I hope they have focussed on fixing niggles and ironing out the mileage issues as well. While fixing the design is a "nice-to-have" thing, even without it, the polarizing design did have its share of fan following especially in certain parts of the country.

Mahindra should get rid of the "6th seat" at the front and provide a proper handbrake in the facelift model.

There is no middle ground for Mahindra's designs and designers. It's either a dead donkey or an outlandish bird. People are curious in the beginning for both but then they walk away and get some thing they can live with.

Finally Mahindra realized that on a small vehicle like KUV100 overdone styling, cuts and creases and the rear door handle location which limits the visibility were not the right. The car has it's advantages like long travel suspension, flat floor on the second row, armrest in both rows, good driving position and very drivable diesel engine.

KUV was a shameless copy of Ssangyong Tivoli, but to make it small and funky MnM screwed it further.

Hope they come up with some more European design.

Update from ACI on the upcoming changes in the KUV100.

Quote:
Mahindra is set to focus on improving its styling with the crossover featuring a cleaner design and a redone tailgate, a departure from the oddly proportioned current model.

What I can not understand if they are only talking about the tailgate, or more. As only that, is not going to help much. Lets see what they come up with.

Mahindra's KUV1OO face-lift makes its appearance!

At the front, the bumper gets revised air intakes and fog lamp enclosure. The chrome braces in the grille look bigger, while the pulled back headlamps that stretch to the A-Pillar now appears to extend up till the edge of the LED DRLs. The rear bumper has been tweaked with toned down creases towards the wheel arches, and the detailing of the taillamp is new.
