Mahindra & Mahindra has been on a launching spree of late, with the latest one being the NuvoSport. The company is now planning to launch a more powerful version of the TUV300 that will be powered by the 1.5-litre,3-cylinder, mHawk100 engine. This is the same engine that does duty in the Mahindra NuvoSport.

As against the current model's 1.5-litre mHawk80 engine that produces 84bhp and 230Nm, the more powerful version churns out 99bhp and 240Nm. Similar to the current model, the more powerful version will continue to be offered with two transmission options - a 5-speed manual and a 5-speed AMT (Automated Manual Transmission). With more powerful engine, we expect the new version to be slightly pricier than the current model. The existing model is priced between Rs 7.40 lakh - Rs 9.60 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

With the newer engine, the Mahindra TUV300 will return power equivalent to the Ford EcoSport. Though, the Mahindra TUV300 mHawk100 will be about 35bhp torquier than the EcoSport.
