Mahindra Automotive is all set to launch the new XUV300 in India. The Mahindra XUV300 is a promising product and comes with a lot of segment-first equipment while also showcasing class-leading performance figures. It competes in one of the most competitive segments on the Indian automotive market — sub-four-metre compact-SUVs.
Bookings for the new Mahindra XUV300 is going strong and have crossed 4000 units in just around a month's time. Based on the SsangYong Tivoli, the XUV300 is mainly aimed to dethrone the current leader of its segment, the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza.
We have already driven the compact-SUV and were really impressed by it in terms of styling, performance and equipment levels. In case you wish to know more, check out our detailed Mahindra XUV300 review.
On the features front, the XUV300 comes with a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system that supports both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto; BlueSense smartwatch connectivity, seven airbags, all-wheel disc brakes, two-zone climate control and even a sunroof. The Mahindra XUV300 surely has an edge over its competitors.
In addition to this, we highly recommend that you check out these important facts and figures of the XUV300 (including top speed, mileage, seating capacity and more).
The Mahindra XUV 300 is available in both petrol and diesel choices. The 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine makes 110bhp at 5000rpm and 200Nm of torque from 2000rpm, while the diesel unit produces 115bhp at 3750rpm and 300Nm from as low as 1500rpm. Both engines come mated to a six-speed manual as standard. However, an automatic variant of the Mahindra XUV300 is currently in the plans.
As mentioned before, the Mahindra XUV300 competes in arguably the most active market segment, locking horns with the Tata Nexon, Ford EcoSport, Honda WR-V and of course, the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza.
The expected starting price of the XUV300 is in the range of Rs 9-10 lakh ex-showroom, but we'll get the clearer picture soon.
