Mahindra XUV300 Review

 

India is obsessed with SUVs, there’s no two ways about it. And to make these more accessible, automakers have been making them smaller and smaller, to the point where we now have SUVs with less space on the inside than some hatchbacks. Of these, the subcompact SUV segment is the most grossing, with high-volume cars like the Tata Nexon, Maruti Suzuki Brezza, and Hyundai Venue drawing crowds even from a segment above. Amidst these, a modest Mahindra XUV300 also survives in the market. It doesn’t have the freshest design, neither is it the largest of the lot. It lacks some key features too. But does it still warrant your attention? We take a look.

 

Mahindra XUV300 Pros and Cons 

 

ProsCons
Variety of refined engines on offerThe exterior looks out of proportion
Great AMT gearboxICE versions still don’t get the refreshed interiors that the XUV400 EV gets
Awarded a 5-star Global NCAP crash test ratingLacks some features that are a norm in the segment
The only car in the segment to get steering modesSteering modes change the weight of the steering, but it still lacks feedback

 

Mahindra XUV300 Exterior Design 

 

The XUV300 is an offspring of an already existing model that was part of the Ssangyong lineup when Mahindra purchased the moniker. But to fit it into the subcompact segment, Mahindra reduced its length by over 200 mm. The result was a small SUV with a relatively large bonnet, but no rear overhang, making it look a tad disproportionate. And what looked only disproportionate at the time of launch now looks dated as well, since it has received few updates over its life cycle. Despite this, the XUV300 does possess bold shoulder lines and a muscular bonnet, making the silhouette more SUVesque than some rivals like the Hyundai Venue. What it desperately needs though, is a thorough facelift.  

 

Mahindra XUV300 Interiors 

 

Inside, the story is similar, marked by a generation-old dashboard design that lacks modernity. However, the cabin does offer commendable space and comfort, with features like a sunroof enhancing the experience. The overall package might leave buyers craving for more, but the good news here is that the XUV400 EV — which shares most bits with the XUV300 — has recently received an update getting new interiors, and that should make its way to the 300 as well.

 

Mahindra XUV300 Comfort 

 

Seating in the XUV300 offers plenty of support and comfort, with the front row offering ample adjustability. Given that the XUV300 is based on a larger SUV that was sawed short, the space in the back row is also generous by segment standards, since most of the compromise has been made on boot space. Three abreast at the back will still be a squeeze, given its narrow width. Suspension tuning also focuses on delivering a smooth ride across varying terrains, effectively balancing comfort with performance. 

 

Mahindra XUV300 Performance and Handling

 

The Mahindra XUV300 has three engines on offer — two petrol units and a diesel mill. The diesel unit is a 1.5-litre 4-cylinder engine which puts out 115 bhp and 300 Nm torque. Performance on this variant is easy, with minimal turbo lag. However, what's most impressive about this engine is its refinement. While you can still hear it, vibrations are kept in check, and the engine note is not coarse. 

 

The two petrol powertrains on offer are derivatives of each other, with different tunes and turbochargers. The standard version puts out 109 bhp and 200 Nm, and while those figures are the lowest of the three, they’re still respectable and can easily be sufficient for someone who drives mostly in urban areas. The ‘TurboSport’ variant on the other hand puts out 129 bhp and 230 Nm of torque, delivering a good punch. On top of that, it also gets an ‘overboost’ function, which elevates the torque by a further 20 Nm for a short duration. 0-100 km/h in this variant takes as little as 10.8 seconds, making it the enthusiast’s pick, but Mahindra hasn’t retuned the suspension to offer better dynamics, which is a let-down. All the engines are offered with a 6-speed manual gearbox, and apart from the TurboSport, the other two engines also get the option of a 6-speed AMT automatic gearbox. The AMT gearbox is surprisingly smooth when compared to other AMTs in the market, and it is fast to react too, making it an easy pick for urban users.

Mahindra XUV300 Safety Features

 

Mahindra has not compromised in equipping the XUV300 with an array of safety features and a strong chassis that have contributed to its 5-star Global NCAP rating. Its safety suite includes six airbags, ABS with EBD, disc brakes on all four wheels, ESC, front parking sensors, and ISOFIX child seat mounts, ensuring peace of mind for its occupants. 

 

Mahindra XUV300 Technology and Infotainment

 

The XUV300’s infotainment system lacks the cutting-edge features and seamless connectivity options found in some competitors. While it does offer essential functionalities and a responsive interface, the absence of wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto — among other modern conveniences — dampens the overall user experience. However, this problem could also resolve itself once the XUV300 gets the XUV400 EV’s updated interiors.

 

Is the Mahindra XUV300 for You?

 

Given that the subcompact SUV segment is one of the most popular segments in the country, it also faces stiff competition. Its rivals — the Tata Nexon, Maruti Suzuki Brezza, Hyundai Venue, and Kia Sonet — have all received thorough updates, giving them great styling, tons of features, a variety of powertrains, and luxurious interiors. And for people who want something slightly low-slung, there’s also the Maruti Suzuki Fronx that is stealing buyers from this segment. Amongst these vehicles, the Mahindra XUV300 sits as a sub-par offering, wearing the oldest clothes. It does get some good fundamentals like punchy engines, spacious interiors, and some unique features like adjustable steering modes. However, what it desperately needs is a thorough makeover to bring it up to speed with its rivals.

The car has good performance and has enough space for the size of the car. Boot space should have been bigger.
