October 12, 2016: Mahindra TUV300 is one of the two offerings by the Indian SUV maker in the sub-four metre SUV space. This SUV is priced at Rs 7.38 lakh for the base T4 variant and Rs 9.73 lakh for the top end, T8 AMT mHAWK100 variant (ex-showroom Delhi). The more powerful motor is exclusively available in the top-spec T8 variant. It uses the same 1.5-litre, 3-cylinder engine as the standard TUV300, but has been tuned to produce 101PS of power and 240Nm of torque. While the manual gearbox equipped T8 can be had with the mHAWK80 engine (85PS/230Nm) as well, the T8 AMT is offered only in the 101PS tune. Mahindra has also launched a Bronze Green' colour on the eve of Independence day. This colour is offered only on a made-to-order basis. Other than this, the TUV300 is also available in Bold Black, Molten Orange, Majestic Silver, Dynamo Red, Verve Blue and Glacier White. Of late, a new dual tone colour is also on offer. However, it is available only with the top end T8 101PS version at an additional cost of Rs 15,000.
Mahindra is identified as one of India’s favourite utility vehicle makers. The brand also took the first stab at the sub-4 metre SUV space by chopping the Xylo to create the Quanto. However, the Quanto couldn’t get the response Mahindra was hoping for, which took the Indian automaker back to the drawing board.
After spending years in development, Mahindra introduced the TUV3OO in order to reinforce its position as the country’s favourite SUV maker. We've got to say, the vehicle does make a pretty amazing impression and there’s a lot to discover, but first, let’s weigh the pros and cons.
At 384 litres, it has segment leading cargo volume.
Cabin space. Generous amount of legroom and headroom in the first two rows.
Dual airbags along with ABS and EBD available across trim levels.
The third row jump-seats arenÃ¢ÂÂt very comfortable. Best suited to small adults or children.
1.5-litre engine lacks refinement. Sounds crude, also runs out of breath at highway speeds.
NVH (Noise, Vibration and Harshness) levels arenÃ¢ÂÂt the best. Lot of vibrations can be felt through the pedals and gear lever.
Stand Out Features
MicroHybrid tech is a segment first. Helps improve efficiency.
BlueSense technology on the integrated music system. Essentially converts the phone into a BT remote for the system.
We'll put it this way - if you need a roomy compact SUV for 5 people and their luggage, the TUV300 is a great option. It has a few chinks in its armor with a slightly low-rent build quality and a mediocre engine compared to its arch rival - the Ford Ecosport. However, in offers the most space in the segment, has an imposing design that no rival can match and can take on bad roads so well, you wish it came with 4x4.
Anand Mahindra, at the launch of the TUV3OO said that he was in love with the car and wanted to be the first owner of the new Mahindra. He also said he loved people who were authentic and were true to their roots - and I respect that opinion. If there?s been one mainstream manufacturer who?s stuck to their roots - it has to be Mahindra & Mahindra. The auto-giant insists that it is a ?listening company?. A company that listens to feedback - not just from the customers, but also us auto-journos. That is an extremely re-assuring to know that there?s a manufacturer that actively develops product, not just looking at the bottom line but with a view to cater to a specific audience.

Dont buy this car. Absolutely poor pick up.
The vehicle is totally underpowered. only the looks are pleasing. I could get only 8kms per liter of diesel despite having run more than 2000 kms by now. the DTE meter shows false readings. if u ply 1 km, DTE shall show that you have done 3kms. Better buy a patrol car rather than this vehicle. Mahindra has not been able to listen to our voices. I h... Read Full Review

What an amazing performance by TUV 300 mHAWK100 !!! ??
What a performance by âBattle Tankâ !!!! Amazing !!! Worth for whatever I have paid for this SUV, a âMake in Indiaâ product I am proud of. After all I took three months to decide whether to go for Xylo or TUV for wanting more space to accommodate all family members!!!
