Mahindra XUV300 W4: cover most bases
W4, the most base-spec of XUV300, contains all of the basic features and the diesel engine edition is merely Rs 60,000 more expensive than petrol edition ( and available with an audio system), which means it is at a relatively best price to the deals who have a quite strong demand of running, for example the fleet owners on a budget or those with commercial use needs. So, in another dimension, for private buyers, we strongly recommend the additional edition that equipped with wheel covers, height adjustable driver's seat, keyless entry and tilt-adjustable steering to the package as basic features.
Mahindra XUV300 w6: a serious premium, high unnecessary cost compared with W4
Both the petrol and diesel edition W6 are over Rs 80,000 more expensive than the corresponding edition of W4, which is at the basis of some newly added functions of W4. However, there is also no height adjustable driver's seat in the equipment list of W6 as well as W4. Worse still, it is a feature that cannot be added in the aftermarket. Besides, the 7-inch infotainment system, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are also missing in the W6, so we highly suggest you to make a trial order of W8 rather than W6.
Mahindra XUV300 W8: a car of modernization
Compares with W6, W8 is well equipped and has a higher safety index with an air of dignity from the inside to outside. So, if you are not budget limited, W8 would definitely be your best choice. Once you bought W8, it means you acquired bigger wheels (alloys), LED DRLs and chrome on the outside as well as premium looking piano black inserts on the inside. And the ESP with anti-roll mitigation along with hill hold assist help skyrocket the safety index of W8. In addition, there are also many humanized features which optimize your drive and ride experience in a large grade, such as the segment-first dual-zone climate control. More importantly, the Modern-day basics like Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support of the 7-inch unit are clear demonstrations of the modern design of the W8.
MahindraXUV300 W8(O): safer, more luxurious, a product from a higher degree
The W8(O) is unbelievably upgraded in every aspect compared to the well loaded W8. It possesses with seven airbags, front parking sensors and 3-point seatbelt for the rear middle seat, which upgrade its safety a segment above. This variant also makes the XUV300 the most loaded sub-compact/sub-4m SUV in the market right now. The incremental cost is justified for the added features.
