Moving on, the presenter then shows the side profile. Here as well, there are no prominent changes. It still gets 16-inch black steel rims, black-colored door handles, window trims, and ORVMs. As for the rear, it also remains the same with the connected LED taillights and a matte black lower bumper without any silver skid plate.

After showing the complete exterior, the vlogger then shows the interior of the car. It can be observed that it still remains the same. Now, being the base spec variant, it does not get many features. The Smart O variant misses out on a touchscreen infotainment system, speakers, touch-based HVAC controls, and others.

Looks are subjective, but a lot of people will prefer the aggressive yet classy appearance of the Nexon. The Mahindra XUV 3XO has a bit of an odd exterior design which may not be everyone’s cup of tea.

When it comes to features, the Mahindra XUV 3XO pips the Nexon Smart O variant in some aspects. The same is done by Nexon on some aspects as well. The Nexon comes with LED headlights and DRLs from the base variant. However, the XUV 3XO gets halogen headlights with no LED DRLs.
