Mahindra KUV 100 stands for?
Mahindra KUV 100, is a six seat classy young SUV, as claimed by the Mahindra and Mahindra. The KUV 100 will be launched during the festive day of 15 Th January 2016. The KUV 100 will house a world class low weight m-falcon engine system and boasts its progressive external appearance. The Mahindra SUV looks modern as well retains its classic Indian touch and it can be very well related to its siblings. Mahindra had given birth to a next generation KUV, with good parameters and manual transmission system for all its seven variants. The provision of dual airbags and ABS for its base, middle, high and the top notch models is noteworthy within its economic price range.
The next generation KUV, looks aggressive and taller when compared to its previous launch. Mahindra KUV100 retains its boxy front appearance and enhances its aggression with the presence of a modified front grille that is fixed inside a honey combed outer shell. The wrap around head lights and the fog lamps increases the aesthetic look of the car. Even though the external grille gives a poising look, the ruggedness is added only by the lower edgy bumper and the masculine tail gate. The presence of curvy side profile is supplemented by the alloy wheels and the exterior designing adds feather in the cap for the Mahindra’s think- tankers.
The interior design is driver centric with all the controls and the meters are accessible by the driver. The upholstery is piano shaped with the presence of gear knobs in the front dashboard, replaced from the floor for providing a good leg room for the co-passengers. The seats are clubbed to give a bench-alike appearance and the second row seats are foldable for an easy access. The central console houses the Bluetooth, music system and the other smart applications. The pull type hand break is the only exception in this baby SUV and the interior quality and the finish gives us a TUV 300 impression in one word.
