What are the new bits in the 2019 Mahindra TUV300?
The headlight element is new and now features LED DRLs. The grille too gets a piano black finish. Apart from this, the chin plate is new and so are the claddings on the side. Two new exterior paint schemes too have been introduced and these are Mystic Copper and Highway Red. At the rear, a clear lens has been used for the lights. You will also notice the new X-shaped spare wheel cover.
Inside, there are silver accents along with the beige upholstery. Apart from this, the top trims also get a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system. Speaking of top trims, there is also the micro-hybrid tech and static bending lamps. A new T10 (O) trim has also been introduced that gives customers leatherette seats as well as lumbar support. The trim list includes T4+, T6+ (Rs 8.98 lakh), T8 (Rs 9.7 lakh) and T10 (Rs 9.90 lakh) too. There are few additional trims based on the T10. These are the T10 dual tone for Rs 10.13 lakh, Rs 10.17 lakh for T10 (O) and Rs 10.40 lakh for T10 (O) dual tone. Mahindra also has a huge customisation list for the 2019 TUV 300.
In terms of safety features, dual airbags, ISOFIX child seat mounting points, rear parking sensors, ABS with EBD, front seatbelt warning, Corner Braking Control, auto locking doors and speed warning are standard across the range. The T10 also has a reverse parking camera now.
Any changes to the engine?
The older 84PS 1.5-litre diesel engine has been discontinued now. Only the 100PS/240Nm, 1.5-litre diesel is available. The 2019 Mahindra TUV300 also gets a 5-speed manual transmission as standard. Mahindra used to have a Ricardo-sourced AMT earlier but now it looks like it has been done with.
The new 2019 Mahindra TUV300 was the first non-legacy product by the maker in the sub-4m category. It features a butch yet boxy styling. It competes with the Maruti Vitara Brezza, Ford EcoSport as well as the Tata Nexon.
