The Mahindra Xylo is a CUV, designed and manufactured by Mahindra & Mahindra. The Xylo was launched on 13 January 2009 at Nashik. Five variants, D2, D4, H6, H8 and H9 are currently available [as of Jan 2015]. More than 3,000 units of Xylo were sold in its first full month of sales, after launch in March 2009.
The project, which initially had the codename of Ingenio, was announced by the company in 2006 and was designed to compete in the Indian market with both the Toyota Innova and the Chevrolet Tavera. The project cost Mahindra around Rs 550 crore. Production started in the Nashik plant in December 2008.
Launched in India in early 2009, the Xylo started off well with an initial flurry of sales. However, since then sales have slowly declined, and it is widely believed that sales have not lived up to Mahindra’s expectations. The Xylo was loosely based on the Mahindra Scorpio’s ladder frame chassis. This chassis was modified to take account of the Xylo’s longer wheelbase and higher refinement requirements. The Xylo was launched with a number of seating configurations, including two up front, and two benches [8 seats], or two up front, middle row captain seats and a rear bench [7 seats].
Initially 4×4 variants of the Xylo were also planned, and various test mules had been spotted undergoing trials. However, to date Mahindra has not launched any 4×4 variants of the Xylo. This is perhaps due to the company fearing cannibalisation of its Scorpio’s sales, as well as a reluctance to invest further in development costs of an underperforming model.
In 2012 the Xylo was comprehensively updated. New gearboxes and the modern M-Hawk turbo diesel 2.2L engine were introduced to higher variants. Other changes included revised suspension tuning, a restyled front end, smoked rear lights, blacked out B-, C- and D-pillars, and leather interiors for the top spec H9 model. These changes greatly improved the Xylo, both in terms of refinement, handling, and looks, all of which had been criticized in the press and by owners alike. Xylo sales crossed the 100,000 mark in June 2012. In late 2013 minor [and some would say unsightly] cosmetic revisions were again made to the domestic Indian version of the Xylo, including side body decals and a bonnet chrome strip.
