Mahindra XUV 300 bookings have officially begun for an amount of Rs 20,000. The bookings for the XUV 300 are now available across all company dealerships across the country and online as well.
The Mahindra XUV 300 will be launched in the market on the 15th of February and has been confirmed to be priced in the range of Rs 8 -12 lakh, ex-showroom.
The XUV 300 is based on the Ssangyong Tivoli's X100 platform, which has been modified to fit within the sub-four-metre segment. In terms of design, the XUV 300 borrows certain cues from its larger sibling, the XUV500 and looks completely different from the Tivoli.
The modified Tivoli platform on the XUV 300 will offer the five-seater compact-SUV extra legroom for the rear passengers, due to its longer wheelbase (longest in its segment).
The Mahindra XUV 300 will be available in four variants — W4, W6, W8 and W8(O). All variants of the compact-SUV will come loaded with features, including the base 'W4' which was spotted recently.
Some of the standard features across all variants include airbags, ABS with EBD, disc brakes on all four wheels, LED headlamps and tail lights and all four power windows. The higher variants will further come with reverse parking camera/sensors, dual-zone climate control, 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and 17-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels. It also comes with class-leading seven airbags and a sunroof.
The mechanicals of the Mahindra XUV 300 has been confirmed along with the exact power and torque outputs. The Mahindra XUV 300 will come powered by a 1.2-litre turbo-petrol and the 1.5-litre diesel first seen on the Marazzo.
The petrol engine is said to churn out 200Nm of torque while the diesel unit will produce 121bhp and 300Nm of torque. Both engine options will be mated to a standard six-speed manual gearbox. An automatic transmission is also expected to be introduced at a later stage.
Veejay Ram Nakra, Chief of Sales & Marketing, M&M Ltd. stated, "The XUV300 is a very exciting & comprehensive package that will compete with SUVs in the Rs.8-12 Lakh (ex-showroom) price range. The XUV300 promises not just the most fun-to-drive performance in the segment, but also first-in-class hi-tech features & best-in-class safety."
Thoughts On The Mahindra XUV 300 Bookings
The Mahindra XUV 300 is the second rebranded Ssangyong product from the Indian carmaker, after the Alturas G4. Once launched in the Indian market, the Mahindra XUV 300 will rival the likes of the Maruti Vitara Brezza, Tata Nexon and the Ford EcoSport.
