Hi, I own a 2015 Xylo mHawk. I can assure you that its a great car for its price and segment. When I was looking for a family tourer it was all down to the Innova, then I took a test drive of the Xylo and read quick reviews of it on our forum, and I knew its the one I am looking for. It was better than innova in every department except brand value and resale. Maybe interiors are marginally better on innova too but nothing to talk about. It has served me well with no regrets for 2 years and 27k kilometers.
Now, for you I have following advice:

1. Look for a post 2014 make Xylo mHawk. Since the resale value is not good you can get one around 6-7L easily. Don't even think about the 'D' variants. The post 2014 make Xylo mHawk is based on a new platform, same as the new Scorpio. Ride is more planted and suspension setup is far better than the earlier version. It come with mHawk engine and shares a lot of parts with the new Scorpio thus you will not have to worry about the spares unlike the mEagle variant which was discontinued in 2013-14 and spares might be hard to find 3 years down the line. Mahindra Xylo still consistently is sold around 600 copies per month.

2. If I had to buy a car for the same requirements today I would go for the Tata Hexa, period.

3. The upcoming Xylo replacement muv and the TUV 300 Plus mighy get introductory prices of under 10L. Both of them would be true 7/8 seaters and would fulfill your requirement without breaking the bank.

Priceless inputs right there! What more can a man ask for? I didn't know that post-2014, the mHawk series are that much better. I can only find used post-2014 mHawk examples priced around 7-8 L on Olx and other used car listings though.

These will be interesting ones to watch out for!

Default Can i buy a Innova 2012 now and will i get sold after 3 years ?

Hi All

I am currently owning a Ertiga and want to replace it with Innova. The quote for a 2012 1L km run is close to 12 to 13L.

Now is it worth buying it after crysta launch?
Will it have good resale after 3 years , (8-9L)
Is there any rule going to be implemented ,restricting 2.5Litre engines

If i buy a 2012 for 11 will it fetch 8L after 2-3 years and 1.5L kms

Thank you in advance

Any particular reason why you are not considering a brand new Hexa instead ? It will be far superior than a 1L KM done old Innova, will come with similar safety features as the Old Innova in the XE trim.
On road for XE in Pune before discounts is ~ 14.5L , you might be easily able to lop off a big chunk in discounts.
It will even get you a similar resale (worst case scenario) at the end of a few years, since your projected use is only 50k Kms.

Yes, @12L it is still worth the price, if the car is in good condition. That is because you should have a totally niggle free ownership of the Innova for at-least another 1 lakh KM. In the changing automotive scenario, I guess it would be difficult to predict the resale value after 3 years.

What's the rationale to consider re-sale after 3 years ?
