The Mahindra S101 is expected to be powered by three-cylinder petrol and diesel engines.

It was recently reported that the S101 is being developed with the Maruti Wagon R as the chief rival, according to senior executives of two Tier I component suppliers. However, the S101 is likely to sport a bench type seat up front.

The diesel version would most likely be driven by the TUV300’s new mHawk 80 motor with a two-stage turbocharger, that is capable of producing 84 bhp at 3,750 rpm and 230 Nm between 1,500-2,250 rpm. The transmission choices on the S101 would include a 5-speed manual and possibly a 5-speed AMT system, which will send power to the front wheels.
