It is expected to be offered in P4 and P10 trims and two seating layouts – 7 and 9 seats. There will also be an ambulance version with 4 seats and a patient bed. It will measure around 4,400mm in length, 1,795mm in width and 1,812mm in height with a wheelbase of 2,680mm.
Mahindra will launch the new XUV300 facelift before the end of this year. It will come with design changes and upgraded cabin along with engine mechanism. It will come with a more powerful turbo petrol engine. The SUV will be powered by a new 1.2-litre turbo petrol T-GDI mStallion turbo motor that produces 130bhp and 230Nm of torque.
