Not so long ago Mahindra has revealed that it has already started working on the TUV300 facelift. The carmaker had said that the updated version of the subcompact SUV will be launched in 2019, and recently, a prototype of the Mahindra TUV300 facelift was spotted testing in Chennai. The facelifted TUV300 was seen with some heavy camouflage, however, the SUV is expected to come with some considerable cosmetic updates, new features, and possibly even some mechanical updates, like a BS-VI compliant engine.
Back at the time of revealing the company's plan to introduce the TUV300 facelift, Veejay Ram Nakra Chief of Sales and Marketing (Automotive Division) Mahindra and Mahindra, had mentioned that that the carmaker is making some substantial investments not only on the styling part but also in terms of technology and engineering to make TUV300 a better product. This possibly means that Mahindra will be making modifications to the SUV's body structure, adhering to the new safety norms, which are set to become mandatory from October 2019.

Under the hood, we expect the 2019 Mahindra TUV300 facelift to come with the existing 1.5-litre mHawk100 diesel engine. The 1,995 cc, three-cylinder oil burner is tuned to churn out about 100 bhp and develop 240 Nm of peak torque, while being mated to either a 5-speed manual or an AMT gearbox. Mahindra had mentioned that it's also investing in making its products compliant to BS-IV emission norms, so there is a possibility that the upcoming TUV300 facelift, could also be BS-VI ready.
