One of the exhibits at Mahindra's pavilion at this year’s Auto Expo was the re-badged SsangYong G4 Rexton which was first previewed at the 2017 Seoul Motor Show. Codenamed Y400, the model will be slotted above Mahindra’s flagship XUV500 SUV and is likely to carry the XUV700 nameplate. A test mule of Y400 has been spotted sporting a new grille concealed with a tape. The grille varies distinctly from the one seen in SsangYong’s. The rest of the body was undisguised which did not reveal much changes. This implies, changes will prominently be made to the front end with a redesigned grille featuring six vertical slats, somewhat similar to the prototype displayed at the Auto Expo 2018.

Built on the ladder-on-frame construction, the upcoming SUV will inherit Mahindra’s off-roading traits and is likely to carry longer wheelbase than the segment leader, Toyota Fortuner. Inside the cabin, it will feature a seven-seat layout and will come layered with a host of comfort as well as connectivity tech such as a 9.2-inch touchscreen infotainment system supported by Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, premium interior finishers, multi-functional steering wheel with mounted controls, etc. The list of safety features will ostensibly include as many as nine airbags and several driver assistance features.

Power on the seven-seat SUV will come from the 2.2-litre e-XDi220 LET turbocharged oil burner good for maximum of 187 PS against 420 Nm. This is the same unit which currently powers the Rexton. This engine will come paired to a seven-speed automatic gearbox sourced from Mercedes-Benz. It will additionally come with two and four-wheel drive configurations and there could be a 2.0-litre petrol unit as well which will be coupled to a six-speed manual transmission. In a bid to give it cusp over rivals such as Toyota Fortuner, Mitsubishi Pajero Sport,Honda CR-V, Isuzu MU-X and Ford Endeavour, Mahindra will price the XUV700 competitively.
