From this one picture, it looks weird. a bit off ratio. but i guess you need to see the whole image to finally decide.

That is one ugly looking car.... whats up with Mahindra can't they design something that does not look like it came out of a cartoon book?

Its even more comical seeing the occupants of the car dressed in their "phiranji best" costumes in that vehicle. False prestige....

Looks like Mahindra doesnt want to get rid of their trademark front grill. does anyone have side profile?

this surely looks like a qualis wanna-be and targeted for the taxi guys

In the picture posted by wind, towards the right side of the Xylo, is a screen which also feature the car. The image shown there is that of Xylo taking a turn; if not fully, we can still imagine how this car would look. Can someone brush up the screen?

Hello Team;
Not many pics found of xylo anywhere. Is it because of these 2 reasons.

1. Mahindra maintaining the secret of launch / no leaks of the pics from any dealers. Like any other company vehicle Xylo's pictures have not come out. For Eg. Linea, Tata, Suzuki vehicles pics was out couple of days ahead.

2. There is no interest in people about the vehicle.

regards

My Wife spotted a Xlyo on Friday near Worli, Mumbai.
She is not a Auto Buff at all, but I was surpised to hear her instant reaction..

"BoX-LIKE" She was able to see it very well from all sides.. The front and sides looked nice.. but the back.. "BoX LIKE". Scorpio looks better from behind..

This added the fears I had about the Xylo. This could a common reaction amongst people when they see it.


Can it be a bit better.. My fingers Crossed !!!!!!!!!!

Lets hope after so much hype & secrecy we get to see a well shaped car which will appeal to all people.

My personal experience, the reaction of ladies on most cars except sedans and some of the hatches are rather strong.

And any way Mahindra's trade mark is a boxy back, remember the hard top Jeep, Bolero, Scorpio, Logan..lets hope they do some thing different with the Xylo.

yes the xylo is coming with a flat back. just inquired it from the the mahindra agency and they confirmed it . well hope that the over all shape of the vehicle is decent enough . the front is quite nice . I will love to buy one if it is priced properly.

mahindra xylo will be priced much cheaper than innova, cause thats the only way it can beat the toyota!

i would still prefer scorpio over xylo.

Of course it's box like. They showed you the 'Box' in their xylo teaser advt already.

I thought it was going to be today! Anyway, 14th of Jan? Damn, Fiat may postpone the Linea launch again!

But even I am intrigued that not a single uncamouflaged picture of the Xylo is avaliable anywhere. No leaks to even the magazines? Is Mahindra really that secretive about the xylo or is there a lack of interest in the car/UV? If it's the latter then M&M should be really worried.
