From what we know, both the cars will be launched in a similar price bracket (4-6.5 lakhs), competing with the Hyundai grand i10, Maruti WagonR and the likes

Mahindra KUV100 Interior and Exterior Details and Images
The Mahindra KUV100 is definitely hard to call a SUV, and is more of a muscular hatchback. The tallboy stance is definitely great and so is the front fascia, that looks similar to its elder sibling the XUV500. Wrap around headlamps are provided which get DRLs on top variants. The bonnet gets muscular character lines.
The design of the rear, while still muscular is much more hatchback inspired. A tailgate spoiler is provided which improves the aesthetics. The side is the least appealing part of the car , and the 14″ wheels leaves a huge gab between the arches. The rear door handles are placed on the c-pillar. Chrome linings are excessively used on the car, which we felt unappealing.
The Interior will get a dual tone colour scheme with piano black dashboard. Six seat layout(3+3) with seat layout, along with conventional 3+2 layout is provided. In the 3+3 layout, folding down the front middle seat will double up as a armrest, and gives the same look of a 3+2 layout. The gear lever is placed on the center console to provide more room for the passenger in middle.
