Default re: Mahindra Testing sub-4 meter XYLO. EDIT : Fresh PICS on Page 38

Today was speaking to Mahindra sales guy.
He said the launch is on Jan 7th.

I checked here I was not sure if this is an already shared info.
Hence thought to post.

May be they may do a news item for flash and then follow it up with a detailed release in the Auto -Expo

See the pic showing its Left side-Rear section, Its brilliantly executed with Wrap-around glass effect like XUV 500.
Despite of cluttery & tiny 3-cylinder, 1.5 l engine, this car boasts a brilliant package for Entry segment upgraders.
Can't wait till its launch.

Just saw the Autocar show where Hormazd Sorabjee mentioned that the Mini Xylo wont be showcased at the Auto Expo. I find it quite stupid since the reason given is that Mahindra dont want the Xylo & XUV to be overshadowed by it!
So probably the official launch would be after the Expo.

Probably they are betting BIG on the Xylo face-lift. What M&M feels is quite true - Mini Xylo will definitely take the lime light away from other M&M products. Though XUV needs less fame, Xylo face-lift should be worried. Let's hope M&M brings in quite a punch with the new Xylo, so much that Innova is forced to sport a better kit.

The logic that the mini Xylo overshadows all other vehicles is not quite robust.

XUV is already overbooked. One doesnt see any ads in the newsprint. Which means they are least concerned, at this stage, about the visibility/publicity.

By the way, how many of the buyers go to the auto expo?

Don't media cover the event?? Especially with all the news & speculations, I am sure mini Xylo is going to be a HOT topic. And I seriously expect killer pricing for this since M&M tasted success with XUV price. Imagine news channels, automotive blogs etc giving more attention to such a vehicle which could be a game changer - A micro SUV [by size standards] with a good diesel heart and a very affordable & sensible price [assuming so] which is HIGH on practicality in the Indian market scenario! What else do people look for??

If its a photoshop, its a good one! But yeh, straight lift of the fabia front end and replaced the logo i guess. Doesn't look like the real deal does it?

^^^ Hormazd mentioned Mahindra does not want mini Xylo to be lost in the melee off launches happening at the auto show. They are planning a bigger launch soon after the Auto expo

Hmm. Agreed. I think many manufacturers are thinking on same lines. Nobody wants divided media interest on their launch. I think AutoExpo will be used to showcast concepts only. Definition of concept can be anything.


OT: Maruti is also planing in similiar lines for Ertiga. I think they will display it just as production ready CONCEPT model.

That exactly is the point. Exposure to media is not at all a problem these days.
So, the reasoning that the mini Xylo may dominate the XUV is not tight. Conversely, the mini Xylo gets the required exposure.

There is a mix up! This topic started when we were discussing M&M's plan to NOT showcase the mini-Xylo in Auto Expo. What I said was this plan was done because M&M didn't want to take away the lime light from face-lifted Xylo. As you said if mini-Xylo was launched in Expo, it would definitely be a hot topic and regular Xylo face-lift will lose importance [XUV doesn't need the focus as well].

What I hear now is that, M&M doesn't want the mini-Xylo to be lost among the huge number of launches / cars in Auto Expo; so they have decided to launch it in a totally different event, like the XUV 500 launch. Shows how much do they bet on it! Should be a lovely package.

Too high + smaller wheelbase will be a disaster when it comes to handling and stability. Worried!

This is valid reasoning. Actually, if Auto Expo is the only event where one would get maximum media, that is a fallacy. There is bound to be a lot of cacophony.
