Mahindra officially launched their sub-4 meter SUV, the XUV 3XO, in the market last month. Just like other Mahindra products, the XUV 3XO is also priced very aggressively, and that is one of the reasons why it received an overwhelming response from customers. In fact, the SUV received over 50,000 bookings within 1 hour after the bookings were opened. The deliveries for the XUV 3XO will start on May 26, 2024. Since the car was launched, we have seen several render videos of modified XUV 3XOs. Here we have one such render image which even impressed Mahindra’s chief designer, Pratap Bose. He was so impressed that he wants the R&D chief to build one for him.

The image has been shared by Pratap Bose on his X profile. He posted the image on social media with the caption, “I’ve booked an all-new @MahindraXUV3XO for my mother, but this is the one I want for myself! What say @Velu_Mahindra, should we build one?”

In the image, we see a modified Mahindra XUV 3XO SUV. The render has been created by NSTREET DESIGNS. The car looks modified and is very different from the stock version. The first thing you would notice is the paint job. It gets a very different-looking shade of blue which gives the car a premium look.

The gloss black strip on the front grille with chrome inserts and Mahindra logo are the same as stock. We see a ring-type LED DRL around the projector headlamps. The C-shaped dual-function LED DRLs have been retained too. There are no silver-colored faux skid plates at the front. It is all finished in a matte black shade.

Coming to the side profile, the SUV gets flared wheel arch claddings. This has been intentionally done to accommodate the wider aftermarket wheels. The bronze-colored 5-spoke alloy wheels look good on the SUV, and the wheels are wrapped in low-profile tires. The SUV also looks lower than the stock version. The suspension setup might have been upgraded too.

The blacked-out wing mirrors with a 360-degree camera can all be seen here. The roof rail on this XUV 3XO is the same as stock; however, there is an additional aftermarket attachment on the roof. There is a Thule box on the roof which gives it an explorer vehicle-like vibe. The roof and the pillars of this SUV are blacked out, and the dual-tone theme really looks good on this SUV.

As this is a render image, we do not see how the rear of the SUV has been customized. The Mahindra XUV 3XO is available with a long list of features. It is actually a heavily revised or facelifted version of the XUV300 which was already on sale. The SUV is now available with a heavily revised cabin, fully digital instrument cluster, large touchscreen infotainment system, panoramic sunroof or “skyroof” as Mahindra likes to call it, and so on.

The XUV 3XO is available with three engine options. There are two turbo petrol and one diesel engine option. The turbocharged petrol engines are offered with a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed torque converter automatic transmission. The diesel version, on the other hand, gets a manual and an AMT gearbox option. The modified version of the XUV 3XO does look clean and sporty, and we hope to see similar looking modified versions soon after the deliveries start.
