Mahindra XUV300 to get 130PS mStallion turbo-petrol across all variants
A document leak has revealed that Mahindra is set to introduce the 1.2-litre Stallion turbo-petrol to the Mahindra XUV300 line-up. It is suggested that this engine will be offered across all four variants of the Mahindra sub-four-metre SUV, although still unclear is whether this replaces the current 1.2-litre turbo.
The Stallion family of engines was first debuted by Mahindra at the 2020 Auto Expo with the larger 2.0-litre petrol having already debuted on the Thar and then the XUV700. The 1.2-litre mStallion was initially slated for a sportier Sportz variant of the Mahindra but Mahindra seems to have changed course to now offer it more widely. Notably, this engine was also to be fitted to the Ford Ecosport as part of the failed joint venture between the two firms.
This BSVI-compliant motor makes 130PS and 230Nm, an increase of 20PS and 30 Nm over the current turbo-petrol motor seen on the XUV300. The mStallion line-up also consists of a four-cylinder 1.5-litre unit that will possibly make its way to the Marazzo as well as the slew of new models planned by Mahindra. The mStallion line-up has been developed in-house by the home-grown carmaker at its Mahindra Research Valley R and D facility and incorporates tech such as direct injection and an over-boost function. The brand goes on to claim that these engines deliver better fuel efficiency along with significant improvements in NVH, aside from good low-end torque.
The current 1.2-litre petrol is the Mahindra XUV300 makes 110PS and 200 Nm, a diesel version is also offered with a 1.5-litre motor making 117PS and 300 Nm. Both are paired with a six-speed manual and a Marelli-sourced six-speed AMT. The mStallion motor is initially expected to only be offered with the manual. Know more about the XUV300 here.
Prices for the Mahindra XUV300 start from Rs 7.96 lakh for the base W4 petrol, going up to W8(O) at Rs 11.96 lakh for the petrol manual variants. Expect the XUV300 mStallion to charge a Rs 50,000 to 60,000 premium over this.
