Mahindra has introduced a new dual-tone colour scheme to its popular compact SUV TUV300 in India. The new colour scheme is a combination of silver body with black roof and blackened side pillars.

The new colour also includes dual-tone front and rear bumpers. To be available in the T8 variant of TUV300, the new colour will cost Rs 15,000 extra over the 9.15 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

"The launch of the new silver and black dual-tone TUV300 will build on its aspiration quotient by dialling up on style and exclusivity, and thus further enhance the brand's appeal," said Vivek Nayer, Chief Marketing Officer, Automotive Division, Mahindra and Mahindra.

"We are confident that this new colour scheme will soon become very popular among our discerning customers and fans," he added.

Mahindra had earlier introduced Bronze Green to its TUV300, which is available on a made-to-order basis for all variants. Mahindra TUV300 is also available in Verve Blue, Dynamite Red, Molten Orange, Glacier White, Majestic Silver and Bold Black.

Launched in September 2015, Mahindra TUV300 has been witnessing great demand in the country. Mahindra TUV300 is offered in three variants — TUV300 T4, TV300 T6 and TUV300 T8. NuvoSport and TUV300 are the two compact SUVs of Mahindra to come equipped with automated manual transmission (AMT).
