Dual-tone paint options include Blazing Bronze with black roof, Napoli Black with white roof, and Pearl White with black roof. Monotone options include Blazing Bronze, Pearl White and Napoli Black.
Key features include red accents on the upper and lower grille; all-black ORVMs; 16-inch Diamond-cut alloy wheels; an electric sunroof; a 7-inch touchscreen; Android Auto & Apple CarPlay connectivity; dual-zone climate control; leatherette seats; leather-wrapped steering & gear lever; 6 airbags; ABS; ESP, and hill-start assist.
But that’s not really what you’re interested to know, is it? Well, the XUV300 TurboSport packs a 1.2-litre 4-cylinder turbo petrol engine that pumps out 96 kW (130 metric hp) at 5000 rpm and 230 Nm (170 lb-ft) of torque from 1500 to 3750 rpm. Compared with the regular XUV300 turbo petrol, you got 15 kW (20 metric hp) and 30 Nm (22 lb-ft) more. Most likely, the turbocharger is a bit bigger here. But anyway, the engine is coupled with a 6-speed manual gearbox.
