Earlier, Mahindra confirmed that it has started working on the new TUV300 facelift, and now the car has been for the first time doing some testing rounds in Chennai. The 2019 Mahindra TUV300 facelift was wrapped under heavy camouflage and we can expect to get some interesting tweaks on the outside as well as inside. That apart, the car is also expected to some changes to its mechanics.
The 2019 Mahindra TUV300 facelift can be seen wrapped in the heavy camouflage, but still one can make out the changes made to the new version, compared to its predecessor, which is at the rear that gets a new X-shaped spare wheel cover mounted on the tailgate and a newly designed set of alloy wheels. While on the inside, we can expect it to come with a new touchscreen infotainment screen. The refreshed TUV300 is expected to get LED daytime running lights and to comply with country’s new crash test norms, the facelifted version will get some changes to its body structure.
Mechanically, expect the new Mahindra TUV300 facelift to come packed with the same 1.5-litre mHawk100 diesel engine. The oil burner develops 100bhp of maximum power with 240Nm of top torque. The engine comes paired with a 5-speed manual and an option of an AMT gearbox would also be on offer. We can expect this 2019 TUV300 facelift’s engine to be compliant to BS-IV emission norms, as Mahindra earlier announced that it is investing to come up with the BS-VI ready engines.
