Mahindra TUV300 Rivals

The Mahindra TUV300 competes against the Maruti Vitara Brezza, Hyundai Creta, Ford EcoSport and other compact SUVs.

Mahindra TUV300 has received an overwhelming response ever since its launch in September. The TUV300 that became India’s second best-selling compact SUV within a month of its launch, has received over 16,000 bookings so far. Though, it’s the AMT variant across the model lineup which is greater in demand than the variants powered by manual transmission. The compact SUV was also one of the top products that helped the company achieve 38 per cent year-on-year growth in November 2015.

In order to meet vehicle’ rising demand and reduce waiting period, the company has increased its production to 6,000 units from 4,000 units per month. Just so you know, the Mahindra’s TUV300 had outsold the Ford EcoSport for two consecutive months with a total sale of 4,551 units in October and 4,313 units in September 2015.

So if you are planning to buy the all-new Mahindra TUV300, here’s everything you should know about it

Mahindra TUV300 Exterior

The Mahindra TUV300 looks pretty alright in flash, and attracting buyers due to its rugged feel. The Mahindra’s compact SUV’s design is claimed to be inspired by a “battle tank” with features like raised shoulders, high front nose, flat roof, straight bonnet and high ground clearance. The vehicle offers a commanding road presence, thanks to its high ground clearance. Based on the new ladder frame chassis, the TUV300 is claimed to more compact and lighter than the Bolero. It’s the same platform that underpins the new Scorpio. The car’s front fascia looks aggressive with a bold grille with chrome inserts, static bending headlamps, black bumper, flat bonnet and rectangular fog lamps.

Though the side profile looks plain and boxy, in fact the vehicle’s tyres too look undersized due to square-shaped wheel arches. That said, the prominent character line, roof rails and blackened C-Pillar help the vehicle’s side profile look sporty. The rear profile too looks simple but has a neat design that gives it a no-nonsense appeal. With bold stances and rear-mounted spare wheel, it looks like a proper SUV despite being it the sub-4 metre vehicle. Other design elements include body-coloured door handles and wind mirrors, outside rear-view mirrors (ORVMs) and vertical tail-lamps.

Mahindra TUV300 Interior

Inside the cabin, the car gets a dual-tone black and beige interior theme and a hexapod centre console with piano black finish. The compact SUV comes with 7-seats (5 +2) layout and two single jumper seats behind the second row. The instrument panel gets chrome bezel surrounding with a multi information display (MID) in the middle, a speedometer on right and a tachometer on the left. There is two large dials with chrome highlights that add more to its sporty appeal.

The car also comes equipped with a three-spoke steering wheel with audio system controls, Bluetooth telephony and contoured palm grips. The power window switches and parking brake lever are positioned towards the rear end of the center console. The vehicle offers best-in-class headroom and legroom, and a class-leading boot space of 384-litres. The cargo capacity can be increased up to 720-litres. Mahindra claims that TUV300 is ready ahead of time to meet the upcoming safety regulation – October, 2017.

Mahindra TUV300 Engine & Transmission

Power for the Mahindra TUV 300 comes from a mHawk architecture based engine – called mHawk80 – that makes it more powerful and efficient than the Bolero. This 1.5-litre mHawk80 turbocharged diesel engine is equipped with the Micro hybrid technology that we have already seen on various Mahindra products including the Scorpio. This power mill is capable of developing a maximum power output of 84bhp against 230Nm of peak torque.

The company has also rolled out a more powerful version of the compact SUV – Mahindra TUV300 mHawk100. This new variant derives its power from the NuvoSport’s 1.5-litre mHawk80 diesel engine that delivers power worth 100bhp at 3750rpm and 240Nm of torque at 1600rpm – 2800rpm. There are two transmissions on offer – a 5-speed manual, and a 5-speed AMT (automated manual transmission) gearbox.

The compact SUV also gets the start-stop option that helps the engine save fuel and reduce emissions. This hybrid technology automatically switches off the engine when the vehicle comes to a halt, and gains life again once the clutch gets operational. The new Eco Mode system balances engine power for driving and AC usage. It also helps in achieving optimum fuel economy. Mahindra claims that TUV300 returns a fuel efficiency of 18.49kmpl. This makes it one the most fuel efficient cars in its league.

        Mahindra tuv 3oo mileage is not more than 11km/lit it is a big fraud . they are advertising 18.9 which is only under test conditions . they are misleading the customers

    The AMT version is grossly overpriced at a 72k premium over the manual, for a lakh of rupees premium over manual tranny’s most manufacturers offer a real automatic transmission. The Monotone LCD screen at 3 and 4 inches -with out Navigation or rear camera is a real downer when even the Renault Kwid (a 3 to 4.5 lakh car) offers a much larger FULL COLOR screen with NAVIGATION included…The T8 AMT model costs almost #12 lakhs onroad Mahindra should have provided the option of the DSI Intl torque convertor that is in the Scorpio and included a larger screen/backup camera and Navigation at the 12 lakh price OTR for the T8AMT… Buying a 3 cylinder vehicle at #12 lakhs with only 80Bhp power, low fuel efficiency,an overpriced AMT kit and small single color screen sans the reverse camera and navigation will not make sense to many discerning urban buyers.

    My advice to mahindra company only that power window switch location not really good. It could have all in one in right handed side.
    I wanted to buy Scorpio s6+ or s8 but now decided to buy tuv300 which gives all features with minimum price.

      Hi Chandresh,

      The vehicle’s design has been claimed to have taken its inspiration from a battle tank with feature such as high front nose, flat roof, straight bonnet, high ground clearance and raised shoulders.

      PS: Sorry for reverting so late.

    Can anyone help me know the actual Fuel efficiency of TUV 300 Manual Transmission. Please it will be of great help.


    • IndiaCarNews

      October 20, 2015 at 8:10 PMOct

      Hi Manish,

      We don’t think you can get an aftermarket ABS installed in a non-ABS vehicle in India. And even if someone claims to do it, we won’t recommend you to not go for this as it would require replacement of mostly all the electrical parts of the car. The safer bet is to instead buy an ABS-equipped model.

    TUV is good vehicle with all features but mahindra has spoiled this vehicle with the 3 cylinder engine doing poor milage. The engine sounds like their maximo mini truck and with a dizzling sound. Milage is 11 to 12 kms only.
