The TUV300 will be available in mainly three variants - T4 (base), T6 (mid) and T8 (high). Based on these variants, the add-on features will be available in the plus (+) variants, further classifying them into seven variants overall (T4, T4+, T6, T6+, T6+ AMT, T8+, T8+ AMT). Features like power steering, power windows, air-conditioning, tilt-steering and an immobiliser are offered as standard across all variants. On the safety front, the T4 is the only variant which misses out on ABS and dual airbags are absent in the T4 and T6 variant.
The top-of-the-line T8+ benefits from electronically adjustable OVRMs, static bending headlamps, the micro hybrid technology and a four-inch display. A three-inch display is offered on the T6 and T6+ variant. The T4 and T4+ plus not only miss out on this, but also body coloured bumpers.
Mahindra's TUV300 will be powered by an advanced mHawk 80 series engine that will churn out 80bhp of power and 230Nm of torque. This mill comes mated to a five-speed manual gearbox, but customers can also opt for the AMT gearbox in the T6+ and T8+ variants.
The car will available in six new colours bold black, glacier white, majestic silver, molten orange, dynamo red and verve blue. These colours will be different from the colours of the other Mahindra products sold currently. The T8 will be available in all the six colours, the T6 in white, silver, black and red but the base T4 variant will be available only in silver, black and red.
