The Mahindra XUV 300 has a seating capacity (seats five) which impresses a lot. Mahindra unveiled the much-awaited production version of their S201 compact-SUV towards the end of 2018. There is no official news on the launch date of the Mahindra XUV 300, but it will happen in January 2019.
UPDATE: Mahindra Automotive has launched the XUV300 at a compelling starting price of Rs 7.90 lakh ex-showroom (India) — click here to know all the details (including variant-wise pricing).
Sources also suggest that certain dealerships have started taking unofficial bookings for the XUV 300. The booking amount ranges from Rs 7000 – 10,000, depending on dealership location.
Coming back to the seating capacity of the Mahindra XUV 300, it can seat five passengers with ease and comfort; thanks to its good wheelbase. In fact, at 2.6 metres, the Mahindra XUV 300 has the highest wheelbase in its class, while still remaining under four metres in overall length. The XUV 300 was recently spotted without any camouflage and those images give an idea about its seating capacity.
The new Mahindra XUV 300 is based on the SsangYong Tivoli five-seater SUV sold in global markets, but re-engineered keeping the Indian market in mind. The design is claimed to be 'Cheetah-inspired' like the XUV 500 —check out this teaser video to know more.
The XUV 300 also impresses in the equipment front. Features such as seven airbags, dual-zone climate control, sunroof and all-wheel disc brakes will certainly make it a compelling buy in the highly-competitive compact-SUV market of India.
The list of best-selling cars in India (2018) shows that the Maruti Vitara Brezza is the biggest selling SUV in India; followed by the Hyundai Creta. Post the launch of the XUV 300, things might get different on the sales chart, in a few months' time.
Mahindra is yet to reveal the entire specifications of the new XUV 300. However, we expect it to be powered by the same 1.5-litre diesel engine as on the Mahindra Marazzo MPV. In the Marazzo, it makes 121bhp and 320Nm, but the figures could be lower in the XUV 300. The transmission will most probably be a six-speed manual (an automatic variant might also come).
Thoughts On The New Mahindra XUV 300
The Mahindra XUV 300 will surely make a bold statement in the compact-SUV segment, which is currently dominated by the likes of the Maruti Vitara Brezza, Tata Nexon and the Ford EcoSport. In the coming days, there will be more clarity on what the XUV 300 has to offer and you can share with us your thoughts on it, in the comment section below.
