Brand new cars depreciate real fast, and here’s a telling example. This Mahindra XUV300 compact SUV is just 4 months old, and has only 5,000 kilometers on the odometer. Yet, it’s selling at Rs. 8.5 lakhs, which translates into savings of over Rs. 2.3 lakh over a brand new car. The current on-road price of a Mahindra XUV300 Diesel in W6 trim is Rs. 10.86 lakhs. The vehicle’s manufacturing month is March 2019, and it’s currently with its first owner. A transferable zero depreciation insurance is offered with this used SUV. The seller says that the condition of the SUV is pristine, and you can get in touch with him right here.
While the XUV300 is offered with both petrol and diesel engines, the example we have here is diesel powered. It gets a 1.5 liter-4 cylinder turbocharged diesel motor with 115 Bhp-200 Nm on tap. These outputs mean that the XUV300 is the most powerful vehicle in its class. A 6 speed manual gearbox drives the front wheels. Mahindra now offers a 6 speed AMT option with the diesel powered XUV300. As for features, the W6 trim comes equipped with twin airbags, ABS, seat belt reminder for all five passengers, speed alerts, ISOFIX child seat mounting points, reverse parking sensors, a reverse parking camera, automatic climate control, tilt adjustable steering, power adjustable wing mirrors, power steering, powered windows, rear wash wipe and a factory fitted stereo with Bluetooth, Aux and other key functions.
Introduced earlier this year, the Mahindra XUV300 is a sub-4 meter SUV that has turned out to be a big hit for the automaker. In fact, the XUV300 has beaten many other SUVs such as the Tata Nexon and Ford EcoSport in terms of monthly sales, and is currently behind the Hyundai Venue and Maruti Brezza as India’s 3rd largest selling sub-4 meter compact SUV. The petrol engine offered with this SUV is a 1.2 liter-3 cylinder turbocharged unit with 110 Bhp-200 Nm. The petrol motor gets a 6 speed manual gearbox as standard and Mahindra is yet to offer an AMT option with this engine.
On the inside, the XUV300 is larger and more spacious than its competitors thanks chiefly to its longer wheelbase of 2,600 mm. It does have a smaller boot though as most space from the longer whelebase has been utilized to offer great legroom for passengers on the back seat. So, the XUV300 comes across as one of the better chauffeur driven SUVs in its segment although it’s unlikely that such buyers would actually be opting for this SUV. To sum it up, this XUV300 Diesel is a powerful, spacious compact SUV that’s going cheap.
