Mahindra has announced that it has received over 26,000 bookings for its new sub-4 metre SUV, the XUV300, since its launch on 14 February 2019. While over 70 per cent of the customers have opted for the top-spec variant of the SUV, the homegrown carmaker added that most of the bookings were for the petrol version. Based on the Ssangyong Tivoli, the XUV300 is available in four variants with two engine options. Here are the prices of each variant of the XUV300:

The XUV300 is available with a 1.2-litre turbo-petrol engine and a 1.5-litre diesel motor. The former produces 110PS of power and 200Nm of torque whereas the latter makes 115PS of power and 300Nm of torque. Both engines come mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. The XUV300 is not available with an automatic gearbox just yet. But considering the high demand for automatic cars, we expect Mahindra to launch an automatic variant soon.

As far as the features are concerned, the XUV300 boasts of first-in-class equipment like a dual zone climate control, heated ORVMs and steering modes. It also comes with 17-inch alloy wheels, a touchscreen infotainment with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and more. Safety features include seven airbags (highest in the segment), ABS with EBD, hill start assist, traction control, electronic stability program and front and rear parking sensors.

While the XUV300 is an allrounder thanks to its strong set of engines and features list, it still lags behind the segment leader, the Vitara Brezza, in terms of sales. This could be due to its premium pricing, which starts from Rs 7.90 lakh and goes up to Rs 12.14 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). The Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, on the other hand, is priced from Rs 7.68 lakh to Rs 10.65 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). Apart from the popular diesel-only Maruti, the Mahindra XUV300 also rivals the Ford Ecosport and the Tata Nexon. Soon, it will also have to contend with the upcoming Hyundai Venue, which is set to be launched on May 21 with an expected price tag of Rs 7.2 lakh to Rs 12 lakh (ex-showroom).
