    Listen to this Article

    Mahindra is gearing up to launch a mid-life update of the XUV300. As we’ve reported earlier, it will sport enhanced styling on the outside, and while its interiors are likely to remain largely similar, it will feature a larger, more modern touchscreen infotainment, and it could also feature a digital instrument cluster. But what’s likely to significantly boost its premium quotient is the addition of a segment-first panoramic sunroof. And we now have confirmation that it will get a new automatic transmission. 

    1. XUV300 facelift likely to get a segment-first panoramic sunroof
    2. Launch likely in first half of 2024

    Mahindra XUV300 facelift: engine options, new automatic gearbox 

    Mahindra is looking to introduce an Aisin-sourced 6-speed automatic (torque converter) with the most powerful 131hp 1.2-litre turbo-petrol (TGDI) engine. in the updated XUV300. This TGDI engine thus far was only on sale with a 6-speed manual gearbox, and the addition of a fourth-gen 6-speed torque converter is likely to widen its appeal. The Aisin-sourced transmission is the same unit that does duty in the Skoda Kushaq, Volkswagen Taigun, Skoda Slavia and Volkswagen Virtus with their 1.0-litre TSI turbo-petrol engines.

    The Mahindra XUV300 facelift could continue with the other engine options as well, which include a 110hp, 1.2-litre turbo-petrol engine and a 117hp, 1.5-litre diesel engine. Both engines are likely to continue using the 6-speed manual and automated manual transmission options.

    Aisin has been supplying its 6-speed automatic transmission to Mahindra starting with the now-discontinued XUV500, followed by the XUV700 and Scorpio N in different iterations. Even, Maruti sources its 6-speed automatic gearbox from the Japanese component manufacturer to do duty in cars like the Brezza, Ertiga, Fronx, XL6 and Grand Vitara. MG also sources the Aisin 6-speeder automatic for the Astor Turbo.

    Mahindra XUV300 facelift launch

    Mahindra is likely to launch the XUV300 facelift in the first half of 2024, and it will rival other compact SUVs like the updated Kia Sonet, which will be introduced in the first quarter of 2024, Tata Nexon facelift, as well as the Hyundai Venue and Maruti Brezza.
