Mahindra continues to rule SUV segment one way or the other. After launching products one after the other two years back, this year it has decided to launch facelifts, but it also managed to launch new freshly baked TUV300 as well.
After selling the most UV’s out there, Mahindra has created a milestone this time around as it has sold over 1.5 lakh units over the past four years in both export and domestic market.
