ok now that I've seen more pictures of the car, it is really not that bad. I belong the "function over form" camp and if the car can deliver on all that it claims + a good review on Team-BHP, I might even consider it in the future. It the reviews are good, then this car will totally be VFM!!

The fit and finish also seems to be much better compared to the Quanto and I just hope the car has decent rear seat space (since it is sub 4 m). Need to check out the car now.

Mahindra offers 4th and 5th year extended warranty at INR 14,950 if you choose it within 60 days. You can find the details in the below link.

http://www.mahindratuv300.com/mahind...d=owner-manual

Interesting item I found under the Maintenance TIPS section in the above link is below. There are many other tips but look at the second bullet recommends rolling in neutral as fuel saving option. While this is definitely an option for saving fuel, Is this not a risk and can a manufacturer recommend this?

Quote:
Fuel Economy
  • Get up to 25% more fuel efficiency from your Mahindra TUV300 by following these tips:
    • Accelerate steadily, brake gradually. Plan your trip, pace your speed and avoid roads with heavy traffic. Sudden bursts of speed can prove to be harmful and costly.
    • Rolling in neutral saves 15-20 cc of fuel. Ensure perfect wheel balance and you can cover up to 20% of your distance in neutral.

Top manual version still crosses 10L OTR in Bangalore?
T8 Manual - 10.4L, T8 Auto 11.3L.
The way vehicles cost these days!!
TUV300 is supposed to be a low cost SUV under 4m and 1.5L diesel, so after taxed at lowest excise duty bracket, cannot believe the prices crossing a million.
Of course - Agree it offers a decent list of equipment, and the prices are bound to increase with the inclusion of each feature. But still, where are the prices heading?
I understand that Polo 1.2 GT TSI petrol costs this much, and considering all that, TUV300 is still a VFM proposition, but this is the initial reaction after seeing the OTR prices!

BTW why there is about 0.9L difference for AT and manual versions? AMT is so costly? AMT trim even skips the micro-hybrid.

Just saw the specs! Price is very good but why does the AMT version generate 81 BHP while MT generates 84 BHP!? I think this is for ARAI rating. Why does M&M makes some stupid mistake always?

The prices are not very different than most of us expected or desired. Great pricing by M&M and all we need to see is the test drive report. From initial hints, the build quality seems nice. Only the drive dynamics and handling need to be thoroughly analysed. Will try to drop into one of the dealers for a TD soon.

Went to sheetal and there was a TUV 300 on display. Was parked next to a XUV 500 and Scorpio inside the showroom.

Front looks definitely bigger than the XUV. Yes, you need to climb into the vehicle. Good space all around. Made it a point to sit in the third row too and it indeed was comfortable.

The second row can easily take in three people. The other specs that members shared in the thread are mostly the same.

The sales person allowed me to switch on the engine and given that it is a three-pot one, it was indeed noisy. The gear was vibrating like hell. Will get the vehicle for a td on Saturday

The more I look at the side profile, the more I am reminded of the Premier Rio. Maybe that's because of the short rear overhang and the rearward sloping roof.

Mahindra management and engineers should have given a bit more time on its design. I think that this car is Priced very well, has all the required bells and whistles and most important the safety features. But the car does not have the WOW factor that other cars in this segment have and I think that this will be the deterrent in its sales.

You have hit the nail with this comment. The TUV300 looks like a half baked product. What I feel is that people will not aspire to be driving a TUV300.

The car looks alright but the AMT has taken away the steam. A proper AT box would have justified the price difference.

I thought Quanto was ugly until this bhaisahab came along. After such a dismissal of Quanto, Mahindra has not learnt any lessons to be honest. Not one. Compare this to its competition, aka Eco Sport or lower versions of the Duster and I would not touch this from a mile, actually, I would not touch this even if this was the only option I had.

Look at that front end, its like the designer got to the headlights and got bored and just took a scale and came up with whatever last minute he could think of. The entire thing looks inappropriate in size.

Interiors look good, but with such sad looks, I guess won't matter much.

Quick question - the second seat if fold able (not split) but one of the comments said it doesn't go flat forward. how does it provide the extra boot space then?

I think the design will grow on me. Form over function with the safety features. As for price, well we know the prices are being pushed one segment generally in the market and also M&M has to maintain it between market segments.

Only thing left is - engine performance for which i will depend on Tbhp review only

Visited Anant cars showroom today along with my friend who took delivery of his XUV.

First Impressions:
1. Looks butch from front, bonnet is higher than XUV's bonnet
2. Side profile looks decent
3. Rear 3/4th quarter looks the best.
4. Rear looks good with the spare wheel mounting
5. Tyres are of decent size for the car
6. Interior looks premium in the front whereas the fabrics does not looks so.
7. 2nd row is good for 3 people to sit comfortably
8. Small hump in 2nd row which will make the middle passenger comfortable
9. Jumps seat in the 3rd row should be comfortable for shorter drives
10. Ample space of headroom in all 3 rows.
11. You sit low even with height adjusted at full range
12. Plastic quality seems to be good.
13. All 5 doors has bottle holders
14. Ofcourse, engine was started and felt noisy (Probably because the doors were open)
15. Infotainment system felt good and speakers were of decent quality
16. Sheet metal used on all doors felt very thin and there was no thud effect when you close them.
