Mahindra XUV300 is one of the popular car in the sub-4 meter compact SUV segment. The XUV300 competes with cars like Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Tata Nexon, Hyundai Venue and Ford EcoSport in the segment. Mahindra XUV300 recently got a 5-star rating at the Global NCAP crash test and became the safest compact SUV in the segment. There is also a trend in the country where people have the tendency to customise their vehicle to make it look different from the others. Here we have a render video where the XUV300 is designed to look like a butch off-roader.
The video has been uploaded by Santik Automotive on their youtube channel. The video shows a Mahindra XUV300 in render artist’s imagination. The car has been completely redesigned by the artist to look like an off-roader. Starting from the front, the stock grille has been replaced with horizontal chrome strip inserted one. The Headlight design remain the same but the length of the DRL have been shortened.
The lower part of the bumper has been redesigned as it gets a wide air dam with Mahindra written in it. The lower part of the bumper gets silver inserts on both the sides and gets a LED bar at the bottom. There is also a lip spoiler installed which replaces the skid plate that was earlier present. There is also a snorkel and bonnet mirror for better visibility of the traffic behind.
On the side profile, it gets a chunkier all-terrain tyre with new set of alloy wheels. There is black cladding over the wheel arches and lower portion of the door that give it a rugged look. The roof has been blacked out including the roof rails and there are three LED lights mounted on the roof for better visibility at night. Aprt from that pretty much everything remains the same in XUV300.
The XUV300 is available in both petrol and diesel engine options. The petrol unit is a 1.2 litre turbo unit that generates 110 Bhp and 200 Nm of torque. The 1.5 litre turbo diesel unit generates 115 Bhp and 300 Nm of peak torque. Mahindra also has plans to launch XUV300 Sportz edition which will be powered by the 1.2 litre mStallion series petrol engine and will be more powerful than the regular XUV300. The XUV300 Sportz will become the most powerful car in its segment, and will actually make more power and torque than compact SUVs such as the Kia Seltos and Hyundai Creta.
