Mahindra TUV 300 facelift gets a new tail lamp along with revised bumpers and a new headlamp with integrated DRLs while retaining same diesel engines
Mahindra is working on an update for the TUV 300 and the upcoming model has been spotted testing on public roads. The latest spy shots reveal the revised rear of the TUV 300 as the company has given a new design for tail lamps and its clear lens type. The spare wheel cover also gets a new design along with an updated bumper for the compact SUV.
The company has given a new design for the alloy wheels. The changes to the front include a new grille and revised headlamps with integrated DRL in it. The front bumper is also new and top-spec models come with integrated fog lamps also. The changes to the interior are limited to just new colour options and improved quality.
We can expect the TUV 300 facelift model to come with some new features like updated infotainment system with Android Auto, climate control, steering mounted controls, electronically controlled exterior mirrors and more. The compact SUV will come with dual airbags, ABS with EBD, driver seat belt reminder as part of the standard features.
While the top-spec model comes with speed alert system, co-passenger seat belt reminder and rear camera with parking sensors. The chassis might get some updates to meet the upcoming safety norms and the materials used for the body will be much stronger than the current model. The KUV 100 is also expected to get similar updates soon.
The engine lineup for TUV 300 is expected to be carried over from the current model and the 1.5 L 3-cylinder diesel engine produces 100 bhp of max power at 3,750 rpm and 240 Nm of torque between 1,600 – 2,800 rpm. This engine will be mated to a 5-speed manual and AMT gearbox options. The engineers will update the engine to meet BSVI norms.
The manufacturers are only allowed to sell BSIV vehicles till March 31 and most of the manufacturers are working on BSVI engines to meet the deadline. We can expect the company to introduce BSVI engines for Marazzo and XUV 300 by the end of this year or early next year. The updated TUV 300 will be launched later this year.
