The front fascia flaunts a new grille with huge LED headlamps and LED daytime running lamps (DRLs) which are identical to the ones seen with the test mules. The LED fog lamp units have been integrated in the front bumper. The side profile is carried over from the XUV500, save for the introduction of flush-fitting door handles. As for the rear end, it boasts of L-shaped LED tail-lamps. Mahindra XUV700 features will include a massive panoramic sunroof, twin screens for digital instrument cluster and touchscreen infotainment system, auto booster headlamps, automatic climate control and wireless charging.
