Based on SsangYong LIV-2 Concept, the Mahindra Y400 7-Seater SUV will take on Toyota Fortuner and Ford Endeavour in India.
It’s no secret that Mahindra is working on an all-new premium SUV based on the SsangYong LIV-2 concept. Internally known as Mahindra Y400, this new 7-seater SUV will sit above the carmaker’s flagship model XUV500 in India. The all-new Mahindra SUV will have its world premiere at the 2017 Seoul Motor Show next month. Prior to its unveiling, the company has released a couple sketches of the SUV revealing its exterior and interior layout.
The official sketches show the aggressive front bumper with chrome accents and grille, LED headlamps and LED DRLs, pronounced bonnet and bold shoulder creases. However, the India-spec version might receive subtle design tweaks such as an all-new grille with vertical elements. The cabin,too, might be loaded with several advanced connectivity features. Power source for the new Mahindra could be a 2.2L turbo diesel unit with a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed automatic gearbox options. Read More – SsangYong Rexton 2017 – All You Need To Know

In terms of pricing, Mahindra’s new 7-seater SUV is likely to undercut its closest rivals – Toyota Fortuner and Ford Endeavour. Speculations suggest that it will be Rs 4 lakh – Rs 5 lakh less expensive than the Fortuner. Since it will be slotted above the XUV500, we expect it to be priced between Rs 20 lakh – Rs 28 lakh.

As mentioned in the beginning, the new Mahindra 7-seater SUV will source its power from a 2.2-litre turbocharged diesel motor pushing out a healthy 184bhp and 420Nm of torque. For transmission choices, there could be a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed automatic autobox. Rumour has it that Mahindra might also introduce a 2.0-litre petrol engine on the SUV at a later stage.This gasoline unit makes 225bhp and 349Nm of torque.

The all-new Y400 will sit on a new-generation body-on-frame chassis that will also be used for the SsangYong crew-cab. Designed on the LIV-2 concept, this new SUV will borrow some of its design cues from the concept avatar. However, the latest sketches reveal that it will feature a mildly toned down styling. The front bumper looks
sporty with chrome accents running across its width. The new grille, LED headlamps with LED daytime running lights and prominent bonnet further enhance its aggressive appearance.
Although, the India-spec version will carry conventional Mahindra styling especially at the front fascia. The flared wheel arches fitted with rugged alloy wheels and lots of chrome spread below the doors across its lenght accentuate side profile of the SUV. Proportionally, the new Mahindra SUV might be similar to the LIV-2 concept that measures 4,850mm in length, 1,960mm in width and 1,800mm in height. The wheelbase of the car might stand at 2,865mm, which is around 120mm more than the Toyota Fortuner.
Like the aggressive exterior appearance, the cabin of the Y400 too expected to get modern touches and technologically advanced features. The SUV might come with a dashboard mounted vertically placed 9.2-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Wi-Fi, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. For rear occupants, there could be a 10.1-inch displays in the back of the front head rests.
Moreover, the seats might have a massage function. Other key features include mood lighting, multi-functional steering wheel, electric sidesteps and technology, selectable all-wheel drive system, 9 airbags, advanced emergency braking system, ABS with EBD, hill
assist and many others.
The all-new Mahindra Y400 7-seater SUV will be based on the SsangYong LIV-2 concept. To be positioned above the XUV500, this SUV will make its global debut at the Seoul Motor Show in April, 2017.
