Existing Mahindra XUV300 is offered in four trims- W4, W6, W8, and W8(O) with prices starting at Rs 7.96 lakh and going up to Rs 13.36 lakh (ex-sh)
Sub 4 meter SUV segment continues to grow in India. Thanks to the arrival of new SUVs, this segment enjoys a good pie of the total passenger vehicle market share. The best-sellers in this segment currently are Maruti Brezza and Tata Nexon – which are averaging about 10k sales per month.
Then there’s the Kia Sonet and Hyundai Venue, which together generate roughly 12-15k per month. Despite an attractive package, the Mahindra XUV300 has fallen to third place in its market. The XUV300 sells around 4-5 thousand units each month on average.
2022 Mahindra XUV300 Facelift
Mahindra is likely to give the XUV300 a facelift shortly, as rivals offer fresh upgrades and amenities. Mahindra will be able to compete more effectively in the category as a result of this. Shubhajit Dixit, a computer rendering artist, has presented his vision of the 2022 Mahindra XUV300 Facelift ahead of its official appearance.
There won’t be many changes because it’s only a facelift. With a few minor changes, the 2022 XUV300 might keep its distinctive look. The front design is based on the new Mahindra XUV700, and it has the twin peaks emblem that will appear on all future Mahindra SUVs. This new design for the XUV300 is both attractive and athletic.
A revised front grille and new bumpers can be spotted on the 2022 Mahindra XUV300 Facelift render. Revised 17-inch alloy wheels, new headlight and taillamp clusters, and new exterior colour options are all available on the upgraded XUV300. It might be Pratap Bose’s first significant project after joining Mahindra from Tata Motors.
The inside of the facelifted XUV300 is all-black, with a dark dashboard and seat upholstery. It could receive a huge central infotainment screen with piano black borders all the way around the centre console. While the present XUV300 is well-equipped with creature amenities, it lacks rear AC vents, and the forthcoming facelifted model is expected to remain the same.
2022 Mahindra XUV300 Specs – Expected
A new and more powerful engine is slated to be the most important improvement for the XUV300 facelift. The more powerful 1.2-litre 3-cylinder mStallion turbocharged petrol engine will almost certainly make its debut in the new XUV300. This engine produces 130 horsepower and 230 pound-feet of peak torque. It might come standard with a 6-speed manual transmission. Mahindra homologated this engine for all of the XUV300’s basic models earlier this month.
Mahindra now provides a 1.2-litre turbo petrol engine and a 1.5-litre CRDi diesel engine in the current model. The former produces 109 horsepower and 200 pound-feet of peak torque, while the latter produces 115 horsepower and 300 pound-feet of peak torque. Both engine choices come with a 6-speed manual or an AMT transmission. The makeover for the XUV300 is unlikely to arrive before the middle of 2022.
