NEW DELHI: We are just 10 days away from what is a highly anticipated launch from Mahindra & Mahindra of KUV100, where ‘KUV’ stands for ‘Kool Utility Vehicle.’
While Mahindra calls it a compact SUV, it is expected to compete with the heavyweights in the hatchback segment. This would be only the second product ever in the Mahindra line-up to have a monocoque chassis, the first one being the XUV500.
While XUV500 has proper SUV credentials, we expect KUV100 to be more tuned towards taming the concrete jungles. The first look, however, gives off a completely different impression. While we have seen Renault Kwid play with the muscled look, Mahindra KUV100 takes the beefy looks in the segment to a different level altogether.
