Mahindra XUV300 is not a new name in the Indian automotive industry anymore, but this car has shown its potential in an insanely different manner. The new TV commercial live on YouTube features Triple Asia Pacific Rally Champion Gaurav Gill. Unlike any other usual driver whose Ninja comes out on seeing open highways and curvy hills, Gaurav has driven the upcoming Mahindra XUV300 SUV in a drastically unexpected way. Now here, the “unexpected” thing isn’t mentioned for the stated WRC champion but for a car which is Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Ford Ecosport and Tata Nexon rival.
Gaurav Gills takes the car through twists and turns and shows the amount of grunt under the hood. It also revealed the strength of 17-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels while drifting the SUV across the barriers. While moving through these curves, the flexibility of the car and its compact nature seems to favour the tight lane and corners of Indian cities. It will also help one to manoeuvre through heavy traffic conditions and cut it with ease. The suspension setup is assumed to be great as the car is seen performing off-road stunts and being projected on spikes. Being a Mahindra, it is a no brainer that the car will come equipped with features to take it off the road.
