After the national launch yesterday, Mahindra TUV300 has been launched today in Chennai priced from Rs. 7.14 lacs ex-showroom. Mahindra TUV300 is the company’s second entry into the compact SUV segment, after the Quanto. But this time, Mahindra has launched a true blue SUV (as promoted by the company) and aims to offer a different experience in the fast growing sports utility segment. Built on a completely new platform, the TUV300 promises best-in-class space, performance and features in typical Mahindra way.
The TUV300 is powered by a 1.5-litre mHawk engine with 2-stage turbocharger putting out 84 hp and class-leading 230 Nm of torque. The TUV300 also offers first-in-class 5-speed AMT gearbox along with the option of a 5-speed manual transmission.
The interiors get a special mention as the TUV300 features upmarket design, which was worked out in partnership with the famous Italian design firm, Pininfarina.
On the safety front, the TUV offers dual front airbags and ABS with EBD. The boot space is 384 litres, which can be extended to 720 litres with the second row seats folded (which is sadly available in top end variants only). Other features include static-bending headlamps, Intellipark reverse assist, steering mounted audio and phone controls, voice messaging system, micro-hybrid technology and Bluesense mobile app.
