Mahindra has been testing its MPV (Multi-purpose vehicle) for quite some time now and has been spotted again on Indian roads. Codenamed U321, the Mahindra MPV has been spotted testing in a heavily camouflaged state, image courtesy Indian Autos Blog (IAB). Currently, not much information is available regarding the Mahindra U321 MPV but the Mahindra MPV gets the company's signature grille at the front that resembles the one that you must have seen on the new Mahindra Scorpio 2017 facelift.  There is a healthy possibility that this MPV will come with projector headlamps that should offer good illumination at nights. Also, LED DRLs (Daytime Running Lights) close to the fog lamps are expected to be on offer. The MPV receives tail lamps that have been fitted in a vertical fashion. The reflectors have been mounted on the bumper and the LED stop light finds its place on the roof. Besides this, the Mahindra U321 MPV can be seen with five-spoke split alloy wheels that add a touch of sportiness.

Talking of interiors, the Mahindra U321 will likely get a dual tone theme. The vehicle is also expected to share the seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system with the Mahindra XUV500. Some spy shots that got leaked earlier this month reveal some details about the cabin and air conditioner vent along with the centre console were seen. The instrument cluster of the Mahindra U321 will get lavender illumination and will display information in a landscape layout. Mechanically, the Mahindra U321 will reportedly draw its power from a 1.6-litre mFalcon diesel engine.  It is rumoured that the company will also be offering a petrol engine option.

The Mahindra U321 will come with a seating capacity of 7 to 8 people. The second row could be offered with optional captain seats although there is no confirmation on this yet. Besides the Mahindra U321, the company will also launch an extended version of the TUV300 that is christened TUV300 Plus and it should be hitting markets in the coming weeks.
