2012 New Mahindra Xylo Design and Styling –

2012 Mahindra Xylo’s new aggressive front grille vertical slats looks very cool and familiar like recently launched XUV500. The tops models comes body colored bumper & integrated fog lamps. The new sloping bonnet adorns the muscular front end of 2012 Xylo. The dual-tone paint option with new wrap-around taillights further enhances the imposing stance of Xylo 2012. But if viewed head-on the 2012 Xylo looks a bit disproportionate which less width and more height. Innova and Tavera both look more balanced and stable. When viewed from side it looks ordinary like other Multi Utility Vehicles but to improve the looks Mahindra has introduced blacked-out pillars (only in top variants), which gives premium look to the 2012 Xylo. It looks best from rear three quarter view with stylish tail lamps and chrome strip above the number plate which gives it an up-market look.
