Mahindra XUV300 is one of the popular SUV in the sub-4 meter compact SUV segment. It competes with cars like Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Hyundai Venue, Tata Nexon and Ford EcoSport in the segment. Mahindra had earlier launched the BS6 petrol version of the XUV300 and now Mahindra has launched the BS6 diesel version of the SUV.

The XUV300 BS6 diesel version is still powered by the same 1.5 litre turbocharged diesel engine. It is likely to generate the same amount of power as in the BS4 version. The BS4 version produced 115 Bhp and 300 Nm of peak torque. It is available with a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed AMT gearbox. Only the W6 BS6 AMT version of the XUV300 diesel has seen a marginal price hike of Rs 1,000 in comparison to the BS4 models.

This will help them grab customer’s attention as the sub-4 meter compact SUV segment is highly competitive. Mahindra has launched the BS6 diesel version of the XUV300 but the deliveries for the same will only be starting once the lockdown is lifted. Official launch of the BS6 version will be happening later this month.
