It is not every day you buy a car and when you do, you must look well before you leap. But if you have ever driven a Mahindra SUV, you know you can make the jump.

With a perfect balance between versatility and safety, the XUV300 is a reliable addition to the family. Whether it is for Mom to taxi the little ones around, or Big Brother’s first car to take on the long road to university, this range offers peace of mind and ease of driving.

The Mahindra XUV300 is classified as a compact sport utility vehicle (SUV) which means that it is a smaller, lighter model than the larger XUV700. However, this is precisely what makes it so versatile: whether it is dirt or tar, the little car can do it! It roars with 200 Nm of torque and does not hold back for off-road driving either. With 180 mm of ground clearance, it tackles any farm road.

The XUV300 is available as a 1,2 ℓ turbo-powered petrol model or with a 1,5 ℓ turbo-powered diesel engine. Regardless of your choice, you will be satisfied with the vehicle’s stingy fuel consumption.

There is room for five occupants and the rear seats can be folded down to make more room for luggage.

Unparalleled safety on the road

The main motivation for many buyers to purchase a Mahindra XUV300 is its excellent NCAP safety rating. The 5-star rating was awarded because of the seven airbags: Side curtain airbags that protect both the front and rear occupants, front airbags, and knee protection airbags to protect the driver’s knees.

With control buttons on the steering wheel, you do not have to take your hands off the steering wheel – or your eyes off the road. In addition, the vehicle also boasts front parking sensors that guide you to a safe distance from any walled parking.

Competitive technology across the range

The XUV300 is chock-full of technology. Even at entry level, you do not have to trade in all the bells and whistles that can be found in every luxury car. Features such as the wheel positioning, auto-dimming mirror, a sunroof, and smart driving system make the vehicle pure fun.

Along with that, you can also expect driving comfort that suits such a fun vehicle. In the cabin, the driver and passengers can enjoy a quality sound system that surrounds the listener and dual-zone fully automatic temperature control. The driver’s seat can be adjusted in six directions. That way you can drive in optimal comfort. There are also additions such as the storage space inside the front armrest where you can hide important items.
