2021 Mahindra XUV300 Loses Out On Two Features

Mahindra has recently revised the prices of its entire product line-up, including the XUV300. But despite the price hike, Mahindra's subcompact SUV has seen a silent features revision. The loaded small SUV has dropped two of the features which were giving it an advantage over its rivals. It includes the removal of heated ORVM and a 3-point seatbelt for the rear-middle passenger. While the rear side seats will continue to get the 3-point belts, the middle passenger will have to compromise with a lap belt only.

Mahindra XUV300 comes with many segment-first features and the heated ORVM was only of them. It was available with XUV300's top-spec W8 (O) variant. For the people not in know, a heated ORVM is very useful during rains, cold and foggy weather for better rear visibility but unfortunately, the XUV300 will no longer get this feature. However, the Mahindra XUV300 is still one of the most loaded SUVs in its class with several 1st-in-segment features like dual-zone climate control, three-steering mode (Comfort, Normal & Sport), 7-airbags, all four-disc brakes, and seatbelt reminder for the rear row as well. Also, it is the safest sub-4-meter SUV as per the global NCAP crash test in which it had received a 5-star rating for adult safety & a 4-star rating for child protection.
