    ..this time it was planned. Dad was ready with some plan which I was completely unaware of. With 15 days left of my going back to Hyderabad and with the welcome shower of monsoon, we are out on roads, again.
    I was told that some sort of resort was pre booked in my absence and dad promised that it will be an experience that I never had. The packing started a day before and cameras were the top priority as we will experience a village like a village. So a village it was.
    Where?
    "About 150kms"
    How do we go ?
    "Easy, NH2 till Burdwan, then to a place called Bolpur"
    But we have already been to Bolpur !!
    "No, this isnt the Bolpur everyone visits, its beyond the reach of "Tagore"
    This was not the end of the trip. The plan was to reach a place called Murshidabad about 120km more from Bolpur where the last of the nawabs ruled in Bengal just before the British took control over bengal.

    Mahindra has launched a mid-cycle facelift of the Xylo MPV and have also added a new top-end E9 variant.

    The updated Xylo gets a new grille- a flatter bonnet and slightly
    re-styled headlamps. The chin gets small extensions and a new bumper.
    Side profile is unchanged except the new black-plastic wheel arch
    extensions and matte-black footboards which give a more upmarket look. 
    At the rear, taillamps get updated and a black D-pillar.

    The top-end E9 variant gets two-town shade for the dashboard, leather
    seats, a new gear-lever and steering mounted audio-controls. Also on
    offer is an all-new voice command system that allows you to switch on
    the headlights, wipers and even change the radio station via voice
    commands.

    Engine choices remain the same except the addition of a 120bhp mHawk
    engine from the Scorpio which is exclusive for the Xylo E9 variant.

    New Xylo prices (Ex-Delhi)

    D2: Rs 7.37 lakh

    D4: Rs 7.77 lakh

    E4: Rs 8.11 lakh

    E4: ABS Rs 8.34 lakh

    Its always a disadvantage when you are the second mover with a rebadged car. I still cannot understand how two same cars with different bumpers can appeal people, when you already know about the existence of the former. What about product innovation ? better features ? and what is so special about renault then ?
    Renault Nissan should at least try to follow what Skoda-VW does.
