Mahindra & Mahindra (M&M) Ltd on Wednesday announced the launch of the TUV300 Plus with a starting price tag of Rs 9.47 lakh (ex-showroom, Mumbai). It is an elongated, nine-seater version of the compact SUV – the TUV300.
Available in three variants — P4, P6 and P8, — the new model will fill the gap for a contemporary, powerful and flexible full-size SUV under the 10-lakh price point in the Indian auto Industry, Mahindra said in a statement.
The TUV300 Plus is powered by the bigger and more powerful 2.2-litre, 120PS mHAWKD120 diesel engine that propels the Scorpio as well. The powertrain comes mated to a six-speed manual transmission and also features Mahindra’s Micro-Hybrid technology.
The company has continued the same bold design with the imposing grille of the TUV300 with its Plus version. However, the newly-launched one has a bigger footprint with length at 4,400mm (405mm more than standard TUV300) and larger 16-inch alloy wheels.
