Looks like they have something major at their disposal. And from this video, it looks like they are targeting the sedans more than UV like Tavera and Innova.

1) IMO, the pricing will be in the range of 6-8 lakhs.
2) Will be positioned against sedans like Accent, Ikon, Indigo and Dzire.
3) Will be fully laden with features like climate control, etc to safety necessities like airbags and ABS.
4) Will be spacious atleast till the middle row unlike Scorpio whose driver's seat itself is not comfortable.
5) I hope Mahindra is not overconfident about this product.

Well, makes one wonder what Mahindra is launching- a car or a stealth jet. I fail to see the point in such secretiveness- even Ferrari California or Rolls Phantom Coupe did not have such a shroud. Hope the vehicle live up to expectations.

Seems M&M guys are already confused about how to position this vehicle. Xylo better be a MODERN UV or else M&M is doomed

How stupid of them to forget their own "sedans"! Looked like they dropped it on the Logan.
I hope Xylo doesn't look like the BOX they dropped.

Why do all their vehicles come out of boxes or are boxes? I remember the scorpio ad where it came out of the Jumbo plans and also from underneath the lawn!

well yeah i too hope Mahindra is not over confident..but i don't think Mahindra is targeting sedans in the shape..but obvious.. i can believe that they will try to make it more comfortable than a sedan..Mr. Pawan said that it is a customer centric car.. i dont care if it looks like a box..if it is as comfortable and spacious as a jumbo jet so obvsly lets not confuse its looks with its features

The ad is definitely a teaser - I saw it this afternoon and am waiting to how they work from their present punchline!

Guys M&M is a pure UV manufacturer, and since they had a very gud partner Renault , they made a super car named Logan, they realized the scenario and they backed up from the RNB(renault,nissan,bajaj) partnership, now they atleast focust on the UV mkt.
