The company claims to have improved engine damping and Noise, vibration, and harshness levels.

Rajan Wadhera, president, Automotive Sector, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd, said, "Today's evolving customer aspirations demand more in terms of premiums, style and hi-tech features and the KUV100 NXT is a true reflection of that".

The KUV100 NXT start at Rs 4.39 lakh (ex-showroom New Delhi) for the K2 variant.

The KUV100 NXT is M&M's gambit to arrest and reverse its falling market share in a segment it has long dominated.

Previously, the Mahindra KUV100 came in four primary variants - K2, K4, K6 and K8, among these the K2, K4 and K6 variants came with a "+" option, which came with dual airbags and a couple of additional comfort features. Mahindra seems to have added an element of newness to it with features like a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system.

It is the first time that Mahindra has come up with a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system loaded with GPS navigation with maps from MapmyIndia on the top-spec K8 variant. Mahindra has worked upon the dashboard of the new KUV100 NXT, which now looks a lot nicer compared to the previous one. Also standard now is the 6-seater configuration, with the 5-seater becoming an option.

Since the Mahindra KUV100 NXT is a refresh model, it continues to be powered by the same 82PS 1.2-litre petrol and 76PS 1.2-litre turbocharged diesel motors. Both the ORVMs and the tailgate latch is now electrically operable and you also get a new driver information system with voice alerts. Both the engines come coupled with a five-speed manual transmission.

On the exterior, the 2017 Mahindra KUV100 receives a new, larger chrome front grille, clear lens taillamps, new bumper design, thicker black plastic cladding along the bottom edge of the vehicle as well as the wheel arches.
