Mahindra is gearing up for the launch of the all-new XUV300 in India. The XUV300 (previously codenamed as S201) is Mahindra’s third sub-4 metre SUV in the country. Bookings for the XUV300 have already commenced ahead of the launch on 14 February. Ahead of the official launch, the XUV300 is already arriving at dealerships. Here is a detailed view of the top-spec W8 (O) trim that was spotted recently.
There will be four variants on offer at the time of launch - W4, W6, W8 and W8 (O) with six colour options - blue, red, orange, black, silver and white. The all-new Mahindra XUV300 will come loaded with many segment-first and best-in-class features. The W8 (O) trim seen here is loaded with features like seven airbags, sunroof, parking sensors, cruise control, and wireless charging. The seven airbags include two-front, two rear, curtain and a driver-side knee airbag. Mahindra has also added a first-in-segment dual-zone AC. The W8 (O) variant also sports multi-colour instrument cluster, leather upholstery, keyless start/stop, driver’s height adjust with adjustable front seatbelts, TPMS, a tyre position display, reverse camera, automatic headlamps and wipers, electric ORVMS, four speakers with two tweeters, and rear seat armrest.
The sub-4 metre SUV sits on 215/55 R17 section wheels with diamond cut alloys in the top-spec trim but the lower variants have a smaller 16-inch wheel size. Since it is based on the Ssangyong Tivoli, the XUV300 has the longest wheelbase in its segment. The boot space is around 256 litres, which can be extended to 620 litres with the seats folded down.
The seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system comes with in-built navigation, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility. The XUV300 also gets steering adjust with three modes. Apart from that, the XUV300 also has ample safety features such as ABS with EBD, ISOFIX child-seat mounts, three-pointed seatbelts, electronic stability program (ESP), and hill-hold assist as standard fitment across all variants. The top-spec model also has disc brakes on all four wheels.
When launched, the XUV300 will be offered with a choice of 1.2-litre petrol and 1.5-litre diesel engine option. Both will only be offered with a manual transmission, but we expect that an automatic option will be added at a later date. Mahindra has also hinted that the XUV300 will be priced in the range of Rs 8 lakhs to Rs 12 lakhs. It will go head-on against the likes of Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Ford EcoSport, Honda WR-V, and Tata Nexon.
