The 2020 Mahindra TUV300 mainly gets a fresh new design and will come with new interiors as well. The new TUV300 will also be BS-VI compliant when its launched in 2020.
A new spy image of a certain Mahindra SUV has surfaced on the internet and by what we can understand, it seems to be the 2020 Mahindra TUV300. The TUV300 just received a facelift a couple of months ago which included some cosmetic changes on the exterior and some on the interiors too. However, the TUV300 is an ageing product but one of Mahindra’s better selling products. Thus, Mahindra is readying the next-generation TUV300 which will likely debut in 2020.
As seen from the spy image, the vehicle was heavily camouflaged. Only the front profile is visible in the image but we can still make out certain differences. First up, there’s a new honeycomb mesh grille with six horizontal slats, much like all other newer Mahindra SUVs. The headlamps fitted to the test mule are only for testing and most likely the production model will get completely different headlamps. The headlamp though still looks quite similar and there will be LED DRLs as well.
The bumper has also grown taller and it now houses a larger air dam on the front. The bumper also seems more sculpted than before and we hope Mahindra finally gets rid of those square fog lamps. Elsewhere, the bonnet and wing mirrors look similar to the current car and it also retains the upright, boxy stance that it has always had. At the rear, expect some revisions to the tail lights and bumpers as well.
The 2020 Mahindra TUV300 is also expected to receive some major revisions to the interiors. Most likely, it will adopt some design cues from the next-gen Mahindra Scorpio. The TUV300 is based on a ladder frame chassis like the Scorpio, and both these cars will likely share a lot of components with each other.
The TUV300 is powered by a 1.5L, mHawk, four-cylinder diesel engine which produces 100 bhp and 240 Nm of peak torque. The engine comes mated to a five-speed manual transmission. The 2020 Mahindra TUV300 will continue with the same powertrain but it will be BS-VI compliant. The new TUV300 will also comply to the latest safety norms and it is likely to launch before April, 2020.
