Default Re: Mahindra unveils KUV100 compact SUV. EDIT: Now launched at Rs. 4.42 lakh (ex-Pune)

Seems KUV100 is doing pretty decent numbers. But i havent seen Mahindra confirming the total bookings that it had received.

S105 is in progress. It was mentioned in below article that Mahindra plans to increase the size as well. We need to wait to see whether this is really going to be out or not.

Spotted this next to ITC Windsor around 1 in the afternoon. I am positive that it is a KUV100 unfortunately this was the only image I was able to capture as I was driving and the roads were opening up and I was in a bit of a hurry. What could Mahindra be testing now?

Is this the s105 version they are planning for export. I am seeing the kuv100 test vehicles even now in chennai doing routine testing without camouflage. Since this is under sheets this should be different externally as well, good chances for it being S105

Economic Times reports that KUV100 received over 21,000 bookings. It has been confirmed by officials of M&M.

"Since its launch last month, the KUV100 has been received well in the market. We have crossed 21,000 bookings and 1.75 lakh inquiries," M&M President & Chief Executive (Automotive) Pravin Shah told PTI.

Looks like a decent start for KUV.

I doubt it would only be an AMT - must have some external changes to justify the camouflage. Otherwise the camouflage is the surest way to draw attention to the vehicle! No one would notice an AMT from the outside unless prominently badged.

If i am not wrong, they had done the same thing before TUV AMT. May be they want to keep people interested in whats new in KUV? Its quite unlikely that Mahindra would reduce the external cosmetic effects.

Let's play a game of spot the differences.

Firstly is the 2 door version a test/production version or a photoshop ?

If so then the differences are -

1. 4 doors vs 2 doors
2. Smallish cladding vs Bigger cladding
3. Bigger wheels
4. Rear end sheet metal difference
5. New headlight assembly

Whatever it is, it is looking so much better in 2-door version.

MMM.. for me the 2 door version looks very bland with plain side. for me the added lines and wrap around headlamps are a sure winner . I love those. Only shortcoming i see in KUV is the wheel size. It should have been 15 inches with wide tyre.

5. New headlight assembly
This car was created in Photoshop .

In addition to the points you mentioned, the car has:
1. A raised bonnet
2. Zero cuts and creases
3. Bigger front doors (for easier access to the rear )
4. Lowered door handles
5. Black C-pillar
6. New tail lights & tailgate
7. Larger rear windscreen
8. Larger roof spoiler

Drove my brother's newly acquired KUV K4 Diesel(5 Seater) for a fair bit yesterday and here are my views, without any intentional offence to any one.

1. Loved the easy power delivery in city and heavy traffic conditions.
2. Suspension appeared to be a bit on the firmer side. Though big potholes and undulations was easily making it bumpy and unsettled.
3. Felt like a heavier version of Wagon-R. Body roll was evident.
4. AC was a chiller, noiseless operation too.
5. High dash and hood makes life hard for smaller and newer drivers.
6. Loved the gear lever position. An armrest would have made things easier.
7. Car looks much better in person than in pictures.


Bad things
1. Lots of rattles and squeaks in an unopened(ICE yet to be installed) and 600kms driven car
2. LHS ORVM internal adjust lever wasn't functioning while the RHS mirror fell off when I crossed a speed breaker with some speed.
3. Yet to digest its looks.
