The Petrol Automatic of the newly launched XUV700 was tested and the real world mileage is more than that displayed on the MID
Mahindra has started delivering the XUV700 across India. The customers have started testing the real-life fuel efficiency within city limits. Here is one such real-world fuel efficiency test.
Mahindra offers the all-new XUV700 with both petrol and diesel engine options. However, the Indian manufacturer is currently only delivering the petrol variants of the car. This video by India Revs finds out the real-world fuel efficiency of the Mahindra XUV700 petrol automatic inside the city.
Mahindra XUV700 Petrol Tested
To find the real-world fuel efficiency, they took the Mahindra XUV700 to the fuel station and got it filled to the brim. The car was driven in the city for about 45 km to find out the fuel consumption.
There were four occupants in the vehicle and the climate control was switched on as well. The Mahindra XUV700 went through a mixed driving cycle including heavy traffic, open roads and start-stop traffic as well. At the end of the trip, the fuel tank was topped up once again in order to find out the real-world fuel efficiency.
Mahindra XUV700 Mileage
After leaving the fuel station, the Mahindra XUV700 once again drove mostly through dense traffic and start-stop situations. With four people on board and the climate control in use, the Mahindra XUV700 petrol-automatic’s MID indicated that the fuel efficiency will be around 7.8 km/l.
After completing 44.6 km according to the display at an average speed of 33 km/h, they go to refill the fuel tank again. A total of 4.38 litres of fuel was filled in the tank. On calculating the fuel efficiency, it comes out to be around 10.37 km/l, which is higher than the MID indicated efficiency.
Mahindra XUV700 How much power does it generate?
The all-new Mahindra XUV700 is powered by both petrol and diesel engine options. The petrol engine is a 2.0-litre turbocharged mStallion unit that generates a maximum power of 200 PS and a peak torque of 380 Nm. It is the most powerful engine in the segment.
The diesel variants are powered by a 2.2-litre engine that generates a maximum power of 185 PS and 420 Nm of peak torque with the high-end variants while the lower, entry-level variant gets 155 PS and 360 Nm from the same engine. Both the engine options get a six-speed manual and a six-speed torque converter automatic.
For a petrol-automatic car of this size, the fuel efficiency of 10.37 km/l is not disappointing at all. The XUV700 gets the most powerful petrol engine in the segment and even with four occupants and climate control turned on, it is a decent mileage. The owner of the car says that he got around 13 km/l when he drove on the highways during a road trip.
