The cabin of the XUV 3XO will feature a new 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system equipped with Mahindra’s AdrenoX-connected car technology, first introduced in the XUV700. This system enhances user interaction with features like remote control AC which allows drivers to pre-cool the cabin remotely—ideal for the hot Indian summers.

Digital Innovations

Adding to the digital enhancements, the XUV 3XO will include a 10.25-inch fully digital driver’s display. This feature, which enhances the driver’s interaction with the vehicle’s diagnostics and navigation was also recently integrated into the Mahindra XUV400 EV marking a significant upgrade in Mahindra’s digital offerings.

First-in-Class Panoramic Sunroof

A standout feature in the upcoming XUV 3XO is the panoramic sunroof, confirmed through recent teasers. This will make it the first subcompact SUV in India to offer such a feature, following the introduction of the panoramic sunroof in the XUV700.

Versatile Drive Modes

The XUV 3XO is set to include multi-drive modes named Zip, Zap, and Zoom, mirroring those found in the XUV700 and other newer premium Mahindra SUVs like the Scorpio N. These modes offer enhanced driving dynamics although specific details regarding compatible powertrains or transmissions are still pending confirmation.

360-degree Camera for Enhanced Safety

The addition of a 360-degree camera is another expected feature which aids in navigating tight parking spots and congested traffic conditions. This feature, already present in competitors like the Tata Nexon, Kia Sonet, and Nissan Magnite, enhances the XUV 3XO’s appeal in the crowded subcompact SUV market.

Pricing and Market Competition

Set to go on sale shortly after its unveiling, the Mahindra XUV 3XO is anticipated to start at an ex-showroom price of Rs 9 lakh. It will compete directly with established models like the Tata Nexon, Maruti Brezza, and Hyundai Venue as well as newcomers like the upcoming Skoda sub-4m SUV positioning it as a compelling option in the competitive subcompact SUV segment.
