Mahindra KUV100

We got a little confused after hearing that Mahindra will be launching a compact Utility vehicle to compete with the B-segment hatchback’s that the Auto manufacturers in India offers. Mahindra from the very beginning called it a SUV and now that they have taken the wraps of the vehicle and it surely looks dynamic and also posses the SUV stance. However that is not all the compact Utility vehicle promises many first in class features including a peppy performance, spacious and roomy interiors with an option of even a 6 seating towards the front and offcourse the new mFALCON family of engines under its hood which was developed in house by Mahindra.

Although this vehicle will compete against the likes of Hyundai Grand i10 and the Maruti Swift the KUV100 looks nothing like these conventional hatchbacks. Towards the front you get this powerful stance with wraparound headlamps and an aggressive and beefy front bumper, the door handles towards the side profile has been placed on the C-pillar and the sporty spoiler towards the rear profile all adds to the unconventional styling of the KUV100.

Mahindra added many first in class features in this new car as well; to begin with let us inform you that the KUV100 gets first in class Micro-Hybrid technology which actually is the engine start/stop function and also two different modes including Power and Eco modes which helps contributes towards better fuel efficiency. Special attention has also been taken to make this one of the most safest vehicles in its segment, the KUV100 gets ABS and EBD as standard across all its variants while the dual airbags are available as an option across all its variants, it also gets ISOFIX mounts for child seat on rear seat .

The KUV surely manages to stand out from the crowd and even opens a completely new segment which will attract the hatchback buyers of the country because certainly it offers a lot more than the usual hatchbacks. Offered with both diesel and petrol engine under its hood will this new offering from Mahindra will be able to pull all the crowd towards it lets find out.

But now after the launch of the Maruti Ignis which actually is more features rich and definitely more fuel efficient. Mahindra definitely needed something fancy in their plate to drive the attention from the recently launched rival on to their own product.

Now in order to increase its sales figures Mahindra surely needed something which could bring back the customers interest back to their entry level offering and hence the anniversary edition. Now unfortunately this special edition KUV100 does not get any major updates under the hood but it surely gets few cosmetic updates which has made the car more attractive.

2017 Mahindra KUV100

the updated Crossover gets a refined engine and few cosmetic updates

Mahindra launched the KUV100 exactly a year ago in India; the auto manufacturer pitched it as a small SUV and their entry level offering for the Indian market. Basically this is actually a beefed up hatchback and gets both petrol and diesel engine under the hood. Although the KUV100 made a fiery start in terms of sales when it was launched initially but slowly the sales number declined and in the month of December 2016 only 1953 units of the vehicle was sold which is actually its lowest numbers since its launch.

Like you all know that the Mahindra KUV100 is definitely not a compact SUV and is also priced lower than most of the other compact SUV offerings. This car now competes directly in the B+ segment hatchbacks and locks horns directly with the recently introduced Maruti Suzuki Ignis which too is actually a beefed up Cross hatchback.

Now that its rival has been launched here how can Mahindra possible stay behind? Thus they have decided to introduce the updated variant of the hatchback. According to the reports of Autocar India not only the KUV100 will get some cosmetic updates but some mechanical updates as well which will make the crossover even more fuel efficient and refined.
