Fuel Economy : 21.2 kpl

Mahindra KUV100, launched in India at a Suitable price , is a name Mini SUV will take quite a lot of getting used to. The KUV nomenclature comes from Cool Utility Vehicle 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.
Great front styling and also front 3/4th is great, but in focus of the fact that this should be a Sub- 4 Meter, rear 3/4th is rather ugly. Rear is again good. Great size makes it stand out on the roads, doesn't even lose it's precence on road with Fortuners and EcoSports nearby
Great interior styling, a proper Multi-Functional display is lacking. I loved the perfectly attractive positioning of the Gear Knob. Fit and finish is great,unlike many people's belief, it is in par with Hyundai and Maruti fitting levels
Not so powerful as I expected from a Mahindra (taking Scorpio and XUV in considerance). Gear shifting sometiomes feels rubbery especially on shifting to Reverse Gear Fuel Economy has fascinated me a LOT! Just one of the Best in Class (Even on road) unlike the Swift Dzire which promises 25+ kpl but offers less than 14 kpl on road
Suspension is great and also enhances comfort while driving, helps easily go over ditches and speedbreakers without breaking. Body roll feels a bit much sometimes (considering it's dimensions), but doesn't effect handling. It easily steers on sharp cuts, but needs us to get a bit slow in some cases
