Spy Shot – Pickup truck towed by Ford EcoSport Rival Mahindra S101


After the launch of the much awaited Ford EcoSport, Mahindra is continuously increasing its efforts in order to test Mahindra’s S101 so that it would compete the rival Ford EcoSport in the Indian market. Thanks to the images obtained by one of the reader Mr. B Jayavel of Motor Vikatan which proves that Mahindra’s S101 was caught testing again where it towed a pickup truck.


The spy shots reveal that Mahindra’s S101 is undergoing towing test which all the car makers would do to their new range of vehicles. The earlier spy shots of S101 available all over the web were completely camouflaged with no bumpers or grills being visible. Whereas in the recent spy shots, the components have been painted in the traditional prototype livery, the front bumper and the grill are no longer camouflaged.


S101 is expected to be powered with upcoming range of small engines from Mahindra instead of Quanto’s 1.5-litre 3 cylinder engine. Apart from this, Mahindra’s S101 front bumper would be featured with twin air dam layout; front grill would sport a honeycomb like mesh and an oval where the Mahindra’s logo would be later placed. However the design may still vary since the car is under testing and is expected to make a launch in 2014-2015.
