Default re: Scoop!! Facelifted Xylo E9 at dealer yard *UPDATE* Fresh pics with interiors on Pg.6

AWESOME SCOOP!! Awesome DESIGN TOO M&M !! The car looks beautiful now!! Like I posted yesterday, ACI mentions, all round improvements. Hope they outsell Innova this time!!

Edit:: Somehow I feel the Verito design team has worked on this too. The bumper claddings seems to be inspired from the Veirto design.

Edit 2
:: I am still wondering how did the dealer let you take the pics!

Great Scoop Dieseling!!!
Finally, a good looking Xylo. Looks very mature. M&M in my view,did a good job on restyling.
One question though - The 2.2 MHawk Scorpio has air intake scoops on the bonnet. I dont see that on this Xylo. So is there an engine change or just a refresh model?
Regards
Varun.

Just imagine having the same design for the xylo Mini. Now that would be really awesome

Wow, the looks have dramatically improved. Now if the handling also has improved at least a bit, it'll make it a great package!

Superb scoop.

The front looks problem is in my view solved with this revision.

This would look even better in the mini xylo format. Revisions to side (cladding) and rear could make an even bigger overall impact. Exciting Prospect.

Finally it got an okay looking front. Job well done by mahindra. The current one looks terrible in comparison.

Good job M&M! Loved the front design, hope the sportiness continues towards the back also. Hope they have done something about the boat-like ride.

Great scoop Dieseling!

Very Good Scoop, this looks much better than its present avatar. Would this be the Xylo which is under 4 meters?

Thumbs up re: Scoop!! Facelifted Xylo E9 at dealer yard *UPDATE* Fresh pics with interiors on Pg.6

Looks really good now...maybe it should be re-badged as XUV 250 ?

Wow! Thats a nice looking car. Finally they seem to have got it right. It all remains to be seen how well they price it. Good catch. Have you got any pictures of the rear end?

The only nit-picking will be that the gear lever seems tad too long. Looks like it will vibrate a lot on idling !

O.T: Did you complete the PDI of your Scorpio after seeing this car?

Is it me or the bonnet is actually longer than before?

A very nice facelift indeed. Did you get any more info on the engine from the dealer ?

That one on the Scorpio was just for show no air blowing through it. It's absence means nothing interms of the engine variation eitherways.

Nope this is the Xylo could be the short one or more likely a refreshed long and version with the same frontal looks being shared with the soon to come mini Xylo (shortened version) as well. This is not an XUV. The interiors are clearly from the Xylo.

Apologies for keying in it wrongly as XUV, guess these days Mahindra & Mahindra means XUV. My question was more around the Xylo and thanks for your response ACM
