I purchased Mahindra XUV300 W8(o), after waiting for it for almost a month and the buying experience has been good, though no surpises as I could get no discounts from the dealer , but got a good fast paper work at MGB Mobile, Anantapur, in Andhra Pradesh. The assosaries cost you bomb and fixing them too long a time spoling the enthusiasm to drive out new vehicle. I am writing this review after he first mandaory service and driving 2,000 KM in past 25 days since I am owning it.
Looks wise it is stunning and the acquamarine colour is quite attractive. It being my fourth car in 20 years, I looked forward to some driving comfort, good safety features. I am fully satisfied with the passenger space, though the boot space has been compromised for that. Also if you are migrating from a Sedan like Honda Amaze you will feel the pinch.
Now coming to the driving comfort, three modes of steering wheel makes very little difference. Driving on the highways is a sheer pleasure. Even at 140 KMPH the vehicle is stable and you do not feel the speed or no vibration is transferred into cabin.
The leg space for the driver is very cramped, which should have been definitely wider for a comfortable seating and longer driving experience. You have very little scope to spread your legs or keep knees apart. You will forced to keep your leg on the clutch pedal or inconviniently below it.
Now coming to the design, the worst experience for the driver is while turning to right - into a lane -- where you cannot see anything as the visibility is totally blocked by the large Rear View Mirror (its positioning) and very close to that is the front Pillar holding the windshield. These two together totally block your view. For a seasoned driver, it is Ok, but for a new driver it could be cause of concern. THE MAHINDRA XUV300 DESIGN TEAM needs to look into this aspect.
The 185 mm ground clearance is worthwhile and larger wheelbase does provide it the stability and the infotainment is enjoyable as its quality is good. Some smaller features I am myself yet to get used to as some of them are complicated. KMs to empty tank that changes dynamically depending on the traffic and driving conditions, is very useful on highways.
