Mahindra recently raised the prices of its best-selling SUVs, the Scorpio-N, the Thar, and the XUV700. With immediate effect, the Indian auto major has increased prices on several variants of the mentioned models. The carmaker's prior declaration that the cost of its vehicles will increase starting this month owing to increased production expenses is consistent with the decision to hike the prices. Following the most recent hike, the cost of these cars has increased by up to Rs 57,000. Meanwhile, the brand also rolled out the 2024 iteration of the XUV700 for the domestic market with a starting price tag of Rs 13.99 lakh (ex-showroom). The new XUV700 features captain seats for the second row, ventilated front seats, and first-in-segment memory ORVMs. The ventilated front seats are exclusive to the AX7L model, although the captain seats are available on both the AX7 and AX7L variants. The SUV also receives new exterior Napoli black paint, a black front grille, and black alloy wheels. Now, let's get back to the details of the hike on the three Mahindra models.
