Update 26th Aug: In the build up to its launch on 10t, Mahindra has dropped yet another teaser shot of its upcoming compact SUV – TUV300 which reveals the following details…
- The steering has inspiration from other new Mahindra models. It gets silver garnish at the bottom apart from bluetooth telephony and audio controls.
- The twin-pod instrument cluster also has resemblance with XUV’s. It has almost all the warning lights between both the dials.
- Going by the pic, the engine redlines at 4800 rpm which is much lesser than Quanto’s marked 7000 rpm!
- We can also notice the Electric mirror adjuster under the AC vent which has a silver outline.

14th Aug: In a brand new update, Mahindra, which is heavily promoting their upcoming TUV300, has shared its official launch date. TUV300 will go on sale in India on 10th of September and in the same mail, they have shared a teaser pic of the upcoming compact SUV.
TUV will be produced at Mahindra’s Chakan plant and is based on an all-new platform. As confirmed earlier, it carries an mHAWK80 engine, where 80 most probably signifies its power output from the reworked 1.5 liter motor of the Quanto. The sub 4 meter compact SUV comes shod with 17 inch 235/65 rubber most probably for the top model. Lesser variants may get smaller tyres.
The alloy wheels look decent and the tyres on this pic are the Ceat Czar highway terrain. The front appears aggressive and the overall stance is impressive and flatter. Interestingly, there doesn’t appear to be a lot of cladding, in fact none, which is against what Mahindra is known for.
From one earlier spotting, it is known that TUV will be a 5+2 seater like Quanto and let us hope the two jump seats at the rear are more meaningful this time. So folks, 10th September is the date again, when Mahindra will try to make a comeback with a new product. After this they have the S101 micro SUV scheduled for launch which, we believe, will also happen this year.
