Sagar Parikh, I'm the international news editor at IndianAutosBlog.com. I love everything that has a steering wheel!
Second monocoque product from Mahindra.
Following its market launch last month, the Mahindra KUV100 has made its first motorshow appearance at Auto Expo 2016. Launched as a crossover, the Mahindra KUV100 is targeted at the Hyundai Grand i10 and Maruti Swift.
The Mahindra KUV100 is available with two mFalcon engines: a 1.2-litre G80 petrol unit that produces 82 bhp and 115 Nm of torque and a 1.2-litre D75 diesel unit that produces 77 bhp and 190 Nm of torque. Both engines are paired to a 5-speed manual transmission. ARAI has rated the fuel economy of the petrol and diesel models at 18.15 km/l and 25.32 km/l respectively.
The Mahindra KUV100 is available in two seating configurations: 5-seat and 6-seat – with the latter featuring a bench-type seat in the front to accommodate three adults. Noteworthy features of the Mahindra KUV100 include LED daytime running lights, follow-me lights, LED roof light, 6-speaker audio system with USB and Aux input and interior mood lighting.
Like the Mahindra XUV500, the Mahindra KUV100 is also a major product for Mahindra for its global markets. The company will start exporting the new entry-level passenger car to first right-hand drive markets like Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and South Africa this year.
