Mahindra’s sub-Quanto SUV, S101 spy shots


Mahindra compact SUV S101 has been spotted once again. This time, it is being tested in in Chandigarh. Codenamed S101 as of now, this new Mahindra SUV will compete with the likes of Ford EcoSport in the growing compact SUV segment of the Indian auto industry.

Built on a monocoque chassis and likely to come in with various engine options, Mahindra S101 was seen in a heavily camouflaged state while on test and hence not many details were apparent. Smaller than Quanto, the new S101 might share a number of components with the Quanto, but unlike the Quanto, it is not as tall.

Expect S101 to receive a turbocharged 1.2 liter or 1.4 liter petrol engine while its diesel variant will be a smaller displacement version of engines seen on board the larger Mahindra SUVs.

Launch is expected to take place in 2015.
