Just when news on TUV3OO is out, now comes the news of a NEW SUV from Mahindra, replacement to Bolero?.
M&M has made the TUV300 on a new platform and it will be retaining this platform to make many more vehicles, the next being the TUV500. The TUV500 will be a full-size SUV (UV2 segment) and it will priced around the Scorpio.
The TUV300 comes with a 1.5-litre diesel engine and will be launched in orange colour. The TUV500 will follow the same family design and it will be targeting rural car buyers looking to buy a modern SUV. This will replace the Bolero in 2017, once the new crash norms are in place. The TUV500 will get the same 1.5-litre diesel engine, but it will be producing about 100bhp of power and will come with a five-speed manual transmission and AMT (automated manual transmission). The TUV500 will be a proper seven-seater with more room for the three row passengers and Mahindra will be looking at exporting it as well.
