Followed by the launch of the Mahindra NuvoSport last month, Mahindra has launched a more powerful version of the TUV300 with the all new mHAWK100 engine, starting at Rs 8.87 lakh (ex-showroom Mumbai for the T8 variant). The new engine will be available in the top end variants of T8 & T8 AMT in the TUV300 and the T8 variant of the TUV300 will be available with both mHAWK100 & mHAWK80 engine options. The new variant will be available across the country with immediate effect.
Speaking on the launch of the TUV300 with the all new mHAWK100 engine, Pravin Shah, President & Chief Executive (Automotive), M&M Ltd. said, “At Mahindra it has always been our endeavour to incorporate consumer insights and feedback and hence we are happy to introduce the more powerful TUV300 with the mHawk100 engine. Further the TUV300 AMT T8 variant will offer a more thrilling drive with the upgraded power. With over 25,000 TUV300s on Indian roads, it has emerged as a strong player in its segment. With its all new powerful engine as well as a winning combination of bold true-blue SUV design, premium & elegant interiors, superior driving pleasure and best in class safety, the TUV300 will become an even more compelling value proposition for our customers.”
Though, the mhawk100 is the same engine as seen in the Mahindra NuvoSport. Where the mHAWK80 delivers a power of 80bhp, the new mHawk100 unit will deliver 100bhp. And along with more power, there is an increase in torque from 230Nm to 240Nm in the all new engine of the TUV300. Being the country’s first SUV to offer autoSHIFT Automated Manual Transmission Technology, the TUV300 has also been upgraded with more power and has been refined for smoother automatic gear shifts and a fatigue-free driving experience.
