Mahindra has issued a recall for certain units of the XUV300 for a possible suspension related issue. The affected units are said to be manufactured before 19 May 2019 and Mahindra will contact the owners of the affected units, inspect their XUV300 and replace the faulty part free of cost. Meanwhile, a more powerful version of the XUV300 as well as a new BS6 XUV500 has been spied testing, suggesting an imminent launch. Key rivals of the XUV300 include the Hyundai Venue, Ford EcoSport, Tata Nexon, Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza and the recently unveiled Toyota Raize, if it comes to India.

Although the recall has to do with a faulty suspension component, the number of vehicles involved is still unknown.

Apart from that, Mahindra will also individually contact the owners of the affected vehicles and resolve the issue at the earliest. 

The XUV300 was launched in India in February and it's been around eight months since the Brezza-rival has been on sale. The sub-4m SUV attracted over 26,000 bookings in a span of three months and has sold in excess of 30,000 units since its introduction. The SUV comes with the option of two powertrains: a 1.2-litre turbo-petrol mated to a 6-speed MT and a 1.5-litre diesel that comes paired with either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed AMT.

The XUV300 is currently priced from Rs 8.1 lakh to Rs 12.69 lakh (ex-showroom) across eight variants. In other news, the 2020 TUV300 was spied on test with a fair bit of camouflage.
