Mahindra XUV300 to soon get a new variant in India
Mahindra XUV300 is likely to receive a new variant soon. The company is planning to introduce the XUV300 in the new ‘Sportz' trim which is likely to go on sale in the country in the next few weeks. The same model was also showcased at Auto Expo 2020 and has now been leaked in a document surfacing online, hinting at its immediate launch.
As per the leaked document, the power output from the XUV300 Sportz edition will stand at 128bhp and the car will be available for purchase in a total of four variants namely W4, W6, W8, and W8(O). It will most likely draw power from a 1.2-litre turbo-petrol mill which was also displayed at the previous event. The engine will come mated to a six-speed manual gearbox.

If the upcoming version is based on the XUV300 Sportz displayed earlier it could get several exterior highlights including body decals and ‘Sportz’ badging all around. Inside the cabin, it could sport a fully blacked-out theme along with red inserts on the dashboard, centre console, as well as steering wheel.
Mahindra XUV300 Sportz will see competition from sportier trims of the sub-compact SUVs already present in India such as Hyundai Venue 1.0 Turbo and Kia Sonet 1.0 Turbo. Currently, the car features two powertrain options such as 1.2-litre petrol and 1.5-litre diesel engines, while the transmission includes manual as well as automatic gearbox options.
Meanwhile, Mahindra is gearing up for the official debut of the new-gen Scorpio in India soon. The car will be officially displayed in India later this month.
