Mahindra kuv100 comapct SUV
Mahindra KUV100 has highly peculiar and rugged looks considering it is a part of the hatchback segment. The car looks like a proper SUV from the front and it will come as a shock to many that such a powerful looking vehicle is an compact hatchback actually. In profile, you?ll notice the brow that stretches into the front door. The Mahindra stands 1,655mm tall, and sits 170mm off the ground. The rear doors handles are mounted next to the window la the Chevrolet Beat. It?s all tastefully done, the 14-inch wheels aside, which make the car look somewhat undernourished. There?s even a sharp, eye-catching waistline that flows to the back of the car and ends above the tail-lamps. The lower half of the KUV gets plastic cladding which will help keep dings and scratches at bay. Inside, you're treated to a well-appointed, spacious cabin with ample storage space and comfortable accommodation for five occupants. All-round visibility is good, and the cabin is quite airy with a sizeable window area. The high floating dashboard incorporates an instrument cluster which looks like a downsized version of the TUV300's ? with an analogue tacho and speedo readouts on either side of the digital screen which displays gear position, engine temperature and fuel level. Space is the name of the game, here. The KUV is 1,715mm wide (with the ORVMS folded) to meet regulations for vehicles that can accommodate six occupants in two rows. The five-seat and six-seat versions are sold as separate models with both getting a dash-mounted gear lever (like on the Maruti Ritz). The five-seater gets two individual seats up front that come with moderate bolstering, while the six-seater gets a flat bench, where the backrest for the middle passenger folds to double up as an armrest and the bench seat, once folded up, gives you access to storage space underneath it. Legroom at the back is great thanks to the flat floor, but we noted there was some cladding around the C-pillar that deprives rear passengers of shoulder room. There?s enough space in the boot for a couple of heavy bags. However, the boot lip isn?t flat, which might make loading and unloading goods a bit of a task. ITsss awesomeee!!!!
