Upcoming Mahindra S201

Mahindra S201
March 2019 Expected Launch
7 - 11 Lakhs Expected Price

Mahindra will be launching third sub-four metre SUV in India soon, based on the Ssangyong Tivoli. Codenamed the S201, it will come as a rival to the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Ford EcoSport, Honda WR-V and Tata Nexon when it arrives early next year. This S201 may or may not carry an alphanumeric name as was seen in the new Mahindra Alturas G4. It will be sold alongside the TUV300 as a part of Mahindra’s collective volumes game. Prices are expected to be around Rs 7-10 lakhs.

As compared to Tivoli’s styling, the production spec model of the S201 will carry a similar headlamp design with LED DRL eyebrows and projector units. But the grille will get Mahindra’s toothy design iteration with a revised bumper rounding off the fascia. Being a crossover, it will get faux bash plate both fore and aft and body cladding all around along with roof rails to add a brawny appeal to it.  The most substantial change will come at the rear, where the wrap-around tail lamps of the Tivoli will be replaced by sleek designed taillights in the S201. The C-pillar will get a floating effect similar to the Korean counterpart, but the rear overhang will be reduced to keep the S201 under four metre in length. The new alloy wheels seen on the test mule are expected to be production ready.

On the inside, the S201 will take its cues from the Tivoli. There will be a dual tone cabin with black and beige interiors and ample amount of chrome and glossy plastics. The upright centre console will have an integrated touchscreen infotainment system similar to ones seen on other Mahindra products. Feature-wise, the S201 will be loaded with all the bells and whistles expected of its segment. So we may  see climate control, smartphone connectivity, dual front USB ports, height adjustment for the driver’s seat, standard airbags and ABS, along with a plethora of practical storage spaces all around.

As far as the powertrain of the five-seater is concerned, the S201 is most likely to get both petrol and diesel engines. We expect the same 1.5-litre turbodiesel engine from the Marazzo which produces 121bhp/300Nm to be joined by a 1.2-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine. Both the petrol and diesel engines of the Mahindra S201 are expected to offer manual and AMT transmission options.
