Could be named Mahindra XUV100/CUV100.
Courtesy of Motortrend India, new spyshots of the Mahindra S101's (codename) interior have surfaced online, giving an idea as to what we could expect from Mahindra's second monocoque product.
Spyshots reveal a dual tone beige/black interior that looks upmarket and modern thanks to the generous silver garnish around the center console, steering wheel spoke, instrument binnacle, and surrounding the HVAC vents. The center console features piano black trim, chrome ringed dials arranged on one side to leave space for the gear lever, and an infotainment system with a small touchscreen display.
The Mahindra S101 is a "6-seater", where the front row comes with a foldable central seat, which explains the position of the gear lever. Judging by a spyshot of the second row, it could have tight legroom for tall adults.
Under the hood, the Mahindra S101 will pack a new range petrol and diesel engines displacing 1.2-liters from three-cylinder blocks, paired with manual and AMT transmissions. Co-developed with Ssangyong, It will be the smallest engine range offered by the company.
The Mahindra S101 could become official (with a different name) by the end of this calendar year or this fiscal year.
