The XUV5OO, on the other hand, pleases quite a few (though some find the bling a bit much).
+1, the ride quality of XUV5OO is way ahead off the out going Xylo.
Hope this new tuned suspension set up reduces this difference.
Also, the rear leaf springs in Xylo still have some kind of bouncy nature left in them. No matter how hard you tune them.

Pic from Source - New Mahindra Xylo launched - Overdrive

While i like the looks of new Xylo, I feel that Mahindra should have removed their logo from the bonnet and moved it to the Grill. It would have looked a lot better.

The new look seems to be good. Since the launch of XUV500, M&M has been ticking the rights notes of Indian Auto Scene.
The Price is also quite competitive, looks to be a success to me already.

Mods: Please change the Name of the Thread to "Mahindra Xylo 2012 Launched"

Completely agree with you.
Would have kept the bonnet clean.

But all in all a big step forward in terms of the old design.
Would help the sales figure of Xylo rise

In the website, they have interchanged the features of the E4 & the E8. So people comparing the E8 & E9, dont be in for a rude shock!

Mod Note : The 2012 Mahindra Xylo has been launched. Full coverage on this thread (PICS : The 2012 Mahindra Xylo Facelift Launch)

The website still seems to be work in progress. I tried downloading the E-brochure and I get the old xylo's brouchure.
