Since it caters to a niche segment, the Mahindra KUV100 doesn’t have any direct rival in the country. But, at this price, this mini SUV takes on the B-segment hatchbacks like Maruti Swift and Hyundai Grand i10. It might also affect sales of the Ford EcoSport. Having said that, Maruti Suzuki India (MSI) is planning to launch a new sub-4 meter compact SUV – Ignis – that will prove to be a close competitor to the Mahindra KUV100.
