Mahindra TUV 300 to get powerful mHawk100 engine


Most customers of Mahindra TUV 300 reported that the compact sub meter 4 SUV felt a little under-powered, especially while driving on the highways. M&M Taking a note of it, now plans to borrow the more powerful mHawk100 engine from the recently launched NuvoSport, to power the TUV300.

Under the hood, the currently sold Mahindra TUV300 is powered by a 1.5-litre three-cylinder mHawk80 diesel engine, which puts out 84bhp power and 230Nm torque. In competition to rivals who offer cars with over 90bhp power outputs, the TUV300 does feel the lag. With a planned upgrade, the new TUV300 will be powered by the 1.5-litre mHawk100, which puts out 100bhp of power and 240Nm of peak torque. The upgraded TUV 300 will continue to be offered in manual and AMT options.

Except for a new badge, the upgraded TUV300 is not expected to get any feature or cosmetic upgrade for now. Given the presence of a more powerful engine in place, we can expect to witness a slight dip in fuel efficiency. The one on sale currently claims to return a fuel efficiency figure of 18.47 kmpl. On the pricing aspect, no hike is expected as of now and is expected to continue between Rs 7.37 – Rs 9.64 lakh
