Mahindra XUV300 is a sub-4 metre compact SUV from the Indian utility vehicle manufacturer. It competes with the cars like Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Tata Nexon and Ford EcoSport in the segment. It is recently got highest rating of 5-star in Global NCAP crash test which made Mahindra XUV300 the safest car in the segment. It is a feature loaded compact SUV with many segment first features like steering modes, heated ORVMs and so on. What if Mahindra plans to come up with a 7-seater version of the XUV300 and call XUV300 Plus (like TUV300 plus). How would it look like?, here we have video where an artist can be seen creating a render of the XUV300 plus.
The video has been uploaded by SRK Designs on their youtube channel. The artist starts by extending the rear of the car. The XUV300 plus will get a third row of seats and to accommodate that artist had increased the length of the car from the rear. The area after the C pillar gets a glass window that can’t be opened. Other changes include a blacked out roof, outside rear view mirrors and a chrome strip on the bottom of the window line to make it look more premium than regular XUV300.
The design of the alloy wheels are also new. The dual tone diamond cut alloy wheels are replaced by a 5-spoke chrome finished or silver coloured alloy wheels. Coming to the front, there are changes made to it. One of the unique design elements in the XUV300 was the long LED DRL that extended down to the bumper till the fog lamp area. That is not present in the 7-seater version and the bumper also gets a new design with chrome inserts around the foglamp area and a redesigned air dam with a skid plate.
Currently Mahindra XUV300 is powered by a 1.2 litre turbo petrol engine which is now BS6 compliant. The Petrol engine generates a maximum of 115 Bhp and 200 Nmof torque whereas the 1.5 litre turbo diesel engine produces 115 Bhp and 300 Nm of peak torque. Mahindra had showcased XUV300 Sportz which will be powered by Mahindra’s new 1.2 litre turbo petrol mStallion engine producing 127 bhp and 230 Nm of torque. Mahidnra is expected to launch the Sportz trim of the XUV300 later this year.
