Mahindra KUV100 NXT is their answer to the rivals and they even give the flexibility of a 6-seater variant. As you would expect, it has an SUV-like stance and looks striking from the exterior. It is imperative that Mahindra broaden its scope to other segments and focus on dishing out quality products in every segment.

Mahindra KUV100 NXT is priced a bit on the higher side when compared with its rivals. The introductory price could have been a bit lower and so could have been the price for the top variant.
