Mahindra has finally launched the TUV 300 plus after much rumors and unofficial sales in few states. The TUV 300 Plus is based on the TUV 300 compact SUV with an extended wheelbase which would target majority of the fleet owners, replacing the outgoing Xylo which failed to appease the masses.
The TUV 300 shares the front and back panels with the TUV 300 also the body seems to be very similar to the compact SUV. While headlamps and tail lamps are slightly tweaked. The TUV 300 Plus has a nine passengers seating arrangements making it a complete fleet suited. The TUV 300 Plus is powered by a more powerful engine 2.2 litre mHawk diesel engine, produces 120hp and 280Nm of torque which is mated to a six speed manual transmission. Further, the TUV 300 Plus comes with ECO mode for better fuel efficiency number. While the SUV also gets micro hybrid technology along with brake energy regeneration system.
The Interiors are very much similar to what we have seen in the sub-4 meter TUV 300 which has been designed by Mahindra Design team along with the inputs from Pininfarina to give the TUV 300 Plus more premium appeal. It comes with faux leather seats and has a 17.8cm touchscreen infotainment system with GPS navigation.
The SUV comes in three variants namely P4, P6 and P8. The 9 seater SUV is priced at 9.47 lakhs (Ex-Showroom) with color option of Bold Black, Majestic Silver, Dynamo Red, Glacier White and Molten Orange. The newly launched SUV would fill-in-the-blank space within 9-10 lakhs range as the Scorpio facelift has moved up and left the spaces.
The design though reflects the smaller sibling of TUV 300 Plus. Although it could have been more appealing in the outside. The sub-4 meter SUV TUV 300 looks very attractive considering its compact design while the TUV 300 Plus is just a extended version and looks under-worked boxy SUV.
