The Mahindra XUV300 compact SUV will be available with 2 engine options – a 110bhp, 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol and a 115bhp, 1.5-litre diesel.
The much-anticipated Mahindra XUV300 sub-4 meter SUV will finally go on sale in the country on February 14, 2019. Mahindra dealers have already started taking pre-orders for the compact SUV at a token amount of Rs 11,000. The SUV will be available in 4 trim levels W4, W6, W8 and W8(O) in petrol and diesel guise. The Mahindra XUV300 will directly rival the likes of the Ford EcoSport, Maruti Vitara Brezza, Honda WR-V and the Tata Nexon.
The Mahindra XUV300 will be powered by an all-new 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine. This petrol engine is capable of producing 110bhp of maximum power at 5,000rpm and a peak torque of 200Nm between 2000-3500rpm. On the other hand, the diesel version will get the 1.5-litre unit that currently powers the Marazzo MPV. However, this engine has been detuned to power the sub-4 meter SUV. While powering the XUV300, this engine produces 115bhp of power at 3,750rpm and 300Nm of torque at 1,500-2,500rpm. Power will be transmitted to the front wheels via a 6-speed manual gearbox.
