Not only this, the best-in-class safety and performance features make this beauty the best choice on the roads. With the very competitive Mahindra XUV300 price in India, the beauty is all set to be rivalling against Tata Nexon, Ford Ecosport and Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza.





The new Mahindra XUV300 exterior portrays a front aggressive grille, chiselled body and an sturdy stance which demands respect on the road. Apparent are the striking LED daytime running lights, stylish dual-tone roof rails, striking 17-inch diamond cut alloy wheels, strong side cladding and unique LED taillamps, which fully meet the criteria to be qualified as an urban jungle, arrived in style.



The Mahindra XUV300 features a dual-tone dashboard, i.e., black and beige theme. It also offers ample knee room, ample spaced cabin measuring 1821 mm and a flat floor to accommodate 3 persons in the second row with ease. The Mahindra XUV300 interiors include a finely crafted leather-wrapped steering wheel with well-designed bolsters, gear knob, premium grey leatherette upholstery and an electric sunroof with anti-pinch which raises the luxury benchmark. For more convenience, there are steering-mounted phone and audio controls, height-adjustable front seat belts, adjustable boot floor, adjustable driver seats, and a 60:40 split 2nd row. This 5-seater beauty hosts the latest 7-inch infotainment system empowered with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto option to experience the plethora of entertainment and navigation details. Moreover, there is a push-button start/stop, auto-dimming IRVM and a dual-zone fully automatic temperature control for that perfect lavish suave when you are accustomed inside.


Engine & Transmission

Mahindra XUV300 gets two turbo-charged powertrains, where the petrol engine is powered by a 1.2 litre turbo petrol engine, which generates power of 110 bhp @ 5000 rpm and 200 nm @ 2000-3500 rpm of peak torque, whereas the diesel variant is powered by a 1.5 litre turbo engine, which generates a peak power of 115 bhp @ 3750 rpm and a max torque of 300 nm @ 1500-2500 rpm. The transmission comes mated to a 6-speed manual transmission or an AMT, which ensures better utilization of engine power and torque for better thrilling performance on the roads.


 Braking and Safety

The Mahindra XUV300 specifications include a total of 4 disc brakes for all the wheels. This beauty is presented with the best-in-class 7 airbags, including dual front, knee, side and curtain airbags, and front parking sensors for a better parking experience like never before. Alongside, there are Electronic stability program with hill assist start, ISOFIX, cornering braking control, dynamic steering torque, hydraulic brake assist, roll-over mitigation and traction control. Mandatory specs are the ABS, which comes along with EBD. The safety list doesn’t end here as the Mahindra XUV300 offers heated ORVMs for a better view, seat belt reminder for the driver and co-passenger, 3-point seatbelts on all seats, rear parking sensors and a rear camera.

Performance and Handling

The Mahindra XUV300 is designed for robust and power-packed performance on the roads. The beauty possesses ESP controls, which include dynamic steering torque, hydraulic brake assist, roll-over mitigation, traction control and hill start assist, which prevent the car to roll back while driving on slopes. Also, this car showcase the first-in-segment smart steering system. The steering system comprises 3 modes, namely Comfort, Normal and Sport. The Comfort mode enables you to glide through the city with ease and convenience while the sports mode empowers you to satisfy the need for speed, thrill and an adrenaline rush on the road.


The Mahindra XUV300 mileage is said to come around 12-16 Kmpl with the petrol engine and 22 Kmpl with the diesel engine.



The Mahindra XUV300 is a comfortable vehicle to be in for any drive be it long or short. The seats up front are large and heavily bolstered. They are also rather comfortable, even on long road trips. The seats are mounted a lot lower to the floor of the XUV300 compared to other SUVs in the segment, which is nice. This allows for a good range of seat heights, allowing drivers to tailor the seating position to their preferences. However, the lack of reach adjustment on the steering wheel is rather bothersome, especially for taller drivers. Another issue is the A-Pillar, which creates a blind spot which can be annoying in slow moving traffic.

The rear seats also are quite a comfortable place to be despite the lack of rear A/C vents. The legroom at the rear is quite good as are the knee and headroom. The rear seats offer a good amount of under-thigh support. The seats can easily seat three people thanks to the lack of the usual transmission tunnel hump in the floor’s centre at the rear. Those who prefer to have just two at the rear can fold down the central armrest which also hosts two cup holders. The XUV300 offers multiple cubby holes and storage spaces galore. The glove box is quite large as is the storage space under the driver’s armrest. The door pockets are large as well and can hold 1-litre water bottles with ease.





The new Mahindra XUV300 is a car to be cherished on the road. The car comes loaded with an exuberant styling quotient, groundbreaking safety features, and best-in-segment performance and handling, which will leave a long lasting impression on every buyer in India.

Things to keep in mind before Buying Mahindra XUV300



When buying a new car in general one must look for things like body panels that are out of line, or load bearing beams that seem to have been damaged. The next thing to check whether the paint is original or it has been repainted, a quick check under concealed plastic panels is a great way to check for unmatched paint. Another thing to check for is underbody rust in humid or sea adjacent areas.

A good way to check if the car has been rear-ended is by checking the boot. Flip open the spare wheel cover and remove the wheel completely. If the car was repaired after an accident the floor will have visible signs as the surface wouldn’t be smooth as it would in an undamaged car.

In the end, always remember to check for complete documentation including service records. Also, do check with the insurance company for any past claims, which will make you aware of the accidents the car has been involved in. Last but not the least, get the car checked from a trusted workshop before closing the deal.

    Ex-Showroom ₹7,95,000
    Mahindra's first ever premium compact SUV ticks all the right boxes. It looks great, has plenty of features and a strong diesel engine. It may not have the best interior fit and finish and the top-end variants may be pricey, but the XUV300 is an impressive product nonetheless.
