Now, the production ready model has spotted while testing. This new sub-4m compact SUV will expect to launched in India end of this year or early next year. Mahindra also going to launch the another Mahindra branded Ssangyong model, the Rexton on coming November 19.
This new sub-4m compact SUV will be a third sub-4 metre product after the TUV300 and Nuvosport. This model have lot of changes compared to Ssangyong Tivoli. And, it will expect to get LED DRL, projector head lamps, ABS with EBD and etc,.
Mechanically, the S201 is most likely to get both petrol and diesel engines. We expect the same 1.5-litre turbo engine from the Marazzo which produces 121bhp/300Nm as diesel engine and 1.2-litre or 1.5-liter turbo petrol engine. This model will give tough competetion to the sub-4m SUV's likes of Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Ford EcoSport, Honda WR-V and Tata Nexon.
