    For its additional asking price, the W6 variant adds an array of features, some of the key features include touchscreen infotainment system with steering-mounted controls, remote central locking, adjustable rear headrests, full-wheel covers and roof rails. 

    If you go for the AMT option, then the W6 variant further adds the features like electronic stability control and hill start assist

    We think that in this price point the W6 variant should have also included features such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support, height adjustable driver seat, rear defogger, rear wiper and rear parking camera.

    As per our internal data, this variant’s added features do not justify the incremental cost of Rs 1.15 lakh.

    However, if you decide to buy the W6 variant along with the sunroof option, then it’ll be a better value package. This is because Mahindra is charging a very minimal price for the sunroof option in all the powertrain options of the XUV300.

    We think that with either the petrol or diesel engine options, if you are considering the W4 variant, then you are going to compromise on basic features. 

    In case of the diesel engine, we recommend that you do consider the W6 with the sunroof option over the W4 variant, so that you get all the basic features, plus a few good-to-have features while not compromising much on the value.

    In case of the petrol engine, consider buying the W8 variant rather than the W6 with sunroof.

    If you are planning to buy the XUV300 in either petrol or diesel version along with AMT, then whether you should go for the W6 or a higher variant, we will discuss it after looking at the features details of the next variant.

    WHat Are The Features of Mahindra XUV300 W8 Variant?

    The XUV300 W8 petrol-manual is around Rs 60,000 costlier than the W6 with sunroof, while in the diesel-manual’s case, it is around Rs 90,000 expensive and Rs 83,000 costlier when it comes to the diesel-AMT variant. 

    The W8 with the diesel-manual powertrain is crossing the price slab of Rs 10 lakh, hence in many states it will attract more tax. Therefore, with the W6 with sunroof variant, its on-road price difference will be around Rs 1.30 lakh.

    Compared to the W6 variant with sunroof, as per our internal data, the W8 variant’s added features have a perceived value of around Rs 1 lakh, considering this variant lacks sunroof.

    In case of the petrol engine, we’d strongly recommend going for the W8 variant, while in the diesel-AMT powertrain’s case also the W8 is a worthy buy. However, when it comes to the diesel-manual powertrain, we’d not recommend the W8 and will suggest that you go for the W6 variant with sunroof option if you are looking for an entry-level variant.

    With the diesel-manual powertrain, you have the choice of buying the W8 variant with the sunroof option, for which Mahindra is charging around Rs 25,000 extra -- which is nominal.

    Should you buy the W8 variant with the sunroof option or go for the W8 Optional variant, we’ll see after looking into the latter. 

    What Are The Features of Mahindra XUV300 W8(O) Variant? 

    The W8 optional variant is Rs 1.10 lakh more expensive than the W8 in the petrol-manual and diesel-AMT powertrain options, while in the diesel-manual powertrain’s case, the price gap is of Rs 1 lakh. 

    The petrol W8 optional variant crosses the price range of Rs 10 lakh, so it will attract more tax in a number of states, and hence the on-road price difference will be of around Rs 1.5 lakh.

    In case of the petrol-manual transmission powertrain, the W8 optional variant’s added features almost justify the price increment. However, in case of the other powertrain options, this variant easily justifies its additional asking price. 

    If you intend to drive a lot and especially sprint on highways, then it will be a good decision to buy the XUV300 W8 Optional variant, owing to its additional safety features. In case of the petrol-AMT variant, you can go for the W8 (O) as per your preference and budget. 

    Mahindra XUV300 - Which Variant To Buy? 

    Now to sum up all the variants of the Mahindra XUV300. If you are considering the petrol version of the XUV300, then we recommend the W8 variant. The base W4 variant lacks a number of basic features, so we would not recommend buying it. Above the W4, the W6 variant is an expensive upgrade, and does not justify its cost.  nahi karta. In comparison, the W6 with sunroof option is a better value option than the W6, but only because of the sunroof and the attractive pricing for it. Hence, the W8 variant is the best variant in the petrol-manual range in terms of both value and features. The W8 Optional variant is suitable for those buyers, who run their car a lot and that too on highways.

    The XUV300 petrol-AMT is available only in the W6 variant with the sunroof option and the W8 (O) variant. You can easily choose to go for any one of these two variants, as per your budget and feature requirement.

    Here’s a brief look at our variant-wise recommendations on the 2021 Mahindra XUV300 with petrol-MT powertrain:

    If you wish to go for the diesel-manual version of the XUV300, then for the budget buyers we recommend the W6 with the sunroof option, as it is a sensible buy in terms of both value and features. Again, the basic W4 variant lacks several basic features, so we would not recommend it. If you wish to stretch your budget for a feature-rich variant, then you can go for either the W8 with sunroof or the W8 optional variant.
