  • XUV300 W8, W8(O) and W6 diesel variants now available with an AMT.
  • The 6-speed AMT is sourced from Italian firm Magneti Marelli.
  • Petrol variants are limited to the 6-speed manual gearbox.
  • A more powerful BS6 compliant 1.2-litre GDI petrol mill is slated for a year-end launch.

If you’ve been eyeing a diesel sub-4 metre SUV with an automatic transmission but felt that the Mahindra XUV300 was beyond your reach, here’s some good news. Mahindra has just introduced a more affordable version of the XUV300 diesel-AMT based on the mid-spec W6 variant. Priced at Rs 9.99 lakh, it is Rs 49,000 dearer than the W6 diesel-manual variant. However, it’s almost a lakh and a half cheaper than the W8 diesel-AMT variant. Sourced from Magneti Marelli, the 6-speed AMT was earlier limited to the W8 and W8(O) diesel variants only. Here’s a look at the XUV300 diesel’s variant-wise prices

Powering the W6 AMT variant is a 1.5-litre diesel engine that produces 116PS of power and 300Nm of torque. The diesel engine can also be offered in a 6-speed manual aside from the 6-speed AMT. However, the 1.2-litre MPFi turbo-petrol engine isn’t available with the two-pedal setup. The turbo petrol engine churns out 110PS and 200Nm of torque and can be had with a 6-speed MT only.

Like its manual counterpart, the XUV300’s W6 variant comes loaded with features like a 7-inch touchscreen unit with USB, AUX-In, FM and inbuilt navigation system, electric ORVMs, electric tailgate release, multimode steering wheel, height-adjustable front seatbelts, and more. It also gets a host of safety kit that includes dual front occupant airbags, ABS with EBD, ISOFIX child-seat mounts, four disc brakes, speed-sensing door locks and impact-sensing auto unlock. However, it gets additional safety with ESP with hill hold functionality from the higher end W8 variants.

Mahindra isn’t going to stop there with the XUV300 as it is working on upgrading its engines to BS6 standards with a more powerful 1.2-litre Turbo GDI petrol engine in the SUV later this year. The Mahindra XUV300 AMT rivals other AMT-diesel SUVs like the Vitara Brezza and Tata Nexon.

  • Pimmi | 1 month ago It's quite laughable only 1.2 L engine and call it a mighty SUV ... I think the thing that matters under the hood in India is the price. 0 Reply
