Today, Mahindra has revealed the name, features, interiors and exteriors sketches of the S201 at a gala event in Mumbai. The Mahindra S201 is named as the Mahindra XUV300. The XUV300 is based on the XUV500 based Cheetah family. The car is inspired from the international spec Ssang Yong Tivoli as well as derives styling clues from the XUV500. The most important feature of the all new XUV300 is the monocoque chasis, which is used to reduce engine noise, vibrations and ensure comfortable rides on rough roads, makes the car sturdier, balanced, durable and reduces the weight of the car. The XUV300 is expected to be priced in the range of Rs 7 – Rs 11 lakh.
The exterior of the Mahindra XUV300 has a good looking exterior. The exterior features on the XUV300 includes projector headlamps with LED daytime running lights, LED rear lamps, the company’s signature grille with the company’s logo placed at the centre and dual tone ORVM with indicator lights. The car sits on the 17 inch diamond cut alloy wheels. The new XUV300 will get a floating roof as indicated by the black coloured A, B, C pillars.
The interior of the XUV300 is seen in dual tone black and beige theme with leather seating. The touchscreen infotainment system on the cabin supports Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth connectivity and voice commands. Mahindra has equipped the new XUV300 with a host of safety features including the dual airbags, ABS with EBD, speed alerts, reverse parking sensors, seat belt reminder, ISOFIX anchorages and all four disc brakes, thus making the car comply with the new and stricter Bharat New Vehicle Safety Assessment Program [BNVSAP] norms.
The Mahindra XUV300 will be offered with both petrol and diesel powering options. The company has not yet revealed the details of the powertrain.

On the other hand, the petrol powered variant is likely to get 1.2 litre turbocharged unit, making a power of 120 bhp.
