That Xylo front end job looks OK.

I agree with you earlier generation Scorpio looks better comparing to the present one. I dont think they need to fire the entire design team, most of the complex design jobs in Mahindra vehicles are done by their vendors. According to me best looking (!) vehicle from Mahindra table is Bolero. There is one new black Bolero Storm with meaty alloys in our parking lot. Looks awesome.

Default G lookalike spotted at thrissur

Check out a beautifully modded Tempo Toofan (correct me if I am wrong)

Can some off road gurus explain the utility of the device attached towards the left of the front bumper(a pulley kinda thing) and the one which is attached near to the left door (the stand for the high lift Jack)?



Spotted at thrissur round , thats a Pollachi registration one.

Now,why,exactly would anybody go off-roading in that misbegotten creation which has a wheelbase and rear overhang as long as a bus?!

For some reason, the length of this Trax reminds me of a Jeepney. Though, this UV would look real subtle and classy were it standing next to one of those monstrosities!

In my opinion (which I'm sure will be shared by my fellow t-bhpians), the modifications would have looked much better on a SWB Trax.

Decent mods.. Few changes would make it great. Remove Suzuki sticker from the rear. Try to make the front grill a bit smaller. Remove the spoiler below the rear glass.

The paint job doesn't look all that commendable, check karthik247's gallery for his older swift. One of the best looking swifts I have seen in the yellow shade.

i agree with rjstyle regarding the swift,the back spoiler looks really awful.

That paint scheme makes the Swift look like a cab.And that spoiler spoils it even more!

The Trichur Swift has badly aligned Hellas. They will be completely useless ( and also look quite silly) without proper alignment.
