Few days ago, Mahindra & Mahindra had revealed the upcoming XUV300 for the Indian market. Based on the Ssangyong Tivoli, the baby XUV500 will debut in the Indian market by February 2019. However, the manufacturer has commenced the bookings for the sub- compact SUV at a fully refundable token amount of Rs 50,000 at some dealerships in the country. The company is all set to offer few segment- first features on the new XUV 300 such as the dual-zone climate control system, disc brakes on all four wheels, the longest wheelbase in the segment and highest torque output.
The new Mahindra XUV300 is likely to draw power from a 1.5- litre diesel engine along with a 1.2- litre petrol engine where both the engines will come mated to a six-speed transmission for now and the AMT will follow later. The diesel motor produces 121 bhp and 300 Nm, while the petrol mill is good enough for 120 bhp.
