The Mahindra XUV300 becomes the first sub-compact SUV to get a BS6-compliant powertrain option. Mahindra has updated the 1.2-litre turbo petrol to meet the upcoming BS6 emission norms. It is also the first SUV from the Indian carmaker’s stable to get a BS6-compliant power plant. Similar to the current version, the  XUV300 is available in five variants: W4, W6, W8 and W8 Optional, and W8 (Optional Pack Dual Tone) and carries a premium of Rs 20,000 over the current non-BS6 variants.

Variant XUV300 Petrol BS6-complaint XUV300 Petrol Difference
W4 Rs 8.10 lakh Rs 8.30 lakh
Rs 20,000
W6 Rs 8.95 lakh Rs 9.15 lakh
W8 Rs 10.40 lakh Rs 10.60 lakh
W8 (Optional Pack) RS 11.64 lakh Rs 11.84 lakh
W8 (Optional Pack Dual Tone) Rs 11.79 lakh Rs 11.99 lakh

The 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine produces 110PS and 200Nm of torque and comes mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox. The XUV300 also gets a 1.5-litre diesel engine, which is yet to be updated. The Indian carmaker is making the switch to BS6 in a phased manner and we expect the diesel XUV300 and other SUVs to get the update soon. 

Meanwhile, Mahindra is also cooking up a more powerful version of the XUV300 that will use 1.2-litre Turbo GDI unit expected to produce 130PS and 230Nm of torque. Its key rivals include the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Ford Ecosport, Hyundai Venue, and the Tata Nexon.
