Currently, the Mahindra XUV300 is available with a turbopetrol 1,2-litre three-cylinder engine which offers a power output of 81 kW and 200 N.m of torque. A new rumour suggests that the Indian manufacturer has plans to increase this amount for an upcoming update.
As Autocar India reports, we can expect the petrol variant of the Mahindra XUV300 to deliver 97 kW and 230 N.m which still transmit power to the front wheels via six-speed manual gearbox. Within the Indian market, this crossover is available with an AMT as well but this transmission may be offered to the uprated engine at a later stage.
The Indian publication says it was expecting this power output to be introduced to the Mahindra XUV300 Sportz. This model was revealed at the Auto Expo but just landed up being a cosmetic alteration that featured specific cosmetic upgrades, red brake callipers and unique decals.
It’s understood that this bump in power will be introduced in a mid-cycle facelift possibly next year which comes four years after it was officially revealed.
