Mahindra last year launched their all-new twin peak logo at the launch of XUV700 SUV. During the launch, they had also mentioned that all other SUVs in their portfolio would be getting the new logo. We saw the new logo in the all-new Scorpio N, Scorpio Classic, Bolero Neo and also the current generation Mahindra Thar. Mahindra is adding the new logo to almost all their SUVs and the latest one to reach dealership is XUV300 compact SUV. Mahindra XUV300 is a compact SUV that competes with cars like Tata Nexon, Hyundai Venue, Kia Sonet, Nissan Magnite and Maruti Brezza.
The video has been uploaded by Yash9w on their YouTube channel. In this video, the vlogger talks about all the changes that are there in the 2022 version of Mahindra XUV300. The vlogger starts with the exterior and it looks like Mahindra has not changed anything about the SUV except the logo. The SUV seen here in the video is actually the top-end W8(O) which comes loaded with features.
The SUV comes with drop down LED DRLs which meet the fog lamps on the bumper, sharp looking projector headlamps and sleek grille with new Mahindra logo. The XUV300 gets a sporty looking dual-tone alloy wheel with new Mahindra logo in the center. These are 16 inch alloy wheels. The black claddings around the wheel arch and the lower part of the car has been retained and this gives it a muscular or SUVish look.
The car comes with LED tail lamps with muscular looking design. The new Mahindra logo is seen on the tail gate as well. The front and rear get prking sensors and there is a reverse parking camera as well. In terms of dimensions, the XUV300 remains the same and boot space in this car is less most of the other SUVs in the competition. Moving in, Mahindra is still offering a dual-tone cabin. There are soft touch pads on the door and there are chrome finished inner door handles.
The instrument cluster remains the same with a digital MID in the center. The center cosole design looks outdated as before and there are buttons to control the steering and the instrument cluster on it. It offers beige coloured leatherette upholstery and the car also gets features like touchscreen infotainment system that supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The car also gets features like a multi-function steering wheel with cruise control and audio controls. The new Mahindra logo can be seen on the steering wheel as well.
The car also gets electric sunroof and auto-dimming IRVM which is not offered in cars like XUV700 and Scorpio N. Mahindra XUV300 is available with both petrol and diesel engine options. The diesel verison is powered by a 1.5 litre turbocharged engine that generates 120 Ps and 300 Nm of peak torque. The petrol version of XUV300 uses a 1.2 litre turbocharged engine that generates 110 Ps and 200 Nm of peak torque. Both petrol and diesel engine options are offered with manual and an AMT gearbox option.
