Mahindra’s new bet in the hotly contested subcompact SUV segment, the XUV300 is giving us all the premium class feels and our pockets are not upset about it! What better isn’t it??
No, we are not kidding there are many reasons why one should consider this metal magnet but let us list here 7 reasons why it is stealing the shows of automotive subcompact SUV segment–
First on the list, and also the most distinctive feature of the Mahindra XUV300 – its mileage. The manual petrol variant of this beast offers 17.0 kmpL on the road, and the diesel trim is claimed to rip 20 kmpL. A statement in itself, an example of class engineering that defines this kind of mileage on the road for a beast like this at the cost it is sold.
- Head-turning looks
A treat to eyes and awe to mind, XUV300’s cheetah inspired the design, and goodly body are sure to turn heads. You get sill cladding, door cladding, roof rails, body hued door handles, alloy wheels, silver upper and lower grilles, spoiler with HMSL and other such fitments.
It is available in brilliantly picked colors includingPearl White, D-Sat Silver, Red Rage, Aqua Marine, Sunburst Orange, and Napoli Black. The red rage and aquamarine models come with the dual-tone body – the roof is white in color that not only appeals aesthetically but also makes your car stand apart and oozes style and class.
XUV300 is extravagant feature loaded when we talk about convenience. Electrically controlled and heated ORVMs, sunroof, ISOFIX child seats, keyless entry, push button start, all four power windows, cruise control, 6-way adjustable driver’s seat, mood lighting, automatic temperature control, and leatherette upholstery, to name a few.
Acknowledging the fact that it comes with 7 occupant airbags, we can confidentlysay that it is the safest SUV in the Indian Market as of today. These airbags are optimally placed at knee, curtain, side and front positions. Safety is primary, and Mahindra understand and delivers all important safety features such as the ft lock reverse assist, and advanced braking systems, etc.
- A treat for the driver
A six-speed transmission and three steering modes varied according to weight (normal, comfort, andsport)
Entertainment is the most important consideration of any SUV, especially for the expected long runs. Except for the basic variant, W6, all models of XUV300 come with 7-inch capacitive, touchscreen infotainment unit with an inbuilt navigation system. All variants come with fournative speakers, W8 and W8 (O) also have a couple of tweezers for additional bass.
- Braking was never such a delight
Mahindra offers disc brakes in all four wheels of the XUV300 – a first in the segment and decidedlyupmarket feature. These disc brakes are aided with anti-lock braking system (ABS) and electronicbrake force distribution (EBD) technologies. These make it the easiest to handle vehicle in terrains,ice, and mildly sludgy areas.
