Mahindra XUV300 Petrol Automatic Review – 9 Pros & 8 Cons

Mahindra XUV300 Petrol Automatic Pros:

  • Fast performance from the impressive turbo-petrol, despite the AMT
  • Surprisingly nice on the expressway, thanks to the power on tap, acceptable smoothness & good stability
  • Improved AMT with hill start assist, drive & reverse lockout, creep disable on door open…
  • Mature ride & handling package. Enjoyable high-speed behaviour
  • A truly premium crossover. Good build, quality & refinement levels
  • Great looking! Smart design has none of the usual Mahindra quirkiness
  • Cabin has enough space for 5. Quality-wise, the interior is more like a Hyundai
  • 5-star GNCAP rating & kit. 7 airbags, ESP, all-wheel disc brakes, TPMS, seatbelt reminders for all & more
  • Loaded to the gills with equipment (front parking sensors, sunroof, cruise control, auto headlamps & wipers etc.)

Mahindra XUV300 Petrol Automatic Cons:

  • The jerkiness at low speeds & in the lower gears can get very annoying!
  • AMT doesn’t suit a truly premium crossover like the XUV300
  • Expensive! Plus, for the same money, you can buy competitors with smoother ATs
  • 257-liter boot is the smallest in the segment. There are cheaper hatchbacks which have a larger boot
  • Concerns over niggles. TUV300 AMT owners went through a tough time
  • Mahindra’s after-sales service quality is a hit or miss. Remains a gamble
  • Sad audio system by current standards. The bass, especially, is poor
  • Some important features missing (parcel tray, rear air-con, steering reach adjustment etc)
