What happens when Mahindra comes up with a tough, ladder-frame SUV – a Tough Utility Vehicle or TUV is born. 2015 Mahindra TUV300 is not derived from an MPV, nor is it a monocoque crossover. Being manufactured from the grounds up, the TUV300 was modelled on the lines of a battle tank. The TUV300 compact SUV is being offered in several variants—T4, T4+, T6, T6+, T6+AMT, T8 and T8 AMT.


The sub 4-metre SUV is 3995 mm in length, 1839 mm in height and 1835 mm in width. It is capable of loading 7 passengers. The ground clearance is 190 mm while it has a 2680 mm of wheelbase. The boot space of the TUV is 384 litres but it can expand to 720 litres by folding the middle and last rows.


Powering the Mahindra TUV300 is a 1493cc mHawk diesel engine (called the mHawk80) that is a 3-cylinder engine but delivers 85 PS and a 230Nm of max torque available from 1500-2250 rpm. The TUV300 does a 0-100 in 17.4 seconds. The fuel efficiency is 14.65 kmpl. The automated manual transmission (AMT) has been co-developed with Ricardo.


The front has a multi slat grille and a set of simple yet well designed headlamps units that go well with the overall design. The rectangular fog lamps gel really well. The tailgate mounted spare wheel and vertically stacked tail lamps and the rear bumper are well styled. The D pillar is blacked out and the C-pillar is in the same body color and breaks the large glasshouse lines really well.


Inside, one gets the connectivity and gadgets and the cabin is reasonably airy with great headroom and generous legroom. Air conditioning is powerful and the cabin cools quickly. The dual tone black and beige interiors look good with a dash of chrome and metal finish around it. The hexagon shaped centre bezel and the dash layout and pattern is very good looking. The infotainment system comprises 2-DIN audio, Bluetooth, USB, and AUX. It has a neat and stylish steering wheel with audio and phone controls mounted on it. It also has a sporty twin-pod instrument cluster. There are lot of storage spaces provided inside, especially on every inside door panel to keep bottles and other knick knacks.


The TUV300 is made of toughened high strength steel body shell for all around impact protection, 3rd generation crash-worthy chassis, to endure low and high speed crashes, front crash sensors and automatic door locking to prevent doors from openly accidently.

Mahindra TUV 300 is available in - Bold Black, Molten Orange, Majestic Silver, Dynamo Red, Erve Blue, and Glacier White.


Mahindra TUV300 prices start at Rs. 6.98 lacs (ex-showroom, New Delhi).
