The compact SUV segment space
in India is just getting better by the day. Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd has
announced that its much awaited SUV with project code U301 has been named Mahindra
TUV300. Pronounced as TUV, 3 double
‘Oh’, the ‘T’ in TUV300 stands for ‘TOUGH’ to highlight the tough and stylish
SUV design. The numeric ‘300’ represents the series name, said a press release
from the company.
The design of the tough and stylish Mahindra
TUV300 has been inspired by a battle tank. Raised shoulders, high front nose,
flat roof, high ground clearance, and straight bonnet give the Mahindra TUV300
an iconic true blue SUV silhouette.

DNA of Mahindra vehicles, the Mahindra TUV300 is an all new SUV platform. The
Mahindra TUV300 has been designed and developed in-house by the Mahindra design
team. The research and development of Mahindra TUV300 has been carried out at

research and development activities for this SUV were planned with global
standards of quality, technology, testing norms, safety, regulations and
emissions from the very start to delight the customer.
