Mahindra Y400 speculated to be named XUV700…
SsangYong G4 Rexton based Mahindra’s Fortuner rival, codenamed Y400, is expected to be launching on 9th October. As per the announcement at Marazzo name reveal, it was supposed to launch after the S201 compact SUV. But, now this rumour. Does that mean S201 is delayed? We will have to wait and watch.
Mahindra has been testing Y400 extensively over the past many months and we have shared its spy pics time and again. Recently, we shared its clearest spy shots till date where the upcoming car was caught in its production guise. These pics were shared in a story done by GaadiWaadi. The spied version carries a Mahindra grille and appears to be the top end version. A production-ready Y400 has already been showcased at Mahindra AGM some time back. There is a speculation that it might be named XUV700 but, nothing is confirmed yet.
Mahindra Y400 features
Y400 is expected to carry forward most of the design elements & features of the new generation Rexton, which looks more matured & premium than its predecessor. It will get things like:
- Leather upholstery
- Ventilated seats
- Dual zone climate control
- Electric sunroof
- 9.2-inch infotainment system with navigation

Mahindra Y400 Engine & Transmission
The Y400 will be offered with a 2.2L diesel engine which will produce 178PS power and 420Nm torque. This will come mated to a 7-speed, Mercedes sourced torque converter automatic gearbox. There is no word on manual version as yet. The car is expected to be offered in an all-wheel-drive version as well.
Once launched in India, Mahindra Y400 will take on the likes of Ford Endeavour, Isuzu MUX and Toyota Fortuner. Mahindra is expected to price the car around 25 lakh and if this turns out to be true, it will have one more winner at hand similar to the XUV500.
