Mahindra KUV100, which has been launched in India at 4.42 lakh (ex-showroom, Pune), is a name (that like its stable-mates the TUV300 and XUV500) will take quite a lot of getting used to. The KUV nomenclature comes from Cool Utility Vehicle (yes cool with a k!) and is in line with Mahindra's obsession of forcing alphanumeric names down our throats, even when names like Scorpio and Bolero were attractive, iconic and unique! But that being said, soon we will be used to it anyway, so let me also quickly tell you that the plan from Mahindra is simple. All monocoque vehicles that share a platform with the current XUV500 in the future will carry the XUV prefix, those that share the ladder frame platform of the Scorpio will be badged TUV-something and the compact cars on the new S101 platform will be branded KUV. So now let me tell you all about the new KUV100. The car is a subcompact crossover - I guess that is how it is positioned. But look closer and you realise that the company that said it will never make cars, only UVs has made a small car! The KUV100 has entry hatchback proportions, and sits below 4 metres in length at 3675mm. It is tall though at 1655mm (inclusive of the roof rails which are available only on the top two variants). In terms of looks the KUV100 is bold and modern - though as usual Mahindra has erred on the side of overstyling than opting for the subtle route. Having said that, the KUV100 is appealing, and has much better build and metal surfacing than existing Mahindras. The Evoquesque headlamp cluster that extends all the way back over the fender and wheel arch is distinct, and also carries the car's name. The daytime running LEDs are only the preserve of the top-end K8 variant sadly.
