      This review was good. The XUV 300 is an impressive leap for Mahindra in terms of a compelling package. But, many compact crossovers in India all have the same styling elements: contrast roof, blacked out A and C pillars and a steep raked A pillar and a boxier back end. The Creta, Brezza, Nissan Kicks (sort of, except its back end isn't boxy) and now the XUV. They all look exactly the same. :(

      Very expensive product by Mahindra. Nothing much extra on offer compared to its rivals. Only real extra compared to its rivals is all four disc brakes.

      One thing we should understand is these cars are like ready made garment... We can't expect custom fitting like tailored garments.

      So there will be something which u will not like if any car checks 7 out of 10 mean really good rest 3 u got to live with it

      Just booked a W8 petrol today ... Believe me this is a perfect car in terms of what's being offered feature wise and performance wise... Initially I had booked a Creta S (d) and I had to cancel that for 300 ... The pearl white colour looks elegant in comparison to feeble Colors offered by creta and the drive quality of petrol engine is just awesome... The engine is silent and the test vehicle showed a mileage of 13 kmpl after driving it for 10 KM's ... A new vehicle can easily offer a 14 kmpl in city... Also cabin Is silent and interiors look upmarket... The onroad cost is 12.09 lakhs but its value for money keeping creta in perspective... The only disappointment is the boot space but it's a wise choice by Mahindra as sub 4 mtr spec has been rendered after a trade off between cabin space and boot... The cabin space is equal to creta.

      Xuv 300 is good but Mahindra u dint price sensibly
      Base petrol manual model is 7.90L, on that same price I will buy Tata Nexon Automatic XMA with more features....what's the point if both are 1.2L engine then y should I pay more?
      Width and height wise xuv300 is merely 1cm more than nexon....fuel efficiency is almost same to both cars, bhp is same...xuv300 torque is 30nm more than nexon that's it, still nexon petrol base is 6.4L and Mahindra starts 7.9L that's whooping 1.5L more, instead on WASTING MONEY ON XUV300 FOR SOME FEATURES WILL BUY AND FEED PETROL OF 1.5L to my Nexon,
      And don't forget Nexon got 4star rating in ncap crash test
      Mahindra disappointed once again not an Indian company much more European company

      +Animan Thakur yes bro but xuv300 least price model is 7.9L in that I can buy nexon with same features like in xuv300 least price model....I don't know about how xuv300 faired in ncap crash test, and regarding features some features are unnecessary and we hardly use it, what I see in my car is safety as top priority and mileage as I don't want my car to stand at my doorstep if I can't afford fuel as that is my opinion...yes what is like about xuv300 is it looks but boot space made me disappointed but heard lot about Mahindra suspension issue as I nvr owned it so can't predict just heard about it no offended

      XUV3OO has far better safety features at every level compared to the Nexon. The kind of features you get is amazing. Also base version of Nexon and XUV3OO are not the same. Mahindra's not the 'base version', it offers a lot more in its base version than does any of its competitors.

      I went to the showroom to see d car for real nd blve me it ws awsome. I ws planning to buy a suv bt ws stuck at EcoSport nd brezza. Bt aftr seeing dis car i ws amazed. Interior exterior all r well built. I ws going to book dis car bt after seeing the BOOTSPACE i cancelled it straight away. It has smaller boot than my i20. I20 has 280 wheras it ws having nly 265. I mean r u joking Mahindra?? 265lts for a compact suv? Whn ur rivals r well above 300. I hav cancelled d plan nd nw i wil choose between nissan kicks nd EcoSport.

      Good car but the 3 cyl petrol turbo is a let down. Refinement of 4 cyl engines will always be better.
