Mahindra U301 is probably of the most concealed cars in the recent times. Mahindra has been sitting quietly over divulging any information related to the new compact SUV offering from the company and all we have seen for the past few months are spy shots. But not anymore as the Indian manufacturer is all set to reveal the details about the U301 on the coming 30th July, 2015.
The compact SUV segment is becoming crowded with new and new launches every day and it will be a tough fight for the Mahindra U301 (codename) to make a mark. The new SUV will be positioned above the Bolero SUV and the Quanto MUV, as a premium offering that will compete against the Hyundai Creta, Maruti S-Cross and Ford Ecosport.
Mahindra will offer the same 1.5-litre diesel unit in the U301 that has been powering the Quanto, but with improved mileage and performance. Mahindra is also said to have given better driving dynamics and plush interiors to match the rivals. Since no clear images of the U301 are out yet, we can't comment on the exteriors as well as the interiors.
About what is to happen on 30th July, reports are that Mahindra will first clarify the name of the U301. Mahindra can also reveal the basic outline and the interiors of the SUV along with specifications. The launch of the car can happen anytime this year, making the U301 join a long list of utility vehicles from the company.
