Mahindra TUV300 facelift to launch in 2021

Mahindra is currently India’s biggest UV manufacturer. They have a lot of SUVs and MPVs  in their line-up. One of the latest launches from the brand is Thar which a very popular off-road SUV. The demand is so high for the SUV that it is already sold out till My next year. Mahindra is also working on several other projects including all-new Scorpio and XUV500. Mahindra TUV300 is an sub-4 meter compact SUV that is currently not on sale as it is not BS6 compliant. They are expected to launch a facelifted, BS6 version of the SUV soon in the market. Here we have a video that shows how TUV300 might look like.

The video has been uploaded by SRK Designs on their Youtube channel. This channel has uploaded several real life-like renders of upcoming vehicles in the past. Some of them have also been shared on our website too. The render artist has created a facelifted version of TUV300 on the basis of the several spy pictures that have surfaced online. The render is heavily inspired by those images.

The artist starts by removing the front grille, air dam, fog lamps and headlamps. The artist completely redesigns the front grille. The new front grille is basically similar to what we have seen in Mahindra’s flagship SUV Alturas G4. Moving down, the fog lamps has been redesigned. The square shaped fog lamps have been removed for round one but, the garnish around the fog lamp retains the square like shape.

The air dam now has a trapezoidal shape which was a rectangle before. There is a honey comb or hexagonal shaped pattern in the air dam and front grille. The front grille also has a chrome strip running on the top with Mahindra logo in the centre, The headlamp on the rendered version of TUV300 is also different from the outgoing BS4 model. The car gets an LED DRL which was earlier missing and it seems like the turn indicators are also integrated into this. The LED DRLs actually act as an extension of the chrome strip on the front grille.

Apart from these minor changes, no other modifications are made to the design of TUV300. Once again, we are not sure whether Mahindra TUV300 BS6 version would look like the rendered image. The final version might look a bit different from this. Mahindra TUV300 is a boxy looking SUV which has a design inspired from army tank. The TUV300 has been spotted testing on road several times and it seems like only the front of the SUV will get minor changes. The rear gets the same old clear lens tail lights.

The BS4 version of  TUV300 got features like keyless entry, touchscreen infotainment screen, height adjustable driver seat, dual front airbags, ABS, EBD, rear parking sensors and so on. The BS6 version is expected to get an updated infotainment system that supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Mahindra TUV30 will continue to be available with a diesel engine. It will be powered by a BS6 compliant 1.5 litre diesel engine that generates 100 Ps and 240 Nm of torque. TUV300 will be available with a manual gearbox option only. Mahindra is expected to launch the BS6 TUV300 in the market soon.
