@agspins: Excellent work. Now, the actual vehicle design is fitted into a frame. Looks the ugliest car creation by M*hindra. How could they create such AVATAAR's

Mahindra's next bad looking MUV . The Xylo's profile was OK because it was long hence balancing its height but this looks too top heavy.

It is a body on frame vehicle meaning it will be quite heavy but the diesel engine will make up for this. Hope they improve its looks and the interior space should be the bet in the 'under-4m class'. Let's see how Mahindra markets the Xylo and its price point.

this reminds one of the fusion! that car was too early for the market to understand it. hopefully now people will understand the 5 seater xylo.

If it comes out like this and m hawk engine (preferably 4wd) i will be the first in line with cheque book

love that idea or am i expecting too much

Master stroke from Mahindra, they should do something about the nose, may be do a rejig and fit a smaller version of the WW201 nose. That will make it look much neater.

Xylo was launched as 'Sedan killer', so I guess this one will be a 'Hatch killer' from them if not compact SUV.

Everyone's dreaming about a small SUV under 5 lac.Turns out to be an MUV though...

I like to think that the front end is a cut/ paste job to mask the real identity. Those look like xylo head lamps and xylo-ish grille treatment (aka vento with ford face). Atleast I hope that is not the true face of a sub-four metre MUV-o-Hatch-en-wagon.

this is good news! considering how spacious the xylo is! more bang for the buck at 5Lac ex-show room! I hope they try and give it a slightly different look though

Going by the recent Xylo ads, the long-legged lasses will have trouble stretching their legs :-)

A big disappointment. The least I expected was good ground clearance.

It is a good initiative, Xylo has comfy seats - but has Mahindra reduced the height?

I think its pre-mature to decide under what segment is this gonna be placed. From the looks of it M&M might be pondering on entering the hatchback market, no idea though. uugghhh speculations can go on all day, someone please break the ice.

Spikey what do you think ?
