An SUV from Mahindra & Mahindra (Mahindra & Mahindra) offers a strong claim to the most competitive compact SUV segment in India. The Mahindra XUV300 (Mahindra XUV300) sub-compact crossover car launched a year and a half ago was considered the best option in its segment. But the soon-to-be-launched Kia Sonet (Kia Sonnet) in the sub-4-meter (smaller than 4 meters) car segment has increased its competition.
Mahindra reduced the prices of its sub-4-meter SUV XUV 300 to boost sales. It is believed that other automobile companies may also reduce the price of their cars in this segment.
The petrol version of the XUV 300 SUV has come down in price, while many diesel variants have now become expensive. Mahindra XUV300 BS6 is getting a strong discount on purchase in the month of August. The price of the top model of the petrol model has been reduced by Rs 87,000. However, the prices of W4 and W6 diesel variants have been increased by 1000 and 20,000 thousand rupees respectively.
The base model of the SUV, the price of the W4 petrol variant, has been reduced by Rs 35,000. The ex-showroom price of the W4 petrol variant was Rs 8.3 lakh, which has come down to Rs 7.95 lakh (ex-showroom) after the price was reduced. The price of the entry-level W4 diesel variant has increased marginally by Rs 1,000 and now its ex-showroom price has increased to Rs 8.70 lakh.
Whereas, the W6 petrol variant has been reduced by Rs 17,000, after which the new price of its model has been reduced to Rs 8.98 lakh. The ex-showroom price of the W8 petrol variant has gone up to Rs 9.90 lakh, while earlier it was available at an ex-showroom price of Rs 10.60 lakh.
The price of the W6 diesel variant has increased from Rs 20,000 to Rs 9.70 lakh (ex-showroom).
The price of the W8 optional petrol trim has been cut by Rs 87,129, after which its ex-showroom price has been reduced to Rs 10.97 lakh.
The W8 diesel and W8 diesel optional trims have been reduced by Rs 20,000 and Rs 39,000 and now have ex-showroom prices of Rs 10.75 lakh and Rs 11.75 lakh respectively.
The Mahindra XUV 300 is offered with both petrol and diesel engines. The BS6 1.2-liter turbo-petrol unit generates 110PS of power and 170 Nm of torque and has a 6-speed manual transmission.
The Mahindra XUV 300 SUV competes in the Indian market with the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza (Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza), Tata Nexon (Tata Nexon), Ford EcoSport (Ford EcoSport) and Hyundai Venue (Hyundai Venue). However, the upcoming Nissan Magnite (Nissan Magnite) and Kia Sonet (Kia Sonnet) will also get tough competition.
