From the latest spy shots which have emerged, we can clearly see S101’s headlights, which are very similarly styled to that of Mahindra XUV500. This is the first time that S101 is seen with headlight cluster which seems to be the one which will make it to the production variant. It also features LED DRLs, probably benchmarking the existing Ford EcoSport, which too is now available with LED DRLs as accessory. Though, the rear lamps of S101 are still the same which were seen on earlier spy images of S101.
Mahindra S101 is being built on a new platform which will be powered by newly developed 1.2l petrol and 1.5l diesel engine options. Once launched, it will become the smallest utility vehicle Mahindra will ever have offered. Mahindra S101 will be a sub 4 meter SUV. It will be priced aggressively, probably even cheaper than Ford EcoSport which currently retails at about Rs 6 lakhs.
Demand for sub 4m compact SUVs is on the rise, not only in India, but globally. It won’t come as a surprise if the S101 is exported to markets in Europe, Africa and the US, where Mahindra already has footprint.
