Mahindra S101 spotted testing in Chennai again

Mahindra S101 spotted testing in Chennai again

Mahindra’s upcoming new compact SUV, the S101, has been spotted testing again near Chengalpet on the outskirts of Chennai. The vehicle has been spied earlier on a number of occasions revealing some or the other detail.  

The S101 will be a sub-four-metre crossover that features a monocoque structure. From the Mahindra line-up only the XUV 500 has this structure and the S101 will be the second vehicle to get this structure. Smaller than the XUV 500, the new crossover is likely to borrow some components from its other sibling- the Quanto. The heavy camouflage hides the exterior features and the make-shift headlamps and tail lamps hint that the car is still in the intermediate stages of testing.

The S101 is expected to offer a decent amount of headroom for all passengers due to its tall design. Our earlier spy-shots have revealed that the cabin will get a bench-type front seat and will feature a centre console mounted gear stick.

Mahindra will power the S101 with a new set of engines, probably 1.2-litre petrol and diesel mills, jointly developed by Mahindra and its Korean partner SsangYong. These engines will come mated to new five- and six-speed gearboxes and power will be sent to the front wheels.

The compact SUV segment is rapidly expanding in India and Mahindra plans to foray into this segment with the launch of the S101. With Ford EcoSport as its prime rival, the manufacturer might introduce the vehicle in our country by the end of this year. It is expected to go on sale with the next-gen Bolero, codenamed U301, which is also being tested alongside.
