The Mahindra TUV300 Plus has finally made it to the Indian market. Its P4 9-seater variant is priced at Rs 9.57 lakh. It’s basically a longer version of the TUV300 sub-4 meter compact SUV. Other than the longer body and more seats, the TUV300 Plus also comes with a more powerful engine in the form of the company’s 2.2-litre mHawk oil-burner. The motor comes mated to a six-speed manual transmission that sends power to the rear wheels. ABS and airbags are not available.
Here’s a detailed walk-around video of the company’s latest offering.
The vlogger starts with giving a description of the car’s front-end. He says that at the front, the new TUV300 Plus variant looks much like the TUV300. However, you don’t get any fog lamps. There’s piano finish around the fog lamp housings, chrome-inserts for the headlamps, piano-finish on the seven grille slats and a honeycomb lower grille.
In the side profile, you’ll be quick to notice that the TUV300 Plus looks much longer than the TUV300 SUV it’s based on. There are no alloy wheels or black cladding on the pillars, which gives this UV a slightly utilitarian look. The rear view mirrors and the door handles are not body-coloured. There’s a mHawk D-120 badge on each fender. There are no roof rails on offer. The tail lamps are new and the wrap-around tail lamps look completely different from what’s available on the TUV300.
At the rear, you get a plastic cover for the spare wheel. Opening the tailgate reveals two jump seats that can seat occupants. Folding these seats enhances the luggage carrying capacity by a huge margin. The interior gets a dual tone beige-black finish. The seats don’t get height adjustment and there’s no keyless-entry with push-button start. ORVMs get a manual internal adjustment. The dashboard doesn’t get any sort of chrome garnishing. The instrument console gets a tachometer, speedometer and a MID that shows temperature gauge, fuel gauge, and gear indicator. The power windows switches are provided near the handbrake. There’s no infotainment system on offer.
Like we said, the TUV300 Plus gets a 2.2-litre mHawk diesel engine that outputs 120 bhp-280 Nm. The car measures 4,389 meters in length and has a wheelbase of 2,680 meters. It’s available in a choice of four colours – Bold Black, Majestic Silver, Dynamo Red and Glacier White.
