Mahindra launched the XUV300 in India recently. The compact-SUV is offered in four trims, with the base 'W4' trim being priced at Rs 7.90 lakh while the top-spec 'W8 OPT' has a price tag of Rs 11.99 lakh. All prices are ex-showroom (India).
The XUV300 is part of the same X100 platform as the Ssanyong Tivoli, however, it has been modified to come under four-metres. In terms of design, the Mahindra XUV300 is completely different from the Tivoli, although it does borrow certain styling cues from its bigger sibling, the XUV500. The Mahindra XUV300 rivals the Maruti Vitara Brezza in the market — here is a detailed comparison between the two compact-SUV offerings in India.
The Mahindra XUV300 comes powered by two engine options; one petrol and one diesel. This includes 1.5-litre turbo petrol producing 110bhp and 200Nm of torque and 1.5-litre diesel churning out 115bhp and 300Nm of torque. Both engines are mated to a standard six-speed gearbox, powering the front wheels — read our detailed review here.
Mahindra is also working on an AMT transmission for the XUV300. The AMT gearbox has been spied testing multiple times and is expected to be introduced in the coming months.
The Mahindra XUV300 comes feature-packed, including the base variant. Some of the features on the XUV300: automatic projector headlamps, LED DRLs, LED tail lamps, electrically-adjustable ORVMs, push-button start/stop, 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, keyless entry, 17-inch alloy wheels, leather steering and gear knob, ambient lighting, two-zone climate control, electric sunroof, cruise control and heated ORVMs; among others — here is the split-up of all the variants, along with features available on each of them.
Safety features on the Mahindra XUV300 include dual airbags, ABD with EBD, disc brakes on all four wheels, hill-hold assist, rear parking camera/sensor, ISOFIX child-seat mounts, electronic stability control and front parking sensors, to name a few.
Mahindra is also said to be working on an all-electric version of the XUV300 for the Indian market as well. The Mahindra XUV300 electric is said to have a range of 400km and is expected to launch in India sometime in 2020.
