Anand Mahindra, MD and Chairman, Mahindra & Mahindra has bought a fully customized TUV300. The Mahindra Boss was taken by the TUV’s design at the launch itself and expressed his desire to have one for himself. However, being the boss did not help him to cut down the waiting periods. The customized TUV300 was delivered to him after he waited for the prescribed period.

Anand Mahindra’s TUV300 is equipped with a body kit called the ‘Armour Kit’ by Mahindra. The name undoubtedly suits the kit because of its heavy looking cosmetic upgrades over the stock TUV300. The body kit provides front and rear stone guards, front bumper extensions, side cladding, fat wheel arches and marker lamps with a shroud on the roof. The bonnet of the customized TUV300 has a ‘Hull’ on it. Other than this there are chrome touch-ups running all over the body from the bumpers to around the grille, on the ORVM’s and also on the door handles. The SUV is also offered with bicycle racks, side steps and new alloys.
The interiors of Anand Mahindra’s TUV300 are not left out. The interiors in the customized TUV can be selected from a very wide range of options with different dashboard trims and advanced infotainment system. The variety of options for interiors with the ‘Armour Kit’ are available at all the Mahindra dealerships.
The customized TUV300 is powered by the regular 1.5-liter, 3-cylinder, turbo diesel engine that produces 80 BHP and 320 NM of peak torque. This motor is paired with a 5-speed manual transmission. However, an AMT option is also offered. The Mahindra TUV300 that Anand Mahindra owns costs around INR 11 lakhs on-road Mumbai.
