The car will also get additional features like LED DRLs, a piano black trim on the centre console and power and eco driving modes to name a few. It may also retain a six–seat layout and get two interior choices, very shade in lower trims and black in higher trims.

It comes mated with a 5-speed manual transmission. Improved mileage is expected offering more than 18.15 KMPL in petrol and 25.32 KMPL in diesel version.
The KUV100 NXT has been spotted a number of times wearing camouflage while on-test, giving us the hint that it’s launch is not far away. It will rival the likes of the Maruti Ignis, Hyundai Grand i10 and the Ford Figo.
