A new prototype of Mahindra's S101 mini-SUV has been snapped undergoing tests in the country, suggesting that the upcoming SUV from the home-grown manufacturer could get Chevrolet Beat-like rear door handles.
Snapped by Team BHP, the latest test mule of Mahindra S101 shows a rear door design, which is similar to the once in Chevy Beat. Chevrolet Beat door handles are located near the rear-windows. The spotted test mule is believed to be the base variant of S101 and the model also shows the production-ready wraparound tail lamps.
For the uninitiated, Mahindra S1010, which is also called KUV100 and XUV100, is based on an all-new monocoque platform. The model, which is expected to make its market debut latest this year, will be pitted against Maruti Suzuki wagon R in India and is likely to get a price tag around Rs 4 lakh.
Caught on camera countless times, Mahindra S101 is expected to get a 3+3 seating configuration with bench-type seat in the front. Under the hood, S101 is expected to include 1.2 diesel and petrol mills. While the petrol mill of the Mahindra S101 is likely to be an all-new engine developed by the company; the diesel mill could be the watered-down version of 1.5-litre mHawk engine.
Rumours are rife that the S101 will also get AMT variant, however, the interior picture of S101 has shown manual gearbox.
