Tata Tiago vs Swift vs Grand i10 vs New Figo vs KUV100 – Design

There is no denying the fact the Mahindra KUV100 boasts of a unique appearance which will set it apart from the sea of cars crowding our roads today. Usual SUV traits such as a high set bonnet, body cladding, wide stance, etc. are the defining traits of the KUV100’s exteriors. Additional features such as LED DRLs, high mounted rear door handle, swept back headlamps should go down well with car buyers. The rest are all very good looking hatchbacks with no major turn offs in terms of design.

The interiors of the KUV100 are just as unconventional as the exteriors. The gear lever has been mounted on the dashboard in order to aid the unique 3+3 seating layout. In terms of quality, and fit and finish, the cabin of the Grand i10 is a notch above the rest. The Swift’s rear feels a bit cramped thanks to a rising window line and not so generous leg room.

The Tata Tiago boasts a customizable interior trim and an 8-speaker Harman audio system. The highlight of the KUV100’s features is the flexible 3+3 seating arrangement.
