Re: 2024 Mahindra XUV 3XO Review

Lot has been said about 3X0, so just giving my thoughts on this. They have nailed it perfectly with this update. It is priced perfectly too. Looks are polarizing, but the target audience is Youth and they like this funkiness. I like most of the colours offered, it suits the look of car. You won't find such a good pallet in any other car.

Only drawback I found is white liner all over the car, at foot area and sides and below the seats and seat belt.. This is going to create hell lot of trouble in cleaning and will be dust and stain magnet. Your car will look ugly after some time. This area should be black, always.

Another thing which could create problem is Glossy black piano finish all over the touch points, this will also make your car look ugly after some time due to scratches. A carbon fiber or matte black wood finish, instead of Shiny piano finish, would have made car more elegant.

But I think, both these things could be corrected after buying the car.

I could have considered this car, but I can't compromise on boot space, as I have few long trips planned in near future. So will not buy, but will definitely suggest to all who is in the market.

Having said that, it is good to have these latest tech features in your car and make it future proof. Why because during the next 10+ years of ownership whatever few times you will use the features it will make it TOTALLY worth it (there are threads on TEAMBHP where owners have narrated how ADAS has saved their lives)
Thanks for detailed reply.
AX7L - will be out of my budget. for AX5L/AX7 also I am stretching little big but willing to for future proofing.

Adas call I will take once reviews are received in few days regarding adas. its not usable and going to disable it. there is no point on non tested non working product. test drive and and reviews will help to make decision.

Heart is on India make and this time not compromising much so might skip sonet.

Wow. This is brilliant. Clean design. I wish Mahindra designers took 10 more hours to scrutinise their own 3XO design.
Meanwhile, for people who are concerned about boot space management, I found an interesting short video.

Have a look. Seems like space is ample.

Re: 2024 Mahindra XUV 3XO Review

Which variant of the XUV 3xo is the most value for money variant according to you guys?

For me it is the mx2 pro TC automatic variant, it gets the turbo petrol with an aisin sourced smooth torque converter unit, this car is mechanically sorted and also has all the necessary features and comes under 9.99 lakhs ex-showroom, saving road tax in states like Karnataka, Kerala.

The most value for money manual variant for me would be the ax5 variant with all the good to have plus necessary features with mechanically sorted package, although I wish this variant came with 360 degree camera without the ADAS.

Also, how does this fair against Kia Sonet 1.2na htk(o) or htk+?

2. Your expert view on sonet HTX vs 3XO AX5 (similar price point)
3. AX5 to AX7 is 2L delta. Is that worth it? (Better engine, Leatherette everything and better speaker).
If this video is any indication of the execution of ADAS on the 3XO, I would definitly give it a skip. The car is just all over the place. Instead of making the driving safer, its making it much more unsafe.

Besides, I find ADAS tech itself too intrusive and takes away from the actual joy of driving, what with constant interruptions and beeps.



Regarding Sonet HTX vs 3XO AX5, it all boils down to your priorities with respect to space management. If you prioritise interior sitting space over boot space, go for the 3XO , otherwise the Sonet. Personally for me, interior space is something that will always affect me when me and my family are driving, but a lower boot space is something that would only pinch me occasionally (family vacations, airport transfers etc.).

Regarding AX5 vs AX7, yes AX7 is worth it. First, it gets the TGDi which the AX5 doesn't and for me its a big factor, and then it has some feel good features like skyroof, Harman audio system with sub, leather seats, auto dimming IRVM etc.

Yes. same gearbox.
The cheapest AT is MX2 Pro which will also come with sunroof and 10" infotainment. What you will miss is Led headlights and connected led taillights. easily done aftermarket. It is 9.99 ex showroom (Base MT + 2.5 L) and yes it is value for money considering a ballpark 1.3 L for AT + 60k for infotainment and 50 k + 10k for remote key, steering control and wheel cover over the base variant.

Re: 2024 Mahindra XUV 3XO Review

Despite 10 PS power and 30 NM torque advantage of XUV the 0-100 performance is very disappointing. Attaching pics of 0-100 of Sonet and XUV. Sonet is almost 2 secs quicker.

Like I said earlier, the DCT of Sonet might put down the power better than AISIN AT of XUV. If anyone wanted confirmation of how a DCT is quicker than AT, here it is.

Would be interesting to see the roll on figures for both.

Re: 2024 Mahindra XUV 3XO Review

I have been driving the old 300 since last three and half years. It is the best car in the segment hands down, drives great, amazing and powerful engines, sorted ride and handling, great visibility with bonet clearly visible, which gives a feel that one is driving a larger SUV from higher segments.
The 3XO does a fantastic job in filling the gaps the 300 had:
  • Much better front dashboard. Advanced systems and electronics.
  • A rear AC Vent. Believe me, it is much needed for such a roomy cabin.
  • It could not do much with the bootspace with its roots, but it seems to have improved on that too.
  • A Torque Converter. DCT can be sporty, but reliability is all that matters (Diesel should have been given the same too).
  • Better music system.

Kudos to Mahindra.

Re: 2024 Mahindra XUV 3XO Review

For anyone looking to make a choice between the variants, a very helpful video by Jagdev Kalsi at V3 Cars. Lists out all the main features and gives a very detailed analysis of which variant is most VFM.

As a sample attaching some screenshots from the video.

No it is not. It is still one chink in its armour in an otherwise brilliant package. Watch this video review (5:09 onwards) -

Was convinced the Nexon facelift last year was hands-down the most comprehensive facelift in recent times, but this one takes the cake. Hard to believe it's a 10 year-old platform (the XUV300 was starting to feel like it). The renaming is rightly deserved as it's clearly not a half-hearted attempt to stay relevant.

Of course the panoramic roof, torque converter auto and much-needed new centre console (a la XUV400 Pro) will be the biggest draw, but personally I'm more glad to see that some of the rear-seat safety deletions are back, and there's even more in the way of crash avoidance: blind spot camera (big fan) and pretty sophisticated ADAS.

Clearly the biggest question mark is the design. Personally I take issue only with the rear (it looks bloated, and the connected taillamps just don't cut it) but it seems the front is a problem for many as well (not the case with the 300). Will be interesting to see if it affects sales.

And, as always, excellent thread MotorDev.

No pictorial/ dimensions comparison of increased boot space. Mahindra claims 1.5 times increase in the same.

Other than the above, I believe Pratap Bose simply erred in designing the headlights in order to not let the world know that he got inspiration from Creta (penultimate model).

I also believe Mahindra should give up the chop shop practice. They first ruined the Logan & now the Tivoli. Even the XUV400 is handsome vehicle & can be introduced in ICE engine guise.

Other than that I hear (from a friend) that the turbo-petrol is good performer, plus the 5-star safety rating is the icing on the cake.

The XUV 300 was a pocket rocket and failed miserably in the rear bench and the puny boot. If the dimension of the 3XO is same as 300 then how was the boot increased 1.5 times, where did that space come from ? Was the rear seating further compromised? If the dimensions have changed/increased for 3XO, will the previous 5 star safety rating still apply for the new model?

I kind of liked the Deep Forest color added, gives a nice twist to the usual boring colors.

Had to happen. Dealers have become addicted to playing the waiting period game, but are no longer able to do so on the SUV lineup. Up to the same cheap tricks again. And going by what we have seen over the part 2 years, Mahindra has zero will or ability to keep them in check.
