It's about eight months since we bought the new Mahindra KUV100 (Young SUV) and we have been running around with it in Bengaluru City and outside the city. The vehicle is comfortable and majestic to drive. Though I was apprehensive about the low mileage in the beginning, after the first service, it has improved slightly.
