The XUV300 Sportz is powered by a 1.2L turbo-petrol engine that makes 129 BHP and 230 Nm.

According to a media report, Mahindra has received ICAT (International Centre for Automotive Technology) certification for its upcoming XUV300 variant powered by a more powerful turbo-petrol engine.

The new ‘Sportz’ variant comes with a 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder direct-injection turbo-petrol engine. It is said to produce 129 BHP and 230 Nm and is expected to be paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox.

Currently, the XUV300 is offered with a 1.2L turbo-petrol engine rated at 109 BHP and 200 Nm. Whether Mahindra will sell the Sportz variant alongside the less powerful version remains to be seen.

The XUV300 Sportz was initially scheduled to go on sale in April 2020. However, the launch was pushed back due to the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic.
