The Mahindra XUV300 is the second product from the Indian brand to share its platform with SsangYong; first one being the Mahindra Alturas G4.

The Mahindra XUV 300 is available in two engine formats: 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol and 1.5-litre diesel. The petrol engine makes 110bhp at 5000rpm and 200Nm of torque from 2000rpm. On the other hand, the diesel unit cranks out 115bhp at 3750rpm, plus a strong torque output of 300Nm from as low as 1500rpm. Both engines come mated only to a six-speed manual transmission.
