Pros : Excellent Ride Quality,Strong Engine,Lots Of Space Even in the last row,Powerful A/C,Price

Cons : Odd shape,Sloppy Handling,Cheap Interior Parts,Luggage Space Is Absent

Exterior-Xylo's exterior is oddly shaped.Its not everyone's liking.It looks like a giant.A Xylo owner can easily bully the traffic.It has huge glass area.Ample ground clearance which is one of the most important factor on our roads.From rear xylo looks like a van rear does not match with the front.Looks have slowly started growing upon me. Interior-Mark my words Xylo is spacious than innova.Seats are very comfortable.I had the 7+1 seater version.It had ample of space even in the last row.Dashboard's design is not bad.AC vents,Doorhandles etc are made up of cheap plastics they can break if try to play with them.Aircon is a chiller.In the summers of Mumbai it did its job quite well.The upper AC vents need to be switched on with a button which is located on the vent just behind the passenger seat.All the seats even the last row get their separate reading lamps.Even window on the last row opens which is a thoughtful touch.Power window switches have lights which turn on as soon as you insert key in the lightened key ring.It comes with remote locking which has loud beep which is quite irritating. Engine,Gearbox and Performance-Xylo's engine is smooth, torquey,powerful silent.When I drove the xylo on a straight road it outperformed Innova.But you cannot do cornering in a Xylo.Its handling is typically like a Mahindra.It really disappoints while turning.It is all because of its height.Xylo's gearbox has vibration all the time.The gearnob is a pain to hold on long drives.Otherwise,gearshifts are just fine.Xylo returned fuel efficiency of 13kmpl on highway with full AC which is not bad at an average speed of 100kmph.Xylo has a excellent ride quality it swallows bumps with a ease. Final Verdict-I would go for the xylo if i want a vehicle which is robust.Ready to take any kind of abuse.Has a bulletproof gearbox and engine.Has ample space.And spare parts and service costs are quite reasonable.Spare parts can be easily available.And comes with an unbeatable price tag+Mahindra's Goodwill.

    Beautiful review, I would like to know the mileage of the vehicle at optimum speed of 80km/h. I have read some complaints regarding poor braking and the AC cut off time is too rapid and in certain time even when AC is running it sweats. I have taken the test drive with E8. I would like to take the vehicle in the month of december 2010, i have presently Indica, i read a review stating he has gor 16 km/litre. I fear for the running cost. if anything above 14 its really good for this successful XYLO. Suggest me.

    @Beno Braking is not poor it feels a bit risky because of the vehicles height there will be no problem once you get used to it.AC cut offs only when you accelerate hard this has been done to improve overtaking manners.There are two modes for AC that are high and low if temperatures are high switch on the AC in high mode and for low temperatures switch it on low mode.I have used xylo in Nagpur at a temperature of 47 degrees still the AC did its job quite well.I have never faced sweating issues.It may be because of train like huge glass area.A good quality sun-control film will do the job.Mileage depends completely on driving style so i cannot comment much on that
