Will be powered by three-cylinder engines.

The image below gives an accurate, but early idea of what the Mahindra S101 (codename) looks like next to the Maruti Swift. When Mahindra launches the car next year, it will give indirect competition to the Swift, as the pricing of the S101 is expected in the whereabouts of INR 5 lakhs.

The sub-4 meter S101 will get a crossover-inspired design.

Measuring below 4 meters long, the S101 will have a crossover like look with an elevated seating position. To further pitch the car as a utility vehicle, engineers would give it a bench-type seating at the front which could accommodate three people (or two adults and a child).

The S101 would debut Mahindra’s new modular engine family, which has been developed by the company in-house. While the range will include 1.2-, 1.5- and 1.6-liter engines, the S101 will get two three-cylinder engines in the form of a 1.2-liter petrol and 1.2-liter diesel.

    They have not learnt much from their errors with Quanto. It
    is styling and quality at affordable price stupid! This looks like another disaster
    from Mahindra design studio.

    They spent all the money to do the front and rare end of Scorpio, and failed to do any changes on the doors and roofline. A better new modern look could have been achieved by spending as little as 5 crores(less than US$ 1 million) on a new set of dies for these. It is like penny wise pound foolish.
    Who is advising their design team? Hope it is not the dropouts from the new “IPhone 6 plus” team from Cupertino that tried to copy Koreans!
