Exactly. Why compare a utility vehicle with a sedan? Both have their own virtues, and fan followings. And their homepage flash ad that follows cursor movements only to bulge a sedan out of proportions is equally overdone .

Shouldn't they have crushed an Innova instead?

M&M is doing too much of hype for this one. It better be a good product. Another 4 more days lets wait.

Mahndra people dont consider Logan as their own (apparently). The company is separate and is a JV with Renault and M&M is considering pulling out of it.

Has any one seen the XYLO ? No full photos of the vehicle as yet. Looks like M&M has managed to keep it a secret & create an hype.

Sir, but in India, many Innova and Scorpio buyers also consider Lauras and Fiestas and other sedans before buying, and vice versa. Some buy either the Scorpio / Innova or Skoda/ Fiesta for family use and a smaller hatch for runabout duty. So sedans and MUV's share market space to a certain extent, and compete each other.

Right title for the thread. The product itself appears to be a "teaser"! Made a sad joke about all of us who waited rubbing hands. What a cruel joke in bad taste.

Lot of design cues from Chrysler Aspen and Dodge Durango. Only isn't as proportionate.
