M&M to launch XYLO (Ingenio) NOW LAUNCHED

Recommended Posts

http://www.mahindraxylo.co.in, this the official website of the Xylo and it's launch date is 13-1-09, approx. 3 days to go. Front end ain't that appealing and back end boxed up look is reminiscent of the Scorpio, with flat rear glass, for cost cutting. @ Sarabjeet: Smokin' & Noisy Xylo spotted in Mumbai...I think there will be a lot of loose end's to be tied up at the after sales service level. They can't match an Innova, can they? Innova is supremely comfortable and refined. Let's see how M&M prices it...that may be an ace up their sleeve. If they make it say 20% cheaper than the Innova they may have an edge..but can they? Wait Durango Dude2009-01-09 16:20:04

Well somebody is saying that it has 2.2l m-hawk, while some is saying that it has 2.6Crde...Well 2.6Crde is not a wise decision to me..

And i hope that this time this Mahindra has Good Suspension/Ride Quality unlike Scorpio which has most bumpy ride i have seen

Bluesapphire:   Thanks for your posts here. 

 

  Just like in Scorpio, I understand, you can get either  2.2l m-hawk or 2.6Crde...Please explain as to why the  2.6Crde is not a wise decision?

Is not 2.2 L engine too small for Xylo or Scorpio?

Based on weight of the vehicle or Ku/erb weight of the vehicle, is not the 2.2 Liter engine small compared to 2.6L engine.  The size of the engine should support the the weight of the vehicle and an under capacity  engine may not last too long.  

 

I am looking for some informed opinions on this topic.  I am buying either the Xylo or Chevrolet Tavera in the next couple of weeks.

Well, XYLO is going to be a great car IMO, i've seen it dash and cabin and also the front which is actually now revealed in front of all of us, and other i can say is that its very spacious as M&M official told me and i mentioned in my previous post.(hope it will be as spacious as safari with acres of roomspace!)

@Bluesapphire, buddy there are more chances of Mhawk -2.2l.

Also, As you said that its not looking so aerodynamic, Well IMO, what aerodynamism one can expect from a S/MUV?

These Utility vehicles are not meant for so much aerodynamism there basic purpose is just to carry people with li'l bit of comfort...but yeah!cayenne and other topend suvs are exception!..overall xylo looks very nice MUV to me!smiley1.gif

 

Also, the wait will be finally over tomorrow, THE M&M IS GOING TO LAUNCH ITS MUCH , MUCH AWAITED XYLO TOMORROW - 13th JAN 2009,so be sure you check out www.mahindraxylo.co.in , Maybe ill attend its launchsmiley4.gif

Well buddy scorpio is already coming with 2.2l M-hawk and that too in top variants that means its much better, so if scorpio can handle why cant Xylo?..

 

And m-hawk is much more refined, powerful and smooth compared to 2.6Crde, nowadays manufacturer are trying to make engines of smaller volumes which can produce even more power  with smoothness and more than anything it feels light to drive unlike those bigger engines which sometimes feels like truck..

These are called modern day diesels..

Even safari have adopted this with 2.2Vtt from the previous 3.0litre engine which was much heavier..

Styling:

The Xylo plays safe with its traditional two-box MPV design. Mahindra

have probably avoided the mono-volume design keeping Indian tastes in

mind. The Xylo is more like a SUV fused with a van. The front end

though is quite quirky. The kinky headlamps top off a fussy and not so

attractive face. We think the Xylo's most pleasing angle is the chunky

rear.

Interiors & Equipment:

The Xylo comes loaded with great

interior space and ground three rows of seats. You can choose between 7

or 8-seat configurations. The well-designed seats offer the right

amount of cushioning and support. Four variants are on offer E2, E4, E6

and E8. Amongst other things the Xylo offers park sensors, a central

information display (speed, current gear, temperature, humidity,

distance to empty, average speed, speed limit alarm.. and more) and

air-conditioning for all 3 rows of seats. Notably ABS and airbags are not on offer at the time of launch.

Engine:

The Xylo comes with the new mEagle engine. It is a 2.5litre CRDe engine

that's been re-engineered from the 2.6CRDe unit seen on the Scorpio.

The engine offers class leading 112bhp of power and 24kgm of torque,

but refinement and NVH still isn't up to the mark. The gearbox is more

precise though a bit of effort is still required. Interestingly the

much more expensive 2.2 litre mHawk engine package is expected at a

later date.

Ride and Handling:

The Xylo's soft suspension set up shows a

clear bias towards in town passenger comfort. It glides over potholes

and broken roads at low speeds but gets unsettled as speed builds up.

The long wheelbase and soft suspension create a "swing" movement when

changing lanes. But the suspension is more sorted and stable than the

Scorpio; once again thanks to Lotus Design.

Pricing:

The Xylo aims to fill the gap between the Bolero and the Scorpio.

Prices range from Rs 6.24 lakhs for the entry level E2 variant, going

all the way up to Rs 7.69 lakhs for the top of the line E8 variant

(ex-showroom Delhi). This makes the Xylo a great value proposition for

Indian families and the tourist taxi segment in India.

Well the pics and rep[ort of Xylo have been put up on this site..but i would like to copy-paste it here..

Requesting FuelRunGod / CYRUS to close this thread now, Xylo is launched and FRG has started a new thread on it, otherwise it will create unnecessary confusion.Thanks.
