The 7-seater version of the Mahindra XUV300 has been confirmed for European markets. Indian launch is likely to happen in 2021.
Just like the SsangYong Tivoli which it is based on, the Mahindra XUV300 will also get a 7 seater version which can be internally named Mahindra S204. This development has been recently given the green light and confirmed by Mahindra to the European media through the mid-term roadmap.
The Mahindra XUV300 7-seater will be available with a 1.5-litre GDI petrol engine.
According to some reports, the 7-seater Mahindra XUV300 is likely to be named ‘Mahindra XUV400’ and it will be positioned between the XUV300 and XUV500 in the company’s products line-up. The 7-seater SUV will join the competition with the Tata Hexa and the Mahindra Scorpio elder sibling.
In the Euro-spec version, the XUV400 is in a likelihood to come with a 1.5-litre naturally-aspirated direct-injection GDI petrol engine under the hood. Probably, this engine will be the same unit that could be found in the upcoming Mahindra Marazzo.
The 7-seater Mahindra XUV300 (Mahindra XUV400) will possibly get a host of design cues from the 5-seater version.
Until now, whether the 7-seat XUV300 might get the design cues from the 5-seater version or the SsangYong Tivoli Air remains to be seen. However, the image used by the company in the roadmap is of the longer version of the SsangYong Tivoli on which the XUV300 is based.
For the reference, the SsangYong Tivoli Air gets 4,440 mm length, 1,798 mm width and 1,635 mm height along with the wheelbase of 2,600 mm. Its wheelbase is similar to that of the SsangYong Tivoli but has an extended rear overhang for an enlarged boot space.
The Mahindra XUV300 7-seater might be launched in India in 2021.
The Mahindra XUV400 will share almost all features from the India-spec Mahindra XUV300, which means the new SUV will offer power sunroof, leather-wrapped seats, dual-zone auto climate control, 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and navigation compatibility and many more. Besides, it is also expected to get some additional features for a greater convenience and comfort.
The Mahindra XUV300 7-seater or Mahindra XUV400 is set to enter the European markets in the calender year 2022. The Indian launch is predicted to happen for some time 2021.
