The manufacturer has still not unveiled the cars officially and we can expect the XUV100 to shed its disguised avatar soon. Moving ahead from the earlier sightings, this time, there were two test mules that seemed to be production ready. Instead of the makeshift headlamps and tail lamps on the earlier test mules, the new pictures show the new headlights, a honeycomb mesh grille, restyled alloy wheels and new tail lamps.
Our earlier spyshots have revealed that the cabin will get a bench-type front seat and will feature a centre console mounted gear stick. The car gets a tall design offering all passengers a decent amount of headroom, a high seating position. The ground clearance is also high.
The XUV100 will be powered by newly developed three-cylinder petrol and diesel engines. These engine configurations will come mated to a manual transmission sending the power to the front wheels. Mahindra might also add another variant equipped with an AMT transmission.
The Mahindra XUV100 has been spotted testing multiple times earlier with heavy camouflage. This compact SUV is expected to be based on an all-new monocoque platform that might be revealed soon officially. The styling elements will borrow traits from its elder sibling - the XUV 500. Though the car is small in size, it is expected to give an SUV-like experience and rival the Ford EcoSport. It will be placed below the new TUV300 and will mark Mahindra's entry into the rapidly expanding compact SUV segment.
