Indianautosblog managed to click two S101s running on the Chennai streets. The vehicle is likely to share its design with XUV500. The vehicle will be sold alongside the Quanto as the entry level sports utility vehicle. One of the vehicle spied sports a rear view mirror only on the driver’s side. It seems like the prototype is not close to its final development phase as the headlamp cluster is temporary arranged. At the back, the vehicle gets a horizontal tail light arrangement which too looks carelessly fixed.

Moreover, the spotted vehicle still misses out on several body equipment such as the front and rear bumper. The S101 has been based on a new monocoque platform that has been formulated to develop in conjunction with Ssangyong to develop vehicles which comes under the 4-metre mark.

If a media report to believe, Mahindra is also working on a new 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine which will power the S101 compact SUV, just like Ford EcoBoost. The sub-4 metre SUV will also get the 1.5-litre diesel engine that also powers the Quanto. This engine produces 100bhp and 240Nm of torque. It is also expected that the S101 will be a front wheel drive model, which could feature the Renault’s 1.5-litre k9k diesel engine.
