- The TUV300 facelift gets mild cosmetic changes with revised features list.
- Expected to be launched in the coming few weeks.
- The TUV300 Plus will also get the same updates.
The updated Mahindra TUV300 was previously spotted undergoing testing on many occasions. But now, the new TUV300 facelift was spotted undisguised at a dealer’s yard ahead of the official launch. The sub-four metre SUV gets subtle cosmetic changes with the update along with revised features list and powertrain options.
The TUV300 facelift comes with a restyled front grille and bumper design. The headlamps get a smoky finish while there are clear taillamps at the back. This could be the top-spec variant and it gets darker alloy wheels and a rear spoiler for added sportiness. The cabin remains more or less unchanged, but additional equipment has been installed, in line with the changing norms. So the refreshed TUV gets driver airbag, ABS, rear parking sensors, seat-belt warning and speed warning as standard across all variants.
Talking about variants, the TUV300 will be available in five variants – entry-level T4+, T6+, T8, T10 and the top-spec T10 (O). Under the hood will be a single powertrain option as before, with no probability of petrol engine yet. This will be the same 1.5-litre diesel producing 100bhp. And the AMT gearbox will reportedly be discontinued with the update.
The TUV300 has been around for almost half a decade now. This will be the first major update for the ladder-on-frame sub-four-metre SUV since its introduction. When it goes on sale in a few weeks’ time, the prices are expected to be slightly higher than the current model. Meanwhile, the TUV300 Plus will also follow suit.
