Mahindra is one of the largest manufacturer of utility vehicles in India. They have wide range of vehicles ranging from micro SUV like KUV100 Nxt to the luxurious full size SUV Altura G4. One of the interesting that Mahindra recently introduced in the Indian market was the XUV300 compact SUV. Looking at the popularity of the segment, it was a smart move from the brand. Mahindra recently launched their XUV300 compact SUV with a BS6 compliant petrol engine. The XUV300 competes with cars like Tata Nexon, Maruti Suzuki Brezza, Hyundai Venue and Ford EcoSport. Here we have a video showing a walkaround video of the all-new XUV300 BS6 version W8(O) trim.
The video starts by showing the exterior of the car. It shows the split, inverted ‘L’ shaped LED DRLs, projector type headlights, Mahidnra’s signature grille, front sensors and the faux skid plate at the front. side profile showcases the diamond cut dual tone alloy wheels and roof rails and at the rear it shows the LED tail lamps,rear defogger, rear wiper, spoiler, rear parking sensors and faux skid plate.
Then it shows the interiors of the XUV300. The XUV300 when launched was one of the most feature loaded car in it’s segment. It still has some features that others in the segment don’t get like, heated ORVMs, steering modes where the driver can switch between Normal, Comfort and Sport mode for better response from the steering. Dual zone climate control AC is also a feature that others in the segment don’t offer. Other than that, it gets a touchscreen infotainment system, electric sunroof, plush interiors and so on.
Nothing has changed both outside and inside of the BS6 version of the XUV300. The change however lies under the hood, where it gets an engine that is compliant to the upcoming emission norms. Only the petrol XUV300 gets a BS6 compliant engine. diesel BS6 will be launched in coming months. The 1.2 litre turbo petrol engine produces 115 Bhp and 200 Nm of torque.
Mahindra XUV300 is now the safest affordable SUV one can buy in India. It scored 5 star in Global NCAP crash test recently and it beat the Tata Nexon and Tata Altroz by achieving a better score in both adult and child protection. The XUV300 is the only Mahindra SUV to have scored so highly in the Global NCAP test, and this makes it an excellent choice for those looking for a safety-loaded car at a relatively affordable price tag.
