Even the design of the interiors could be very much like that of the XUV500. The car will be considerably loaded and will have a long list of features, which would include automatic climate control for air conditioner, audio system and telephony controls on steering wheel, tilt adjustment for steering wheel, a XUV500-like infotainment system with a slightly smaller screen, a safety net that will comrpise of ABS, EBD, ESP and four airbags. Rear ac vents could be another added feature in list of S101.

From what we’ve been hearing, the S101 compact SUV could have an ARAI claimed fuel mileage of almost 23 kmPl.
