Mahindra KUV100 re-imagined with new grille and bumper – Rendering
Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.
To launch on January 15.
A Team-BHP member has worked on a new render of the Mahindra KUV100 featuring a new honeycomb grille and bumper design, which lend a dynamic and new look to the compact crossover’s face.
Mahindra aims to garner attention from B-segment compact hatchbacks like the Hyundai Grand i10 and Maruti Swift by offering the road presence of an SUV, decent equipment list and a new fuel efficient range of engines.
Speaking of engines, the KUV100 debuts a new range of “Falcon” engines, which includes an 82 bhp 1.2-liter three cylinder petrol (mFalcon G80) and 77 bhp 1.2-liter three-cylinder diesel (mFalcon D75) engines. Mahindra is yet to detail the gearbox options, but is likely to offer a 5-speed manual gearbox and an AMT (unconfirmed).
Bookings for the Mahindra KUV100 are being accepted at all dealerships across India since December 19, and the crossover will go on sale from January 15, 2016. It will be manufactured at the company’s plant in Chakan (Pune) where its bigger monocoque brother, the XUV500, is also made.
