Range topping variant gets body colored bumpers and 15 inch alloy wheels.
Ahead of its launch in September (reportedly September 10), the Mahindra TUV300 has been spotted undisguised for the second time, courtesy of Team-BHP.
In this instance, however, the Mahindra TUV300 spotted appears to be of a range-topping variant, as evidenced by the body colored bumpers, chrome inserts for the Jeep-inspired grille, 15 inch alloy wheels, rear parking sensors, a step integrated for access into the third row in the rear, and a body-color plastic cover for the spare wheel.
The latest teaser of the Mahindra TUV300 revealed the steering wheel and instrument cluster of the top-spec Mahindra TUV300. It gets silver garnish on the steering wheel, which also features controls for the audio and bluetooth telephony. The TUV300 will also have a 7 seater option in its sub-4m length.
The instrument dials have chrome bezels, and comes standard with a speedometer and tachometer, while the warning lights are concentrated on the upper portion between the two dials. It also is equipped with electric mirror adjustment located underneath the driver’s side HVAC vent, which has silver bezels.
Powering the Mahindra TUV300 is a new mHawk 80 diesel engine, which is, reportedly, a revised version of the 1.5-liter 3 cylinder from the Mahindra Quanto. Transmission options include a 5-speed manual and an AMT option (revealed in spyshots), while an AWD system will not be offered when launched.
Prices are expected to hover between 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.
