XYLO Mini spotted

Recommended Posts

The steering looks like same as new Bolero.

There will be lots of things similar in Mini-Xylo and new Bolero including LCCR Engine. Spare wheel on the tail gate looks nice is enhancing the image of mini-Xylo giving it look of an Mini-SUV than a big hatch.

Let's hope M&M give an impressive front to Mini-Xylo just like XUV500.

With looked the same. Interior appeared same and as for the centre console couldn't say much because there was a laptop placed.

 

Also Audi testing its A4 and a Land Rover but couldn't get pic's will be ready next time.

The mini-SUV is an excellent concept. The vehicle can be easily priced 30-40% lower than the regular Xylo. Apart from lower production costs in terms of material savings, the mini-Xylo will save 12% in terms of tax too. Since the vehicle's weight will be atleast 25% lower, it can be powered by a smaller engine, which will again mean lower costs & higher efficiency.

Hope to see the mini-Xylo being launched in the next few months. And I am sure that Tata Motors might also be working on this concept. M&M being SUV king was expected to kick-start this mini-SUV segment.

Anyone has any idea about launch date and price.

Someone said new engine (from Bolero) LCCR, what are the specs?

I don't think the mini-Xylo will be powered by the 2500 cc Bolero Engine. M&M is developing the mini-Xylo to take advantage of the tax concessions given to vehicles shorter than 4000mm in length. The other condition for this is to use a diesel engine of less than 1500cc. Thats why the mini-Xylo will mostly be powered either by the Renault engine powering the Verito or a 3-cylinder version of the 2200cc mHawk engine. I feel the latter has a better chance of making it to the mini-Xylo because of its superior Specific-Power Output.

Update: Mini Xylo might come mid-2012.

 

 

Hmm...so there is a delay...as earlier we were expecting it to be in late 2011 then during AE2012 then Q1 2012 and now probably end of Q2 or Q3.

The even stronger response to the XUV500 in the second phase of bookings has encouraged M&M to contemplate raising the XUV500
