Mahindra XUV300 facelift: The market for compact sport utility vehicles is quite competitive. More than 6 vehicles in this class include extensive standard features. To be sure, Mahindra’s hand is showing that it hasn’t been able to win over customers. Therefore, an overhaul is required. Let’s discuss the updated Mahindra XUV300 then.
Mahindra XUV300 facelift – Why is it needed?
When compared to other vehicles on the market, the XUV300 falls short. Despite its modern conveniences like dual-zone climate control, a sunroof, front parking sensors, etc., the cabin design looks and feels old. The infotainment system’s user interface is outmoded and fails to live up to today’s expectations. Aside from this, the XUV300 is a fantastic vehicle thanks to its roomy cabin, 5 star GNCAP safety rating, powerful engine options, all new TurboSport engine, and more.
What is expected of it?
The XUV300 is Mahindra’s take on the SSanYongg Tivoli. It’s a little sport utility vehicle made in South Korea and exported to Europe. The European vehicle is loaded with amenities such as a 10.25-inch instrument cluster, adaptive cruise control, etc. Are there any plans for Mahindra to introduce these to the Indian market? As Mahindra was the previous owner of SsangYong, I find that unlikely. In any case, as of today, that period of ownership is over.
Mahindra XUV300 facelift – What could change?
When this happens, instead of relying on the Tivoli’s upgrades, Mahindra can implement its own. Adrenox, an infotainment system created in partnership between the Indian manufacturer and Bosch, is both effective and popular. Installation of a large touchscreen display has the potential to spruce up the cabin. Tan upholstery is to be expected, much like the Scorpio-N. The Kia Sonet and the Maruti Brezza are two fully-loaded rivals that may be beaten with the addition of ambient lighting, a superior sound system, and a 360-degree camera.
The XUV300 from Mahindra is equipped with a potent lineup of motors. The XUV300 TurboSport now comes standard with the company’s most potent 1.2-liter turbo petrol engine. Any changes made to the TurboSport should also be made to the regular model if this upgrade does really hit the market. Overall, the available powertrains won’t be changing.
Launch and Pricing
There may be an increase in cost due to the rumoured facelift’s potential exterior aesthetic changes, upgraded feature set, and revised interior. At present (as of this writing), the asking price for a brand new XUV300 is Rs. 9.78 Lakhs (on-road Mumbai). When do we plan to launch? The company has not made any public announcements about a redesign, but given its current standing in the market, it is essential.
