Launched locally in 2019, the Mahindra XUV300 has been awarded the highest 5-Star Safety Rating by Global NCAP. With this global recognition, the XUV300 becomes the first ever vehicle in Africa to score the highest safety rating among cars tested so far by Global NCAP.
The XUV300 has also become one of the vehicles in Africa 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.
What is the Global NCAP?
The GNCAP is a charitable organisation based in Europe and it has been actively campaigning for safer vehicles in developing markets across the world.
Safety focused XUV300
Leading the safety charge, the XUV300 ticks key safety boxes with its many segment-leading safety features including 7 airbags, disc brakes on all 4 wheels, front parking sensors and heated outside rear-view mirrors (ORVMs) for improved visibility, offers fortress-like safety that is unmatched.
According to Rajesh Gupta, CEO of Mahindra South Africa, “A 5-star rating from the GNCAP is the best-possible confirmation that safety is integrated into the very design and structure of the Mahindra XUV300. If one combines the vehicle’s passive safety with its performance, including its exemplary road holding and dynamic handling, it is the perfect SUV for the South African family. It boasts of an unmatched value proposition in terms of style, safety, performance and features.”
This is good news for the XUV300 and makes it an even more compelling option for a consumer looking for quality, practicality and safety.
The XUV300 is priced from R249,900.
