Hi there Yuvi nice post looks like there is a new trend in Indian cars

Points i like

> Cheaper
> Compact
> Fuel efficient

Facts to consider

I apperitiate that Indian car makers are considering the concept of a better design on a compact silhouette but when the compactness and the process of making cheaper cars that look huge goes out of hand it leads to a complete disaster giving rise to bad looking mini/micro SUV's.Lets just hope this doesn't become another Quanto or even in that case the TUV 300 may also be considered as a car that lacks design.

But worry not mates as Mahindra has purchased Pininfarina, A firm that designs cars for Ferrari, there is a ray of hope that Mahindra's cars will have ground breaking designs in the near future.

Here are some more pics of the KUV 100:
