The front fascia of the SUV will also sport a two-part grille and a larger central air intake unit.
The rear design of the SUV will also be modelled after the upcoming Born Electric series. The C-shaped tail lamps will feature a sleek look.

Along the sides, the Mahindra XUV300 facelift will receive a new design for its alloy wheels.
