Tested: Mahindra XUV300 is a big step forward for the brand

VERDICT

The Mahindra XUV300 has its fair share of quirks, but none of them are deal-breakers in my book. Sure, if you want a big boot then you might want to look elsewhere, but if style and luxury are your priorities then the XUV300 W8 models (which cost R304 999 in petrol guise and R324 999 as a diesel) actually offer a lot for the money. And if you’re happy sticking to the basics, the W6 versions make a good case for themselves too, starting at R249 999.

That is a good deal. Mahindra is doing really well, hopefully it's reflected in the sales.

Mahindra XUV300 Achieves Five Stars And Highest Combined #SaferCarsForIndia Result To Date - Global NCAP

771656

Global NCAP launches a new #SaferCarsForIndia crash test result today, with the welcome support of the FIA Foundation and Bloomberg Philanthropies.

The recently launched Mahindra XUV300 reaches a solid five stars for adult occupant protection and four stars for child occupant protection.

With the XUV300, Mahindra achieves the highest combined result in Global NCAP’s #SaferCarsForIndia crash tests to date with the highest score in both the adult and child protection categories.

The XUV300 has also shown the lowest level of intrusion and best side impact crashworthiness performance of any model tested so far.

Global NCAP chooses the entry-level version of each model.
David Ward, CEO and President, Global NCAP, said,

“Mahindra is the second Indian manufacturer to achieve Global NCAP’s coveted five star status and the XUV300 scores the highest combined crash test result of all the cars we’ve tested in India to date. We are delighted with this hugely positive outcome in our #SaferCarsForIndia campaign. It’s a vitally important win for Indian consumers and sets a safety challenge that every manufacturer must now be measured against.”
Saul Billingsley, Executive Director, FIA Foundation, said,

“In the space of just a few years Global NCAP’s #SaferCarsForIndia campaign has transformed both the public conversation and public policy on vehicle safety in India. Indian car makers are stepping up and taking responsibility for protecting their customers. This result from Mahindra proves that five star vehicle safety is possible and affordable, and we now expect all manufacturers to offer Indian consumers five star protection, as standard.”

Mahindra releases new cut-price XUV300 W4 in South Africa

Mahindra has lowered the entry point into its XUV300 compact SUV range with the release of the new W4 diesel model, which joins the existing W6 and W8 petrol and diesel derivatives.

Priced at R234 999, the W4 diesel costs a cool R40 000 less than the W6 diesel model, and it’s also R15 000 less expensive than the W6 petrol variant, which was previously the cheapest option in the XUV300 range at R249 999. It sort of begs the question, however, of why an even more affordable W4 petrol model is not in the pipeline. Mahindra SA says it currently has no plans to introduce such a model.

There’s no denying however, that the W4 diesel model comes in at a very attractive price that makes it one of the most affordable compact SUVs in South Africa.

But what is it missing in terms of spec?

As the pictures illustrate, part of the cost saving includes the fitment of 16-inch steel wheels instead of alloys, but this is also the case in the mid-range W6 model.

Versus the W6, however, the W4 loses the roof rails, door cladding and skid plates.

As for interior luxuries, it also makes do without the W6 model’s steering-mounted controls, height adjustable seat belts, electric tailgate release, follow-me-home lamps, corner braking control and panic braking signal.

It also downgrades from a 17.8cm infotainment system to an 8.9cm unit, in the process losing the W6’s built-in satnav and ‘Bluesense’ app. The five-year/90 000km service plan falls away too, although it is still available as an option.

"All in all, the W4 still packs most of the basic safety and luxury features, although you might want to invest in a set of alloy wheels as those are not the best looking steelies in the world."

Nah. They looks tops

Mahindra SA drops XUV300 starting price with new W4 base model

Mahindra South Africa has added a new W4 entry-level derivative to its XUV300 range, dropping the line-up’s starting price to R234 999.

As a reminder, at launch in May 2019, the local range kicked off at R249 999 for the petrol-powered W6 variant.

Interestingly, the new base XUV300 W4 draws its urge from the Indian firm’s 1,5-litre turbodiesel engine, which offers 86 kW and 300 N.m to the front axle via a six-speed manual gearbox. The W4 is some R40 000 cheaper than the W6 with the same powertrain.

A look through the specs reveals the W4 features two airbags (as opposed to the seven employed by the flagship W8), ABS with EBD and Isofix child-seat anchors.

But the newcomer also has to make do with 16-inch steel wheels (just like the W6 variants, and wrapped in 205/65 rubber), black (rather than silver) lower-grille trim and a 3,5-inch (rather than 7,0-inch) resistive touchscreen.

Mahindra has furthermore deleted the roof rails (which were purely cosmetic, anyway), the daytime running lights, the black side- and door cladding, the rear spoiler and the skid plates (front and rear).
