Test Driving The Mahindra KUV100 In SA

On an excursion to India In May, I drove the diesel show. After 40 km on Mumbai’s parkway, it was obvious to me that the high-riding hatchback could bring a few eyebrows up in the SA traveler vehicle showcase.

My first experience of the Mahindra KUV100 back in South Africa was a ‘Nightfall Orange’ diesel display. It was fueled by a 1.2-liter turbodiesel motor fit for a humble 57kW/190Nm. They guarantee the fuel utilization is 4.4l/100km yet you won’t have the capacity to precisely tell as it doesn’t have an utilization check.


The K6+ subsidiaries or more offer a six-speaker sound framework with Bluetooth availability to the Mahindra Blue Sense application. A multi-work guiding haggle refrigerated glove compartment are additionally included.

In spite of its low strength, the three-chamber conveyed as it did in Mumbai and felt enthusiastic with heaps of torque between each of the five apparatuses.

The gearbox truly merits every one of the awards. The moving is strong and exact yet tragically the grip pedal is too wicked good on the floor. It took me a while to become acclimated to and this is maybe something Mahindra ought to rethink.

On that take note of, the pedal position of the brake and grasp are excessively near one another. On the off chance that you have little feet, you may be OK or simply given your baby a chance to drive you around.

Taking to a rock street demonstrated a worthy ride however the tallness of the 1155kg KUV100 implied the ride was somewhat uneven, particularly at speed. Fabricate quality could likewise be enhanced as I encountered wind commotion while driving on the interstate.

I wouldn’t go for the oil show despite the fact that it additionally has the 1.2-liter three-barrel motor (61kW/115Nm). It feels torpid and nothing contrasted with the diesel. In first, second and third apparatus it truly battled like the Bulls did in Super Rugby this year.

Is the KUV worth purchasing?:

Mahindra claims the KUV100 rivals the Toyota Etios Cross, Renault Sandero Stepway, Suzuki Swift, Hyundai Grand i10, Chery J2, Tata Bolt and the Ford Figo. It’s an intense solicit as most from these vehicles have incredible business esteem, mark dedication, better-saw manufacture quality and a built up merchant organize.

There is one territory the Mahindra KUV100 eclipses the rest and that is on cost. It will set you back somewhat under R150 000 for the passage level petroleum demonstrate which comes standard with aircon, electric windows, ABS and driver/traveler airbags.

I may have been to some degree hesitant of the KUV100 however toward the finish of the dispatch I had truly warmed up to the diesel demonstrate. The value, gear level and by and large driving background left a decent impression. We should trust the automaker ages like a fine wine dislike vinegar.

All in all, the diesel motor and gearbox are both more than sufficient however the greatest concerns are pedal situation, grip and wind commotion. It stays to be seen regardless of whether South Africans will be keen on the KUV100 however it’s positively worth a notice. Regardless of whether the Mahindra KUV100 isn’t exactly some tea, there is more Mahindra in transit.

*Three-year or 100 000 km guarantee on all models and a three-year or 50 000 km benefit plan on the K6+ and K8 subsidiaries (discretionary for K4+).
