Indian automaker Mahindra and Mahindra will launch the KUV100 NXT Edition in India soon this month as the small SUV has started arriving at dealerships across India. The Mahindra KUV100 NXT Edition has recently been spotted at a dealership and seems like the KUV 100 hosts a few cosmetic enhancement. However, the KUV100 NXT Edition will be powered by the same 1.2 litre petrol and a 1.2 litre diesel engine options paired to a 5-speed manual gearbox.
The overall design and styling of the KUV100 NXT Edition remains unchanged, but will get cosmetic changes at the exterior such as updated front bumper, a plastic cladding around the fog lamps, faux skid plate finished in brushed aluminium at both ends. The rear, on the other hand, gets revised tail lamps with chrome surrounds and a revised bumper. The car manufacturer has also equipped the car with revised headlamps, grille similar to the Mahindra XUV500 and new gloss black and chrome finished 15-inch diamond cut alloy wheels. It is also said that the company has also increased the length of the car from 3,675 mm to 3700 mm.
The cabin of the KUV100 NXT Edition features the almost similar equipment as the standard model. It gets the same 6-seat layout, auto climate control, multi-function steering wheel and height adjustable driver seat. The higher versions feature an all-black interior and brushed silver inserts, while the lower ones get a grey interior theme. The company has also equipped the car with a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system on the top variant that supports navigation, while the Android Auto is being missed out. The company is also expected to offer the KUV 100 NXT Edition with dual-front airbags as standard.
With the addition of new features, it is expected that Mahindra will price the new KUV 100 NXT Edition slightly premium than the standard model. The car will continue to rival against the likes of the Honda WR-V and the Hyundai i20 Active in the segment.
