Mahindra will also offer a dual-tone dashboard with the touchscreen infotainment system, steering mounted controls, cruise control, sunroof, leather seats and more. The engine details have not been revealed yet but Mahindra is expected to launch an all-new 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine with the XUV 300. The diesel variants of the car are expected to get the same 1.5-litre, four-cylinder diesel engine that also powers the Mahindra Marazzo. At the moment, only a manual transmission would be on offer for the XUV 300 but soon, the Indian manufacturer would launch the AMT automatic transmission with the all-new XUV 300.

Interestingly, this is an FWD monocoque car. It would not get any 4X4 option even at a later stage. The Mahindra XUV 300 would take on the likes of Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Tata Nexon and Ford EcoSport. However, it would be priced at a premium and the higher-end variants would fall in the Hyundai Creta price segment. Mahindra would formally announce the price of the vehicle soon n India and it would be followed by a long wheelbase version of the vehicle that gets 7-seats.
