The booking for the 3XO started on May 15, and the deliveries for the car will commence on May 26

Mahindra’s latest offering, the XUV 3XO, is now available for booking via online process and from the nearest dealerships. As per the carmaker, it will commence the delivery of the newest model from May 26 and going by the appreciation it has received from automotive media outlets, the car is expected to be a huge hit unlike the last generation iteration.

However, given the last generation iteration lacked modern touches, especially in terms of features, there’s confusion among potential buyers about the 3XO’s features and interior. In the following paragraphs, we have penned down the differences between 3XO and XUV300’s features and interior. 

Inside the cabin

Inside the cabin, the 3X0 now looks like a premium offering, unlike the old-gen model. Mahindra has added soft-touch plastic and glossy finishes on the dashboard to give the car an upmarket feel. Gone are the 7.0-inch infotainment screen and the analogue cluster because in place of them, Mahindra has added a more extensive 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system and a fully digital instrument cluster.

Segment firsts

Moving on to segments first in the 3XO, Mahindra’s newest sub-compact SUV comes equipped with dual-zone automatic climate control, a panoramic sunroof and an electronic parking brake (EPB).

Under the hood

Away from gimmicky goodies to the real deal, the 3XO has been launched in two engine variants. Two of them are petrol units -- a 1.2-litre turbo petrol churning out a peak power 110bhp and a maximum torque of 200Nm whereas the 1.2-litre T-GDi petrol engine generates a peak power of 130bhp and a peak torque of 230Nm. The third powertrain is a diesel unit of 1.5-litre that makes 115bhp of power and 300Nm of torque. 

In terms of transmission, the petrol variants earlier had the option to go for automated manual transmission. However, the 3XO is being offered with Aisin-sourced six-speed torque converter whereas one can purchase the diesel variant with six-speed automated manual transmission. Note that all three variants are also available with manual transmission. 

Variants and colours 

Last but not least, the 3XO is being offered in as many as nine trims such as MX1, MX2, MX2 Pro, MX3, MX3 Pro, AX5, AX5L, AX7 and AX7L coupled with several colour variants such as Citrine Yellow, Deep Forest, Stealth Black, Nebula Blue, Tango Red, Dune Beige, Everest White and Galaxy Grey. 

Note that the features mentioned above are not available in every trim and that is why the price varies between INR 7.49 lakh and INR 15.49 lakh, ex-showroom.
