Mahindra TUV 300 Plus Expert Review

0 Shares

Introduction

.

Pros
  • While the TUV300 Plus P6 variant is focused towards fleet buyers, the top-spec P8 variant offers some modern features that private buyers would want
  • The TUV300 Plus P6 variant, which comes with ABS and airbags as standard, is priced under Rs 10 lakh, which makes it a relatively affordable MPV considering that it’s based on a ladder-frame chassis and is powered by a 2.2-litre diesel engine
  • The Mahindra TUV300 Plus is an MPV with nine seats. So, fleet owners or those with large families can consider it over other MPVs that only offer seating for seven
  • A lot of buyers might like the TUV300 Plus’ high seating position
Cons
  • Absence of captain seats for the second row might put off private or chauffeur-driven buyers
  • The TUV300 Plus is only available with a 9-seat layout, there’s no option for a 7- or 8-seat configuration even in the top variant
  • The TUV300 Plus misses out on basic safety features like ABS and dual front airbags

CarDekho Verdict

The TUV300 Plus is basically a stretched out version of the Mahindra TUV300, which is a sub-4m SUV. Stretching the TUV300 towards the rear has allowed Mahindra to make enough space to seat four more passengers on two benches that face sideways behind the second row.

"The 9-seat layout gives the TUV300 Plus an advantage over other relatively smaller 7-seat MPVs like the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga and the Renault Lodgy. "

Based on an old-school ladder frame, the MPV is powered by a 2.2-litre diesel engine with mild-hybrid tech that makes a maximum power of over 120PS. With the option to seat more people and two variants priced under Rs 10 lakh, the TUV300 Plus should make for the ideal MPV for fleet owners. A big downside, however, is that the base P4 variant skips basic safety features like dual front airbags and ABS.
