The Mahindra XUV300 has become the first Mahindra model to receive the BS-VI upgrade, albeit partially. Its petrol engine variant has been upgraded to the upcoming emission norms and priced from INR 8.30 lakh*, while its diesel engine variant is yet to be.

As for the diesel engine of the Mahindra XUV300, it’s a BS-IV compliant 1.5-litre turbocharged four-cylinder unit that develops 116.6 PS at 3,750 rpm and 300 Nm of torque at 1,500-2,500 rpm. It can be had with a 6-speed manual transmission or a 6-speed automated manual transmission. This engine will also get the BS-VI upgrade, but a little later.
The BS-VI Mahindra XUV300 petrol’s prices range from INR 8.3-11.84 lakh*. The BS-IV Mahindra XUV300 petrol was priced from INR 8.1-11.64 lakh*.
In other updates, a 1.2-litre naturally aspirated direct-injection petrol engine is in the works for the Mahindra XUV300. This engine has been confirmed to be offered in Europe. The rollout of the pure electric powertrain in this SUV is facing delay, and it will be done in "sometime probably in the first or second quarter of FY22," Dr. Pawan Goenka, MD, Mahindra & Mahindra, had revealed last month.
