Default I got home the Xylo E6! UPDATE: Pics & 3000kms report (post #106 onwards)

Hi Guys!

Finally after a long round of discussions and speculations, I got home the Xylo E6. Have been reading this thread (Mahindra Xylo test drive) for two-three weeks and finally decided to go for it.

The sheer fact that we do not have other option in this price tag with all the features in this world, I think the over all package is really worth going for.

Here are the pics. Please excuse me for the bad quality as was not carrying the camera. A full review will follow soon.

Congrats.

Whats inexcusable to me, is that after all the research, they couldn't make the lines flow well - it makes the innova look well rounded - yes I'm a fan of Italian designs - or even Fords ...!! All said, at that price, its well worth a buy. RIP Tavera !

Vinay,

Congrats on the buy! I guess the first ownership of Xylo on Team BHP. Please put your initial ownership experience. from driver's & passenger's point of views.

BTW What was the OTR prices? Did manage to get any discounts?

Enjoy the new ride!

Vinay, congrats on the buy!

First step - please start your own thread! I believe this is the first one on T-BHP. Let's celebrate the new addition together!

Or, maybe you can request the MOD's to make a new thread from your post.

Wishing you many many miles of pure bliss!

Thanks Phamilyman! Yes, I agree that the Innova has a better build and finish but you get a lot for your money with the Xylo!

Congrats on new buy + being the first on T-BHP.

I could recall the Logan time, when initially there was lot of criticism on build and price, which eventually turned into appreciation of space and economy; followed by decent number of purchases from forum members.

I am sure here history is repeating - another Mahindtra baby in form of Xylo would also follow the footsteps.

Congrats buddy!
How was your overall purchase experience? Booking, post booking, payment terms, offers, accessories, delivery etc..??
Any tip to be noted while going for a Xylo?

Please start knocking your keyboard. I think these tips and experience info will help people out here.

Congrats Do keep us updated about the ownership.

I felt the Xylo to be a VFM product after I TDed it. Good buy.

Congratulations Vinay. Please put up a detailed report A.S.A.P! Your ride looks nice but is crying out for a nice set of alloys and wider tires.
