What’s New With The 2015 Xylo
Mahindra Xylo only dared to challenge the Toyota Innova directly, and to an extent its effort are worthy to talk of. Mahindra’s tough UV platform underneath and acres of space inside, even the third row can accommodate three full-size adults, makes the equation more competitive, especially to those who use it for the tourist purpose in hilly regions. But since its ride height is quite high and suspension does tumble it down on the corners disappointed large number of buyers, where the Innova managed to cash upon. However, the 2014 has brought improvements to Innova and Xylo both.

Mahindra Scorpio S4 Plus Launched
2014 would have remained a memorable year for Mahindra, as debuted the new-gen Scorpio.

Nissan Teana Discontinued In India
It doesn’t sounds unobvious for Teana to be discontinued from the Indian market. After all, only a handful of them were sold during 2014, and if said precisely only 15 units were rolled out of the showroom during the entire year. Earlier, it was X-Trail and Z370 that got axed from Indian market. Now, Teana joining their fray had completely shunned off the upmarket presence of this Japanese carmaker. Higher import duties for the cars imported as CBU (completely built units) in India had added woes to Teana’s discontinuation.

After considering the dominance of diesel, those oil burners would have worked for Nissan to earn its bread and butter from this segment if launched. [...]
