Mahindra’s new TUV300 will now make 16bhp more than the existing version and will be available only on the top end variants, namely T8 and T8 AMT. Along with the bump up in power output, torque for this engine has also increased from 230Nm to 240Nm. Mahindra added that while the manual T8 version will be sold with both the 100bhp and 84bhp engines, the T8 AMT will now only come with the mHawk100 motor.
President & chief executive (Automotive- M&M), Pravin Shah, said, “At Mahindra it has always been our endeavour to incorporate consumer insights and feedback and hence we are happy to introduce the more powerful TUV300 with the mHawk100 engine. Further the TUV300 AMT T8 variant will offer a more thrilling drive with the upgraded power. With over 25,000 TUV300s on Indian roads, it has emerged as a strong player in its segment. With its all new powerful engine, the TUV300 will become an even more compelling value proposition for our customers.”
