Mahindra S101 Compact Crossover SUV spied testing in Chennai
Mahindra S101 (codename) compact SUV is spied testing in Chennai recently, thanks to avid RushLane reader Venkat for sending us spy shots. The Ford EcoSport and upcoming Volkswagen Taigun rival is expected to launch in 2015.
Mahindra is working with SsangYong team to develop 6 new engines. Mahindra S101 will use a 1.2 litre three cylinder petrol engine which would produce around 85 PS maximum power. Diesel variant would use a sub 1.5 litre mill producing around 90 PS max. power.
Earlier spy shots of this sub-4 metre mini SUV revealed interiors, which showed dashboard mounted gear lever and steering wheel design bearing resemblance to XUV 500’s. Venkat managed to take a peek and notice that Mahindra S101’s instrument cluster was similar to the one in Mahindra Scorpio VLX, with an illuminated LCD display between speedo and tachometer dials.
Price of Mahindra S101 can be expected to be similar to that of premium hatchbacks, in the range of Rs. 5.0 lakhs to Rs. 7.5 lakhs.
