New spy images of the SsangYong Tivoli-based compact SUV sporting what appears to be production-spec bodywork have surfaced online.

The spy images suggest that the compact SUV is likely to get Mahindra-specific front and rear ends. The test mule has a front grille with vertical slats like other Mahindra vehicles and wraparound headlamps with L-shaped LED DRLs. The front bumper has a rectangular air dam. At the rear, the SUV has a set of new tail lamp clusters and a roof spoiler. The spotter also revealed that the car had disc brakes all round.

The sub-4 meter SUV (codenamed S201) is expected to compete with the Maruti Vitara Brezza, Ford EcoSport and the Tata Nexon. Rumours suggest that it could be offered with a choice of 1.5-litre diesel and 1.2-litre, turbocharged petrol engines.
