Mahindra XUV 3XO comes as the latest compact SUV in the block. The homegrown car giant has launched the XUV 3XO as the company’s smallest SUV in India and it comes challenging tough rivals such as Tata Nexon, Hyundai Venue and Maruti Suzuki Brezza. The compact SUV segment is one of the most competitive and highly in-demand categories in the Indian passenger vehicle market and Mahindra is aiming to grab a sizeable share in this space.

The automaker has already revealed its ambition to become one of the top two compact SUV makers in India by 2027. The Mahindra XUV 3XO is going to play a key role in that strategy. This SUV is essentially a significantly updated iteration of the Mahindra XUV300. However, owing to the design updates and a wide range of feature additions, the XUV 3XO looks more premium and suave than the XUV300.
