How long will M&M make its customers wait, I read that trial production began a few months ago.

This will shake up the market if priced around Rs 5 lacs and if the engine is reliable and fuel efficient too. Many people aspire to have a SUV type(spacious) vehicle but shy away due to cost reasons.

Prospective customers are waiting for long now and the competition is also gearing up slowly.

With the Ford's Ecosport India plans. http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/intern...all-suv-6.html Mahindra should launch it early to take early movers advantage in this newly introduced segment of compact SUV's (or UV's to be precise?).

Any way's it's always a customer's advantage to have more options to choose from - in this case the compact SUV's.

I can wait for my next vehicle for at least one more year before I upgrade my 1 year old Alto K10. And my upgrade will definitely be a vehicle like mini Xylo - the vehicle more suitable for roads of my native place than any CAR .

Dear all,

Did I just break the code of whether it is a 7 seater or 5 seater? well, i am attaching some "EXCLUSIVE" pictures that I have clicked this morning. I caught 2 models of the mini xylo; one is a 7 seater (with bench seats facing each other) and the other was, hold your breadth! an 8 seater!!

All I can say is, I am thoroughly impressed with the clever packaging this SUV comes with. The interior quality is leaps and bounds ahead of the current xylo, a whole good textures, better finishing, to some extent spacious for the first 5 passengers too.

What surprised me is that both the cars (7/8) seater had different rear endings! let the pictures do the talking.

if you have any specific queries, feel free to ask.

Now team, due to some errors, I am unable to attach it. Can I mail it to someone to attach the same?
Am dying to see the pics as well as the launch, but it begs me to ask, what's the USE of an 8 seater mini Xylo variant?
a la the Toyota IMV platform then the front should have been changed to be more of an SUV, here the front is the same, then what would be the differentiating factor in the 8 seater mini Xylo and the ordinary Xylo.

Wheel on rear door makes it to look like old gen KIA Sportage
Sub 4 meter yet 7/8 seater is going to be a sure success provided they have 90-100hp engine.

Seems Mahindra is burning all the mid night oil

If you noticed, the height of both the vehicles is different. I got some more pictures, will post them soon. Also, notice that both (7/8) seater models have different bumpers.

Pictures ASAP please! Just a wild guess - the 8 seater for taxi segment [like indicab] and 7 seater for personal usage segment? I really don't find any other reason why a manufacturer would spend the extra bucks on one single model. How was the interiors in both, in terms of quality if you could judge from sight?

Interiors, way to better than the current XYLO and a lot better than TATA MUV's. I am happy to say that they have ditched the dirty brown dashboard from the current xylo. it was a ready model with 2 din player and all clean interiors. Also, look at the shine on the car tires, spanking new! Side cladding over bumpers, make it look nice!

Somehow I think this is based on the XUV platform. Not the Xylo. A Shortened XUV should be cheaper to manufacture than a shortened Ladder-frame Xylo if I am not wrong.

Also this feeling comes from the lettering which says W-203 (XUV was W-201).

AND that also explains a LOT of other stuff I was wondering about.

AND the XUV platform = lower weight = Not feeling underpowered with a 90/100HP engine.

It's just the pictures playing magic. I too thought that they are different. But one has black grill, the other one has white! I also thought that maroon one had a longer hood.

Its not magic. The white one is visibly shorter in height and GC.

The rear bumpers are different.

The rear differential is more visible on the maroon one (W201) than on the white one even though the spare wheel on the maroon one sits behind the differential(presumably) and not on the rear hatch/door as the white one.
