Mahindra XUV700 Vs Hyundai Creta, Extensive Comparison!

The XUV700 has finally launched and it has left everyone stunned. The glimpse of the pricing that Mahindra has given us looks very aggressive. The XUV is definitely going to give cars like the Creta, Seltos, Harrier, MG Hector, Tata Safari and the Hyundai Alcazar a cut-throat competition. Let’s take a look at the comparison between the Mahindra XUV700 and the Hyundai Creta.

  1. Exterior Design

The BS6 version of the Creta had a sort of unconventional design language, as compared to the previous one. However, people still loved it. For those who didn’t, they’ve gotten used to it. The XUV700 carries on the design from the much loved XUV500. Mahindra has made it Bigger, Bolder and Sharper with the latest generation. As compared to the Creta, the XUV stands higher up with 18 inch alloys, giving it a much better road presence. As we always say, looks are subjective. For someone who wants a higher, SUV like position, the XUV700 is the way to go. The Creta is a better option for someone looking for a more urban, compact design.

From the small glimpses that we got from the launch of the XUV700, the interior looks stellar! The entire layout of the driver’s cockpit elevates the entire aesthetic appeal. It also gets the option of a 5 seater or a 7 seater configuration. The Creta has an all black interior which also looks pretty good. Accents like the flat bottom steering and red stitching on the Turbo Variant also show good attention to detail. Now, since the XUV700 is much bigger in size, it will inevitably have more cabin space than the Creta.
