Recent spyshots have shown the Mahindra S101 (what would be called the Mahindra XUV100 reportedly) with a chrome-embellished 6-point grille, and Indian Autos Blog’s artist, Shoeb Kalania, has incorporated the new grille into his earlier rendering of the S101.

The XUV100 will be the second monocoque product from Mahindra.

The XUV100 will be based on an all-new monocoque front wheel drive platform, and is expected to launch this financial year. It will be powered by three-cylinder petrol and diesel engines paired to a 5-speed manual or automated manual transmission (AMT). The petrol engine, a 1.2-liter unit, will have its debut on the XUV100. The diesel variant on the other hand, could source the mHawk 80 1.5-liter engine from the TUV300.

According to recent reports, the XUV100 will target the Maruti Wagon R primarily, which sells roughly 14,100 units each month. Reports are also suggestive that the XUV100 will have a starting price of INR 4 lakhs, ex-Showroom.
