The Mahindra XUV 3XO has been launched in five broad variants – MX1, MX2, MX3, AX5, and AX7 – priced from Rs 7.49 lakh (introductory ex-showroom pan-India) onwards. If you want the full flagship experience of the new XUV 3XO, it’s the AX7 or the AX7 L variant that should be your pick. In this story, we decipher if it’s worth the upgrade over the second-to-top AX5 variant.

What Could Have Been Better About The XUV 3XO AX7/ AX7 L?

Although the XUV 3XO is packed to the gills, while sporting a refreshed design inside and out, we feel Mahindra could have provided it with some more equipment like its premium segment rivals including the Tata Nexon and Kia Sonet. It could have benefitted from upgrades such as ventilated front seats, a powered driver’s seat, and mainly, a diesel-auto combination.




Buy it only if on a budget. Else, stretch to the next MX2 variant for more features as well as diesel and automatic gearbox options.



MX2 Pro

Only pick if you desire a handful of new features over the base. It’s the true entry-level variant if you want a diesel-manual option on a budget.

The true entry-level petrol variant of the SUV. Also, only choice if you want the option of a petrol-auto combo and sunroof on a budget. Gets the choice of a diesel unit as well.



MX3 Pro

Consider only for the diesel-automatic combo. Otherwise, not worth the price jump over the MX2 Pro. Skip to MX3 Pro for a more rounded package.

Gets ample visual upgrades along with the same tech as the MX3 for a justifiable premium. Misses out on a diesel-auto option.




Our recommended variant. Gets most of the bells and whistles for the price, along with the choice of petrol and diesel powertrains with automatic gearbox options.

Consider only if you want an AX5 with ADAS, a 360-degree camera, and an electronic parking brake with auto-hold. other premium safety features. 




Offers the full flagship experience of the SUV, while also being the top-spec variant for the diesel-auto combo.

Consider only if you want an AX7 with ADAS, a 360-degree camera, and an electronic parking brake with auto-hold.
