Mahindra has upgraded the XUV300 compact SUV to meet the BS6 standards. The compact SUV from the home automaker is a really safe car as it got a 5-star NCAP rating for the adult occupants and a 4-star NCAP rating for all the child occupants. So along with the emission compliance, the XUV300 is a really safe car to go for!
For now, the Mahindra XUV300 BS6 comes at a price same as its BS4 counterpart. Prices start at Rs 8.69 lakh and go up to Rs 12.69 lakh (ex-showroom, India). The major change that we have seen in the XUV300 is the deletion of the W8 trim with the automatic gearbox. The compact SUV is now available only in W6 and W8(O) trims.
All of us know that the BS6 engines have experienced a drop in power. Be it Mahindra XUV300 BS6 or any other car, the new engines deliver less power as compared to their BS4 counterparts. Here the power has reduced to 115hp from the 117hp that the BS4 engine used to deliver. However, the torque remains constant at 300Nm. The equipment list has not received any update as of now but we can expect all the accessories to make their way into the BS6 counterpart of the compact SUV.
Mahindra upgraded the XUV300 to BS6 in December 2019 but the update was limited to the petrol variants only. With the update coming in for the diesel variants, Mahindra XUV300 is now fully upgraded according to the new emission norms. Both the manual and automatic gearbox options are still available except for the W8 automatic variant as we stated earlier.
Mahindra showcased a powerful version of the XUV300 at the Auto Expo 2020. The XUV300 Sport featured the gasoline direct injection-equipped 1.2-litre turbo-petrol engine from the carmaker’s mStallion family of engines. We hope they launch it here someday soon!0
