Mahindra’s much-awaited SUV, the Mahindra XUV700 is all set to debut on 14th August 2021. Now, the brand officially announces that, Mahindra XUV700 will be India’s first vehicle to offer integrated Alexa AI voice assistant.

The XUV700 also offers offline functionality for commands including controlling the sunroof and windows, switching to a USB or Bluetooth-connected smartphone, and adjusting the climate setting.
