The Mahindra KUV100 is India's largest utility vehicle maker's third sub-4 metre after besides the Quanto and TUV300. Designed to offer 'peppy low-end performance' both in its diesel and petrol guises, it targets first-time buyers and hence the name - Kool Utility Vehicle (KUV). Interestingly, the 100 signifies its series and position in the carmaker's line-up - below Mahindra TUV300 and XUV500.
In order to lend Mahindra KUV100 an SUV-esque appeal, it gets a unique pair of head-lamps with follow-me-home lamps, LED DRLs, black plastic-cladded front bumper that houses the vertical LED fog lamps, air dam and a large sliver skid plate.
Mahindra KUV100 is offered in a total of four variants, namely, K2, K4, K6 and K8 along with '+' option that offers additional safety equipment and comfort-enhancing features.
