The XUV 3XO is the first car in this segment to offer this feature.

Mahindra recently introduced the new XUV 3XO in the Indian market, with prices starting at Rs. 7.49 lakh (ex-showroom). The model also marked the debut of a panoramic sunroof in the segment, which was offered only up to the mid-size SUV segment until now.

Tata Motors is now believed to be working on a variant of the Nexon that will come equipped with a panoramic sunroof. The feature could be limited only to the higher-spec trims of the model at launch.


The Nexon seems to be facing heat from the XUV 3XO, as is evident from its instant response of introducing new variants with a lower price tag closer to that of the XUV 3XO. That said, it still commands a premium of Rs. 50,000, while missing out on a few features compared to Mahindra’s latest offering, including all four power windows, height-adjustable front seatbelts, electrically adjustable ORVMs, USB Type-C ports, and more.

Notably, the XUV 3XO, equipped with a panoramic sunroof, is available from the AX7 variant onwards, prices of which begin at Rs. 12.49 lakh (ex-showroom). The Nexon with this key feature is also expected to be priced around the same ballpark.
