The all new Mahindra S201 has been scheduled to launch in India in 2019. So the happy day is not that far when Mahindra and Mahindra unleash the much awaited and desired compact SUV, the S201.
The car is to be rechristened the Mahindra XUV300 or the Mahindra Inferno and will be expected to rival against the likes of Tata Nexon, Ford EcoSport and MarutiVitaraBrezza.
This car is going to be Mahindra and Mahindra’s first ever to use the SsangYong’s X100 platform for its design. It is to be a 7 seater and is supposed to have the price range of that of the Hyundai Creta and the Renault Captur/Duster.
Some of the other key features of the car would include – XUV500inspired front grille, Sculpted bonnet, Sweptback headlamps, LED daytime running lamps, Fog lamps with chrome surround, Integrated roof spoiler, LED tail lamps, Touchscreen infotainment system with smartphone connectivity, Multi-functional steering wheel, Automatic climate control, Leather upholstery, Electrically adjustable driver’s seat, Sunroof, Keyless entry, Reversing camera and Seven airbags among others.
The launch of the car will not take place until late 2019. The expected price of the car would be 9 lacs for the base model and 13 lacs for the top spec variant. So the price range is a pocket-friendly one with respect to an SUV.
The car will get a number of external curves and creases on its exterior giving it a more sporty look. There will be fog lights, chrome surround, a new bumper and wide air intakes.
A newly styled grille on the front fascia enhances the look of the car further. The wheels are made of alloy, diamond cut and double spoke. There is also an integrated roof spoiler with a stop lamp along with LED tail lamps, fog lamps and a rugged bumper.
Apart from comfortable seats, the car’s interior features state of the art infotainment system with a 7-inch touchscreen. It has smartphone connectivity such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It also has a navigation system and works as a display for a reverse parking camera.
The car comes with a dual toned dashboard having a classical mix of black and beige. There is the presence of a multi-functional steering wheel, automatic climate control, leather upholstery, electrically adjustable driver’s seat, keyless entry and reversing camera. All these are provided to ensure absolute comfort of the driver as well as the other riders of the car.
The safety features of the car include ABS and EBD along with 7 airbags.
The diesel power pack is a 1.5L mHawk100 engine with a maximum power output of 100 bhp and a peak torque of 240 Nm coupled to a 5 speed MT and an AT. The petrol engine is a 1.2L 3 cylindered turbocharged engine with a whopping power generation of 140 bhp coupled to a 5 speed MT and a 6 speed AT gearboxes.
The SsangYong X100 platform that the car is built on underpins the Ssangyong Tivoli crossover but the S201 will be markedly different from the Tivoli crossover in terms of exterior and interior design and styling.
