The Mahindra TUV300 will gain various safety upgrades to meet the more stringent norms that will become effective in the second half of the year.

Mahindra had launched the TUV300 in September 2015, and three years later, it is working on a minor model change. The above spy shot shows the updated model with new, clear-lens tail lamps and a new spare wheel cover. The new spare wheel cover hidden with camouflage is the X-shaped piece that was seen on the TUV300 Endurance edition at Auto Expo 2016. The metallic grey alloy wheels are from the current model.

The Mahindra TUV300 already features ABS with EBD, driver Seat Belt Reminder and dual-front airbags as standard. With the MY2019 update, it will gain co-driver Seat Belt Reminder and speed alert system - both as standard. Moreover, rear parking sensors, which are currently excluded in the entry-level T4+ and T6+ grades, will become standard. More importantly, the new model will have a revised body structure to meet the BNVSAP crash test norms.

The 2019 Mahindra TUV300 could come with a BS-VI compliant version of the 1.5-litre mHawk100 three-cylinder diesel engine that produces 100 bhp at 3,750 rpm and 240 Nm of torque at 1,600-2,800 rpm in BS-IV form. However, much depends on the launch timeline. Several automakers are planning to rollout the BS-VI upgrade only closer to the deadline, to avoid their vehicles becoming too pricey against the competition. The transmission choices should remain 5-speed manual and 5-speed automated manual.
