I feel the twin - DRL somehow looks odd. A quick paint job and the design looks a bit better.

Due to the kink over the rear wheel arches, I am able to visualise a KUV1OO when viewed from sides and it does not look good to me and I am unable to un-see it.

That's Mahindra trying to force the 'Cheetah inspired XUV' design language on to the Tivoli. Agree with you - looks quite unnecessary, along with the the dual front DRLs.

But looks like the engines, safety and features are the highlight here.

265 litres of boot space is simply unheard of in the segment. Even the hatchbacks like Polo/Punto /I20 have 280+ litres of a boot.

It looks like the backseat recline angle brings memories of the 2013 Skoda rapid backseat recline angle. I never liked it. It used to be quite upright. And 267 liters of boot space is a BIG bummer, in my opinion.

Here is how the baby cheetah looks besides its daddy the XUV500. It does look good overall. Fresh design and quite funky which will appeal to the urban crowd.

Had the opportunity to check out the XUV300 diesel W8 variant in flesh today.
What I liked:
* Fit and finish is neat and its built quite sturdy.
* Those 205 section 17 inch alloy wheels look well proportioned to the vehicle. Has all wheel disk brakes.
* Rear middle seat has a headrest, thankfully Mahindra has retained the middle headrest which is very important safety wise. The general unfortunate trend has been for OEMs to skip providing the mid headrest for Indian market (cost cutting) while offering the mid head rest on international markets.
* Feature wise looks very loaded, there is only manual gear option though. The sales person mentioned that Mahindra plans to release an electric version of the XUV300 soon and this version will anyway be practically like an automatic.

What I didn't like:
* Bootspace is extremely less, its on par with a small hatchback. Its definitely not a Creta/Duster competitor which has a more usable 400 liter boot, would be more of a Breeza competitor.
Mahindra has chopped the rear of the Sanyong Tivoli (which has a practical 423 Liter bootspace) and made it into the XUV300 with 265 liter boot, just to make it under sub-4 meter in length and save on tax. They could have been more broader thinking and offered the Tivoli as it is and the bigger boot would have secured a wider customer base. Anyway, it could still sell well in the B2 hatchback buyer segment if priced aggressively.
* Rear seating overall space is strictly on par with B2 hatchback category.
Overall a very neat offering from Mahindra A step in the right direction for the Indian market in terms of safety kit, features, fit and finish and overall build quality.

Indeed. One hopes that aftermarket options can help clean up the front and make it similar to that image.

A couple of pics from the twitter feed:

The bootspace close to a hatchback than a Nexon/WRV. No rear AC as well.

Without a third quarter glass and with a huge C pillar, the backseat might not be so airy. Will be better with the sunroof though.

But the strongest bet again, is also on the powerful 300Nm(D), 200Nm(P) Engines, 7 Airbag, ESP, hill-hold, disk brakes. Hope there is nothing short in the drivability, ride & handling areas.

The kink over the rear wheel arch is a direct design element from the Sangyong Tivoli.
The XUV 500 and Alturas G4 has similar kinks while the KUV has a slightly different version of the kink.

The DRLs are an attempt to bring the Cheetah element , while the kink in Sangyong designs have influenced multiple Mahindra models in this decade.

Tata and Mahindra were two manufacturers whose products I have had very little interest. I found them boring, incompetent, unreliable and the worst bit was they were bad handlers and underpowered. As a result I never read any threads about Mahindra or Tata.

The first change in this perception was with the Zest - it handled better than all its competitors and the interiors were good too. It actually was a better drivers car than its competitors.

Then came the Harrier - an actual experience on the ghats to Kotagiri sometime back made me sit up and take notice. The car was going at a pretty fast clip on the corners. Usually I don't have to put in an effort to overtake but I couldn't do it as casually here.

However with Mahindra, I still didn't bother - Mahindra would do the default trick that works in India - give lots of bells and whistles (otherwise known as features) to make up for lack of engineering skills in the engine and handling department - that is until i came to know about the power and torque of the XUV 300 - the XUV 300 is about the size of a Brezza and has 50% more torque and about 30% more power! It has even more torque than the bigger Creta. That should make this thing quite a performer - let's hope it also handles well.

It also doesn't look like a cross between a smiling lizard and a squat frog like the TUV.

However Korean horses are known to be weaker than German one's so let's hope this initial excitement doesn't turn out to be a false alarm.
