Mahindra XUV 3XO comes closely competing with tough rivals like Tata Nexon, Maruti Suzuki Brezza, Hyundai Venue and Kia Sonet in the intensely competitive compact SUV segment of the Indian passenger vehicle market.

Mahindra & Mahindra launched its XUV 3XO compact SUV in the Indian market just a few days ago, which comes as a significantly updated avatar of the XUV300. The XUV 3XO comes re-energising the compact SUV segment, which has become one of the most intensely competitive categories in the country’s passenger vehicle market over the last few years. Launched at a starting price of 7.49 lakh (ex-showroom), the all-new Mahindra XUV 3XO throws challenges to tough rivals such as Tata Nexon, Maruti Suzuki Brezza, Hyundai Venue and Kia Sonet.

Despite essentially being an updated iteration of the Mahindra XUV300, the new XUV 3XO comes with its distinctive visual appearance and a wide range of fresh features, which adds zing to the car. However, it is to be seen how Mahindra tackles the intense competition in this space. We have already compared the Mahindra XUV 3XO with its rivals like the Kia Sonet, Maruti Suzuki Brezza and Tata Nexon. Here is a look at how the Mahindra XUV 3XO will compete with Hyundai Venue.
