The Mahindra TUV300 Plus has been spotted absolutely undisguised and non-camouflaged on Indian roads. Mahindra & Mahindra has been working on the extended version of the popular TUV300 compact SUV for quite some time now and the car may be launched sometime soon in the Indian market. The Mahindra TUV300 Plus shares its platform with its smaller sibling, the sub-4m TUV300 SUV but gets a bigger cabin. This will be the new multi-seater vehicle from Mahindra & Mahindra along with the Xylo.
The P4 variant (base model) of the TUV300 Plus has reportedly been spotted on roads and the design is majorly similar as the TUV300 regular model. However, the design now looks a little more balanced as compared to the smaller sibling. The front fascia is almost identical to the regular model courtesy its seven slat grille and the squared headlamps. There are some design changes at the rear. The design of the tail lights has been changed and they now extend till the sides. The rear profile looks quite chunky, particularly beyond the D-pillar. The Mahindra TUV300 Plus has the same cabin as the regular TUV300.

The same four-spoke steering wheel is used along with a dual-tone beige and black theme inside. There is ample headroom and legroom inside and the big rear-quarter glass is expected to make the third seating row feel quite roomy as well. The base trim comes with front power windows and a manual air conditioning unit while the audio system is not present. However, the audio system will be offered in top trims and a touch screen infotainment unit may be given for the top-end model. The TUV300 Plus may be a 9 seater vehicle since the last row comes with two bench seats. The higher variants may, however, get front facing last-row seats.
The Mahindra TUV300 Plus is expected to get D120 badging for the sides and the same four-cylinder 1.5 litre diesel engine may be used from the regular TUV300. The 2.2 litre diesel engine used in the XUV500 and Scorpio may also make its way to the TUV300 Plus as per some reports. There are limited details available currently on the Mahindra TUV300 Plus but the car should be launched within the next few months according to reports. Mahindra & Mahindra will also be launching the facelifted Scorpio soon in the Indian market while there is the new U321 (codename) MPV which is being built as a rival for the Toyota Innova Crysta.
