Spied – Mahindra S101’s interior partially revealed
As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! So here I’m, petrolhead by birth, Mechanical engineer by qualification and automotive reporter by profession!
The Mahindra S101 has entered its initial testing phase and we have already brought you few spyshots.
Motor Vikatan has once again managed to catch the test mule and this time the spyshots reveal the dashboard partially but don’t get excited for it’s fully disguised, just like the exterior.
Except the instrument cluster, everything else is hidden under a thick disguise. As far as we can see there are three dials in the instrument console with the centre one being prominent. The design is simple and conventional but it’s unclear whether these instruments sport a finalized design or a makeshift design for testing.
Coming to the exterior, the S101 still continues with incomplete body parts to keep us guessing. However, the recent test mules get front bumpers, earlier missing in the first prototypes.
The compact SUV gets a slit like front grill which mimics that of the Ford EcoSport. If the test mule is anything to go by, the lower air dam sports a twin port design. The headlamp design has a semicircular profile in its lower part but again we are not sure whether its a decoy or the original design.
The Mahindra S101 will be a sub four metre SUV which would have petrol and diesel motors that comply with the Indian government’s sub four metre rule. The car is still in early stages of its development process and hence is still sometime away from hitting the road.
The SUV will pickup a fight with the Ford EcoSport and the upcoming Hyundai mini SUV.
