The XUV300 also becomes the first Indian vehicle to score a 4-Star child safety rating. It is noteworthy that side impact performance is a pre-requisite for a 5-Star safety rating, and the XUV300 side impact performance has been one of the best among all 5-star rated cars.
Commenting on this achievement, Rajan Wadhera, President-Automotive, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. said, “This is a proud moment for Mahindra as the 5-Star rating reiterates our unstinted commitment towards safety. Today’s conscious buyers rate safety as a top priority while making their purchase decision and we have designed the XUV300 to be one of the safest vehicles in India. I am sure that this recognition will further spur us as well as the Indian automotive industry to achieve similar safety standards for the entire range of vehicles on Indian roads”.
