only acceptable quality with wiring harness products sold through showroom - at your end you just need a proper invoice from dealer for same
