Mahindra XUV400 7-seater model will be based on the XUV300 platform.
Mahindra & Mahindra, the homegrown automaker is all set to launch the long-awaited Mahindra XUV300 sub-4 meter SUV in India in February 2019. What’s interesting is that the company is also working on the 7-seater version of the SUV, which will sit above 4 meters. Speculations are on rife that the 7-seater model could be called the Mahindra XUV400. Though, Mahindra is yet to make an official announcement on the same.
The Mahindra XUV400 will be the brand’s 4th model to be based on the monocoque platform and 3rd in the XUV range of SUVs. It will be positioned right between the XUV300 and XUV500 and will challenge the likes of next-gen Hyundai Creta and Nissan Kicks. The SUV will use the stretched-out version of the SsangYong’s X100 platform, which also underpins the Tivoli XLV. The SUV is expected to be powered by a 1.5-litre turbo-diesel engine, which also powers the Marazzo. The petrol version could use the new 1.2-litre turbo-petrol or Mahindra could fit an all-new petrol engine.
Mahindra XUV400 Launch Date
The exact launch details of the SUV are yet to be revealed. A possible launch in the first quarter of 2020 can’t be ignored. The SUV could make its debut at the 2020 Delhi Auto Expo. We will update you as soon as Mahindra reveals anything on the same.

The SUV could share the petrol engine with the XUV300, but it will be tuned for higher power and torque outputs. Previous reports suggest that the brand’s new 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine is capable of producing up to 130-140PS of power. Both manual and automatic options are likely to be on offer.

Mahindra XUV400 Exterior, Interior
This SUV will be based on the versatile SsangYong’s X100 platform that also underpins the Tivoli and Tivoli XLV. Similar to the Tivolo XLV, the Mahindra XUV400 will ride on the stretched platform to create more space inside the cabin. The SUV will share most of its body panels and styling elements with the XUV300. The SUV will also share design cues from the Mahindra XUV500. The Mahindra XUV400 will get the company’s signature grille, large projector headlamps with LED DRLs, big bumper, sculpted bonnet, skid plates and pronounced wheel arches. Unlike XUV300, the XUV400 could have stratighter roof to offer better headroom for third-row of seats. Also See – Mahindra XUV300 Vs Tata Nexon
