Mahindra XUV300 has finally hit the Indian market and it is getting all the bells and whistles because of its segment-first features. The baby XUV has six color options and four variants. The newly launched SUV is available at a price starting from Rs. 7.90 lakh. The company is also planning to release an automatic option for the engine options in the existing SUV. Also, Mahindra will be introducing an electric iteration of XUV300 most likely in 2020.

The different XUV300 colors are Dual-tone Aquamarine, Dual-tone Red Range, Pearl White, Napoli Black, Red Rage, D’Sat Silver, and Sunburst Orange. As per the XUV 300 interior photos, it is one of the best looking models from the carmaker.

If you are planning to buy a compact SUV this season, here are the 5 reasons why you should pick Mahindra XUV300.


Mahindra XUV300 is available in petrol as well as diesel variant. The fuel option variants will have 200Nm and 300Nm best-in-segment torque numbers for petrol and diesel respectively. A 1.2-L three-pot turbo-petrol engine will be powering the SUV. However, the engine will be able to tune out a maximum power of 108bhp and a 1.5-L that is also serving the Marazzo MVP. In the XUV300 diesel variant, a mild hybrid tech will also be introduced.


The Mahindra XUV300 price will fall between Rs. 8 lakh and Rs. 12 lakh. When you compare the features offered, with the other contenders like EcoSport, Nexon, and Maruti’s Vitara Brezza, you can see that because of the XUV300 price in India, it has the upper hand. This is because some of the features of Mahindra XUV300 are segment-first.

Segment-first features

Thanks to the segment-first features, this XUV car gives you the feel of a premium model. For safety measures, four-disc brakes and seven airbags are installed in the SUV. Rear parking sensors, ESP and ABS are also offered. Since the SUV is derived from the Tivoli platform, it provides premium quality while keeping in mind the comfort of the driver and the passengers. There is dual-zone climate control, a touchscreen infotainment system, and cruise control. Moving on to the exterior bits of Mahindra XUV300, the higher variants will have a 17-inch alloy and will be packed with LED daytime running lights, LED headlamps, and LED lamps in the rear hand packing the model as an upmarket product.


Built on the XUV platform, Mahindra XUV300 is said to be derived from the platform of Ssang Yong Tivoli. Although some are arguing that the SUV is just the homegrown carmaker’s rebadged Tivoli, the new images have shown that there are significant differences between the two in terms of design. Several additions and modifications have been made to please the Indian buyers. It seems rough and tough as Mahindra XUV500 was used to borrow the design cues.


Although not a segment-first feature, the sunroof puts the Mahindra XUV300 in the list of contenders to established rivals like Ford Ecosport and Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza. This can also be seen as an addition to the strength of the SUV to go up against such rivals. All the fitting and finishing of the cabin will be in accordance with the Mahindra Marazzo.
