Mahindra Xylo E8 (with ABS) Review. I am an owner of the Xylo E8 variant and I am madly in love with the car, which has satisfied me to the core with everything it has to offer. The Xylo is a car which takes u by storm the first time you take a ride on it. The xylo which comes in the MUV segment of cars, according to me is one of the finest vehicles made by an Indian car maker and it is destined to rule in its segment of cars. This car comes handy with a number of features which are very attractive with the consumers and that is the point where the Xylo stands alone on the top of the MUV segment. The Xylo built in such a way to suit the dirver and passenger for comfort and a safe drive. ENGINE: The Xylo consists of the proven M-eagle engine from the old Scorpio which is in the first place why the car is so good as far as performance is concerned. The engine is very powerful and the pick up of the car is also amazing. The car zooms in front, at a signal when the lights turn green and this shows the amazing power of this vehicle. The car is also good at fuel efficiency and gives a mileage of 10-11 km/l on city roads and 13-14 km/l on highways, and this seems to be pretty decent considering the conditions of our beloved Indian roads. Safety: The Xylo has a number of safety features installed in the car and this enables the safety of the passengers and the driver and also reliable drive. The Xylo has the ABS system of braking (for the E8 variant) which once applied on even high speeds makes the car halt the moment it is applied. Speaking of personal experience 3 months ago when I was on my way to Pune from Bombay via the old highway, the speed of my car was around 80-90 kmph and when suddenly I saw the truck on the other lane, took a left and came on to my lane without any prior indicator and then was when I applied my brakes and the car came to a halt from 80-90 kmph to zero. The other features are the tubeless tires which are nowadays preferred to the tube ones and also the car has Air bags available in it. All these features make the drive safe and secure. Other Safety Features: The Xylo also has the added features of the engine immobilizer and also the Intellipark reverse assist, which allows the driver to take an accurate reverse action and this features signals any obstacles present in the way while taking the reverse. Interior: The interiors provided are very comfortable and helps the passengers to travel with ease, even on long journeys, The space provided have ample leg room and can accommodate upto seven people at a time inclusive of the driver. The ac inside of the car is a powerful one and one can experience a chilling experience even when the regulator is turned at a minimum level 2. I haven?t ever noticed such a powerful ac in any of the cars in the same segment as the Xylo. Price: The Xylo has upto 4 variants such as the E2, E4, E6, & E8. I own a Xylo E8 which I got it at 8.7 L, from Mumbai. Previously before getting the Xylo I had considered purchasing an Innova, but when I compared both these cars and found out that the features in a Xylo and an Innova are not that different but the price factor played a major role, as the xylo is almost 2.L cheaper than the Innova. Conclusion: The xylo, taking all the features and price under consideration is a complete family vehicle and also it gives the right value for the amount of money spent on a car like this.

    I am driving a Matiz SD from 2000. I want to own another vehicle. I would prefer a diesel vehicle for a family of 6-8 persons for occasion outings outside and inside of Goa where I live. I have nearly dropped my initial idea of Toyota Etios Diesel Sedan. I would like to hear suggestions or advice from users about Xylo or other MUV's advantages or disadvantages, mileage or other issues. The Matiz can be turned at 90 degrees in parking stilt from a 3.15 m wide passage on side of my building. Can this be possible by Xylo or other MUV. I doubt if Sedan can be turned without scratching the concrete column. What would be the cost of new and second hand ( not too used). My number is 09422438185. Avinas Porvorim Goa
