Default Xylo E8 now also with dual airbags

Mahindra has quietly added dual airbags in optional package in addition to ABS in xylo E8, not confirmed whether price is increased or not.

Exactly. They waited for the market to respond when they should have at least offered the E8 with ii during the launch.

Sidindica, I am sure there will be a marginal increase in the price. They did the same when they offered ABS on the E8.

well this is what was missing from mahindra stable to offer airbags on xylo as well as scorpio too, why nothing as been offered for scorpio as well?


VARIANTS




Safety
  • Tubeless tyres
  • intellipark reverse assist
  • Engine immobilizer (Transponder based)
  • ABS (Anti-lock Braking System)
just saw xylo website but nothing as so far added on their records to say airbags are added on E8.

:: Welcome to Mahindra Xylo co.in ::

I wish they add anti-roll bars and side impact beam to make it more safer car and to extend this option for all variants.

Good to see Indian manufacturers giving high priority towards safety. As Canonball mentioned an A/T variant of xylo would hit the innova real hard.

Correct me if I am wrong but this is the first time that Mahindra has offered air bags on any of their offerings (at least in India). I am also hopeful that the Scorpio gets the same option. I think these additions are due to their secret SUV project which is nearing completion and is spinning off goodies for the rest.

Thumbs up

A very smart move by Mahindra indeed.

But shouldn't they introduce airbags on the Scorpio top model as well since it is their flagship model.

Guys, i am sure scorpio will have airbags too, very soon. have a look at this scoop from Vicky.in | Indian Auto Portal | Automobile Website | Specification | Prices | Reviews | Test Drive | Pictures | Wallpapers | New Launches

Quote:
* Mahindra is becoming safety conscious atleast now. The scorpio which is available with ABS will now get Airbags. Mahindra would equip the top end variants (VLX) with twin airbags. The launch will happen in December or at auto expo
* Following the Scorpio, Mahindra hot selling product Xylo would also get airbags

Yes. This is the first time they are offering airbags in India. All things going towards the right direction.
