MY22 Mahindra XUV300 gets new alloy wheels

Written by Nayak

Mahindra has finally updated the XUV300 with some updates. This is the first time the SUV has changed since its launch. For the top-end models, the SUV now gets a new set of alloy wheels, which gives it a refreshed look. Interestingly, the alloys are smaller, thus providing more comfort now.

Before the update, XUV300 got flower-like alloy wheels with low-profile 215/55 R17 tyres. The W8 got a regular single-tone finish. Meanwhile, the W8(O) got the diamond-cut dual-tone treatment. Now, the new alloy wheels get an L-shaped paired spoke design. However, the tyre profile is now 205/65 R16 which will ensure a more comfortable ride. Higher profile tyres are always more comfortable, especially over bad roads. The reduction in the wheel size is also applicable for the lower variants with steel rims.

Key Features Highlights Of XUV300

Mahindra’s sub-4 metre offering might not be getting the same hype as its elder siblings of XUV700 and Thar. But the product is quite potent with a new powerful engine. Furthermore, it gets all the bells and whistles per 2022 standards. The SUV benefits from a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The XUV300 also benefits from Mahindra’s Bluesense Plus connected car tech with smartwatch connectivity, voice commands, SMS readouts, and tyre-position sensor.

Other key features include a rear camera with adaptive guidelines, micro-hybrid technology, push-button start/stop, dual-zone climate control, projector headlamps, electrically-foldable ORVMs, and rain-sensing wipers, keyless entry, auto-dimming IRVM and cruise control. The XUV300 also comes with a sunroof with an anti-pinch function. In terms of safety as well, the XUV300 scores quite highly. It gets all-wheel disc brakes, hill start assist, passenger airbag deactivation, panic braking signal, impact-sensing door unlock ISOFIX child anchors, ABS with EBD, and ESP with roll-over mitigation. There are also some plans for Mahindra to launch a performance variant of the XUV300. There’s no official announcement just as of yet. However, reports suggest the launch could happen sometime this year.
