The S101 gets a multifunction steering wheel.

Seen inside is a 3-spoke steering wheel with integrated controls for the music system, an instrument cluster (which seems to get the dial-inside-dial theme like the XUV500), and a multi-information display for readouts like the tripmeter, fuel efficiency etc.

The central AC vents get a rectangular shape while the ones on the side sport a pentagon-like design. As revealer earlier, the gearlever of the S101 is integrated with the dashboard (much like the Datsun Go), and this has allowed for a bench-type seat at the front, again a la Datsun Go.

The sub-4 meter S101 is based on a new monocoque platform.

Apart from accommodating the gearlever, the center console also houses a music system and controls for the AC system, which could be an automatic climate control system in case of the top-end variant.

  1. Dr. Nayak says:

    If the level of input from the Korean company is high then lookout for a disaster in crash testing. This product is likely to get 0/5 rating based on the front seat design with space for 3 adults as the air bags will not have proper position along with the seat belts and head restraint. This type of design is not suitable for modern car/SUV design and only suitable for underdeveloped countries with no standards. With new standards coming up in 2015 this SUV will require extensive modifications to get a 5 star rating. Look for new intro date on this, if they have to go through the new testing norms.
