Mahindra Xylo (2011) Review
Expert Review by Maxabout
Overview - Affordable & Feature Rich But Not In The League Of Innova
Code-named Ingenio, this utility vehicle from Mahindra made a lot of news before and after its launch. It was launched in 2008 as 'Xylo'. The platform project of Mahindra Xylo costed Rs. 550 crore for the utility vehicles market leader. Mahindra has tried its best to improve the overall build quality, fit & finish of its products with the launch of Xylo.
Xylo has been priced very competitively as compared to the Chevrolet Tavera & Toyota Innova. Though the quality of Innova is still much better than the Xylo but Xylo's finish is the best in comparison to other Mahindra products - Scorpio & Bolero. In terms of features available and price you are paying for it, you have a winner in hand but if you are a quality conscious customer and money is no concern then Xylo is not for you - Innova is the best in this segment.
Update: Mahindra Xylo Celebration Launched at Auto Expo 2010
Mahindra India has launched the Xylo Celebration Edition at the Auto Expo 2010. This edition gets classy pearl white finish for the exterior and designer leather for the interior, genuine leather wrapped steering wheel and gear knob. The Mahindra Xylo Celebration Edition offers everything the Xylo E6 offers along with a host of other specially designed features:
- DVD player
- Blackened B and C pillars
- 2 Din music system
- Ski racks
- Celebration logo and Decal
- Only 1000 of these will be made
Update: Top Variant E8 Gets Dual SRS Airbags & D2 Variant Launched
The Mahindra Xylo has been a huge success for Mahindra - thanks to reasonable pricing and lots of features on ofer. Mahindra sold more than 2700 units of Xylo sold in October, 2009. Mahindra has just introduced airbags as an option in the Xylo E8 on the basis of customer feedback and suggestions. This is a good move by Mahindra as the Xylo’s rivals are also equipped with similar safety features.
Mahindra has also launched the Xylo D2, a new variant of its best selling Xylo. Equipped with a new 2.5 litre mDI CRDe engine, the XYLO D2 offers excellent power and torque and a high level of fuel efficiency at 13 kmpl. The XYLO D2 is available at an attractive price of Rs. 6,30,300 lakh (Ex-showroom New Delhi).
Design Of Mahindra Xylo
Mahindra Xylo's aggressive radiator grille - with chrome slats looks very cool and familiar like Scorpio and Bolero with chrome centre. The tops models comes body colored bumper & integrated fog lamps. The sloping bonnet adorn the muscular front end of Xylo. The features of Xylo further which enhance the imposing stance of the vehicle are its twin-colored outside rear view mirrors and wrap-around taillights. But if viewed head-on the Xylo looks a bit disproportionate which less width and more height. Innova and Tavera both look more balanced and stable. When viewed from side it looks ordinary like other Multi Utility Vehicles. Xylo looks best from rear three quarter view with stylish tail lamps and chrome strip above the number plate which gives it a up market look. Mahindra is also offering dual shade paint option for the high end models.
Interiors & Comfort Features Of Mahindra Xylo
Completely created from the inside out, the Xylo keeps all the needs and wants of the would-be passenger in mind. This translates into surprising legroom, both in the second and third row. Theatre style seating ensures that none of the passengers feel left out of the conversation, even if they are seated in the back row. Independent AC vents ensure that the Surround Cool Dual AC cools all corners of this spacious car with individual controls for each passenger.
Xylo is also the only car to offer flatbed front seats, just like in the business class of a world-class airline. Additional unique features include foldable flight trays behind the front seats, individual reading lamps for each passenger and conveniently placed laptop and mobile charging points. The doors are fitted with puddle lamps, giving passengers visibility while alighting from the car at night. Cabin lights shut gradually after a few minutes, giving passengers enough time to settle inside the car. A wide arm rest in the front row provides the driver and co-passenger with comfort, while an integrated foot rest allows easy entry and exit.
The driver’s seat is ergonomically designed with height adjustment control to maximise comfort on long drives. Lumbar support can also be adjusted to three positions while the unique tiltable steering wheel gives you the perfect driving position. An illuminated keyhole ring allows you to conveniently locate the keyhole even in pitch dark conditions. Utility spaces abound in the Mahindra Xylo with a well defined Centre Console housing space for CDs, magazines, etc.
