Mahindra TUV300 Overvie
Mahindra TUV300 was the company’s first new-gen compact SUV. This made its entry after the company experimented with the Quanto. That vehicle didn’t do well due to multiple reasons and Mahindra did have a lot of learnings from that. The Mahindra TUV300 did have the tough and bold looks, it did appeal to many, but there were an array of launches that affected the sales. One of the major reasons was lack of power from the engine. Hence, this 1.5-litre got an upgrade in power to 100bhp making it good enough in performance. The AMT variant was also offered on the 100bhp engine.Check for Mahindra TUV300 On Road Price in Kolkata at CarzPrice
The TUV300 lacked the finesse, the features and the touch and feel of materials. This was premium in a lot of a vehicles making them a good option to consider.

We share all the details on this new TUV300 T10.
Mahindra TUV300 Outside
Taking inspiration from the ‘battle tank’, TUV300 has been shaped in a rather boxy manner which may or may not go well with the customer, reason being that some may find it tough and rugged while others may think that it is too plain jane to stand competition like Hyundai Creta, Maruti S-Cross, Ford EcoSport and Renault Duster. Mahindra TUV300 pictures of the outside testify the company’s attempt to come up with a rugged vehicle, but what really works for the SUV is that despite its small size it manages to appeal customers and is not mistaken for an oversized hatchback. Despite its sub-four meter length, the SUV does not seem petite or compressed, probably because it is not feature clad on the outside, the unnecessary styling to make it look sporty has been skipped which works well for it.
Front is bold, the engine hood is short and front apron is unusually wide. Radiator grille is reminiscent of Jeep and a hint of chrome is evident around the rectangular openings. Head lights are designed in such as way that fits well with the bold front end. Body coloured lower bumper gets square shaped fog lights featuring chrome surrounds. Air inlets are again wide that add to the aggressive stance. Wheel arches are rather rectangular than round, side view is simple, the black treatment around the window frame, dual tone power adjustable ORVMs, body painted outside door handles and window beltline altogether lends a suave look. Rear too has been designed in line with the rest of the body, a set of simple tail lights and mounted spare wheel are equipped on the tailgate. And the black painted roof rails have been atop appear sport
Mahindra TUV300 Inside
The interior of the Mahindra TUV300 mHawk100 remains the same as the mHawk80 model with the dual-tone cabin being loaded with a ton of equipment as the more powerful engined model is only offered in top spec T8 trim. Being a 7-seater, the TUV300 can be quite practical but one must remember, the last row of jump seats are best not used due to the lack of space and safety. Mahindra has increased the rear seat cushion by 30 mm while raising the under-thigh padding by 19 mm to better rear seat thigh support, it does help but still under-thigh support is a bit lacking due to the low height of the second row seat. The dashboard design is without doubt the best we have seen in any Mahindra vehicle and compare this with the NuvoSport, the TUV300’s interior looks at least two generations ahead.
