Mahindra XUV300 TurboSport: most powerful engine in its class
The XUV300 TurboSport draws its power from a 130hp, 230Nm (250Nm with overboost function), 1.2-litre, three-cylinder, turbo-petrol unit that comes mated to a 6-speed manual transmission.
In comparison to the existing 1.2-litre turbo-petrol MPFI engine, the new motor features a 250bar GDI (gasoline direct injection) fuel system that improves performance and fuel efficiency. Mahindra claims a 0-60kph sprint time of 5 seconds with the XUV300 TurboSport.
The XUV300 also gets a mild-hybrid start-stop system to further improve fuel efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions, and Mahindra claims that this new engine has a fuel economy of 18.2kpl.
This new engine produces 20hp and 30Nm more than the older 110hp, 1.2-litre turbo-petrol unit, which makes the XUV300 the most powerful compact SUV in its class. Both turbo-petrol engines will co-exist, along with the 115hp, 1.5-litre diesel engine.
