will launch the Mahindra All New 7-Seater Premium SUV in the Indian market before Diwali this year. The name of the production model of this vehicle, whose codename is Y 400, can be named Mahindra XUV 700. This will be the brand's flagship SUV and its sales will start on October 9, 2018.
Mahindra Y400 was first showcased at Auto Expo. The company had brought it to the public in the Annual Group meeting held in Mumbai. This is actually SsangYong's Global SUV Rexton which will be re-badged for India. In India, this car will give competition to Toyota Fortuner, Ford Endeavor, Isuzu MU-X, Mitsubishi Pajero Sport and the upcoming new Honda CR-V.
The Volkswagen T-Cross by Hyundai can be launched in 2019, these SUVs will be the same overlap profile of this new SUV, similar to that of Global Rexton, but Mahindra has made some changes in its front design so that it can be given a family look.
Vertical slated grill and lightly-modified bumpers will be seen in it. Suspension setup has also been prepared in terms of Indian roads. Mahindra can keep prudent pricing for this SUV. Hopefully, this can be cheaper than the Toyota Fortune and Ford Endeavor.
