Youngest in the race....
Each car needs to meet certain requirements and definitely the KUV100 fulfil it. A Premium car should have superior craftsmanship to attract customers, a good engine capacity for great performance and have lots of storage space to score high on practicality. This is all fulfilled by the KUV100. The Mahindra automobile industry always have tricks up their sleeve to expand the their customer base.The latest entrant KUV100,an SUV that want a share of hatchback market.The Kool Utility Vehicle(KUV) is mahindra's newest and the most compact passenger they have ever made. INTERIORS- Interior is smart and offer good fit and finish.grey dash and door feature silver as well as piano black inserts.Dashboard is smart and split in two sections.The design is simple but striking.The steering wheel is chunky and made well to get a superior grip.The KUV100 is surprisingly spacious vehicle in this size.The centre seat of back seat folds up and act as a armrest for passenger and provide two cup holder.the entire passenger seat folds and gives access storage compartmentThe 3.5 inch music display system could do with an overhaul but it fits in the floating dashboard perfectly. I wish to check with Mahindra if there are any aftermarket options available for the infotainment system, preferably an Apple CarPlay system that I can install at a later date.The cooled glove compartment is a fancy addition which doesn't serve much purpose practically. The sunglass holder on the top near the car night lamp is a cool addition too. EXTERIOR- Parking sensors & reverse cameras are another point of concern seeing as they are not available even in the top end K8 model and have to be installed aftermarket. Exteriors:- The exteriors impress you quite a lot. The design looks more stylish and premium.The LED lights also give you a clearer view at night. The pillar mounted rear door handels are similar to chevrolet beat.Top variant alloy wheels as standards.The rear end is quite smart with rectangular tail lamp.the lower section of bumper isnot colored giving it a dual tone appearence.The bumper is equipped with fog light.The front track is wider than other cars which gives the vehicle ythe added appearence. SAFETY- You are in safe hands if you are travelling in the KUV100 as you have almost all the safety features such as ABS, EBD and BA. KUV get an amazing airbag system which is available only in the higher models. Drive Quality and Performance- Start your engine and enjoy a very smooth and comfortable ride. The engine is quite silent and delivers a good amount of power. The ride quality over bumpy road surfaces is a very smooth glide.17 kmpl is delivered in the city roads and about 20 kmpl in the highway in the both fuel options.which does not fit well in the character. My Conclusion:- In my opinion, The KUV100 is an awesome and kool product, which Mahindra India has brought out, which captures all elements for a car in hatchback and suv.Overall it is an amazingly made car from Mahindra that might cause some creases in the hatchback cotegory.
