Mahindra & Mahindra has been in full force since the success of XUV 500 and the recent launch of Scorpio. Both the SUVs have been a boon to the Mahindras. Now with the same spirits and enthusiasm they are working on a new sub 4-metre SUV with a code name of S101. This will be standing with against the Ford Ecosport. This S101 is carry forward the design from the XUV 500. The dimensions will surely take a toll in order to save some tax and be a little easy for our pockets. The spy shots aren’t too revealing but one can surely make a the overall shape. It has a good front view with a sporty roofline that slopes downwards. But this doesn’t mean it will short in headroom. The front and rear passengers both will have decent headroom for sure.
The interior hasn’t been noticed very evidently as the car Is still under testing condition but we expect that the car will be well equipped with modern aminities but one should not expect anything like the XUV as it wont be priced as high as the XUV. The standard equipment like entertainment system with Bluetooth, aux input, USB and dual airbags in the top variant is expected.
The S101 will be a 100bhp and 250Nm powered engine. This time Mahindra might also focus more the ride quality and driving dynamics for a better performance and fuel efficiency.
The S101 will be launched against the Ford Ecosport and will be also priced lesser than the ford to be in the competition. It will surely have an eye-catching price tag between 5.8- 8 lakhs. The launch is expected to be somewhere in March 2015.
