Mahindra S201: Recently, Mahindra was spotted testing its latest compact SUV which is called the S201 by the company. The next-production variant of Mahindra will be produced in India. The production concept is similar to the Mahindra’s SsangYong Tivoli. The compact SUV was testing in India, known as S201. However, the company is still working on the execution of the latest S201 which is expected to completed soon. The car spotted testing includes some complete build components that the images reveal. The latest SUV is expected to be introduced later this year.
According to past reports, the latest variant will be Mahindra’s sub-4 meter SUV, so it will lock horns with the likes of Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Ford EcoSport, and Tata Nexon. While on testing the car was massively camouflaged. The semi-production variant was noticed with body panels, taillamps, ORVMs and alloy wheels. This is not the first time that this variant is spied testing. In previous spied shots, the headlamp seems identical to the Tivoli’s taillamp which looks slimmer and in horizontal arrangements including LED lights. Moreover, the car is outfitted with latest black alloy wheels and roof-mounted spoiler including combined LED brake lights.
The past spy shots suggest that the front portion of the SUV is based on Tivoli. The rear and the front portion of the SUV will get top-spec modifications which will make it more fashionable. It will include South Korean complement as well. The projector headlamps are now more revised and feature the LED daytime running lights, larger chrome grille, and a husky front bumper and some other innovative upgrades. However, we have not got any pictures or details of the interior layout. It seems that the company wants to keep the interior features as a secret. Although, the future car will be rolled out with much superior class interior and fashionable highlights.
The technical specifications are still not known, but as per some latest reports, the upcoming Mahindra S201 will be powered by a 1.2-litre G80 turbo petrol and 1.5-litre diesel engines. The company could also launch an advanced 1.6-litre diesel engine and the improved 1.5-litre petrol engine with the S201 model. The engine is expected to be combined with a 5-speed manual gearbox and maybe an AMT unit transmission. The car is now in progress, we hope that the company will soon reveal the top-specs of the secret car.
