Mahindra & Mahindra is preparing for the upcoming financial year with gusto, having lined up two key models for a possible Indian launch by the festive season. Dr. Pawan Goenka, the Managing Director at Mahindra & Mahindra, has confirmed that the U321 MPV and S201 compact SUV will launch by the festive season in 2018 along with adding that two refreshes are also expected over the next couple of months.
The S201 may get both 5-seater and 7-seater avatars although the former is likely to arrive first. The car uses the SsangYong X100 platform and will be a sub-4m offering to take on the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza and Ford EcoSport. The car will come with turbocharged 1.2-litre petrol and 1.5-litre diesel turbocharged engines. The U321 MPV will have 7 and 8 seater variants as per reports. This monocoque vehicle will have a new 1.6-litre diesel engine that has been manufactured in collaboration with SsangYong. The car is also likely to get a petrol engine option.
