Coming to the design and structure, XUV 300 more or less looks like a small brother of Suzuki Vitara Brezza. There are rectangular grille and air intake with chrome finish. The day time running LED DRLs continuing vertically connecting the fog lights. The front face gets an aggressive look while the side profile runs simply with bold wheel arches dominating at both the ends. The sloping roofline merges with the inclined boot door where the tail lights are eye-catching. and the dominating back bumper. But then the boot space is a bit problem with high loading point and little space to offer.
XUV 300 shares its design structure from the Ssangyong Tivoli, the sister brand of Mahindra. The interiors are cool yet common with dual tone dashboard accommodating the audio system, controls, and other buttons. The leather upholstery plays a key role in pleasantness.
