Mahindra & Mahindra will launch the elongated version of the TUV300 subcompact SUV – Mahindra TUV300 Plus – in June, 2018, claims a report. Sitting on a longer wheelbase, the new model will receive minor styling upgrades including the stretched body behind the C-pillar and newly-designed taillamps. The SUV’s longer version will come with multiple seating configurations.
Unlike its standard TUV300 that uses a 100bhp, 1.5-litre mHwk diesel engine, the Mahindra TUV300 Plus will come with a 2.2-litre mHawk, four-cylinder diesel motor that’s good for 120bhp. Feeding power to the wheels will be a 6-speed manual gearbox. Read – Mahindra XUV500 Facelift Is Ready For Launch
