Good news! Guess the launch is not too far away or Mr. Mahindra himself of fedup of asking his team when is the vehicle getting launched? Err, why is the grill not connected? Looks like a toddler with broken tooth!

Are you sure about this? Looking at that tweet, I am under the impression that he is answering in the affirmative for the question about whether the competition is open for US folks or not.

I am quoting the tweet here,

"Yes it is..“@dragupta:my guess is sept 2, 2011. You did not answer whether this was open to people outside India. I am in the US”

If it is really Sep 2nd, good for us.

Oops !! Now is it so ? I didn't think about it in that way ! Should we ask the mods to delete my post ?

Edit:: I sent a tweet to Anand Mahindra ! Lets see whether he confirms it or not!

Looks like they are going to put a horizontal chrome strip there at the bottom. Looks better comparing to other Mahindra vehicle front grill

looks much better than any previous M&M vehicle based just on the covered front view snaps. Sep 2 would be a day to watch if this indeed is launched then. The colour too looked good. The earlier snaps had a few wierd bits on the bumper, that is hidden here, so we need to see it that gets better.

Update:: Sorry guys !! I was too excited to interpret the comment from Anand Mahindra in a different way !

The confirmation is still NOT ON ! Looks like we will need to wait for some more time to get any news on this front!

This is a good looking car(from the spyshots-not the render above). I think its the most contemporary looking car to come out of any Indian manufacturer. Good job Mahindra.
The grill needs to be fixed but otherwise,I like the front end. I think those back tapes are hiding LED fog lamps( a la Q7). From profile/rear shots, the proportions are pretty good.
I can see why many people are upset-because it doesnt look like an "SUV". Its not. Its a cross over. And a very modern (looking atleast) one.

"The new SUV (codename S101) will duck under four meters. A few years back there was a talk in the public domain of a Scorpio junior and Mahindra, it seems, has listened closely.
The mini Xylo expected in the next few months will sport a 1.5-liter 3cyl diesel engine producing 70hp/160Nm. This engine will carried over to the S101. The S101 could also be strapped with a compact petrol engine displacing under 1.2-liters"

Cheers!


Nano SUV to follow compact editions of Xylo and Verito
