Mahindra was the first mover in the Micro-SUV segment with the KUV100. However, the introduction of the Maruti Ignis left a huge dent on the already mediocre sales performance of the KUV. Now, speculations are rife that the dwindling sales have forced the manufacturer to start working on a facelift for its Micro-SUV. This news coincides with the reports of a new XUV500 that will come out later this year. The new Mahindra KUV100 facelift should launch by this year’s festive season. Prices are expected to remain largely unchanged. Here’s a lowdown on new 2017 Mahindra KUV100 launch date, price and other details.
New 2017 Mahindra KUV100 Facelift Launch Date
|Model Name||Launch Date (expected)|
|New 2017 Mahindra KUV100||October 2017|
The manufacturer is yet to reveal the new 2017 Mahindra KUV100 launch date. However, this car should be out in showrooms by this year’s festive season. M&M could be looking to cash in on increased sales during this period.
New 2017 Mahindra KUV100 Facelift Price
|Model Name||Ex-Showroom Price (est.)|
|Minimum Price||Rs. 4.5 lakh|
|Maximum Price||Rs. 7.5 lakh|
The new KUV100 has to contend with the Maruti Suzuki Ignis. Hence, its pricing will be crucial to its success. Mahindra can also throw in a few additions such as an automatic gearbox (an AMT, perhaps) to even the playing field. Expect prices to start at Rs 4.5 lakh. Also, the top-end model should cost no more than Rs 7.5 lakh.
New 2017 Mahindra KUV100 Facelift Specifications
|Engine Type/ Displacement||1.2-litre, 3-cylinder Petrol/1.2-litre, 3-cylinder, Turbo Diesel|
|Transmission (Gearbox)||5-speed Manual/AMT|
There are good chances that the KUV100 facelift will retain the three-pot Petrol and Diesel engines that are available on the current model. One of the biggest complaints with the KUV100 center around low refinement and high NVH. The manufacturer could tweak these motors in order to address the issues. The car is also likely to get an AMT.
New 2017 Mahindra KUV100 Facelift Mileage
There won’t be a significant change in the mileage. Currently, these 1.2-litre engines offer a claimed mileage of 18.15 KMPL (Petrol) and 25.32 KMPL (Diesel).
