Mahindra is working on a small SUV codenamed ‘Mahindra S201’ in India. As the SUV's local testing continues, a new batch of its spy shots has surfaced online, courtesy Rushlane reader Laxman.

The Mahindra S201 will have 5- and 7-seat versions, with the former arriving first.

The Mahindra S201 is underpinned by the SsangYong Tivoli’s X100 platform. Mahindra is reportedly working on two versions of this model, one having a sub-4 metre body to rival the Maruti Vitara Brezza, Ford EcoSport and Tata Nexon and the other with a bigger body that accommodates extra seats at the back. The test mule in the spy shots is the 5-seat, sub-4 metre version which arrives first.

Mahindra will offer the Mahindra S201 with a 1.2-litre GDi turbocharged petrol engine and a 1.5-litre turbocharged diesel engine. This will apply to both versions. The latter may not have any direct competition, but Mahindra is expected to position it as a premium SUV competing with the likes of Hyundai Creta, Nissan Kicks and the Renault Captur.
