With the Mahindra XUV300 launch less than 3 weeks away, the company has begun showcasing its compact SUV at malls. This weekend the vehicle’s already made its debut at Sujana Mall in Hyderabad, and Seasons Mall in Pune.
Mahindra XUV300 orderbooks were opened earlier in January. Being introduced as a sub 4-metre compact SUV, the car sits on the longest wheelbase in its segment.
