The name is up in the air however reports recommend that the organization will hold the ‘Rexton’ nameplate, while the auto is probably going to be named the ‘Mahindra Rexton XUV700’.
The choice to change the marking is a consequence of lower brand recall for SsangYong. Additionally, developing the brand ground will require generous speculation and time. So, the India-spec Rexton will be each piece a similar auto that is discounted in the global market. The lead SUV will be situated over the Mahindra XUV500 with every one of the extravagant accessories to contend with the opposition.

The global model comes furnished with highlights like projector headlamps, a LCD instrument bunch, a 9.2-inch HD touch-screen infotainment framework with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, cooled seats, a 360-degree camera, and Nappa leather upholstery among others. We anticipate that Mahindra will overlook a couple of highlights like the Nappa leather upholstery, cooled seats and the 360-degree camera. All things considered, the Mahindra Rexton XUV700 is relied upon to be evaluated around INR 24 lakh (ex-showroom), while dispatch will happen amid the happy period (October 2018).
