The lack of an AMT variant was rather disheartening for the small percentage of the customers looking for an automatic transmission option.

Earlier one may ignore it for a dirty white KUV 100 Nxt, a closer look would reveal a white camouflage on the car. A look at the interior reveals a rather quirky gear lever placed on the dash. One can see the new automatic transmission, which appears similar to that of the AMT gearbox earlier seen on the TUV 300. As per the sounds heard during the mule’s start up, it must have been a diesel engine.

The test mule was seen with a 6 seater configuration with the front centre armrest down.
