Why Skip The XUV 3XO MX3/ MX3 Pro?

For a premium ranging between Rs 70,000 and Rs 1.2 lakh, the AX5 and AX5 L variants get a lot more comfort, convenience and safety features, including dual-zone AC, a 360-degree camera, and level-2 advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). Also, the AX5 L is the entry-level variant if you want the new 1.2-litre TGDi turbo-petrol unit on the SUV.




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

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.
