Mahindra will launch the XUV 3XO in India on April 29. However, before that, the renamed SUV has been seen undergoing road testing in our market. The most recent spy photos show details such as body-painted door handles, halogen headlamps, grey wheel caps, and black and beige upholstery. Although not verified, the test mule appears to be a base-spec version. Earlier in April, Mahindra posted a teaser for the SUV, which is a facelifted and rebranded version of the XUV300. The video showed several cosmetic modifications, including a new 'XUV 3XO' emblem, a fresh paint job, inverted C-shaped LED DRLs, larger connected LED taillights, a dual-pane panoramic sunroof, and dual-projector split headlights.

Though the price has not yet been disclosed, market speculations suggest that the XUV 3XO will have a higher price tag than the XUV300, which is currently priced between Rs 7.99 lakh and Rs 14.76 lakh. Both are ex-showroom figures.
