Reportedly first pictures of the updated SUV reaching the stockyards have surfaced online. The TUV300 is on sale since 2015 in the Indian market and has seen only a mediocre success. We can confirm that the new TUV300 is expected to be sold with only a 100hp, 1.5-litre, three-cylinder diesel engine, mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. Sources tell us that the 80hp variant of the same engine will be given a miss.
Additionally, Mahindra is also expected to discontinue the Ricardo-sourced AMT gearbox that was plagued with multiple issues. This means the model will be sold in just one engine and gearbox combination and we can also confirm that the TUV300 will come with five variants starting with the entry-level T4+, followed by the T6+, T8, T10 and a new top-spec variant that is likely to be called T10 (O).
Moreover the refreshed TUV300 gets several styling tweaks like an updated front grille and bumper and smoked headlamps at least on the top-spec variants. The updated TUV300 sees no changes on the sides except a slightly darker shade of alloy wheels. Moving on to the back, the SUV now gets clear tail-lamps and an add-on rear spoiler. On the inside, expect minor cosmetic tweaks on the SUV.
