Days before launch, which is slated to be on September 10, an Indian Autos Blog reader has spied the interiors of the Mahindra TUV300. This is, in all probability, the mid-level variant, which could be dubbed as the T6. See completely undisguised images of the Mahindra TUV300 here.
The dual tone dashboard looks pretty ordinary, and is a sea of hard touch plastics. The trapezoidal centre console makes references to the Jeep Grand Cherokee’s, just like most of the exterior does. Being the mid-variant, there are appear to be no goodies as well. There is no touch-screen infotainment system to be found; instead there appears to be a 2-DIN system. The new steering wheel is basic, and we believe that the multi-function steering wheel teased earlier will only be available on the top-end variant.
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. The door trims are pretty bare, while the only chrome trimming that can be found are around the rotary HVAC controls. There are a few cubbyholes around, one over the center console, while the door bins look like they can swallow 1-litre bottles.
The top-end variant, the T8, is expected to come with chrome highlights around the HVAC louvres, a touch-screen equipped infotainment system, electric mirrors, a multi-function steering wheel with dull silver inserts, leather seasts (?), and front airbags as standard.

Do you think the TUV300 is a lazy effort by Mahindra, or perfectly suited for its intended clientèle? Let us know in the comments section below.
