The Facelifted Mahindra TUV300 Could Have A Different Name

The updates are set to be pretty extensive from a cosmetic standpoint


  • Cosmetic upgrades include a new chrome grille, restyled headlamps with LED DRLs, new fog lamps, revised bumpers, and slightly tweaked tail lights.

  • Expected to retain most of its feature list with some minor additions.

  • Likely to retain its 1.5-litre diesel engine, albeit a BS6 upgrade.

  • Expect a launch later this year at a premium over its predecessor. 

  • The TUV300 Plus (Bolero Neo Plus) facelift could come at a later stage.

Mahindra has been working on introducing the BS6-compliant TUV300 facelift for quite some time now, with test mules being spied on several occasions in the country. While the previous set of images were camouflaged prototypes, the latest spy shots reveal the updated TUV300 undisguised for the first time. What’s more, the TUV300 could be renamed to Bolero Neo.


The leaked image shows the TUV300 facelift shod in Mahindra’s Rocky Beige body shade, same as the new Thar, with various design updates. Up front, it gets a refreshed front fascia which includes a new chrome grille, a tweaked front bumper with larger air dams, restyled headlamps with LED DRLs, and new fog lamps. At the rear, aside from slightly updated tail lights (doesn’t feature a clear lense anymore), the TUV300 will retain most of its rear design and side profile. 

Cabin shots are yet to surface but we expect some minor updates to its features list. Familiar features may include a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with the addition of Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, steering-mounted controls, keyless entry, in-built GPS navigation, and steering-mounted controls. Expect safety features like ABS with EBD, rear parking camera, and ISOFIX child seat mounts to be retained. 

Under the hood, the TUV300 facelift could continue with the 1.5-litre mHawk diesel engine, albeit with a BS6 upgrade. It’s expected to produce the same 100PS and 240Nm figures as the BS4 model. Transmission options may be limited to a 5-speed manual only, as the AMT automatic option was axed in the 2019 facelifted model. 

Expect the Mahindra TUV300 facelift to be launched soon at a premium over its predecessor’s Rs 8.54 lakh to Rs 10.55 lakh (ex-showroom) price range owing to the BS6 upgrade and other additions. The carmaker could also introduce the TUV300 Plus MPV facelift at a later stage, with additional features and updates. Also, it may be renamed to the Bolero Neo Plus. Due to its body-on frame chassis, the TUV300 has no direct rivals, but in terms of pricing, it will take on the Mahindra XUV300, Kia Sonet, Hyundai Venue, Tata Nexon, Nissan Magnite, and the upcoming Renault Kiger.
