The grills on the Mahindras increasingly remind me of the mask on Anthony Hopkins in the Silence of the Lambs..

I am not sure whether its a 2 stroke. I could be wrong but The exhaust looks like that of a 4 stroke. it could be running a 4 stroke.

Nothing much. I don't know about the performance show in Mumbai.

If you watch closely the grill has a mesh. Bumper hangs also.

Just wanted to see how the rear and sides look. The white Xylo is a limited edition, only 1000 are made.

like most who have mentioned here regarding the looks of mahindra vehicles, i too seriously feel mahindra has to get real good designer,to change the looks of the vehicles, even the thar,with 4 bucket seats????it really looks funny,and please,i dont want to talk about the rear lights of the thar, which reminds me of signal lights.i been using mahindra vehicles for 16 years now, workmanship is still great,but the looks department is all thumbs down.

please guys dont go by the Thar Adventure standing in the autoexpo, thats just a show case vehicle and not the actual THAR!

'our' THAR is not going to have 4 bucket seats and not even those signal lights at the rear.

its going to be an no frill, proper 4WD offroad vehicle. just like in this photo.

Good pictures GTO, the Adventure looks similar to Classic. Mahindra classic is currently not in market. Is Adventure available in India? Looks to be Left Hand Drive.

The trucks are a total let down in comparison to the tata prima. The bus defenitely will need to go to the wierd and whacky thread, with its ugly bugs bunny toothed grille. But the Thar, thats one hell of a looker. Mahindra you have a golden goose in your hands so get this launched in India quick but save us the yucky mods on the adventure, no one needs them, so just give us the bare essential one.

Hi Parm,

The "'our' THAR" is very interesting phrase. The greedy juices are flowing.

on the bus: It solves the mystery of why the Myan's went extinct.

on the trucks: I seem not to care on the looks as long as they don't kill me. I am probably the only one who doesn't think they are that ugly. I mean they are better than the Gio. Maybe the 3rd times the charm for Mahindra. Lets see what comes the next/3rd time. Rabbits are known to have a short life span.

On the Thar: I hope they release it soon, any Idea on how much it is likely to cost? Must start saving up.
