    Very powerful car. Has good road presence and very comfortable. 17 inch tiers are just beautiful. Boot space is a bit of a problem but all over this car is a beast. On highways this car drives like a boat ,130-140 kmph no problem . No body roll very stable . This is the best sub four meter car in the market. Very proud of mahindra for introducing this top quality car in India.

  • 5.0

    Satisfied with the cars performance and comfort till now (9 months ), Although service centres response is not satisfactory, e.g. poor fitting of accessories, number plate was also loose and vibrated, but the car is so good that i will tolerate them.

  • 5.0

    Being a tall person i have always admired cars which are good in ground clearance and offers the best interiors considering the price too. Xuv300 is the perfect car i have purchased, most astonishing feature giving a luxury feel are the LED light signature DRLs, the cabin is quite roomy with best in class headroom, kneeroom and lots of spaces to keep stuff.the 1.5 litre turbocharged engine delivers best in class power and recommend more of people to buy it
