Mahindra XUV300 autoshift had been in the works according to the carmaker. After with the manual transmission, the automatic variant would also be introduced in the same year. This particular model was the only subcompact SUV so far to miss out on the automatic variant, but soon that would be a thing of the past. The Mahindra XUV300 automatic would have an "autoSHIFT" badge on the tailgate. There would not be any changes on the exterior profile as the current look has been going quite well for the company. The car shares its design and styling cues with the XUV500.
#1 The rugged yet sophisticated design of the car makes it stand out
The Mahindra XUV300 is the newest subcompact SUV and would be rivaling vehicles like Ford EcoSport, Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza and Tata Nexon. The car has four trims - W4, W6, W8 and the top-spec trim W8(O). Though the car is largely based on the platform of SsangYong Tivoli, it has been shortened a little to be a sub-4-metre car and help reduce taxes. The car is still the widest, which translates into a lot of space on the inside.
#2 The interior of the car gets pleasing designs
The beige and black theme that had been present in XUV300 would stay unchanged when the automatic variant hits the market. The cabin is spacious as well as airy, and the commanding driving position ensures that you get a good view of everything. The thing that is new in the Mahindra XUV300 AMT is the sturdy gear lever that is nice and easy to hold. It is quite easy to push it into different drive modes. The gates lay in a cross position, with the stick originally in the centremost position.
#3 The car offers a fluent driving
The AMT variant would be putting out 300 Nm and 117 hp of power. The 4-cylinder engine would be the same as the manual version. When the 6-speed lever is moved to the 'A' position, the Creep mode engages, which is nice and progressive. The automatic variant of this vehicle is much better than what has been seen on any Mahindra models. The car is very smooth when it drives. The transmission would shift through the initial gears effortlessly even with a light foot on the throttle.
#4 The safety of the car is an important factor
One of the vital things about a car is its safety. The braking experience instills confidence while driving the car around. Along with ABS, dual airbags, EBD and disc brakes on all four wheels as standard, it can be seen that Mahindra had been prioritising the safety of customers. The higher trims add more safety features to the list.
#5 Along with good build quality, the car has a good mileage
The build of the Mahindra XUV300 automatic has been very sturdy. The car gets high safety ratings for this feature. The automatic variant of the car would probably a little more fuel-efficient than what the manual transmission had to offer.
