Will go on sale in FY2019 and compete with the Hyundai Creta.
As we have known since last year, Mahindra is developing a new B-SUV based on the SsangYong Tivoli's X100 platform. This model, which goes by the codename 'Mahindra S201', will have an exterior and interior styling different from the SsangYong offering, says an Autocar India report.
The Mahindra S201 will arrive in India as the third monocoque platform-based passenger vehicle from the company after the Mahindra XUV500 and the Mahindra KUV100. Mahindra and Pininfarina could collaborate for the visual differentiation to make the S201 unique and give it the family design traits.
The Mahindra S201 will have a length exceeding four metres. It is expected to have premium features like dual-zone climate control, seven airbags, leather interior, ESP system and more that would help its case in positioning it as an upmarket model competing with the Hyundai Creta and even the Renault Captur arriving this year.
