The most anticipated car of the year which surfaced for months is finally going to be unveiled on January 15, 2016. An official teaser of the KUV was released ahead of its launch, and KUV100 is going to be the first of its kind to get launched under the fresh segment – Kool Utility Vehicle.
The teaser reveals almost all attributes of the car including the cheetah grille, LED DRLs, high ground clearance and grey body kit. It seems Bollywood actor Varun Dhawan will be the brand ambassador for the new car.
The KUV100 features new genus of engines powered by mFalcon. Named after a bird of prey, the mFALCON is a compact lightweight engine built to deliver peppy and high performance. Powering both petrol and diesel variants are the 1.2-litre three-cylinder units through a five-speed manual transmission. The petrol is good for 82bhp/114Nm of torque while the diesel produces 77bhp/190Nm of torque. The automatic transmission is slated for later. Both engines are built to deliver excellent low-end torque for the perfect SUV performance and an enjoyable drive.
The KUV100 will be positioned at the highly competitive B-segment of the Indian car market. The color options are Fiery Orange, Dazzling Silver, Pearl White, Midnight Black, Flamboyant Red, Aquamarine and Designer Grey.
