Mahindra TUV300 Plus likely to make its debut at the Auto Expo 2018. Engines specs similar to the Delhi-spec Scorpio. Will offer multiple seating configurations
The Mahindra TUV300 Plus has been spied once again. The upcoming Mahindra UV is basically a longer version of the TUV300 sub-4 metre SUV and can carry up to 9 passengers. The new Mahindra TUV300 Plus launch will take place in the first-quarter of next year and it will replace the ageing Xylo MPV in the company’s product portfolio. The TUV300 Plus looks a lot like the donor model until the C-pillar, after which it has a longer overhang and a much more forward-leaning D-pillar. We aren’t big fans of the way the new model looks but that doesn’t affect the higher practicality this model would offer in any way whatsoever.
Of course, the new Mahindra TUV300 is longer than 4-metres and hence, its manufacturer has decided to ditch the TUV’s 1.5-litre turbocharged oil-burner in favour of a bigger engine. Powering the new UV will be the same 1.99-litre Diesel engine that powers the Delhi-spec Scorpio.

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 TUV300+ will become a replacement for the fast-ageing Xylo MPV. Going by the spy images, it does seem like the company is almost done with readying the longer TUV model. Built on a more modern platform, the new TUV model will be available in multiple seating configurations.

As the TUV 300 Plus draws power from the same mHawkD120 engine as the Delhi-spec Scorpio, it could return an overall fuel mileage of close to 16.5 kmpl in regular usage. The bigger TUV will surely aim many fleet operators. Thanks to the extra seats, it has the potential to achieve considerable success in the commercial vehicle market.

With an overall mileage of 16.5 kmpl, this car will definitely attract many buyers in the commercial vehicles space.
