The UV major and home-grown auto giant, Mahindra and Mahindra had earlier announced that it has provided around 100 units of its subcompact SUV, TUV300 to the Maharashtra Police and the spy shot shown below confirms the same. The Mahindra TUV300 provided to the Maharashtra Police is based on the T4+ variant that uses a 1.5-litre turbocharged diesel unit that puts out relatively less power. That said, the oil burner makes maximum power of 84bhp along with peak torque of 230Nm of torque. The torque is available at low rpm, between 1500 to 2250rpm which implies the power is available quickly.
First introduced in 2015, the TUV300 is essentially a sub-four meter SUV that competes with top-selling models in the segment including Maruti Vitara Brezza, Ford EcoSport and Tata Nexon. The model has received several changes over the short span of time and is currently available with the 100bhp, 1.5-litre oil burner.
It comes with both manual and AMT gearbox options, though the one that has been provided to the Maharashtra Police misses out on the AMT unit and instead gets the conventional five-speed manual transmission. On the feature front, the subcompact SUV packs a bunch of tech such as power steering, Eco mode, dual airbags, anti-lock-braking system with electronic brakeforce distribution; ISOFIX mounts for the second row and tilt adjustable steering among several others.
