Codenamed Mahindra S201, the upcoming SUV will be built on the SsangYong Motor’s X100 platform which is the same that underpins the Tivoli. Being a more up-market product than Mahindra’s other compact SUVs, the S101 will take on the likes of Hyundai Creta and Renault Duster. The report further claims that the new Mahindra compact SUV will hit Indian shores in 2018.

Mahindra & Mahindra is in process to buy the licensing right for the Ssangyong’s X100 platform. Though Mahindra owns SsangYong, the company will have to get a go ahead of the independent directors due to the related-party transaction. While the upcoming Mahindra S201 will share its paltform and other components with the Tivoli, the design of the vehicle could be completely new. And like other new-age Mahindra cars, the company will take design inputs from Pininfarina – an famous Italian car design house owned by M&M.

Likely to be ready by 2018, the new engine will be used for the products of both the brands. As far as the diesel engine is concerned, the company has an option to use the mHAWK 100 which also does duty in the NuvoSport and TUV300.

Besides the Mahindra S101, the company is also working on petrol versions of Scorpio and XUV500 and a new flagship model based on the XUV500 Aero concept.
