In this latest spy video, the rear-end of the Mahindra XUV300 facelift has been revealed. The XUV300 is one of Mahindra’s top-selling products, thanks to its dynamic performance as a compact SUV. It has consistently held a prominent position in this segment over an extended period. Notably, it boasts the most potent turbo petrol engine in its class, delivering an impressive 130 hp. However, recognizing the escalating competition in this category, the Indian automotive giant is gearing up to introduce a contemporary iteration of the XUV300. We might see the launch in early 2024. Here are the details from the latest update.
Mahindra XUV300 Facelift Rear-End Revealed
This video comes from Harsh VLOGS on YouTube. It contains the host talking about the latest leaked spy images of the upcoming compact SUV. I have come across many photos from the ongoing testing phase of the XUV300. While all of them wear a heavy camouflage, the overall silhouette is becoming more and more clear with each new sighting. In this latest case, the rear section of the SUV becomes somewhat apparent. Full disclosure, the host of this video also claims that he has rendered the rear profile in one of the images based on the multiple real-life spy shots. There is a connected LED taillamp cluster which lends a rather modern appeal to the already handsome SUV. Apart from that, there will be minor updates to the exterior and a possible inclusion of ADAS.

We anticipate no alterations to the engine and gearbox options. The vehicle is expected to retain the popular 1.2-litre 3-cylinder turbo petrol engine, available in two versions – one generating 110 hp and 200 Nm, and the other delivering 130 hp and 230 Nm of peak power and torque. Additionally, there’s a 1.5-litre diesel engine with an output of 115 hp and 300 Nm. Both engine choices will offer the flexibility of a 6-speed manual transmission or an AMT gearbox. It remains to be seen whether Mahindra will opt to substitute this AMT with a torque converter automatic transmission. Currently, the XUV300 is priced between Rs 7.99 lakh and Rs 14.76 lakh, ex-showroom. The facelift is expected to come at a slightly higher cost than these prices.
