Mahindra is preparing to launch two all-new vehicles in the Indian market. Playing aggressive in the market, the Indian car manufacturer is planning to launch the S201 sub-4-meter compact SUV and the U321 MPV later this year, among other new models. However, the S201 and U321 have been caught testing the most in recent times. Here is another video showing the upcoming cars in different versions testing in the Mumbai-Goa stretch.
The video shows the pothole-filled roads and the test cars moving ahead one after the other. Both cars seem to be closer to the production version as they are scheduled to be launched later this year and the production is expected to start soon. It seems like both are in their final testing phases now.
The video of the U321 reveals that the top-end version of the vehicle will get LED DRLs and alloy wheels. The U321 will be placed between the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga and the extremely popular Toyota Innova Crysta in the market. It will be a premium offering from the brand and will get a long list of features. The price is expected to remain aggressive in the market to take on the highly successful Ertiga and the Innova Crysta.
Two different variants of the S201 compact SUV are seen in the video too. There is a base version of the car that gets steel rims and wheel covers and there is a high-end version of the vehicle that gets alloy wheels. No other details have been revealed because of the heavy camouflage surrounding the compact SUV.
Both vehicles will get all-new engines. The U321 MPV will get a 1.5-litre mFalcon diesel engine that has been co-developed with SsangYong. It generates a maximum power of 125 Bhp and a peak torque of 305 Nm. There will be a 1.5-litre petrol engine too that generates a maximum of 163 Bhp. There will be both manual and automatic transmissions available with the vehicle.
The S201 compact SUV will get the 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine that generates segment-leading 140 Bhp. The diesel engine will be similar to the U321 and it will also produce segment-leading 140 Bhp in the S201. The S201 will also come in a long wheelbase (LWB) version that will offer 7-seats.
