Mahindra ‘Y400’ Rexton-Based SUV Launched
New Delhi: Mahindra will launch its new flagship SUV, codenamed Y400 today. According to reports, the SUV will slot above the XUV500 and will rival the likes of the Toyota Fortuner ad the Ford Endeavour.
It is said that the Mahindra SUV, however, will be based on the current generation Rexton sold overseas. It is expected to be priced at a slight premium, with prices starting from around Rs 26 lakh.
Meanwhile, Mahindra has also confirmed that it will be offering a more premium dealership experience to the Y400 customers.
The new Mahindra grille is flanked by HID headlamps with DRLs on the top. The tall hood will most likely pack a 2.2-litre diesel engine underneath, which produces 181PS of max power and 420Nm of peak torque.
Mated to the engine will be a Mercedes-derived 7-speed E-Tronic transmission which will offer both 4X2 and 4X4 drivetrain configurations.
The four-wheel drive variants should come with a locking differential and a low-ratio transfer case as well.
The 2.0-litre turbo-diesel engine that is available internationally will most likely not make it to India.
