The Mahindra XUV 3XO is now available for purchase in India at a starting price of Rs 7.49 lakh (ex-showroom). The SUV has a revised interior, exterior, and more equipment than the outgoing XUV300. It is available in nine trim levels: MX1, MX2, MX2 Pro, MX3, MX3 Pro, AX5, AX5 L, AX7, and AX7 L, and three engine options. With substantial improvements in all aspects, the all-new XUV 3XO aims to rise above its predecessor in popularity. Let's explore some of the key differences between the new XUV 3XO and the old XUV300 in depth.

Mahindra has given the XUV 3XO's cabin an extensive makeover. Depending on the variant, the car sports a larger 10.25-inch screen with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, derived from the XUV400. In comparison, the XUV300 had a 7-inch unit. The XUV 3XO features a 10.25-inch digital driver display instead of the former twin-pod analogue cluster. Unlike the previous model's silver inlays, the all-new XUV300 has glossy black inserts on its steering. Furthermore, its upper dashboard is upholstered in soft-touch leatherette. The SUV is now equipped with a panoramic sunroof, a first in the class.

Other notable changes include relocated central air conditioning vents, an improved dual-zone AC climate control panel, and a 65 W USB Type-C fast-charging port.
