The higher versions are expected to get an all-black theme and silver inserts, while the lower variants will feature grey interiors. The company will also equip the car with a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with navigation, while the Android Auto is likely to be missed out. The safety equipment will include dual-front airbags as standard. It is also expected that with the addition of new features on the Mahindra KUV100, the car manufacturer will slightly increase prices of the car.
