Mahindra already has a presence in the 7-15 lakh space, with the likes of TUV300, NuvoSport and XUV500 having established themselves in the market.

|Mahindra TUV 300 (TUV 300 XL)||February 2018|
The launch of the Mahindra TUV300 Plus is expected to take place in February 2018 at the Auto Expo 2018. Mahindra’s sub 4 meter SUVs, viz. TUV300, NuvoSport and KUV100, are facing heat from fresher rivals. The strong selling XUV500 has now come under threat from the new Tata Hexa. There are some chances that the new TUV300 + would replace the Xylo.
Spy images and test mules show that the new model isn’t too far from its launch. The upcoming Mahindra model will replace the Xylo in the company’s product portfolio. Built on a more modern platform, the new TUV model will be available in multiple seating configurations.

Mahindra TUV300 Plus Review – Exterior Design
The TUV300 Plus more or less resembles the TUV300. It’s basically an extended TUV 300. The taillamps have been revised to give the rear a slightly different look. Also, the car is longer after the C-pillar. Mahindra could extend the tail a little to accommodate a third row of seats, similar what we have seen with the Bolero and Bolero Plus models. Apart from the extended tail, the rest of the UV is largely similar to the compact SUV. Based on the latest spy shots, the grille, headlamp, bumpers, etc are identical to the TUV300. New additions on the top-end model could include a new alloy wheels design and LED daytime running lights.
Mahindra TUV300 Interior Review
Much like the exterior, even the interior will remain identical to the TUV300’s. It will get the same two-tone dashboard, steering wheel, instrument console, etc. Even the features list will be carried over unchanged. A 2-DIN audio system with AUX, USB and Bluetooth support, dual front airbags, manual air conditioning, etc. will all find their way into the equipment list of the TUV 300 Plus. Top-end trims of the TUV300 + could feature a touchscreen infotainment system with navigation support and a reverse parking camera display.
The new Mahindra car will offer more seats. There will be multiple seating configurations. The base model will offer as many as 9 seats. The high no. of seats will help this model attract the fleet operators.
