Jeep, the iconic American SUV brand has its following across the globe including India. It was only last year when the brand officially entered the Indian market with two of its highly-successful – Grand Cherokee and Wrangler. But their pricing did break many hearts. Anyway, this didn’t stop a Jeep enthusiast turn his newly-possessed Mahindra TUV300 into a Cherokee. People may have different opinions on this modification, but we think it definitely looks a lot better than the original TUV300.
Comprehensive design changes have made on the front fascia of the car. Ditching the regular headlamps, the modified Mahindra TUV300 features Bi-Xenon units identical to the Audi Q3.
Similar to the Jeep Cherokee, there is a unique seven-slat body-coloured grille with brushed silver inserts.
What adds more to its sporty appeal is the front bumper’s radiator intake with silver appliqué. Though, the fog lamps remained unchanged.
Painted in the Bold Black shade, this modified TUV300 has ditched the rear spare wheel, and gets a Jeep badge.
Currently, the Mahindra TUV300 comes with two diesel engines – a 1.5-litre mHawk80 and 1.5-litre mHawk80 with 2-stage turbocharger – producing 84bhp and 100bhp respectively.
If you want to convert your Mahindra TUV300 as Jeep Cherokee, you will have to lose around Rs 1.5 lakh from your pocket.
