Mahindra is working on its first ever compact Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) in the country; ardent fans have never stopped capturing interesting images of the new surprise package. This car is indeed a product of excitement since the public will desire to capture a glimpse of the first compact car by Mahindra. The S101 is likely to have classy exteriors which make it compete with its competitive counterparts of Renault Duster and Ford EcoSport. The Duster has created a stunning image in India, and if the car is likely to compete with the Duster, then it will be a sure shot winner. The pricing is consumer friendly at Rs 5 lakhs, which also brands the S101 as the most reasonably priced car in India.
Few car fans have indicated that the car design is adopted from one of the top selling models of Mahindra; the XUV500. The S101 was camouflaged to a significant extent, car enthusiasts have been able to capture certain interesting features of the car, and have announced that the car is devoid of headlamps and bumpers. The design is known to be identical to the image which portrays a trendy and classy design. The ability to identify few features of the car in spite of it being disguised is remarkable.
Some of the exciting and eye catchy features are the fitment of stop light on either ends of the tail gate, which is mounted differently on the Quanto and Scorpio which is carved on D Pillar in vertical form. The bonnet is designed in the form of clamshell. The roof appears to have more sporty flings than other Mahindra models. The S101 has a two box sculpt; the interior room appears tinier than other Mahindra models.
The car according to reports from sources might be similar to the sophisticated and fashionable car, the XUV500. This car will be rolled out in petrol and diesel engines. To complete the picture of worthy choice options, the company is likely to introduce a front wheel drive model.
The company is working on new six speed gear box in the S101; the interior space is consumer friendly that might accommodate six to eight passengers. The car will have a neatly carved two box sculpt with a below 4 meter dimension. For an interesting piece of information, Mahindra is working on new makes of front wheel drives and there will also be a sedan model along with the S101 in the future.
The S101 is likely to create a stellar image considering its stiff competitors, the two box design is a new mysterious package, and the sportier design will excite sporty car buffs. The overall design appears interesting, not to forget the reasonable price of Rs 5 lakhs. This is Mahindra’s first venture into the compact SUV segment, which makes this one of the most awaited cars, with the public attention too loud already; anyone can image the crowd gathering figures when the actual car is launched. Let’s hope the car launches soon, and would be exciting to experience the drive quality in the S101 with a unique two box design.
