Following the teaser of the front wing, Mahindra has dropped yet another teaser of the highly anticipated Mahindra TUV300 SUV, this time revealing a portion of the interior that includes the steering wheel and instrument cluster.
As seen in the teaser, the steering wheel has a silver garnish on the lower spokes, and features controls for the audio and bluetooth telephony. The instrument dials have chrome bezels, and comes standard with a speedometer and tachometer. Also, most of the warning lights are concentrated on the upper portion between the two dials.
If you notice carefully, the electric mirror adjustment is located underneath the driver’s side HVAC vent, which has silver bezels.

A 5-speed manual will be offered as standard, while older spyshots have indicated that an AMT gearbox could also be equipped as an option in higher variants.
The Mahindra TUV300 will launch in September, with reports narrowing it down to September 10. It is expected to be priced to INR 6.5 – 9 lakhs (ex-showroom). Mahindra could also export the TUV300 to countries like Sri Lanka, Nepal South Africa, Philippines, Tunisia and Chile.
