New Mahindra Xylo launch on February 8, to counter new Toyota Innova
Update: The New Mahindra Xylo is now out again to haunt the MUV segment leader New Toyota Innova with more added features at a price that is quite reasonable. The New Mahindra Xylo D2 and D4 variants, which are famous among tour operators, are priced at Rs 7.37 Lakh and Rs 7.77 Lakh respectively. While the top end variant E9 that now carries the 2.2L mHawk diesel motor under its hood is priced at Rs 10.25 Lakh. The prices mentioned are of ex showroom Delhi.
Mahindra Xylo is making news these days, be it for its Rs 5 lakh mini avatar that could be coming hopefully next month or it is about facelift version. The 2012 Mahindra Xylo is reportedly ready after taking on changes and is soon to be launched on February 8. Triggered by the new Xylo, 2012 can be dedicated to be year of MPVs in India. Interestingly, the segment leader Toyota Innova has already pitched in its new avatar at the Auto Expo 2012 held in New Delhi. The new Mahindra Xylo price is expected to be a little higher than the outgoing model.

Majorly the new Mahindra Xylo has received facelift at the front and overall the body. The interiors too have all new appeal with the introduction of better quality plastics and comfortable seating besides an array of other features adorned in the new Mahindra Xylo. The same 2.5L mEagle engine that outputs 112bhp of power will be giving its service to the new Xylo as well. The other diesel engine option that is the 2.5L 95 bhp powertrain with improved direct injection technology will also be there as an option. Talk of a four wheel drive in the new Xylo is evident in many corners of the Indian auto industry however; it is uncertain whether Mahindra will be revolving all the four wheels together in the new Xylo. Nevertheless, if it happens to get a four wheel drive, new Mahindra Xylo will be the first MPV in the country that can also treat the bad terrain.

The new Xylo launching on February 8 (rumoured) has new headlamps, new bumper, all new grille and an entirely newly designed front that is more upright compared to the nose down look of the current Xylo. With the new Xylo coming in and the new Toyota Innova already in, the industry is expecting that the MPV segment will hot up and a price war will be triggered among the duo.
