The other powertrain of choice is the 77hp, 1.2-litre diesel engine that’s shared with the standard car.
The KUV100 Trip is the pre-facelift E2 version of the hatchback and comes with air-conditioning, power steering and internally adjustable rear-view mirrors. You also get ABS as standard and the car is also fitted with an 80kph speed limiter, as per government regulations. The petrol-CNG Trip is on offer in five- and six-seat forms and you can get the diesel only in six-seat form.
Mahindra is also offering annual maintenance contracts which costs around Rs 0.35-0.40 per kilometre, and you can also upgrade the standard warranty to five years.
