At Mahindra, we’ve always known that our vehicles are exceptionally fuel efficient, but it has now once more been confirmed by the Cars.co.za 2021 roundup of the most fuel efficient budget cars in South Africa! In fact, not one but two Mahindra models made the grade. That’s right – the Mahindra KUV100 and XUV300 both made the grade.
One of the simplest ways to keep your running costs low is to choose a less thirsty vehicle. That’s just simple math. However, in certain cases, this might also mean you have to sacrifice design and functionality. Fortunately, this is not the case when you choose to invest in one of these two Mahindra models.
The Striking Mahindra XUV300
The stylish Mahindra XUV300 is a compact crossover, and one of those multi-faceted vehicles that will always stand out on the road. So, even though the Mahindra XUV300 1.5TD W4/W6 comes in at 5.0 L/100km while delivering 86 kW and 300 Nm it will also elicit a little bit of envy from other motorists. Go on, you’ve got to admit it’s nice when your vehicle makes those heads turn…
PS! We have to mention that the Mahindra XUV300 1.5TD W4/W6 is the only diesel variant that made it onto the coveted Cars.co.za fuel-efficient budget cars list!
The Ultra Cool Mahindra KUV100
Cool has never been quite as cool as it manifests in the Mahindra KUV100. This game-changing SUV stands head and shoulders above its competitors (quite literally – it’s tall and wide!), and is available in three exciting trim levels. Not to mention the fuel efficiency of course. Cars.co.za referenced the Mahindra KUV100 Nxt 1.2 D75 K6+/K8 in particular. This model operates 4.3L/100 km thanks to a 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder petrol engine that pushes out 61 kW and 115 Nm of torque.
Now you know! So, if you want to keep your home- or business budget in check in the face of rising fuel prices and a still unstable economy, consider the Mahindra KUV100 and XUV300.
