The new spyshot reveals the design of the bumper and tailgate, and the position and possible shape of the taillight.

The S101/XUV100/CUV100 will be launched in the final part of this year, or if delayed, by the end of this fiscal year, and would be the second all-new sub-4m Mahindra product for the year.

IAB readers who have seen the car testing, say it looks more of a tall hatchback rather than a crossover SUV, with its curvy roofline, tight overhangs, short wheelbase wheelbase, and tiny wheels. Like the Renault Kwid, its SUV-ish character come from its high ground clearance, exaggerate body work and also a high Hip-Point.

The S101 is based on the second monocoque platform that Mahindra has internally developed. It will also launch new 1.2L diesel and petrol engines.

IAB reader Timothy's spyshot showed a test mule sporting the company’s distinctive six-tooth grille.

The S101 is built on a new monocoque chassis, the second from the UV major after the XUV500, and would be driven by new petrol and diesel engines displacing 1.2-liters from their three-cylinder blocks, the smallest unit the company has used for its passenger vehicle lineup. Developed in association with Ssangyong, the engines are a part of a new family, and will be paired with manual and AMT transmissions.
