Both engines will be offered with a five-speed manual transmission, while an AMT version is believed to be launched at a later stage.
The Mahindra KUV100 will be offered in four main variants - K2, K4, K6 and K8, and will be available in 7 colours. The car gets dual airbags and ABS as standard, while the higher priced versions get EBD, engine immobilizer system, keyless entry, illuminated keyhole, audio system with six speakers, electrically-adjustable ORVMs, follow-me-home head lamps, micro hybrid system, and twin driving modes (power and ECO).
