We all know that Mahindra is working on its new upcoming MPV, codenamed U321, which will be a replacement of the Xylo. The Mahindra U321 has recently been spied testing revealing its interiors by Motoroids.com. The Mahindra U321 MPV's interior, as seen in the images, will get a dual tone black and beige interior theme, twin round instrument cluster dials with coloured backlit, a large digital MID unit. The car manufacturer will also equip the upcoming MPV with a push button start, steering mounted controls and a touchscreen infotainment system. The car will be available with a 6-seat or 7-seat options along with many utility spaces.
The exterior of the Mahindra U321 will get the same front grille that is seen on other Mahindra models, along with projector headlamps, LED tail lamps as well alloy wheels. The higher variants of the Mahindra U321 will also feature DRLs (Daytime Running Lamps), fog lamps and a rear wiper.
The Mahindra U321 is expected to be based on the SsangYong Tivoli's monocoque platform that has been developed by Mahindra’s North American Technical Center (MNATC) in Troy, Michigan. The platform is made of single shell and uses lightweight material that improves the performance and fuel-efficiency of the vehicle.
The Mahindra U321 is likely to be powered by a 1.99 litre diesel engine that will produce 120 hp of power and 320 Nm of torque. The higher variants are expected to get a 2.2 litre m-Hawk unit that develops 120 hp and 330 Nm of torque. The engines are expected to be mated to a standard 6-speed manual gearbox, while some variants could get an automatic transmission and a 4WD (Four-wheel drive) option.
