New Mahindra TUV300 Plus 9 seater MPV spied on test
Mahindra is actively testing its new TUV300 Plus variant ahead of official launch. New TUV300 Plus, which is based on a ladder frame construction as seen on the Scorpio, sports squared off wheel arches, wraparound tail lights and a tailgate mounted spare wheel. The headlamp cluster is also refreshed with rounded conventional lights while the front grille sports a honeycomb design with black coloured accents.
Interiors are also set to receive a few updates while in terms of its overall design it remains largely untouched. It will continue to sport faux leather upholstery in its top spec variants and a 7” touchscreen infotainment system, 4 speakers, tweeters and GPS navigation while second row seats will be folding so as to increase boot space if needed.
