Mahindra and Mahindra unveiled the KUV100 NXT days before Diwali starting at Rs 4.39 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). The launch prices are introductory for the first three months and may increase after.
On the outside, the new 2017 Mahindra KUV100 NXT will come with aggressive front grille, front and rear silver skid plates, flared wheel arches with wheel cladding, new headlamps with LED DRLs, and fog lamps with black bezels.
Since the Mahindra KUV100 NXT is a refresh model, it continues to be powered by the same 82PS 1.2-litre petrol and 76PS 1.2-litre turbocharged diesel motors.
The KU100 NXT is offered as a six-seater, unlike the pre-facelift model that was available as a five- or six-seater.
Inside the auto, the interiors have been done in all-black, seat fabric has been redone, and a new central console design. There also are redesigned tail gate, turn signals on ORVMs, roof rails, 15-inch diamond cut dual-tone alloy wheels, and double barrel clear lens tail lamps.
The new version is available in gasoline and diesel variants and has lower trim (cheaper) options as well. With two interior shades on offer, lower-spec trims are finished in grey while higher versions get an all-black interior.
Mahindra & Mahindra has added a new 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, which will offer audio and navigation support. In addition, the KUV100 NXT gets remote lock/unlock for the tailgate, power folding wing mirrors, rear parking sensors, a new multi-info display giving readouts for gearshift alert, drive modes and fuel economy. The extra features include steering-mounted controls, driver's seat height adjust, a cooled glovebox and mood lighting. The suspension now gets a longer travel rate at 150mm for the front and 200mm for the rear, and that's likely to improve ride quality.
Mahindra dealerships across India have already begun accepting bookings of the 2017Mahindra KUV100 NXT, and it had already been spotted at some Mahindra dealerships.
