Overview

The sub-compact SUV segment has witnessed countless attempts in past 5 years and the latest to join the bandwagon is the Mahindra XUV300. The new member in the Mahindra portfolio is the rebadged version of Korean counterpart SsangYong Tivoli. The company has been experimenting with new technologies in its vehicles lately and the XUV300 is one such loaded up to the brim with some segment first goodies. After the success of XUV500 and Scorpio, this is another attempt by Mahindra to take some share of pie in one of the hottest auto segments in India. With elegant and oomph styling, oodles of comfort inside, loaded with top notch safety aspects and tried and test engines, XUV300 will be vying against the likes of popular Vitara Brezza and Nexon in the segment.
The new Mahindra XUV300 is a rebadged version of SsangYong’s Tivoli, the Korean sibling. Thus, the car shares it basic structure with the Tivoli. However, there are some unique elements which gives XUV300 its own identity. For instance, the overall length of the car has been reduced by slicing some area of the boot to crop the length by 200mm from 4195mm. So, when the car is seen from the sides, it looks slightly different. The ground clearance has also been increased looking at the Indian driving conditions.
Talking from the design and styling perspective, the baby SUV from Mahindra XUV300 looks similar to the Tivoli but the company claims that every panel is altered to make it look different. The front fascia is a bit more aggressive despite being tidier. The thin signature grille with horizontally stacked chrome slots reminds us of sibling XUV500. The swept back headlamps flare out heading towards the sides with the sharp looking LED DRLs giving the car a unique look. The side profile is reminiscent to Hyundai Creta but that’s not a bad thing at all. The car gets sporty 17-inch diamond cut alloy wheels which further enhance the premium and athletic appearance.
At the rear, the car retains the rugged and premium looks continued from the front. Credit for this goes to wide derriere and high-set boomerang shaped tail lamps featuring suave LED elements giving a hint of Hyundai Elite i20. And not to forget, the rear part looks completely different from the Korean counterpart. In terms of dimensions, the XUV300 measures 3995mm in length, 1821mm in width, 1627mm in height while the wheelbase stands at 2600mm. The XUV300 is being offered in 8 different colour options viz. Pearl White, Sunburst Orange, Aquamarine, Dual-Tone Aquamarine, Dual-Tone Red Rage, Napoli Black, Red Rage and D'Sat Silver.
In terms of interiors, the car gives you a feeling of more premiumness than the elder bro XUV500. The dual-tone theme is befitting as well as welcoming. The seats have been adorned in leatherette and uses lighter colours to give you the feeling of sitting in a car segment above. The seats have firm cushioning for the side bolstering in order to give nice support in corners. The steering wheel with mounted controls has been given smart touches and is decorated with gunmetal grey switchgear. The instrument cluster is simple and easy to read with all the vital information of the vehicle on the go.
The car also get height adjustable driver seat as well as tilt adjustable steering to find the appropriate driving position. The front view of the road is also confidence inspiring irrespective whether the driver and co-passengers are tall or small. In terms of space, the second reasonably accepts three occupants with enough knee and head room. The boot space during the transition from Tivoli has suffered a lot with only 260L of space. However, the inclusion of 60:40 rear seat split will give some relief as far as storing large baggage is concerned.
Further, the car comes with a few segment first goodies such as dual-zone climate control and leatherette seat. The XUV300 also get 7-inch touchscreen infotainment powered by Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The infotainment also comes with inbuilt navigation as well as features such as Smart Watch connectivity, Bluetooth, USB and Aux-In. The feeds from the camera can also display on the same screen. Other comfort features include push engine start/stop button, electrically adjustable ORVMs, auto-dimming IRVM, rain sensing wipers and automatic headlamps.
Mahindra has fully loaded with car with safety aspects including some of class leading features. The XUV300 comes equipped with dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, corner braking control, speed sensing auto door lock and ISOFIX child mount anchorage as standard fitment. Apart from these, the top variants gets 7 airbags, ESP with roll-over mitigation, hill hold assist, front and rear parking sensors, reverse parking camera, and front and rear fog lamps among others.
Talking about the specifications, the compact SUV get its power from petrol and diesel engine options. The 1.5L diesel engine shared from Marazzo makes 115PS and 300Nm of torque while the petrol one gets the turbocharged 1.2L unit that pumps out 110PS and 200Nm of torque. Both the engines come mated to 6-speed manual transmission while the AMT version will follow soon. In terms of fuel efficiency, where the diesel one returns kmpl, the petrol unit on the other hand, delivers ARAI mileage of kmpl.
Mahindra has cleverly priced the SUV that goes in-line with the immediate rivals. The price of XUV300 starts at Rs. 6.99 lakhs and goes up to Rs. 11.99 lakh for the top of the line model. Mahindra XUV300 competes against Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Ford EcoSport and Tata Nexon in the segment.

Interior

Step inside the cabin, take a seat and you will feel a sense of underwhelm as here you will find this vehicle more like Tivoli. No, the XUV300 is not a cramped SUV but looking from the driver’s perspective, it is right to some extent as the footwell is a bit confined, lacking space for the dead pedal. But on the other hand, there is enough room for driver and co-passenger at the front. And at the back, there is enough width to house three passengers with ease for short journeys. However, we would have expected more from the car.
The cramped space is due to the invading of the dashboard into the cabin that chucks a good amount of space. And we would like to mention that this is the same dashboard which was designed for the Korean counterpart Tivoli in the year 2015. This definitely looks bleak and old since many things have changed during these years. Today, when carmakers are struggling for minimalism inside, the XUV300 follows traits of extended versions of family when it comes to center console design.
So instead of revising the interiors thoroughly, the carmaker has carried forward a lot of bits including dashboard, switchgears and steering from Tivoli. EcoSport and Nexon look far more appealing as well as the all the things come easy on driver’s hands. Things like orange backlight for the dual-zone automatic climate control buttons of which are narrow to control and the small 3.5-inch black and white multi-information display are slightly out of place in a rich cabin. Another eyesore is the centre armrest and the gear lever being slightly tall. Likewise, the flimsy wiper and the headlamps stalks as well as the spongy action of the door locks lowers the experience.
However, the quality of parts is good with the switches especially that of power windows giving superior feel while operating them. Moreover, the first in class leatherette upholstery and even the sense of holding the steering wheel is all refreshing and premium. Further, in terms of storage, the door pockets are big enough and there are plenty of cubbyholes, a glovebox, center console box and a wide storage shelf above it. Moreover, you get unique seatback pockets which are actually elastic bands but they aren’t practical.
There are some of the ergonomics issues in terms of space as well. As mentioned above, the footwells could have extra width and tall people would perhaps be missing the dead pedal. At the rear, where cars segment below are offering rear ac vents and charging sockets, the lack of these aspects raises eyebrows. As far as boot is concerned, it is too low, even small hatchbacks such as Kwid have more luggage room than XUV300. Even there is no way you can snug in big trolley-bag in a vertical position. You are forced to place it in a horizontal position which eats away most of the space the trunk has to offer. However, there is an option of folding the rear seats in 60:40 ratio, so it would give relief right to some extent. The loading lip is also too high for an SUV.
But there is silver lining when it comes to number of equipment this car gets. The car gets 7-inch touchscreen infotainment unit powered by Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The unit also gets inbuilt navigation and Bluetooth, USB, Aux-In and Smart Watch connectivity. Further, the feeds from the reverse camera can be seen on the same screen. Other equipment in the car include heated outside rear-view mirrors, cruise control, electrically adjustable ORVMs, automatic headlamps, rain sensing wipers, push engine start/stop button and auto-dimming IRVM.
Then there is twin-pod MID instrument cluster which shows several vital info including speedometer, tachometer, trip computer, gear change indicator, fuel consumption, distance to empty as well as tyre direction indicator. Overall, there are some hits and misses in this car but if you are besotted by the styling of this car, then you would learn to live with those misses.

Exterior

Talking about the exterior design and styling, at first glance this car will remind you of Korean sibling SsangYong Tivoli since the resemblance is strong, especially from the front. But there are enough elements to give this car a persona of its own. The signature grille with horizontally stacked chrome, the light angular projector headlights, the daytime running LEDs and faux skid plate, all lends a familiar figure to the car. But mind you, it has got SUV elements that is ensured from the squared off bonnet which is set high off the ground.
With 180mm, you can rest assure to face anything that comes in front of the SUV. The outer boundaries of the headlamps run down towards the fog lamps, a design seems to be inspired by cheetah’s face. Further, the bumper at the front with lower intake looks pretty huge and gives the car the needed SUV look.
Other robust design elements include roof rails and solid-looking matte black cladding. Come to the sides and there isn’t special going on and that seems to be in favour of this car. Why? Because the clean and contoured surfaces gives it European looks. The floating roof effect comes from the black decoration on the A and C pillars which is further emphasized by contrast-coloured roof. Moreover, the large 17-inch machine-cut alloy wheels which are smartly done, give the car a more macho look with their sharp cut with chrome and black finishing. The flared wheel arches are probably done to make it look like cheetah’s haunches.
Move to the rear and the car looks like a hatchback. And if it’s not exaggeration, then its look similar to Elite i20 with the same boomerang shaped tail lamps and large bumper, all have been gracefully kept simple. The windscreen has been topped by spoiler while the faux skid plate finishes the design neatly.

Mileage Running Cost

The carmaker takes the engines from the Marazzo and they are meant for producing good fuel efficiency. Where the 1.2L turbo petrol engine delivers 17kmpl, the 1.5L diesel engine on the other hand, is good for making 20kmpl. There are no automatic variants at the moment, but they would surely be fuel efficient looking at what rivals are offering.

Comfort Suspension

As opposed to expectations, the car doesn’t roll that much when chucked hard at turns. And the credit for this goes to wide front and rear track of the car. The steering of the SUV is also direct without any moments of second thought. Out of the three modes mentioned above, the best bet is to drive the car in the Comfort mode as it is capable enough to neutralize the efforts of steering without making any impact on the response. If you are driving in the Sport mode, the car feels unnecessarily heavy. And the Normal one is the mode you can use in daily commuting.
On the highways, mostly the ride is absolutely flat. When you encounter an imperfection at high speeds, the cabin settles down almost instantly. If you are sitting at the back, here also nothing causes uneasiness over longer journeys. Moreover, when it comes to road undulations in the cities, the car comes with flying colours once again.
The potholes and rough ruts come easy and the occupants do not feel anything, thanks to the monocoque suspension that makes the car feel composed at higher speeds and even on poor surfaces. The manner in which the suspension cut the impact of the potholes is also satisfactory.

Engine Performance

The XUV300 is being offered in both the petrol and diesel engine options. And this was indispensable especially when looking at the fact that Vitara Brezza comes only with the diesel engine option. The 1.5L diesel engine is good enough to produce 115PS and 300Nm of torque and the car really makes the scenery blur. It seems like this engine was only meant for fun-to-drive on thoroughfares. Every time you ask for torque while cruising and the car is willing to serve on your command, you just have to press the throttle a bit to move quickly.
The motor is mated to 6-speed manual transmission, a first in its segment. And yes, this is the same powertrain and transmission working in Marazzo. But the difference is the MPV uses Variable Geometry Turbocharging (VGT) technology, the SUV on the other hand, sports e-VGT. What it means is you will feel the turbo kicking in with slightly more zest. The gear ratios have also been modified in order to offer fun-to-drive experience.
Another area where this baby XUV is unique compared to MPV sibling is the NVH level. As with other low cost SUVs of Mahindra, the diesel clatter is irritating and vibration is more evident on the steering, door pads and footboard of the XUV300. This should have been taken care of as Mahindra is pricing this car in the premium range. And although it won’t affect driving on open stretches, it would be a pain in city premises where you have to move slowly. Reason? When the turbo isn’t performing well under the 1500rpm, the car almost denies making progress unless you plan to downshift. And this thing is more problematic while you are on incline as you would want for down shift than expected. This is something you would be experiencing frequently as Indian roads are full of speed breakers.
On the other hand, you can treat third gear like an automatic transmission as at this position you can very well go down below 20kmph and accelerate cleanly to three digit speeds without any sign of complaint. And when we are talking about transmission, it is really disappointing to see that there is no automatic transmission on offer, however Mahindra has promised that it will soon launch the car with an automatic transmission. So you just have to wait for a while.
The petrol engine on the other hand, is the 1.2L unit which pumps out 110PS and 200Nm of torque. The car with this engine is undoubtedly, peppier to drive and overtaking requires little effort. It is exciting to drive in the cities with light clutch and the gear shifting is also smooth. The engine doesn’t feel lethargic as it pumps out more power than Brezza and come equals to Nexon. But no matter the engine is, you will feel confident driving the car. Thanks to the steering as well as three different modes Normal, Comfort and Sport which alter the dynamics accordingly.

Braking Safety

The brakes in the car provide adequate bite as well as give safe and secure feeling while slowing down. The disc brakes are standard which makes you really capable of tackling corners while shedding speed appropriately on time. The car remains rock steady without immersing down while stomping the brake pedal.
In terms of safety, the car gets dual front airbags, anti-lock braking system (ABS) with electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD) corner brake control, ISOFIX child mount anchorage and speed sensing auto door lock as standard. Move on to the variant line-up and you will get additional five airbags, hill hold assist, front and rear parking sensors, reverse parking camera and front and rear fog lamps. The car also gets ESP based features such as roll-over mitigation, traction control, hill start assist and brake fade compensation.
