Based on SsangYong LIV-2 Concept, the Mahindra Y400 7-Seater SUV will take on Toyota Fortuner and Ford Endeavour in India.
The homegrown automaker will officially launch the long-awaited 7-seater premium SUV – codenamed Y400 – in India on November 19, 2018. This will be the brand’s flagship SUV and will be positioned above the XUV500. The company is yet to announce the official name for this SUV, but media reports suggest that the SUV could be called Mahindra XUV700. With this SUV, Mahindra will also introduce its premium dealership network. The Mahindra Y400 will be sold via the new Mahindra Prime dealership section, which is called World of SUVs.
The all-new Mahindra premium SUV is based on the SsangYong LIV-2 concept. The Mahindra Y400 7-seater SUV was first showcased at the 2018 Delhi Auto Expo in the pre-production form. The company had displayed the production-ready model to public at the brand’s annual meeting in Mumbai. Powering the new SUV is a 2.2-litre 4-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine that is paired to either a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed automatic gearbox.

Mahindra Y400 SUV Exterior
The all-new Mahindra Y400 sits on a new-generation body-on-frame chassis that also underpins the new-gen SsangYong Rexton. Designed on the LIV-2 concept, this new SUV borrows design cues from the concept avatar. The front bumper looks sporty with chrome accents running across its width. It is equipped with a familiar Mahindra grille with vertical slats, LED headlamps with LED daytime running lights and prominent bonnet further enhances its aggressive appearance.
The side profile gets rugged alloy wheels and pronounced wheel arches. On sides, the SUV has sharp creases, sloping roofline and slim A & B pillars that give it a sporty profile. At the back, the SUV comes with LED rear combination side lights, roof integrated spoiler with high-mounted LED stop light and LED number plate lights.
In terms of proportions, the SUV is likely to be similar to the SsangYong Rexton G4. The global model is 4,850mm in length, 1,960mm in width and 1,800mm in height. It comes with a long wheelbase of 2,850mm that hints at a large cabin. The ground clearance is likely to be notably more than Fortuner.
