I am also one of those eagerly awaiting the mini-xylo. However it's important at what price point it will be launched.

I did some calculation and to me the base version of the car will be priced at around 5.7 Lakh, if we assume Mahindra will save 20% in manufacturing and another 12% in taxes. What do you think about these calculations and the assumptions?

Default Big Launch by M&M today

According to sources, M&M is gearing up for a big launch today afternoon.

But, it still needs to be ascertained whether its the face lifted Xlyo, or the all new Mini-Xylo, which will be launched today. I feel it will be the mini-Xlyo, as they are said to be launching a new vehicle.

Eagerly waiting to see what M&M is adding to its stable today !

Typical Mahindra Launch preparation starts at least 30 days from launch date with everyone knowing about it. We also see at least a week before the launch date we have soft launches on websites, forums etc. We are seeing no such activity now. So I do not think there is any launch that is planned for today.

It is something to do with Scorpio. Just received an email from Mahindra with this link - :::::: THE BIG DADDY :::::::

Between, any comments on my calculation of mini-Xylo pricing?

It merely pertains to the release of the animation film “Scorpio as The Big Daddy of Cars” – Created by fans for all Scorpio fans!

It appears to be quite reasonable.
I have learned from sources that some NVH issues are holding up the launch. Armed with the success of XUV M&M is taking it easy on resolving the issues too soon.

These spyshots from testing in Europe give clear shot of the vehicle without cloth disguise, export versions? The front seriously needs a change, the facelift spotted at the stockyard in an another thread was much better.

Oh freak! This has the same face as the current Xylo. When they have already worked on the face-lift version which looks better, why haven't they changed the nose of mini-Xylo ?

May be Mahindra & Mahindra will continue to Manufacture the Xylo Mini with old nose and Current Xylo with the changes as spotted in dealers stock yard in other thread of team-bhp.

Also we cannot deny the fact that Xylo's new facelift design would have come at a later stage or in designing stage during the manufacturing of these test mules and therefore Mahindra used the same old design in Xylo Mini

There is also possibility that the Xylo mini will come with new facelift, but for that we need to see it in flesh

Having mini Xylo & Xylo with two different "looks" should cost more when it comes to production cost. From what I understand, the more part sharing, lesser costs & better profit.

Again, if the mini Xylo is going to come in the facelifted version, why would they test the old design. I believe change in design might result in change in structural parts and hence doesn't make sense to use an old design for testing, if they don't plan to bring it in.

Ahh, so first screw up the sales with the old design & then boost huh? But that would be an expensive move. I know a lot of people reject Xylo for it looks. And I believe M&M realized it and worked on the face lift version, what's the point in bringing another vehicle with the same looks? To me, design of the car in that segment is very important for sales.

But then, as said, we can only speculate till we see in flesh!

Not to screw up actually. May be to make it look different from the new gen Xylo. Else the shorter one would look just like the bigger one has been chopped at the back!!

And since the Dyes and machinenary is already setup and functional, it will help in lowering the production costs.

Just my 2 cents worth!

Guys,

I tried cracking this one.

Front grill might be a mix between the New grill and the Genio's grill.
Bumpers could be the old one with new fog lamp cladding and a blackened center grill. (thats what I could make out from the spy pics)

By the way, what do you think this one would be named?
How about JUNIO??

Yup! Feel same.
It wouldn't be wise for them to keep the same looking face on the bigger one and the Mini.
Atleast I as a customer would want them to make some differentiation. The front end of the Mini Xylo is going to be a mix and match stuff to create a new refreshed look, while still keeping the development cost low, thats what I think.

All in all, the product does look quite good, will sure takes sales figures of M&M higher

Agreed 100%. This front looks but-ugly and come to think of it, I have been waiting for this launch with such excitement!! This is a huge dampener, if true.

Let's hope M & M has better sense than to release this one.
