Mahindra has launched the facelifted version of the TUV300 in India. The SUV has been priced at INR 8.38 lakh and tops out at INR 10.17 lakh. Major updates of the facelifted TUV300 can be seen up front.
The TUV300 features a new grille, smoked headlights with DRLs on top and a skid plate at the bottom. Over on the back, the TUV300 gets clear-lens tail-lights, an X-shaped spare wheel cover, and a small, roof-mounted spoiler. The side profile of the TUV300 sees no changes except for the alloy wheels that are now finished in grey.
On the inside, the TUV300 comes plush with faux leather upholstery to up the comfort. The TUV300 facelift has been equipped with a reverse camera, 7.0-inch infotainment screen, GPS navigation, steering-mounted audio and telephony controls with a center console that gets a faux brushed aluminum and piano black finish. The driver and co-driver inside the top variant of the TUV300 facelift now get lumbar support adjustment as well. Also, the TUV300 facelift now includes a driver airbag, along with ABS, rear parking sensors, seat-belt warning and a speed warning system as standard across all variants along with dual-front airbags, ISOFIX mounts in the second row and Cornering Brake Control (CBC) on higher variants.
What remains the same in the TUV300 is the oil burner under the bonnet which is the same 1.5-liter three-cylinder diesel engine, which is paired to a 5-speed manual gearbox that makes a hundred horses and 240 Nm of torque. The car also gets a 2-stage turbocharger, which maximizes performance and increases the turbo life. However, the underpowered 1.5-liter diesel making 80 bhp is no longer offered by Mahindra. Apart from this, Mahindra is offering two new color options for the TUV300 – Highway Red and Mystic Copper.
