    Even if the TCS would’ve turned On in XUV3OO, it would easily win. It has that advantage of 300Nm torque. And during 1 mile race too Nexon could be ahead for short while but XUV3OO would beat considering it’s higher peak power than Nexon.

    I was expecting xuv a clean win.. but this looks like because of traction control Nexon always gets slow start.. no much difference. Nexon is always all rounder. No much compromise on anything ❤️❤️

  • sahil sharma

    The major drawback in Nexon’s performance is it’s automatic Traction control system, which can not be turned off, and as soon as the car launches it’s TCs comes into action, otherwise Nexon could’ve easily smoked the xuv300, and can easily beat any car of this segment if it’s Traction control System can be turned off!

    Traction control in Nexon is also playing its part causing a smooth launch with no wheel spin at all while we can clearly see wheel spin in XUV 300.

    Mahindra should change the interior of its xuv-300 it looks ugly and the rear as well moreover Tata should also change the rear of its nexon which looks like a turtle 🌜🌝🌛

    I think on long run, nexon will defeat xuv300. Because nexon have more power after mid range where as xuv300 has initial power. Nexon lover ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

    Also I feel in long race Nexon will surely beat XUV 300 as it runs out of breath at higher RPM and Nexon does Redline of around 4200 RPM, ( Altroz Diesel owner here same Nexon Diesel engine so the RPM guess is from my Altroz Diesel )

    Also drag depends on how much driver knows his car. Like put Nexon on 4th gear a bit late say seped of 60 and it will blow out the copetition easily!

    Now a days OEMs are providing advance safety features but they ignore simple but important feature of rear adjustable headrests. Many cars have very small fixed headrests at the rear in lower variants. Please take up with OEMs especially Tata (adjustable rear headrests only in XZ+ variant of Nexon)

    Tata compromises the power to efficiency. 1Sec gap hardly makes any difference as both these are 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟. I am leaning towards the Nexon as the XUV is Sangyong Tivoli and resembles Compact Creta. Ultimately both are Made in 🇮🇳
