The Mahindra KUV100 has been launched at Rs 4.42 lakh, ex-Pune. This small SUV comes with a new range of three-cylinder mFalcon engines developed by Mahindra. The 1.2-litre turbo diesel unit makes 77PS of power and 190Nm of torque while the petrol variant puts out 82PS of power and 115Nm of torque between 3500 and 3600rpm. Both engines are mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. The all-aluminium, fuel-injected motor offers dual-variable valve timing for the intake and exhaust. Mahindra says that the unit is very light, with less friction because it uses three cylinders instead of the conventional four. Read our first drive report here

On the outside, the Mahindra KUV100 gets LED DRLs integrated into the wraparound headlamps, a rear roof spoiler and an all-new design for the alloy wheels. While on the inside the Mahindra KUV100 gets an interesting layout for the centre console with the gear lever integrated into it. The air-conditioning controls are placed in a vertical manner which looks pretty quirky compared to the traditional horizontal layout seen on most cars. The Mahindra KUV100 is offered in seven variants with a choice of a 5- or 6-seat configuration. Here is a detailed look at the Mahindra KUV100 in images.
