The engine operates at lower revolutions for a given road speed thereby improving the reliability of the engine and delivers good mileage.

Attractive interiors that add to the styling of the vehicle include a car-like dashboard with fuel level indicators and mobile phone charging socket, dual tone high quality seats, and an integrated bumper.  The TVS King’s electric start option reduces driver’s fatigue. The vehicle has better head and legroom in the passenger compartment, while the suspension and the seat are positioned so as to optimize superior ride quality for longer duration.
