Shrawan Raja, I'm the Founder & CEO of IndianAutosBlog.com. I love teamwork and talking about cars.

The Mahindra S101 has been spotted by IndianAutosBlog.com reader Mr. Naveen Raman in Ooty, Tamil Nadu. The trials have advanced to a new stage with prototypes sporting more complete body work and features.

The S101 is Mahindra’s entry-level crossover that will take aim at the Ford EcoSport and the Maruti XA Alpha. Mahindra’s smallest offering in the personal vehicle space, as per reports, would be manufactured at its new facility in Cheyyar, Tamil Nadu in the next financial year.

The Mahindra S101 comes out next year to take on the Ford EcoSport or the upcoming Maruti XA Alpha.

The test mule has gotten new body parts such as headlights, bumpers and a complete tailgate. A mounting bracket appears to be placed at the rear, likely to carry the external spare wheel. Few other parts like the rear combination lamps are still to be seen in production form.

Like the XUV500, the headlamps are quite large, and cut into the sides of the car. Previous spyshots showed a thin line of LED infused into the base of the cluster.

The S101 would become Mahindra’s second monocoque chassis model. It is based on a newly developed platform and would get driven by a 1.2-liter three-cylinder petrol engine, besides a sub-1,500 cc diesel engine. Shown on the Quanto at the Auto Expo, an AMT option could also cascade into the smaller S101, for a better powertrain mix.

Expect the S101 on the market in 2015.
