Mahindra XUV300 AMT is set to be launched soon
Before the entrance of Mahindra XUV300, the carmaker has already launched some models at the same segment, including Quanto and TUV300. However, none of these could reach the level of popularity as the XUV300. Last month, it is reported that Mahindra is no longer producing the automatic TUV300, ahead of the XUV300 automatic launch. Recently, Mahindra officially confirmed the discontinuation of the automatic TUV300 and removed it from the Mahindra’s official website.
