The XUV700 6-seater will feature captain seats in the second row instead of the 60:40 split bench seats in the other variants. The captain seats are not only expected to get individual armrests but could also make access to the 3rd row a lot more easier. The XUV700’s direct rival – the 2023 Tata Safari – is currently available with 6- and 7-seater options while the 2023 Harrier offers a 5-seater layout.
