Mahindra has silently launched the BS6 KUV100 NXT. The company has priced the upgraded model from INR 5.50 lakh*.
The Mahindra KUV100 NXT was available in 18 different configurations before the BS6 upgrade. Now, it is available in only 4 configurations. A diesel engine option is no longer available, and the same goes for the 5-seat seating layout option. Mahindra has also discontinued the K2 and K8 Dual Tone grades of the KUV100 NXT.
The Mahindra KUV100 NXT is available in only the K2+, K4+, K6+ and K8 carried over grades now. Buyers can have it as a six-seater or an eight-seater. Under the hood, there’s an upgraded, BS6 1.2-litre mFalcon G80 naturally aspirated three-cylinder petrol engine. Like the BS4 version, it produces 82 BHP of maximum power at 5,500 rpm and 115 Nm of maximum torque at 3,500-3,600 rpm. Similarly, it is available with only a 5-speed manual transmission.
The 1.2-litre mFalcon D75 turbocharged three-cylinder diesel engine that hasn't been upgraded to BS6 develops a maximum power of 77 BHP at 3,750 rpm and a maximum torque of 190 Nm at 1,750-2,250 rpm. It also sends drive to the wheels via a 5-speed manual transmission. Select dealers might have the BS4 Mahindra KUV100 NXT diesel in stock. Dealers across India with the exception of Delhi-NCR are going to be able to clear 10% of their remaining BS4 stock for 10 days from the day the national lockdown is lifted.
