Thanks Rajeev,

The VIN for the E8 is 2013, but I don't know the month. I would like to wait for the E9 but the sales guy is making it look like they might be discontinued or something and hence the dilemma.

Try another dealer. I am sure there are at least 2 more dealers in Pune. Or at least tell Sahyadri that other dealer has an E9 readily available. Negotiate harder, twist their arm and Voila!

Will do this today, Ajay. It seems Mahindra's Nasik strike is taking its toll. The only colour everyone has is white and the shock and awe on their faces when any other colour is asked for is a sight to behold.

Its a pity my only other choice in this segment is the Innova. We have 3 of them in the family and can't bear to be the "getter of the fourth one".

Will speak to the other two dealers and see what happens.

Thanks.

Ok, the story so far. Spoke to Kundan Motors and they say that they can have the E9 ready in Red in a week from me paying the booking amount of 1 lakh.



They are very sure of delivery within 7 to 10 days.

A different take: With weird logic to back it.

Voted for the Ertiga yet frankly for 5 adults and 3 children the Innova is the best bet. Yet for most times. The Innova is an overkill. The Ertiga is more car like and I feel if we are going the ladder on frame chassis way one must get an SUV rather than an MUV. MUV in my view is best in the form of vehicles like Ertiga or even lower priced MUV like Tata Sumo Grande or mini Xylo.

The Xylo and Innova are too large and yet not SUV's in the true manner. The Innova though a brillant vehicle is too expensive so while it is fine a superb 4 seater MUV by not being an SUV it carries out a role that can be as well carried out by normal sedans in a better manner.

Wont suggest anyone take along any more than 5 individuals in the Ertiga either. Infact for larger groups feel two vehicles (one of them with an outside driver) is the best way to go in comfort.

For the occational drive with 7 people it just does not makes for good logic to take along a large vehicle for the daily drive for which too it would not be as comfortable as a sedan. An SUV though brings more to the table so it is justified in my view and here the last row is never large enough for long distance rides so it is essentially just a 5 seater where one travels in style and can take on bad roads better. With an MUV one does not have the Style aspect and is neither comfortable.

For the once a year trips one can always rent an MUV.

Breaking News!!! 30/04/13

Well may be not, but just heard from the dealer that Mahindra is changing the Xylo variants to H series from E and is now using the M-Hawk engine across all the new H variants.

The details of the differences between the E and the New H series will be known shortly.


Latest Update 05/05/13.

Just got a call from the dealer. He says the Xylo H9 will be in the showroom by the middle of this week. They are also trying their best to deliver my car by the end of the week as well. The Price has remained unchanged. The 52k discount offered to me on the E9 will not be applicable on the H9 so am pushing for accessories to compensate for the loss to me due to model change after booking was made.

They also don't yet know of the differences between the E9 and the H9 yet. Maybe Mahindra will do a press campaign to launch the new H9 in the coming days.

Will keep you all posted as to the outcome of all of this.

Just met with GM of Sales at Kundan Motors. He says the launch of the 'H' Series is on the 15th and my car will be delivered on the 16th. Let's see. He did not have any further details as to what has actually changed in the top end variant as it already has a M-Hawk in it.

He just said that it has been re-tuned to deliver better BHP and a few cosmetic changes. Keeping fingers crossed that the cosmetic changes will not be a case of one step forward and two steps back.

Hi Kalinga,

Yes, got the H9 on the 17th. No changes that I can see between the E9 and H9 in the visual that is. In driving the gear shifts are smoother and the vehicle does seem to be a bit more stable whilst turning at higher speeds. I must add that I have only driven the E9 for all of 7 to 8 kilometres, that too a demo car so may be this comparison needs to be taken with a pinch of salt.

Getting my number plates today and will hit the highway and report back any new findings.

Congrats for the car. Drive safe & Enjoy..

We are waiting for your review on the H9.
BTW, any new feature in comparison to E9 ?

Did you get any discount for this model? I just got the price for H4 ABS is 9,94,000 OTR pune. They are giving free insurance as of now.

Thanks,

I did not get any discount. In fact I had booked an E9 in April which was going with a 52k discount. No stocks for that and the launch of the H9 cost me extra.

They only gave me 7k off my insurance. The buying experience was quite a roller-coaster ride. Won't get in to that now. All's well that ends well.

It is the H4 and H8 versions that will really benefit with the M-Hawk engine. The H9 as I mentioned has had nothing really done to it in terms of cosmetic changes.

Here is a pic of my H9...
