Mahindra Mini Xylo is a compact XUV and is a lighter variant of the Mahindra Xylo, with respect to size and engine power. The vehicle is a 5-seater and marks the entry of Mahindra & Mahindra into the segment of 4-meter cars. This new compact version of the popular SUV from Mahindra will imbibe all the positive traits of the original version, the Mahindra Mini Xylo.
It is expected that this car will be as aggressive in looks as the standard Xylo has branded for itself. However, the Mahindra Xylo Mini will not contain some of the high-end luxury features that the parent model has. The omissions have been necessitated for the vehicle to adjust to its pricing of Rs.5 lakh compared to the Rs.7 lakh of the original version. Features that are expected to be incorporated into the Mahindra Mini Xylo include Bumpers in body colour, Trip Meter, Tachometer, A/C minus the feature of climate control, Seat belts for rear passengers, Central Locking, Power windows, Remote-controlled Fuel refilling system, Rear wiper, manually adjustable driver seats, Rear A/C vents and many others.
Power and Comfort:
The engine provided to the Mahindra Mini Xylo will be 1.5L turbocharged CRDi variant, which ensures free flowing of the oil and thereby results in excellent performance on the road. The engine has been made available with 5-speed manual gearbox, however information regarding the variants of this vehicle has still not been revealed. The Mahindra Xylo Mini is also expected to retain all the components relating to safety that has been provided in the parent model. However, though detailed specifications of this vehicle have still not been disclosed yet; one can expect that it will have an impressive quality of upholstery provided within.
Though we are yet to receive details on the mileage aspect; given the engine it runs on, the Mahindra Xylo Mini is expected to deliver 10 plus km/l in city traffic and peak to 15 plus km/l going into the highways.
The Mahindra Xylo Mini is expected to offer all the comforts of driving that its original variant, the Mahindra Xylo has been providing so successfully on the Indian roads. The benefit to the end users is that being dimensionally small and a little low on power, it can suit requirements of smaller families and at the same time, it comes with a huge advantage in the pricing scenario. The Mahindra Xylo Mini is expected to be priced around Rs.5 lakh, which will be substantially lower than its parent model, which costs Rs.7 lakh.
