Mahindra was the first company to enter in the Micro-SUV segment with the KUV100. However, after the launch of the Maruti Ignis, sales of KUV decreased even further. Now, if speculations are to be believed then the decreasing sales have forced the Mahindra to start working on a facelift for its Micro-SUV.
The new Mahindra KUV100 facelift is expected to launch by this year’s festive season. Prices are expected to be almost same.

There is huge probability that the KUV100 facelift will have the same three-pot petrol and diesel engines. One of the biggest issues with the KUV100 center around low refinement and high NVH. The manufacturer could improve these motors in order to rectify the problems. The car is also expected to get an AMT.
