The installation, though, is quite easy and can be a DIY. I did not want to take the risk and therefore install it through the service center as there is cutting required (inner side) of the roof rails to install the mounting brackets.

Dear Team-BHP,

I have been following the Mahindra XUV700 reviews on Team-BHP very closely. It’s now my routine to refresh the page and read all the contents written by the members on the Mahindra XUV700.

I own an XUV700 AX7L P Automatic. I had booked it on October 8, 2020 (was unable to book it on October 7, 2021 due to a website crash), but got the price protection confirmation and got delivery of the vehicle in November 2021. I sold my Maruti Dzire Petrol Manual (2011) in November 2021 through Spinny.

There were many discussions on fixing the roof cross bar on the Mahindra XUV700 on Team-BHP. I was also looking for the same on the internet, but had no success. The M2all website of Mahindra says, “This Product might interfere in the functioning of the sky roof for AX5 and AX7 vehicle variants. Therefore, we do not recommend for AX5 and AX7 variants.”

I tried to place the order through M2all, but cancelled it before making the online payment. I received a call from M2all customer services within an hour. While discussing with them, they told me that it can be installed on AX7 and there would not be any issue.

This give me some confidence and I took the plunge. I purchased the roof cross bar from NBS Mahindra – Andheri, Mumbai, and installed it through their service center in Goregaon, Mumbai. The cost of the roof cross bar was Rs. 4,600 and installation charges were Rs. 531 (including taxes).

The installation, though, is quite easy and can be a DIY. I did not want to take the risk and therefore install it through the service center as there is cutting required (inner side) of the roof rails to install the mounting brackets. For NBS Mahindra too, it was the first such installation.

There are three options to install the cross bar on the roof rails – front, middle and at the end, near the shark fin antenna. I assume that the front might be fixed and the rear mounting brackets may be shifted to middle/end. The silver liner on the roof rails is removable.

  • Step 1: Remove the silver liner on the roof rails with the help of a screw driver
  • Step 2: Cut the inner side of the roof rails to mount the brackets
  • Step 3: Install the mounting brackets as per the requirement (front – middle – end)
  • Step 4: Install the silver liner on the roof rail
  • Step 5: Install the roof cross bar on the brackets (as per front and rear markings)

Also, there are no issues in the opening and closing of the sky roof. There is a sufficient gap between the glass and the crossbar.

The quality of the roof cross bar is good and it enhances the look of the vehicle (in my view). It has a rated carrying capacity up to 70 kg. It’s lightweight and while driving, no noise or vibrations are felt.

Hope this helps.
