Mahindra XUV300 Facelift Spied – Showcases Bigger Touchscreen | V3Cars

Test mules of the Mahindra XUV300 facelift were caught on camera recently and the updated B2-segment SUV looks ready to hit the production line. The latest XUV300 spy shots show several variants of the SUV undergoing testing. Various reports suggest Mahindra could launch the XUV300 facelift in the coming weeks.

Mahindra XUV300 Facelift Gets Bigger Touchscreen

The biggest change inside the cabin of the XUV300 facelift is the thoroughly revised dashboard layout. Based on the spy shots, we can confirm the XUV300 facelift will feature the XUV400 electric SUV’s dashboard layout with the large 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system taking pride of place. While the instrument cluster is not visible in the spy shots, we expect the XUV300 facelift to feature the same digital driver’s display as the XUV400 EV.

Below the new touchscreen, Mahindra could offer touch-based HVAC controls. The centre console gains a new wireless charging pad for smartphones and Mahindra have replaced the handbrake lever with an electronic parking brake. While the test mule features a single-pane sunroof, reports suggest the top variant of the XUV300 facelift could get an optional panoramic sunroof as well.

The rest of the cabin, including the steering wheel, seats, front centre armrest and door cards, remain the same design as before. We expect Mahindra to continue offering the 1.2-litre turbo petrol with the lower power output and the 1.5-litre turbo diesel with beige interiors, while variants equipped with the 1.2-litre turbo petrol with the higher power output and direct injection will retain its all-black cabin.

In terms of safety features, the spy shots reveal 3-point seatbelts for all 5 passengers, which is not available in the current SUV. Additionally, Mahindra could also offer ADAS features with the updated XUV300 facelift.

2024 XUV300 Facelift Exterior Changes

While the design changes on the exterior of the XUV300 facelift are not visible due to the extensive use of camouflage, we expect the updated B2-segment SUV to borrow several styling cues from Mahindra’s upcoming range of BE electric SUVs. Mahindra are expected to equip the XUV300 facelift with new LED headlamps and C-shaped LED DRLs reminiscent of the concept version of the upcoming BE.05 electric SUV. The headlamps seem slimmer than before and equipped with LED projection technology. Moreover, the fog lamps are likely to be repositioned higher on the front bumper, aligning with the design language of Mahindra's upcoming BE electric SUV series. Alongside these changes, an updated front grille and bumper are also expected.

The side profile of the XUV300 facelift is likely to remain largely unchanged. However, we could expect Mahindra to equip the facelift with a new set of alloy wheels. At the rear, Mahindra are likely to give the XUV300 facelift a connected LED tail lamp setup, which is all the rage these days. The spy shots reveal a C-shaped lighting signature for the tail lamps as well. The rear bumper continues to end quite abruptly to meet sub-4m passenger car requirements. The tailgate could get an update as well.

2024 Mahindra XUV300 Facelift Powertrain Options

We expect the Mahindra XUV300 facelift to feature the same powertrain options as the current model. The XUV300 is currently powered by 3 engine options – a 1.2L turbo petrol with multipoint fuel injection, a 1.2L turbo petrol with direct injection and a 1.5L turbo diesel engine.

The 1.2L turbo petrol with multipoint fuel injection puts out 110PS of power and 200Nm of torque and comes with a 6-speed manual transmission. The 1.2L turbo petrol with direct injection produces 130PS of power and 230Nm of torque and comes with 2 transmission options – a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed automated manual transmission (AMT). The 1.5-litre turbo diesel generates 117PS of power and 300Nm of torque. It is offered with the 6-speed MT and 6-speed AMT.

When launched, the XUV300 will continue to rival the Tata Nexon, Hyundai Venue, Kia Sonet, Maruti Arena Brezza, Nissan Magite and Renault Kiger. Currently, the XUV300 is priced between Rs. 8.0 lakh and Rs. 14.75 lakh (ex-showroom).
