ith one of the most sold SUVs in its portfolio, Mahindra is in a sweet spot offering vehicles like Scorpio and XUV500. These full-sized vehicles chip-in a huge amount of monthly sales and it is riding high on popularity too. Known for these humongous SUVs, the UV maker has not been very lucky when it comes to compact size UVs. Falling prey to dud sales, Quanto could not spill the magic it was expected to, the sub-four meter SUV remains to be a sluggish seller. Therefore, to put forth a potential rival in this segment, Mahindra has come up with new TUV300 which stands for 'Tough Utility Vehicle' and 300 reads three double 'O'.
Built from scratch, TUV300 is a new model and not a successor to Bolero and Quanto as speculated. On the outside, the SUV feels a little boxy but that is a deliberate move, moreover interiors are styled endearingly, space on offer is good specially in the front row. Engine has been taken from Quanto but it yields lesser power. On the performance front, the SUV is better than other Mahindras which brings it in the forefront among other vehicles in the Mahindra clan.
Measuring under four meters, 3995mm to be precise the SUV collides head on with the Ford EcoSport which has a length of 3999mm. Other rivals in the segment like Renault Duster measures 4315mm long, Hyundai Creta measures 4270mm and Maruti Suzuki S-Cross measure 4300mm. Of all, Duster is the longest, while in terms of width and wheelbase Duster leads again with a width of 1822mm and 2673mm of wheelbase.Text
