Mahindra KUV100 vs Maruti Swift vs Hyundai Grand i10 Interiors

You will see that the interiors of all three are contemporary in the Mahindra KUV100 vs Maruti Swift vs Hyundai Grand i10 comparison.

KUV100 Interior

(Mahindra KUV100 vs Maruti Swift vs Hyundai Grand i10)

K stands for Kool in KUV100 and Mahindra has designed the interiors ergonomically. The black and grey instrument panel is a welcome change as most of the cars today have black and beige, which suits mature car buyers. The gear knob on the centre console looks a bit odd, but is a very good placement to save out on space. The three-knobs control the air-con vents, while the handbrake is old-fashioned. This has helped to save out on space and Mahindra has done a good job by adding the third extra seat. Now, lets be honest, safety is a priority for us too, but once in a while you do require six people to be taken and that is when this comes handy. The other downside of the KUV100 is the music system, which needs to have better quality speakers to enhance the current output.

Hyundai Grand i10 Interior

(Mahindra KUV100 vs Maruti Swift vs Hyundai Grand i10)

The Grand i10 on the other hand does feel premium with the black and beige interiors along with the top notch plastics and a sophisticated instrument panel. The styling is basic and easy on your eyes. Hyundai is clearly targeting the mature audience with this hatchback. The three-spoke steering wheel comes with audio controls for music system and calling too. The Grand i10’s styling is much different from most of the competition. The round air-con vents are a refresh when it comes to the styling. The piano black finish on the gear box and the cool blue backlit interiors are soothing and aren’t harsh at night. Hyundai gets full points for the instrument panel design.

Swift Interior

(Mahindra KUV100 vs Maruti Swift vs Hyundai Grand i10)

The all-black interiors of the Swift remain our favourite. This premium hatchback is one of the highest selling vehicles and there is no rocket science to understand that. The look and feel of Swift’s cabin isn’t as good as the Grand i10, but it feels a tad better than the KUV100. The centre console looks a bit too cluttered and even the instrument cluster numbers aren’t as easy to read as the Grand i10. The Swift facelift got some additional features and that is when it got the telephone buttons on the steering wheel as an add-on. The orange lit interiors are the good too. The Swift’s ambience feels youthful and meets the needs of what a Grand i10 or even a KUV100 will need.

Winner: In interiors of Mahindra KUV100 vs Maruti Swift vs Hyundai Grand i10, the Grand i10 is the pick. In terms of interior quality look and feel, the Grand i10 excels ahead of the competition. This makes it an ideal pick for us.

Mahindra KUV100 vs Maruti Swift vs Hyundai Grand i10 Performance

Talking about the performance of Mahindra KUV100 vs Maruti Swift vs Hyundai Grand i10, these cars are quite different from each other.

KUV100 Engine

(Mahindra KUV100 vs Maruti Swift vs Hyundai Grand i10)

All three cars come in pe

trol as well as diesel engine options and are quite distinct in the way they perform. KUV100’s petrol engine has more vibration than the diesel engine, which is very surprising. The power of the KUV100 is just fine but the drivability in city needs some amount of gear shifting.  NVH levels have been very well controlled. The drivability is great and is helped by the shorter gear ratios. In-gear acceleration is amongst the best in-class. The engine is mated to a five-speed manual gearbox. The gearshifts are pretty smooth and the positioning of the lever on the dashboard centre console is quite convenient while shifting and feels much better compared to other Mahindra vehicles.

Mahindra KUV10014

Grand i10 engine

(Mahindra KUV100 vs Maruti Swift vs Hyundai Grand i10)

The petrol engine has similar power output like the Swift, but one needs to work a bit harder to extract some good performance from this engine.In terms of outright power the Grand i10 is the least powerful of three but doesn’t feel underpowered. The power delivery is linear and unlike the Swift doesn’t give a sudden rush of torque. However, the Grand i10 has quite pronounced vibrations especially at idle and the three-cylinder characteristics are evident. Its the high revs where it is not comfortable and gives a feeling of stalling and promoting an upshift.

Hyundai Grand i10 engine

Swift engine

(Mahindra KUV100 vs Maruti Swift vs Hyundai Grand i10)

The best petrol engine of the lot on the Swift, it has good power and drivability is certainly the best of all. This engine doesn’t feel out of steam in the city or even on the highway. Most of the power comes in at higher rpm, but even the low and mid-range there is sufficient pull. When it comes to diesel, the Swift has the largest diesel engine. It is tuned to offer sprightly acceleration and that is evident the moment its turbocharger kicks in at 1800rpm. There is a sudden surge of power and catapults the car in a sporty fashion.

Maruti Swift engine

In the engine of the Mahindra KUV100 vs Maruti Swift vs Hyundai Grand i10, the Swift comes out on top, overall.

Petrol Engine1.2-litre

Transmission5-speed manual/ 4-speed auto

The new Hyundai XCent 2017 comes with a 1.2-litre petrol engine. This produces about 82bhp of power and comes with five-speed manual and four-speed automatic transmission options. This is the same engine like the earlier petrol XCent. There isn’t any change on it. So, we expect the performance to remain the same. This engine is good enough for daily city driving. On the highway it is good enough for cruising comfortably at around 120 km/h

The new 1.2-litre diesel also makes its way into this car. It was earlier launched with the new Grand i10. The best bit about this engine is its refinement. It is extremely quiet and it doesn’t make much noise either. This is one of the most highly refined diesel engines in the country. The power is good enough. There isn’t any kind of turbo lag and the engine has good amount of power and torque delivery too. This comes with a five-speed manual transmission. The gearbox is easy to shift and the clutch is extremely light too. This is what makes this engine such a good bit.

The New Hyundai XCent 2017 facelift gets an all new fascia. There is a new trapezoidal grille, which is now a trademark of Hyundais. This grille now has chrome slats that makes it look cool. At the same time, this makes it look bigger. The headlamp design is the same as that on the Grand i10. This doesn’t get any change. There are daytime running LEDs also in it. The new XCent looks more stylish and the fresh look is welcome. But in real life, it looks a bit off in proportions at the front. The new fascia and rear makes it look completely different. Hyundai has done a good job to differentiate the compact sedan from its hatchback sibling.

The side profile of the New Hyundai XCent 2017 is the same. It gets a new set of alloy wheels, though. The proportions are also the same as this is a cosmetic upgrade than an all new platform.

Hyundai i20 Active offered with discount of INR 25,000

Published

Narendra Modi’s marketing campaign for Lok Sabha 2014 was revolutionary. This turned the fortunate of the party as it showcased an example of how a major turn-around could happen when a strong leader with a successful role model enters the battle of the world’s largest elections. The leader was Mr Narendra Modi and role model was the development in Gujarat. BJP won the elections with counting ally votes but the Modi effect has been so strong that even Haryana and Maharashtra elections ensured a majority for the Lotus-symbol party. The trust in the name and the brand is one of the strong reasons for this turnover that BJP that along with Shiv Sena had a 30% vote share in 2009, now got 30% alone in 2014 elections without the Sena. The trust factor helps, be it for politics, electronics and even cars. The car in question is from a brand that has being winning hearts of car buyers for the last 15 years— Hyundai. To look at the positive side, Hyundai was one of the few foreign company that introduced the latest car models in India, where all other European brands were playing safe by selling out-dated models in India in the late 1990s. The Santro and Accent became a runaway success for Hyundai and then since the introduction of the Fluidic Design, the Korean manufacturer has even captured the Elantra market busting its image as a small car manufacturer. Today, Hyundai is the second largest shareholder in Indian car market and India’s largest car exporting company. The i20 has been successful and with the same platform, Hyundai has entered the compact crossover segment. Enters, the Hyundai i20 Active. (more…)

Hyundai Grand i10 2016 – the new premium hatchback: Things were relatively simpler up until a few years ago if one wanted to buy a car. One merely had to choose based on the size of the car & one’s wallet, besides certain personal preferences & voila! They had narrowed down upon the car they should buy. Today, it is more a case of blurred lines. Car makers have pulled out all stops, merging the dividing lines between car categories. Things are so nuanced that for any given budget, one has the option of choosing between multiple categories of cars. (more…)

The Mahindra XUV 500 is also underpinned by a monocoque chassis and has the looks of a proper SUV. It is bigger in size than the Creta and also has better road presence.

The interior quality, fit and finish in the Hyundai Creta best in the segment. The space inside is decent. It hasn’t got oodles of space but isn’t cramped either, however, three adults on the rear seat can be a bit of a squeeze, the legroom is quite generous though. One may feel a bit claustrophobic at the rear due to the tapering window lines that make the rear feel smaller than it actually is.
