In the meantime, here is all that we know about the new compact SUV thus far.
- The Mahindra TUV300 is said to feature a 1.5-litre mHawk80 diesel engine with a twin-scroll turbocharger, 84 bhp and 230 Nm of torque.
- The new engine is a heavily retuned version of the 4-cylinder unit of the Quanto, and will offer advantages in terms of refinement, driveability and fuel efficiency, though the power output will be lesser by 20hp. No petrol options will be offered at the launch
- Power will be sent to the rear wheels via a 5-speed manual transmission, or an optional automated manual transmission (AMT) with 5 speeds, which has been indigenously developed in-house. .
- Styling highlights on the exterior include a boxy, “battle-tank inspired” design with similarities to Jeep
- The bumper is square, with square fog lamps and a square (okay, rectangular), mesh-filled air dam. The headlamps rebel to be un-squared, and are granted some flow into their style. Shards of chrome on the grille and around the fog lamps try to pep things up. The designers have added a clam-shell bonnet to the mix too.
- The sides get square wheel arches with mild flares, a prominent character line that emanates from the headlamps, a slab like, straight roofline, an inclined C-pillar, blacked out B and D pillars, roof rails and relatively short overhangs to keep the overall length under 4 meters.
- The upright back end reflects the lines from the sides, including the design of the tailgate mounted spare wheel cover, which is a visual continuation of the character lines. A conventional bumper, carefully trimmed to keep the length in check, and forgettable tail lamps characterize the rest of the TUV300’s rear end.
- The car will have a seven seater layout with jump seats at the back and dual tone interiors
- Check out the spy images of the TUV300 here
- The TUV300 will be available in three variants; T4, T6 and T8.
- The T4 will be the basic variant, and feature ABS and front air-bags; both optional, along with a choice of three exterior colours – silver, black and red, paired to unpainted bumpers, door handles and mirrors.
- The T6 will come with body coloured plastic parts, while an extra black exterior colour gets added to the palette. It is also said to feature the optional AMT gearbox, along with optional ABS and front airbags.
- The T8 variant will offer as many as six exterior colours, which include red, white, silver, black, blue and orange. Also on the offing will be alloy wheels, ABS and front airbags as standard, and the optional AMT gearbox. Other goodies would include a touch-screen infotainment system with Bluetooth connectivity and AUX-in/USB ports and steering mounted audio controls.
- On the inside, the dual tone dashboard looks pretty ordinary. The trapezoidal centre console makes references to the Jeep Grand Cherokee’s, just like most of the exterior does.
- The power window buttons are placed on the central tunnel to keep costs in check, but at least they could have been placed on the driver’s side.
- There are a few cubbyholes around, one over the center console, while the door bins look like they can swallow 1-litre bottles.
- Bookings of the Mahindra TUV300 have commenced across the country, with the token amount being INR 20,000.
- The sub-4 meter long SUV bears fuss-free, clean styling, albeit boxy, that’ll probably appeal to semi-urban and rural folks to whom the TUV300 is primarily targeted at.
- The TUV300 won’t be replacing the Bolero, which will continue to enjoy its position as India’s best selling utility vehicle for some time to come.
- The TUV300 has been mostly designed and developed by Mahindra’s inhouse design team and the R&D has been carried out at the Mahindra Research Valley in Chennai. The vehicle will be manufactured at Mahindra’s Chakan plant in Pune, Maharashtra.
