Mahindra Xylo Driving and HandlingMahindra Xylo Steering Wheel Pictures

The performance of the New Mahindra Xylo is breathtaking with its variety of engines available to choose from. The powerful diesel motors provide an excellent driving on the smoother surfaces while some kind of hiccups can be observed on the countryside rough roads, but thanks to the independent coil spring front suspension that is always tuned in well with its rear counterpart suspension, the multi link coil spring. With the turning radius of 5.6 meters it offers sound drivability in the jam packed city traffic conditions. The handling of the vehicle, especially when it comes to responsive front braking, is phenomenal with the disc brakes, while the rear has drum brake servicing your needs. And above all is the ABS with EBD function that is of great help while controlling the vehicle at higher speeds on the highways.

Front disc and rear drum brakes even play their role in controlling the drive and prevents the car to get over the slippery roads at the time of impact. Though every part of the car is responsible for giving a best drive and contributes to it may be the machinery or the features, but what they aim at is the peace of mind that will actually help you to have a better drive.

For charming outside there are sun visors for each window that prohibits the strong sun rays coming in, the mud flaps ensures no water splash or wet mud find place over the rear bumpers or the wheel arches together with some advanced graphics that proffers an appreciable value to your Mahindra Xylo.


Mahindra Xylo Conclusion

This Mahindra vehicle has actually created its unique place in the heart of the Utility Vehicle (UV) segment not only now, but since its launch few years back. Earlier, it stunned the segment with its ‘flatbed seats’ in the cabin that relaxes you, as if you are travelling comfortably full stretched in a sleeper class. Now with the New Mahindra Xylo, the auto maker  has come up with some more innovative and advanced features in the form of Intelligent Parking and Warning Systems to name some.

The other arch contenders lack such features in their vehicles. The Captain seats in the cabin make you feel like an emperor travelling in premium car and now to make it more realistic, the frontage also looks like a modern-age fortress with a real muscle and upright stance.  Generally speaking it is not a multi utility vehicle, but a Multi Activity Vehicle as you can perform multiple tasks of your home, office and bedroom.
