The Mahindra S101 continues to make news with a new batch of spy shots that has emerged on the cyber space. The pics that you see on these pages are thanks to Motor Vikatan reader B. Jayavel.
The latest batch of Mahindra S101 spy shots reveals a fair bit about the upcoming compact crossover and brings to light some of the lesser known details of the car.
On careful observation of the first pic, it can be made out that the S101 is towing the Mahindra Genio. While Mahindra S101 owners might never need to use their car to tow a pick-up truck, this pic seems to be of the S101’s towing-test. It is certainly not the first time that a car maker is conducting towing-tests for its all new vehicle.
Unlike what was being speculated earlier, the Mahindra S101 would not be powered by the Quanto’s 1.5-liter 3 cylinder diesel engine. Instead, powering the S101 could be the upcoming range of Mahindra small engines.
We won’t be too surprised to see S101 being powered by a low capacity-high power petrol/diesel engine.
Thanks to the new set of pics, we can also catch a glimpse of S101’s bumper and headlights.
The Mahindra S101′s front bumper has a twin air dam layout and the front grill gets a honeycomb treatment.
The S101 would be launched in the fast heating up compact crossover segment of Indian car market sometime in late 2014 and we there are good chances of the S101 bettering the already competitive price tag of the Ford EcoSport.
