Mahindra’s sub-4m SUV XUV300 has now got AMT (Automated Manual Transmission) variants at an additional cost of Rs 55,000 over the manual W8 and W8(O) variants. Do note that the 6-speed AMT is coupled only with the diesel engine.
|W8 Diesel||Rs 11,50,000|
|W8(O) Diesel||Rs 12,69,000|
The 1.5-litre (1497 cc) 4-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine offers the same 85.8 kW (115 bhp) at 3750 rpm and 300 Nm of torque at 1500 – 2500 rpm.
Branded as autoShift, the AMT features manual mode, anti-rollback on slopes, and creep function that helps in bumper-to-bumper traffic. Other features include Drive and Reverse Lock Out which prevents sudden shifts between reverse and drive modes unless the speed drops to less than 5 km/h, and Creep disable on Door Opening which prevents the vehicle from moving if the doors are open.
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 – Veejay Ram Nakra, Chief of Sales and Marketing, Automotive Division, M&M Ltd
