The XUV 300 will get petrol and diesel engines. The petrol will be a new 1.5-litre engine that has been recently developed. This engine could be seen soon on the Marazzo. This is an all-new project, expected to power future vehicles of Mahindra. The power that it will develop will be around 100bhp and 145Nm of torque. These numbers are our estimation but during the name reveal of this car, it was said that the car will be the most powerful in it’s class so we will have to wait on the official numbers for that
The diesel engine of the XUV 300 will either be the existing 1.5-litre unit that does duty in the TUV300 or there will be an all-new 2.0-litre engine that will develop around 138bhp of power and 320Nm of torque. This will make the XUV300 a very power infused [ackage to consider. As shown in the spy shots the car will get a 6-speed manual gearbox and a 6-speed automatic unit from Aisin, Japan, which also does duty on the XUV500. The Mahindra XUV300 will a front will drive SUV. And as we have seen with the Marazzo, the car could come with AWD.
