An anonymous reader sent us this spyshot of the Mahindra W201 testing in Ooty, a popular hill station in Tamil Nadu. The car's being driven in all kinds of terrains and conditions over the last couple of years to ensure nothing is left to chance. The W201 will be Mahindra's first vehicle to employ unibody construction. The vehicle spied looks production ready.
According to the company the W201 will sail into the market by the end of 2011. The festive period is a good time to launch an ambitious vehicle. The prices could be around 15-18 lakh rupees. All kinds of features will be offered on the W201, as we discussed previously.
Mahindra could take the W201 (a.k.a Global SUV) to overseas markets like South Africa. With access to Ssangyong's dealer network possible after the acquisition, the Global SUV can reach far and wide outside India.
Under the hood we're expecting the 2.2-liter CRDI mHawk engine churning out more than 150bhp power and 320Nm torque.
