Mahindra will be upgrading their compact SUV, the TUV300, to the upcoming BS-VI emission norms soon. The BS-VI compliant TUV300 is likely to come out early next year. It was recently spotted undergoing testing at the Delhi-Jaipur expressway.
Mahindra will give the TUV300 a couple of exterior changes. These include revised headlamps and a new grille. There could also be some changes in its interior, which are yet to be revealed.
The updated TUV300 will retain most features seen on the current model. These include a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, in-built GPS navigation, remote locking and steering-mounted audio controls. As far as safety is concerned, the TUV300 consists of dual airbags, ABS with EBD, rear parking sensors and ISOFIX child seat mounts.
The 1.5 litre mHawk diesel motor will be undergoing an update to the BS-VI norms. It produces 101 BHP of power along with 240 Nm of torque. Transmission options include a 5-speed manual and 5-speed automatic units.
At present, the TUV300 is priced at Rs.8.54 lakh to Rs.10.55 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The BS-VI compliant TUV300 is likely to be costing a tad more than the current model of the vehicle. Mahindra will look to update its entire line-up before the norms kick-off from April 1 next year.
