Biggest cabin space
The Mahindra XUV 300 offers the longest wheelbase in the segment. The wheelbase measuring 2,600mm in longer than the best-selling Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza too.

The Mahindra XUV 300 will get all-leather perforated seats making it comfortable for the occupants. It also gets features like a sunroof, which is also available with the Ford EcoSport. However, the size of the sunroof is much bigger in the Mahindra XUV 300. It will get an electric sunroof.

This is one of the features that are available only with high-end vehicles. This will be extremely useful for people who are travelling with families.
Most powerful engines
Mahindra is yet to formally announce the engines for the XUV 300. However, there are strong chances that the all-new XUV 300 gets powered by both petrol and diesel engine options. The petrol engine is expected to be the 1.2-litre turbocharged engine that generates around 140 PS while the diesel unit is expected to be the same as the 1.5-litre engine from the Mahindra Marazzo.
