The AMT transmission on the XUV300, called AutoShift will be available only on the diesel-powered top-trims. This includes the W8 and the W8(O), which are now priced at Rs 11.50 lakh and Rs 12.70 lakh, respectively. Both prices are ex-showroom (India).
Mahindra has also confirmed that the XUV300 AMT (AutoShift) will be available across all dealerships in India, with deliveries starting immediately. The new AMT variant of the sub-4 metre compact SUV will also be available in three colour options: Aquamarine, Pearl White and Rage Red.
Veejay Ram Nakra, Chief of Sales and Marketing, Automotive Division, M&M Ltd. stated:
"At Mahindra, it has been our constant endeavour to offer advanced and accessible technologies to all our customers and we are delighted to introduce the AutoShift in the XUV300 for that perfect blend of effortless driving and exhilarating performance. After receiving an overwhelming response for its manual version since its launch in February 2019, we are confident that the XUV300 AutoShift will further strengthen the brand's value proposition and expand the market for us."
The Mahindra XUV300 AMT will continue to be powered by the same 1.5-litre diesel engine producing 115bhp and 300Nm of torque. The AMT transmission will be offered as an option, along with the standard six-speed manual gearbox.
Mahindra also offers the XUV300 in a petrol variant. This comes with a 1.2-litre turbo-petrol engine. It produces 110bhp and 200Nm of torque and is mated to a standard six-speed gearbox.
Being the top-spec variants, the Mahindra XUV300 AMT will come packed with features and a host of equipment; many of them being either best-in-class or segment-first. Some of the features include seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system, dual-zone climate control and different steering modes as well.
Thoughts On The Mahindra XUV300 AMT
The Mahindra XUV300 AMT had been spied testing on multiple occasions in the market, ahead of its launch. The new XUV300 AMT variant will help Mahindra attract more customers towards the product. The compact-SUV from the brand will continue to rival the likes of the Hyundai Venue, Ford EcoSport and the Maruti Vitara Brezza in the segment.
