9 Features New Mahindra XUV 3XO Gets Over Maruti Suzuki Brezza | V3Cars

Mahindra’s B2-segment SUV, the XUV300, is back with a thoroughly revised design, updated features and a new name – the XUV 3XO. The 2024 XUV 3XO is Mahindra’s answer to new and updated rivals such as the Tata Nexon, Maruti Suzuki Brezza, Hyundai Venue and the Kia Sonet. The carmaker has added several new features to their B2-segment SUV to woo customers to their showrooms.

2024 Mahindra XUV 3XO

In this article, we take a look at 9 features the new Mahindra XUV 3XO gets over the 2024 Maruti Suzuki Brezza.  


The Mahindra XUV 3XO offers more standard safety features than the Maruti Suzuki Brezza, such as 6 airbags as 3-point seatbelts for all passengers. However, the biggest trump card of the Mahindra XUV 3XO is its ADAS suite, which the Maruti Suzuki Brezza lacks.

The 2024 Mahindra XUV 3XO offers ADAS features such as:

  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Auto emergency braking 
  • Forward collision warning
  • Traffic sign recognition
  • Lane departure warning
  • Lane keeping assist
  • High beam assist

The outgoing Mahindra XUV300 boasted a 5-star safety rating for adult occupant protection and 4-star rating for child occupant protection by the Global NCAP. The global crash testing agency are yet to test the second generation Brezza. However, the previous generation model scored a 4 -star adult occupant protection rating and a 3-star child occupant protection rating. Considering the current-gen Brezza offers more safety features, including side and thorax airbags, in its top variant, we expect it to perform better than its predecessor. 

2. Panoramic Sunroof

Mahindra are capitalising on the Indian car buyers’ love for sunroof by offering the new XUV 3XO with a segment-first panoramic sunroof. Although the panoramic sunroof feature is limited to the top AX7 and AX7 Luxury variant only, Mahindra offer a single-pane sunroof from the MX2 Pro onwards.

In comparison, the 2024 Brezza only gets a single-pane sunroof and it too is available from the 3rd Smart Plus S variant of the SUV onwards.

3. 10.24-Inch Instrument Cluster

The Mahindra XUV 3XO offers a 10.24-inch instrument cluster from the AX5 variant onwards. The Brezza, on the other hand, offers an analogue instrument cluster only. However, the Brezza does offer a head-up display in its top ZXI Plus variant. A coloured multi-info display (MID) is offered from the ZXI variant onwards. 

4. 17-Inch Alloy Wheels

The top AX7 and AX7 Luxury variant of the new XUV 3XO comes with 17-inch alloy wheels, while the base and mid variants come with 16-inch steel and alloy wheels, respectively. In comparison, the Brezza comes with 16-inch alloy wheels in its top 2 variants – ZXI and ZXI Plus. The lower LXI and VXI variants come with 16-inch steel wheels.

5. Electronic Parking Brake 

The XUV 3XO variants that offer ADAS – the AX5 Luxury and AX7 Luxury – offer an electronic parking brake with auto hold function. The other variants of Mahindra’s B2-segment SUV get a conventional handbrake. In comparison, the Brezza comes with a conventional handbrake. However, it offers hill hold control as standard on all variants.

An electronic parking brake offers enhanced convenience and safety as you don't need to keep your foot on the brake pedal when stopped at a light or in traffic. This can be especially helpful for stop-and-go driving, reducing leg fatigue. When you press the accelerator, the auto hold feature automatically disengages and you can drive away. Auto hold also prevents your car from rolling unintentionally, especially on hills.

6. Adjustable Headrest For 2nd Row Middle Passenger

The Mahindra XUV 3XO offers an adjustable headrest for 2nd row middle passenger from the AX5 variant onwards. There are a couple of advantages to having an adjustable headrest for the 2nd-row middle passenger. Firstly, an adjustable headrest allows passengers of various heights to find a comfortable position that properly supports their head and neck. This can help prevent neck strain and injuries during sudden stops or collisions. It also offers enhanced passenger experience, especially on longer journeys.

The Maruti Suzuki Brezza does not offer an adjustable headrest for 2nd row middle passenger in any of its variants.

7. Ambient Sounds And 9-Band Equaliser

The top AX7 and AX7 Luxury variants of the Mahindra XUV 3XO come with a premium Harman Kardon music system that offers ambient sounds and a segment-first 9-band equaliser. The latter allows users to tune music coming out of the speakers to their liking, making it a delightful feature for audiophiles.

The Brezza offers a premium Arkamys sound system in its top 2 variants. However, it only gets EQ presets and does not ambient sounds.

8. Dual Zone Climate Control

The Mahindra XUV 3XO offers dual-zone climate control from the AX5 variant onwards, while the Maruti Suzuki Brezza only offers a single-zone climate control from the VXI variant onwards.

9. Tyre Pressure Monitoring System

Last but not least, the Mahindra XUV 3XO offers a tyre pressure monitoring system, or TPMS, from its AX5 variant. The Maruti Suzuki Brezza, on the other hand, does not offer this passive safety feature in any of its variants.

Mahindra XUV 3XO Vs Maruti Suzuki Brezza – Base Variants Compared

The 2024 Mahindra XUV 3XO offers several features as standard right from the base variant that are only available in the mid or top variants of the Maruti Suzuki Brezza. They include:

  • 6 airbags
  • Engine start stop
  • LED DRLs
