- It is expected to be launched in India in the months to come.
- Mahindra XUV300 will get a six-speed AutoShift AMT.
- The same gearbox will also make its way into the Marazzo.
Ahead of its launch in India, the AMT version of Mahindra XUV300 was spotted testing during a TVC shoot. While the company is yet to announce the launch date of the XUV300 AMT, we expect it to be launched in India in the months to come.
The Mahindra XUV300 will come with a six-speed AMT, which will be available on both, petrol as well as diesel engines. With the addition of an AMT, the XUV300 will join the bandwagon of other compact SUVs like Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza and Tata Nexon, which gets a similar two-pedal technology. On the other hand, Ford EcoSport (torque converter) and the recently launched Hyundai Venue (dual-clutch) feature proper automatic transmissions.
Despite the compact SUV segment being highly competitive and overly crowded, the Mahindra XUV300 has successfully managed to carve out a niche for itself. The SUV has been consistently selling over 4,000 units per month since its launch in India. The company sold 4,200 units of the XUV300 in April 2019, thus becoming the second-most selling compact SUV in its segment.
Mahindra XUV300 packs several first-in-segment features like dual-zone automatic climate control, heated ORVMs, seven airbags, all four-wheel disc brakes and steering modes among others. Powering the XUV300 is a 115bhp/200Nm 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol motor and a 115bhp/300Nm 1.5-litre turbocharged diesel engine. Both the powertrains are available with a six-speed manual gearbox.
