Tata Nexon XZ+ vs Maruti Brezza ZDi+ vs Mahindra XUV300 W8

The Brezza was recently dethroned by the Hyundai Venue. However, given that the Nexon and now the XUV300 have been around for sometime, we decided to do a specifications comparison to see which one is more appealing. At the outset, let us tell you that the Brezza is the safest option in terms of buying. It is a Maruti, has got good service backup and tried as well as tested parts. The space is decent and it is a driver’s car as well. There though is only a diesel engine on offer but the grapevine says that a petrol can be expected sometime later this year. A choice of 5-speed manual as well as automatic transmissions are available.Mahindra_XUV300_Suzuki_Brezza_Tata_NexonTata launched the Nexon to take on the Brezza. While the Nexon sales number and in fact those of even the XUV combined may not make it up to the Brezza’s, the fight is on. The Tata Nexon is again a solid product and has got decent features too. It is more spacious than the Brezza and at the same time, is slightly less expensive as well. However, the service as well as quality of few parts could definitely improve.The Mahindra XUV300 is a more modern and feature-rich vehicle compared to the others here. In fact, the feature list is so vast that it will even shame a few vehicles above the segment. The engine is a silent unit and has ample amount of usable torque as well. All three cars here also come with an AMT option while the Brezza is the only one with a 5-speed gearbox. How do they fare against each other? Check the spec table below.
