Mahindra finally has a worthy opponent in the highly popular sub-four metre segment in the form of the newly launched XUV300. It is heavy on equipment and has good looks to go with it. Mahindra is also offering a well-rounded package with the baby XUV, but is it worthy match to the segment leader Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza? The Brezza sold more than 1.55 lakh cars in 2018, proving that it is a hot favourite amongst car buyers in India. So let us compare the new kid on the block with the most desired sub-four metre SUV in the country in our spec comparison:

Exterior and Styling:

Appearance wise, the XUV300 has a lot going on for it in terms of styling and design. The front gets XUV500-like chrome-pin grille and squared-off headlamps, vertical LED DRLs, black surround on the fog lamps and ample body cladding all around. The floating D-pillar sits on imposing wheel arches, which lend it a masculine stance.  Contrary to the edgy face, the rear has a curved off design. The LED taillights are all new and the SUV sits on 17-inch diamond cut alloy wheels. The XUV300 is based on a modified platform of the Ssangyong Tivoli. So the wheelbase of 2600mm has been retained from the Tivoli and therefore, it has the longest wheelbase in this class.

The Vitara Brezza has been around for almost three years now and needs no introduction in the country. It received a major update last year that included new glossy black alloy wheels and a new Autumn orange body paint. The new body paint can also be had in the dual tone scheme combined with a contrasting white roof. The Vitara Brezza measures 3995x1790x1640mm with a wheelbase of 2500 mm and ground clearance of 198mm. This means it is taller than the XUV300 and has the same overall length, but the XUV300 is wider of the two.
