There is a huge price gap of ₹2.43 lakh on XUV700’s MX and AX3 variants. In terms of features too both variants differ as dual 10.25-inch touchscreen starts right from AX3 variant.

Waiting Period On Mahindra XUV700

As new Mahindra XUV700 MX (E) variant is ready for launch we may soon get reduced waiting period on the SUV. At present the waiting period on XUV700 base models are just 2 to 3 months which is normal. Mid variants waiting period are little bit higher at 5 months but on top-spec AX7 and AX7 L variants the waiting period is more than one year. Despite being expensive the top variants of XUV700 has highest demand among all other variants and so waiting period on both variants are huge.
