Mahindra XUV 700 Launch On 15th August! Can It Beat Hyundai Alcazar, Tata Safari?
The latest reports suggest that the launch of the Mahindra XUV700 is much closer than expected earlier.
Soon the mirage will turn into reality for awaiting buyers as the debut date for New XUV700 is set for 15th August 2021, according to the sources.
Although, the automotive manufacturer is yet to announce a debut date for XUV700.
The spied images reveal production spec interiors of what looks like top of the line trim.
SkyRoof And Boss Mode In Interiors
So far, the Mahindra XUV700 continues to be on test. The latest spied images show interiors done in a dual tone of white and black, giving a premium / luxurious feel.
There is also evidence of Panoramic sunroof, which Mahindra is calling SkyRoof in XUV700.
The other noticeable change is the front passenger seat with well-integrated lever on its side.
Basically this helps the rear passenger to move/recline the front passenger seat.
Similar kind of facility is present in Tata Safari and also known as Boss Mode.
Driver Drowsiness Detection Feature
Interestingly now, the focus is on detecting a drowsy or snoozing driver, also called ‘Driver Drowsiness Detection’ feature.
This is basically a system that senses when the driver is drowsy or falling asleep and automatically nudges the driver to wakefulness.
However, Mahindra does not go into detail as to how the driver is woken from his reverie.
But no one can deny that this new age feature is especially useful over long distance driving.
Same kind of feature is already on offer in high-end luxury cars.
So, if this system detects such signals, it will immediately alert the driver.
This signaling could be with the steering wheel vibrating or with some safety chimes, etc.
Although, It is yet to be learnt if the car could come to a complete halt in the event of the driver not responding to these wake up signals.
In the past, driver fatigue has been the main issue for countless mishaps due to tiredness, tedious road and weather conditions.
This system will also help if the driver is addicted to alcohol or any other intoxicants.
Citing the need, Mahindra has noted the urgent need for such an alert system and finally incorporated the same in its XUV700 SUV.
