Mahindra is gearing up to launch its first-ever SUV coupe, the XUV900, in India. The XUV900 will be based on the XUV Aero concept that was showcased at the 2016 Auto Expo and will sit above the XUV700 in Mahindra’s lineup. The 2024 Mahindra XUV900 will compete with the likes of the Tata Harrier, MG Hector, and Hyundai Creta in the mid-size SUV segment. Here are some of the key features and specifications of the Mahindra XUV900:
Mahindra XUV900 Dimensions, Ground Clearance, Boot Space, and Tyre Size
The Mahindra XUV900 will be a four-door SUV-coupe with a sloping roofline and a sporty stance. The exact dimensions of the XUV900 are not yet revealed, but we expect it to be similar to the XUV700, which measures 4,695mm in length, 1,890mm in width, and 1,755mm in height.
The wheelbase of the XUV700 is 2,750mm and we expect the XUV900 to have a slightly shorter wheelbase due to its coupe-like design. The ground clearance of the XUV700 is 200mm and we expect the XUV900 to have a similar or slightly lower ground clearance. The boot space of the XUV700 is 445 litres and we expect the XUV900 to have a smaller boot space due to its sloping roofline. The tyre size of the XUV700 is 255/60 R18 and we expect the XUV900 to have a similar or larger tyre size.

Mahindra XUV900 Engine and Performance
The Mahindra XUV900 will share its engine options with the XUV700. The XUV700 comes with two engine options: a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine that produces 200PS of power and 380Nm of torque, and a 2.2-litre diesel engine that produces 185PS of power and 420Nm of torque. Both engines are paired with either a 6-speed manual or an automatic transmission. The XUV700 also offers an all-wheel-drive option for both engines. The XUV900 will likely offer the same engine and transmission options as the XUV700, but it may also get some performance tweaks to make it more agile and sporty. Mahindra has also announced that it will offer an all-electric version of the XUV900 in the future.
Expected Launch Date and Price in India
The Mahindra XUV900 is expected to launch in India by 2024. The exact launch date and price are not yet revealed, but we expect the XUV900 to be priced higher than the XUV700, which starts from Rs 15.20 lakh (ex-showroom). The XUV900 could be priced in the range of Rs 20-25 lakh (ex-showroom), depending on the variant and features. The electric version of the XUV900 could be priced higher than the petrol and diesel versions.
The Mahindra XUV900 will be a unique offering in the Indian market, as it will be the first SUV-coupe from a homegrown brand. The XUV900 will appeal to those who want a stylish and sporty SUV with good performance and features. The XUV900 will also be future-ready with an electric option that will cater to the eco-conscious buyers. The Mahindra XUV900 will be an exciting addition to Mahindra’s portfolio of unmissable SUVs.
