mahindra xuv300 sportz variant to be launched soon with more power & cosmetic tweaks

The Mahindra XUV300 is one of the brand’s best-selling cars in the country. In fact, it is one of the best-selling cars in its whole segment, which is no easy feat. Basically, the Indian version of the SsangYong Tivoli, the Mahindra XUV300, has been applauded for its 5-star safety rating, elaborate features list, and comfortable yet roomy cabin. Competing against the likes of the Hyundai Venue, Kia Sonet, and Tata Nexon, the XUV300 is currently available with two engine and transmission choices. Back at the Auto Expo in 2020, Mahindra had unveiled a more spirited version of the XUV300 called the Sportz. It is now becoming clear that the XUV300 Sportz will be launched soon enough!

The XUV300 rivals cars like the Kia Sonet

The most obvious difference between the upcoming Sportz and other XUV300 variants is what’s lurking under the hood. While it is the same 1.2-liter turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine that we see in the outgoing XUV300, it no longer makes 108hp and 200Nm of torque. In fact, engineers have recalibrated the motor, so it now pushes out 130hp and 230Nm of peak torque. The mStallion engine will definitely add a dose or two of pep to the overall performance of the XUV300 Sportz. Upon launch, the Mahindra XUV300 Sportz variant will get a 6-speed manual gearbox as standard, though the availability of a 6-speed AMT or even a traditional torque converter unit remains a possibility.

The XUV300 Sportz features a few cosmetic upgrades on the exterior

Besides the punchier powertrain, the rest of the XUV300 Sportz should be mechanically identical to the outgoing model. Still, the upgrade to the 1.2-liter motor will ensure that the Mahindra XUV300 retains its position as the car with the torquiest engine in the class. However, it also means there are still no plans for an all-wheel-drive variant planned, with the XUV300 doggedly remaining a front-wheel-drive platform. On the other hand, Mahindra will be making some cosmetic tweaks to the Sportz variant to set it apart from the standard XUV300. The most apparent of these will include sporty decals along the side, red brake calipers, and gloss black roof rails.

There will also be more gloss black bits on the outside. These will be seen on areas such as the front bumper, grille, headlamps, and door pillars. Much of the exterior of the Mahindra XUV300 looks smart, while the 17-inch dual-tone alloy rims seem pretty sporty too. Meanwhile, the interior of the XUV300 Sportz will more or less resemble that of the standard model. It is being touted, however, that the interior of the Sportz will feature an all-black theme. If true, that will make the cabin feel sporty but at the expense of making it seem less airy. To add to the sporty vibe, the XUV300 Sportz’s interior will have splashes of red stitching and red accents, too.

The standard XUV300 gets a lighter dual-tone interior

Mahindra would likely base the upcoming Sportz variant on the XUV300’s range-topping W8 (O) trim. This will mean that there should be no dearth of standard features and convenience tech onboard. The XUV300 Sportz should get an electric sunroof, keyless entry & go, leatherette upholstery, dual-zone climate control, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. These will be complemented by a 6-speaker audio system and a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment head unit that supports both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The XUV300 also gets Mahindra’s Bluesense Plus connected car technology which allows users to lock/unlock the doors and even track the car in real-time.

The XUV300 comes loaded with safety features

In terms of its safety equipment, the upcoming XUV300 Sports should get plenty. There will be all-around parking sensors, ABS with EBD, Brake Assist, 7 airbags, Hill Start Assist, and Electronic Stability Control. Moreover, with its fantastic 5-star safety rating, the Mahindra XUV300 is one of the safest cars on sale in India. And while Mahindra hasn’t announced a date for the upcoming XUV300 Sportz, it will definitely be launched this year itself.
