It was recently reported by us that the TUV300 Plus, which is essentially a slightly bigger version of the company’s sub-4 metre offering, is about to launch and has already been dispatched to the dealers. Now, in the latest update, a handful of images show that the upcoming people’s mover has started reaching the authorized dealers. These Mahindra TUV300 Plus images have been taken at the Lucknow dealership of the company. The latest batch of images provides us with a good look at the exterior and the interior of the new offering.
The original TUV300 was launched in 2015. Less than a couple of years down the line, Mahindra has decided to come with a stretched version that can carry more occupants and luggage. The TUV 300 Plus also gets a bigger engine. The design has been left largely untouched, at least till the C-pillar. The rear quarter does see a larger overhang and forward leading D-pillars. Even the bumper and the registration plate enclosure has a different design at the rear. A rather interesting detail is the built-in roof spoiler at the rear.
