Review & Price Announced - First BS6 Diesel Mahindra XUV300
Yet another car-maker has decied to stick to diesel in the BS6 times and that car-maker is Mahindra. Mahindra is known for its diesel engines and tuning them to meet the BS6 standards was the right thing to do.
Thus Mahindra has introduced the BS6 Compliant XUV300 and the good news is that the prices have not been increased at all! The XUV300 BS6 diesel now is priced from Rs 8.69 lakh ex-showroom.
The top-end diesel AMT is Rs 12.7 lakh ex-showroom. Mahindra has not increased in the light of tougher competition coming in and already there but despite the competition, the XUV300 has done well for itself and has a loyal customer base. One more change, we will add that the mid-level AMT trim has been discontinued now and you have to go for the higher trim now.
The XUV300 diesel has no changes in the torque with 300Nm while bhp is slightly lower at 115 bhp but that is not a big change at all. In terms of design or even features the XUV300 remains the same and in that way the equipment list is very good and the XUV300 remains one of the most spacious compact SUVs that you can buy.
In terms of the petrol, alongside the current turbo engine, there would be a much faster and more powerful one coming soon and that will make the XUV300 quite an enthusiast choice with a fast turbo petrol.
Do note that the XUV300 has been one of the first Mahindra cars to go down the BS6 route and good news for buyers is that prices have not changed at all!
