Mahindra XUV700 5-Seat Diesel MX vs AX3 Variant – Price, Feature Comparison

The 2.2L turbo diesel engine is also available in the 5-seat diesel AX3 version of the XUV700, although it is paired with a 6-speed torque converter automatic transmission instead of a manual one. A higher 185PS of power and 420Nm of torque is produced by this engine when paired with the manual transmission in the AX3 model. 185PS of power and 450Nm of torque is produced at the same levels as the automatic transmission. This model costs Rs. 16.0 lakh with the manual transmission and Rs. 17.91 lakh with the automatic transmission (ex-showroom). The price difference between the MX diesel manual and the AX3 diesel manual is Rs. 2.04 lakh. The price difference between the AX3 diesel manual and diesel automatic is Rs. 1,91,000.

The AX3 variant gets the following features over the base MX variant:

More powerful diesel engine (+30PS of power & +60Nm of torque)

  • Halogen fog lamps
  • Larger touchscreen
  • Larger instrument cluster display
  • Split 2nd-row seats
  • Wireless Android Auto
  • Wireless Apple Carplay
  • Alexa voice commands
  • Rear defogger, washer and wiper
  • Wheel covers
  • LED DRLs

Mahindra XUV700 AX3 variant doesn’t have some essential features like:

  • LED headlamps
  • Rear camera
  • Auto AC
  • Keyless entry with push-button start
  • Tyre pressure sensor
  • Rear armrest
  • Cruise control

Although it does have several essential functions, the pricing is quite high considering what is added. The cheaper MX model also boasts many features for most purchasers on a tight budget. However, if the MX model is too simple for your tastes, you should immediately upgrade to the AX5 trim because it is significantly more affordable than the AX3.

Mahindra XUV700 5-Seat Diesel AX3 vs AX5 Variant – Price, Feature Comparison

The price for the 5-seat diesel AX5 XUV700 is Rs. 17.44 lakh with the diesel-manual transmission and Rs. 19.24 lakh with the diesel-automatic transmission. The diesel-manual and diesel-automatic AX5 models cost Rs. 1.44 and Rs. 1.33 lakh more than comparable AX3 variants, respectively.

For this additional cost, this variant adds the following outstanding features:

  • Panoramic sunroof
  • 17-inch machined alloy wheels
  • Electronic stability control
  • 2x curtain airbags
  • Even this variant doesn’t get features like:
  • Auto AC
  • Rear armrest
  • Tyre pressure sensors
  • Keyless entry with push-button start/stop
  • Cruise control
  • LED reflector headlamps

While the AX5 variation doesn’t offer many essential capabilities, it does provide a few high-value features to more fully support the value for money than the less expensive AX3 variant. Therefore, the AX5 is a better value-for-money alternative than the AX3 if you want these capabilities but don’t want to be content with the simple MX variant. For a better overall ownership experience and better value for money, we suggest purchasing the AX5 rather than the AX3 with the automatic.
