Mahindra & Mahindra will unveil the new facelift version of the Xylo on 8th February. The Xylo was launched in January 2009, and this was Mahindra’s first MPV project. Mahindra is now giving its first MPV a facelift treatment, as the MPV is now 3 years old. It has already reached the dealers. We will bring you full details from the launch tomorrow, but meanwhile let us give you a preview of the new Xylo 2012 through the spy pictures which have been spotted online.
The side profile of the new MPV is attractive comprising of body colored door handles and the wheel arches are beautifully carved to fit in safe and secure alloy wheels. On the front end, the headlamps are fresh and the grille has been made less bulky than before. Turn indicators have been provided with tawny treatment and are positioned within the headlamp container.
The brand new bumper has been designed interestingly and a deeper air-dam provides the 2012 Mahindra Xylo a much pleasing and elegant look. Moving on to the rear, the MPV is bestowed with new clear lens tail lamps along with stylized rear bumper. The interiors of Mahindra Xylo facelift look interesting as well. The gear knob seems refreshed whereas the dashboard appears to be sophisticated in beige.
The presence of effective air conditioning system with a terrific sound system will further add more charm to the interior of the MPV. There hasn’t been a major technical change, but apparently, certain modifications could be expected in the brakes and suspension. Speculations suggest that Mahindra and Mahindra will also bring in a new trim of Mahindra Xylo facelift, which will be known as E9.
As far as the price factor is concerned, the face-lifted MPV will certainly come with a higher price tag than the current range. In the nutshell, the new Mahindra Xylo facelift looks ravishing and interesting and would give a tough competition to other MPVs in the Indian car market, which include Toyota Innova, soon to be launched Maruti Ertiga.
