Mahindra XUV 3XO Launched From 7.49 Lakh: All Details

Here’s everything to know about the XUV 300 facelift aka XUV 3XO

Mahindra XUV 3XO has been launched in India and is essentially a heavily updated version of the previous XUV 300. It’s got a lot of upgrades inside and out, and the starting price of the base variant is Rs. 7.49 lakh, and the top-of-the-line variant costs Rs. 15.49 lakh (Ex-Showroom). While design reworks are relatively less in number on the outside, the interior is now similar to that of the XUV400 electric SUV.

Exterior Design Changes

Much of the design does justice to the cues suggested by the previous teaser videos. If you might remember, the teasers managed to cleverly conceal the fascia of the car till launch. At debut, the front fascia seems to be the biggest area of controversy! It looks a bit too radical for a B2 segment Mahindra!

Key design highlights include a more angular nose, LED DRLs, new front bumper and revised headlamps. It comes with a two-part grille, a large central air intake, new 17-inch wheels, a redesigned tailgate with a full-width LED light bar and new tail lamps.

Courtesy of its revised design, the XUV 3XO is claimed to have slightly better capabilities than its predecessor. Below are the numbers:

Approach angle23.6 degrees
Departure angle39.6 degrees
Water wading depth350mm
Forward visibility23.7°
Boot capacity295 L (up to 364 L)

It is interesting to see how Mahindra tries desperately to connect the 3XO to the flagship XUV 700. We can see these tries in everything from the variant nomenclature to the press release saying ‘ Best-in-class forward visibility of 23.7°that matches with XUV 700’…

Mahindra XUV 3XO colours: There are a total of 7 exterior colours on offer: Citrine Yellow, Dune Dust, Nebula Blue, Deep Forest, Stealth Black and Everest White. Higher variants also offer the choice of dual-tone colourways.
