Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd, announced that bookings for the XUV300, its upcoming new Compact SUV model, would begin at Mahindra dealerships across India from today. The eagerly awaited XUV300 will be launched in February 2019.

Veejay Ram Nakra, Chief of Sales & Marketing, M&M Ltd. said “The XUV300 is a very exciting & comprehensive package that will compete with SUVs in the Rs.8-12 Lakh (ex-showroom) price range. The XUV300 promises not just the most fun-to-drive performance in the segment, but also first-in-class hi-tech features & best-in-class safety. Its 7 airbags are the highest number offered on any 5-seater, not just in the Compact SUV segment, but also in the mid-size sedan segment. Segment-first features such as Dual-zone Fully Automatic Climate Control and Front Parking Sensors are thoughtful new features keeping consumer expectations in mind. We are certain that the XUV300 will help us redefine the growing Compact SUV segment in India.”

The XUV300 which is based on the Ssangyong Tivoli, will offer an exciting design, ‘fun-to-drive’ performance, coupled with some first-in-class hi-tech features and best-in-class safety and refreshing interiors. It will offer segment-first features like Dual-zone Fully Automatic Climate Control & Front Parking Sensors, The XUV300 will also come with a factory fitted Sunroof, probably in the highest trim.

The XUV300‘s headlamps integrate with the fog lamps and it also gets dual LED DRLs with LED tail lamps. The XUV300 will come with both Petrol and Diesel engine options and will deliver a fun-to-drive performance. The new model will offer segment-leading torque of 300 Nm for the 1.5L Diesel engine & 200 Nm for the 1.2L Petrol engine. A 6-speed manual transmission will be mated to the engines and the availability of an Automatic Transmission is not known as of now,

The XUV300 will be the first compact SUV to offer 7 airbags, including a knee airbag for the driver, ensuring complete safety for all the occupants. The XUV300 will also offer disc brakes on all 4 wheels as standard on all variants.

The XUV300 will be available in 3 variants – W4, W6 & W8.
