The straight, razor-sharp streamlined body of the Mahindra XUV300 makes it stand out in the crowd, while the angular and aggressive stance makes it seem like a vehicle that is ready to go. The compact SUV from the Mahindra and Mahindra stable launched back in 2019 has not only set a place for itself in India but globally as well. The global NCAP rating of 5 stars alone can tell a lot about the build quality of the XUV300. Priced competitively and offered in both petrol and diesel versions the XUV300 is here to stay.
So, what has the new XUV300 got in store for us, let’s check out.
Mahindra XUV300 Exteriors
Borrowing design lines from its big brother the XUV500, the XUV300 has done a fine job of getting leaner and sharper. As mentioned earlier, the sharp lines infused with an aggressive fascia give the feeling of the vehicle being ready to go.
The XUV300’s front carries forward Mahindra’s iconic Cheetah-inspired SUV styling. The angular headlights and LED DRLs add further aggression to the front fascia while helping it stand out from the competition. The Cheetah’s agility has also been captured through the entire body with a sporty stance, 17-inch diamond cut alloy wheels, and muscular wheel arches.
The stylish eagle’s beak-inspired tail lights are not only visible but also stand out visually. The faux skid plates on both the front and the rear end give the vehicle the soft off-roading capabilities it was designed for. The dual tone roof also helps make an impressive design statement for the Mahindra XUV300.
