Mahindra XUV 300 SUV India launch highlights: W4 petrol variant to start at Rs 7,90,000

The Mahindra XUV 300 is expected to rival the likes of the Suzuki Vitara Brezza and the Tata Nexon.

Mahindra announced the launch of the XUV 300 SUV in January this year to take the fight to established rivals like the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza and the Tata Nexon.

Being one of the most awaited SUVs of 2019, reports suggest that XUV 300 will be offered in two engine options — 1.2-litre turbo petrol producing 200 Nm of peak torque and 300 Nm, 1.5-litre diesel engine we saw on the Mahindra Marazzo.

The first launch phase of the new compact SUV will feature only a six-speed manual transmission option along with a front-wheel drivetrain. There's no official word on an automatic arriving anytime soon, but Mahindra is expected to launch one over the next few months.

Similar to its elder sibling, the XUV 500, the XUV 300 will be offered in four variants with the same nomenclature to avoid any confusion — W4, W6, W8 and W8.

    XUV300 Design

    The XUV300 has a mature design for the most part. The most striking feature up front is the LED light signature. These DRLs rise up to the headlamps which too have a nice upward sweep and merge cleanly with the slim grille. The suspension is soft and well damped to absorb most road imperfections but an underlying tautness reveals itself around corners.
