After a lot of consideration about my next buy and test driving numerous vehicles from various segments, I finally booked the XUV 300 W8 Diesel (MT) in the Red Rage shade. The car impressed me especially with it's powerful engine and the overall butch looks. Personally for me, if the SUV term is associated with a vehicle, I would like to have the conventional boxy looks, a wide stance and the bonnet visible. XUV300 ticks all these boxes and certainly feels like a car from a segment above in terms of size (excluding the boot of course).

Awaiting the delivery next month.

Couching it in Corprate speak "value optimization" is even worse
and how do we trust that this XUV300 is still 5 rated or some cost cutting also has happened at the structure level in the name of "Value Optimization"

Has anyone penned an ownership review of the Petrol Xuv300? Can someone share a link if possible?

Just got delivery of my XUV300 W4 Diesel on the 27th. Went for a short drive of 380 km and it returned 17 kmpl.

Impressions :
1. Engine is super refined. No clatter or NVH inside the cabin.
2. Excellent cruiser . Pulls like a locomotive . Can overtake and pass like a leopard running away .
3. 6th gear 80 kmph =1500 rpm. 100 kmph= 2000rpm. 6th gear is like an automatic on highways.
4. Suspension is good at low speeds.

Cons :
1. Upgrading from a low GC excellent handling car like figo or fiesta, then stay away. High GC plus not so firm suspension means wavery handling at high speeds on expansion joints and rough roads.

2. Can't carry speeds into corners on state highways or even NH like I do in the figo.

3. The flat ride is missed.

4. There is a definite lack of engine braking. In the Figo, once you remove your foot from the accelerator, there is a quick drop in speeds from 120 kmph. Here , the car continues coasting at 120 kmph.

There are none in the Team BHP. You can join the Owners facebook group and can find some useful information over there.

Congrats on your new ride. I am in process of booking W4 diesel as well. If I may ask how much you paid for the insurance and any discount that you have got.

i have bought the AMT diesel W6 version. have driven approximately 1000km.
few issues noticed was the AMT sometimes doesn't upshift upto 2500rpm, so its an issue in city traffic if riding speeds are around 30kmph.
Being an automatic version it has ESP traction control and roll over mitigation.
Build quality seems good compared to my decade old sx4. NVH levels are very low except for the pedals which let you know the engine has been switched on.
Headlight is a big bummer, absolutely useless at night and these mahindra guys note down non oem items on the car during services. so planning to install a 4300k led headlight after service.
Reverse camera is not available on w6, so will add a 70mai rearview dashcam. some guys at Delhi have unlocked the oem Nippon stereo into engineering mode to install w8 variant software to enable plug and play reverse camera. waiting for results.

Congratulations RaghavSr and Sudhamshu on getting a very good car with a great engine, ride quality, safety, refinement.
@Sudhamshu
The AMT upshifts late when the engine is cold and also if you don't drive with a very light foot when you start the car for the day. My trick was to drive in manual for the first few kilometers and shift to auto a bit late. To be honest, never cracked the shifting code absolutely unlike other AMT cars like Celerio.

The final price was about 9.9L and the insurance amount was 29k odd.

The dealership offered 7k more in discounts initially (October ) and back tracked it claiming the discount for November is different. But the dealer met all other conditions which other dealers weren't accepting like PDI at the yard and full payment after PDI. The other dealers were insisting on payment once the car is alloted, basically loaded on a truck from their factory.

The first service is also up at 1000 kms.

9.9L is a good deal, I paid 12.4 lakhs for w6 AMT, including insurance and 2 years additional extended warranty. Since ex showroom price is 10.19L road tax slab increases and comes close to 2 lakhs. From dealer end I received 20k cash discount and 3k corporate and 4200 worth accessories of my choice

Congrats folks, have safe and exciting adventures!

Sudhamshu: Regarding late upshift in AMT, I have same input as Sridhar's. Do drive it manual mode after cold start, for few kms, and later move to Auto. Give the engine and turbo a gradual warm-up.

I think one can get to know this by measuring the kerb weight of the vehicle in one of those truck weighing scales. XUV300 is significantly heavier than other vehicles in this segment and I really hope they are not doing it silently like how they deleted heated ORVM, headrests and the 3 point seatbelt for the rear center passenger. Would you believe that they have now given 2 point seatbelt for the center passenger as a feature in the W8(O) in their webpage? And they have not yet removed in the safety feature page cover photos

Hello All, I wanted to know if there is any news of XUV3OO Petrol to be launched in AT version? My really like XUV3OO but absence of AT is a big turn down for me. Any information shared would be great.

Have noticed a weird problem in my xuv300 AMT, the gear changes from 1st to 2nd properly however from 2nd to 3rd the shifts occur at around 3200rpm compared to 2000rpm before even on a light foot, and the acceleration feels inconsistent and jerks occasionally. Service centre is not ready to acknowledge it as a problem.. any suggestions would be valuable

Completed the PDI of my car last Saturday. The registration is done and it will be delivered sometime next week.
Here are a few snaps during the PDI at the dealer's stockyard.

Kudos to Mahindra for providing a park regeneration option for DPF.
