Mahindra has started dispatching the Mahindra TUV300 Plus to dealerships. IAB reader Tanmay Gupta has shared live images of the new SUV from a dealership to provide a close look at its exterior and interior.
The Mahindra TUV300 Plus is a stretched, bigger version of the Mahindra TUV300 that arrived in 2015. At the front, the TUV300 features a differently designed bumper with a black insert at its bottom and black garnish near the fog lamps. On the sides, the difference between the two models is clearly evident with the bigger quarter glass and the more forward-leaning D-pillar. At the rear, the bumper and license plate housing have a different design. Also worth noticing, is the subtle rear spoiler up-top.
The Mahindra TUV300 Plus measures 4,398 mm in length, 1,815 in width and 1,837 mm in height. It has the same wheelbase as the Mahindra TUV300 - 2,680 mm. It is powered by the 2.2-litre mHawk120 diesel engine that develops a maximum power of 88.26 kW (118.31 hp) at 4,000 rpm. This engine is coupled to a 6-speed manual transmission. In the entry-level P4 grade, the TUV300 Plus offers side-facing seats for four passengers behind the second-row bench. Reports say that customers will have more seating layout options in other grades.
Mahindra has started delivering the Mahindra TUV300 Plus to select customers. The nationwide launch of the 9-seat SUV is yet to take place.
