Well then as I said earlier Mahindra stands up to its reputation of manufacturing cars with Boxy Backs...

Hey amit ,

I guess the car is being launched tomorrow right?? Thats what the website says.

As Parm said , From the scoops I'd prefer the Scorpio rather than the Xylo. But lets decide on when we see it in flesh.

Cheers,
Ramesh

Makes me wonder whether M&M can think outside the box

WRONG.
It looks like the car NEEDS dental braces.

BTW, Mahindra has an obsession with Rabbit Teeth / Vertical Ugly grill. These guys have no aesthetic sense at all. But what the heck? 1000s bought them. I bought one.
I'm just waiting to get rid of my Bolero's rabbit teeth and go the JosePeter way.

Scorpios & Boleros have enjoyed success because these vehicles have proved upon the most vital characteristic of a moving machine - RELIABILITY. I would prefer an ugly but reliable Xylo over any other (not talking about Innova) beautiful but unreliable competitor.

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.

3 different threads about the Xylo on T-BHP are enough to prove that there is NO lack of interest for the UV.

btw, when is the original launch date? any confirmed news?

I had booked a test drive on Xylo website...this afternoon I received a call from M&M Mumbai for address verification....the caller confirmed that Xylo is going to be launched tomorrow.

Jai Hind!!!

I saw a couple of posters " the xylo is coming" on road sides in chennai. It may be the first time car launch posters resemble movie posters from road side.

M&M is trying to have a trademark grill(inspired from the original jeep) in all their products, who knows may be after a few evolutions in the coming decades, they might be as elegant and as classy as the BMW's grill.

M&M have done well to the secret. Lets hope the vehicle is worth it!
