Just noticed something in the thread subject, it should be XUV3OO (XUV3 double O) instead of XUV300 (XUV three hundred). The same is there in the XUV5OO official review thread title.

Its 300 and 500 (hundred) as per Mahindra website. Maybe the XUV500 started getting referred to as five double O by the public, since Mahindra SUVs names usually ends in O, like Bolero, Scorpio, Xylo, Marazzo. Or it might be James Bond effect! (double O 7)

At least on the bigger XUV, the pronunciation always seemed to have been double O's. In fact there was lot of emphasis on this by Mahindra itself. They even said it that way during the launch event.

Mahindra is doing a Honda, in xuv300 pricing. Honda is a master at killing capable products like Jazz and BRV by overpricing them.

Once a car gets labeled as too expensive for what it is, it never really recovers fully in the Indian market. Even after price cuts. So, unless M&M want only niche volumes, this price positioning is going to be suicidal.

If these are the prices Mahindra wanted, they should have launched the full sized Tivoli and competed against Creta. This cut down sub-4m version is too expensive.

Maruti and Tata will simply watch which features attract buyers the most and add them as top end models or options in the Brezza and Nexon ranges. There is large price point margin to do so because the xuv300 is so much more expensive.

Maruti anyway has the inhouse 1.5L diesel engine coming up that will surely go into Brezza in addition to Ciaz, Scross, and Ertiga. Though they may divert initial volumes to Ciaz and Ertiga. And the inhouse engine may also be cheaper at high volumes than buying the 1.3L from Fiat. I just hope Maruti improve the sound insulation on their cars. Road, Tyre, and outside noise make longer trips much more tiring.

Mahindra has officially mentioned that It will be written XUV500 but would be read as ex-you-vee-five-double-ooh.
