While Mahindra has been in the subcompact SUV space since the Quanto days, it truly arrived with the XUV300 that retails in the upper end of the segment. The model has been a reasonable seller so far for the automaker and continues to hold its own over rivals like the Tata Nexon, Ford EcoSport, Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, and the likes. Sharing its underpinnings with the SsangYong Tivoli, the baby XUV is loaded on tech and also gets spirited 1.2-litre and 1.5-litee petrol and diesel engines respectively. An AMT option was recently introduced on the vehicle.
