Q. Which variant of XUV700 is worth buying?
  • Selecting the best variant would depend on certain factors such as our budget, preference of the fuel type, features required, seating capacity, etc. The XUV700 is offered in two broad trims: MX and AX (AdrenoX). The lower variant is available with a 5-seating layout and can be had either with a 2-litre turbo-petrol or a 2.2-litre diesel engine option. For the diesel engine, the MX is detuned to 155PS/360Nm and is limited to a 6-speed manual gearbox and front-wheel drive. Whereas, the AX variant gets the more powerful 185PS state of tune from its 2.2-litre diesel engine, as well as the 6-speed torque converter automatic and all-wheel drive options.
