Ignis Vs KUV 100
Mahindra KUV 100 is one of its kind compact SUV available in Indian Market. With launch of Maruti Suzuki Ignis it has found its new competition. According to experts of the car Industry there is a clear cut competition between KUV 100 and Ignis.
Mahindra KUV 100 has not been a very successful crossover with only 1953 units sold in Dec 2016. With lauch of Ignis in Jan 2017 this number will definitely take a dip.
Ignis is better than KUV in many aspects starting from better Exterior and Interior looks to low cost maintenance and features. So I would definitely suggest that Maruti Suzuki Ignis is a better choice.
Let us compare Ignis and KUV:
Though Look and feel is a matter of personal experience everyone should agree that the contemporary design of Ignis is more soothing as compared to odd looking Mahindra KUV 100.
Besides Ignis is available in dual tone colors for zeta and alpha models so it looks much more sportier than KUV.
Ignis is one the cars with Standard Safety features like ABS (Anti Lock Braking System), EBD (Electronic Brake Force Distribution) and Dual Air Bag (Driver and Co-Driver) standard across all the models. So even if you purchase base model of Ignis i.e sigma you will have all the standard safety features. So no extra cost for safety.
Where as in KUV 100 you pay extra for safety features for example the major difference between top model is security features, and top model costs almost 80 thousand costlier.
So, if you one concerned about safety of yourself and your loved one and tight in budget, Ignis is better option.

Tried and Tested Engine
There is a common suggestion that follows launch of a new car i.e look for reviews, check how the engine works etc. You need not to worry about it’s as it have same engine 1.2 liter engine made by fiat which is used in swift dzire and Baleno.
The engine of Mahindra KUV is equally good and both the cars have 1.2 liter engine offering equal power and pickup.
The dual tone exterior of Zeta and Alpha model is complemented by dual tone interiors. This makes Ignis a better looking car. The plastic used is of better quality and seats are comfortable.
Leg room and head room is sufficient in both KUV 100 and Ignis. But the Six seater KUV makes front seat not so comfortable. Both the cars are good in terms of practicality.
Ignis is equipped with 7 inch display with apple car play. This will serve dual purpose of stereo and navigation. The dual tone dashboard of Ignis looks better than KUV.
The boot space of Ignis is 260 liter which is not so great but compared to 243 liter boot of Mahindra KUV it starts looking better. This is the segment where both cars can improve. The boot space can be increased by folding the rears seats.
Undoubtedly Ignis is a smarter choice over KUV 100. It is better in any area you talk about. So don’t be a fool and buy Maruti Suzuki Ignis.
