The TUV300 is one among the two sub-4 meter SUVs sold in India by Mahindra. The upcoming facelifted version of the sub-4 meter SUV was recently caught completely undisguised at a dealership. The spy shots revealed a whole lot about the upcoming TUV300 facelift that will be launched next month. The new model will get updated front and rear end along with some new features. If you are interested in the upcoming Mahindra TUV300, here is the car on video with a detailed walkaround review. Check out the video by gyani enough to see the new TUV300 on video.
As already mentioned, this is a facelifted version and hence not much has changed on the vehicle. The exteriors, as well as interiors, remain the same as so do the engines. However, Mahindra has tweaked the exteriors to make them look fresh and more appealing. This includes a new front grille with glossy black inserts along with a new bumper insert. The headlamps design too has been altered a bit while the tail lamps are now clear glass units. Rest of the vehicle is almost quite the same as the model it is set to replace.
Coming to the interiors, the cabin design is identical to the current model. However, there are some new features added to the list. Safety has also gone up as per the new AIS 145 safety norms. The TUV300 facelift will come with ABS, twin airbags, seat belt reminder, speed alerts and reverse parking sensors as standard across the range. As mentioned earlier, the engines are the same as on the existing model lineup. The 1.5-litre 3 cylinder diesel engine with twin-scroll turbochargers comes in two states of tune on the TUV300.
In the lower tune, the engine puts out 80 Bhp of power along with 230 Nm of torque while in the higher tune, the engine puts out 100 Bhp of power along with 240 Nm of torque. The lower state of tune gets a 5-speed manual gearbox as standard while the higher state of tune gets 5-speed manual and automated manual (AMT) gearbox options. The TUV300 is the only vehicle in its segment to be built upon a body-on-ladder construction. Further, it gets a rear wheel drive layout as standard opposed to the front wheel drive setup in most other sub-4 meter SUVs that are built on a monocoque frame. It also gets a 7 seat layout, making it the most practical among compact SUVs sold in India.
The pre-facelift Mahindra TUV300’s prices start from Rs. 8.44 lakhs and the prices of the facelifted version will definitely be higher than that. The TUV300 is perfect for those people who want a rugged built vehicle for use in suburban areas and need to travel over bad roads often.
