Mahindra unveiled the first sketches of the TUV 3OO compact SUV on July 30 and have now confirmed that the car will be launched on September 10.
The manufacturer had only revealed the first sketches of the car, codenamed U301, but it was spotted on test several times. Recently, an unmasked base variant of the car was spotted revealing a few specs of the car. The TUV 3OO is a sub four-metre vehicle and borrows cues from the Bolero and the design of the fascia is essentially a modernised version of the Bolero's front. The car sports a new pattern for the alloy wheels, square wheels arches and short overhangs. The straight roofline is in line with the squarish shape of the vehicle that comes equipped with a boot-mounted spare wheel.
There are no official details about the equipment list in the cabin of the TUV 3OO yet. However, we can expect all the standard features and accessories from the Scorpio and the refreshed XUV 500. Despite being a compact SUV, Mahindra has managed to put in two jump seats at the back like they did in the Quanto, making it a seven-seater.
Depending on the variant, the engines used will be one among the series of advanced mHawk 80 mills that have been developed in-house by the carmaker.
The Mumbai-based manufacturer will bring the TUV 3OO to the Indian car market just before the start of the festive season, providing prospective car buyers a new option to choose from the available cars. We expect the TUV 3OO to be a crucial vehicle as the compact SUV segment in India is going strong and enjoying a good demand quite lately. It will be slotted below the Bolero, which is one of the best-sellers for Mahindra. The TUV 3OO is expected to replicate this success and will go up against the Ford EcoSport, Renault Duster and the Hyundai Creta.
