Mahindra TUV 300 Plus review
Mahindra has launched the TUV300 Pus in India with prices starting at Rs 9.47 lakh (ex-showroom Mumbai). The SUV will be available in three variants, namely P4, P6 and P8. As the name suggests, the Plus is a stretched version of Mahindra’s sub-4-metre SUV. The TUV300 Plus is powered by the 2.2-litre mHawk motor that also powers the Scorpio and the XUV500.
The Mahindra TUV300 Plus is an extended version of the sub-4 metre SUV. It’s 4400mm long, 1835mm wide and 1820mm tall. Compare that to the regular TUV300, and it’s 405mm longer and 3mm taller. The width and the 2680mm wheelbase remain identical. Save for the redesigned tail, the Plus looks very much like its boxy cousin.
TUV300 Plus borrows heavily from the standard TUV300. The layout of the dash is the same and a 7.0-inch touchscreen, manual air-conditioning, and steering-mounted audio controls in the top-spec P8 variant. There are quite a few misses, including basics such as third-row AC vents and a charging socket. The big draw for the Plus is its 9-seater configuration, which is a 2+3+4 layout.
Mahindra has plonked in the 2.2-litre mHawk engine that also does duty in the XUV500 and the Scorpio. It runs a lower state of tune at 120PS and 320Nm. The motor is paired with a 6-speed manual transmission. There’s no automatic transmission on offer. Mahindra will employ 2.2-liter mHawk diesel engine putting out Max Power of 120 BHP. This motor will be coupled with 6-speed manual transmission and expect the mileage figures to be around 18-20 kmpl.
Mahindra TUV 300 Plus Price: The new Mahindra TUV 300 Plus is expected to be priced between Rs 9.98- 11.47 lakhs
