Mahindra & Mahindra finally launches the Xylo in the Indian car market. This new car is designed with detail and perfection to meet the discerning taste of Indian car buyers.

The leading auto components manufacturers like the Bridgestone, Lear, Nippon, BOSCH, Lucas, Visteon, Motherson, and the Asahi have specifically designed a variety of finest quality car components for the Xylo.


On the launch of the Mahindra Xylo, Vice Chairman and Managing Director of Mahindra Group, Mr. Anand Mahindra said, “With the launch of the Mahindra XYLO, the era of sedans is under serious threat! The sedan has long been considered the ultimate in high-end mobility but the XYLO is all set to change this perception. The famed Mahindra DNA of 'tough & rugged' meets an unprecedented level of sophistication and luxurious comfort in the XYLO. The XYLO is the ‘Great Indian Traveling Machine’ and will redefine the future of road travel in India.”


Adding to the statement of Anand Mahindra, Dr. Pawan Goenka, President of Automotive Sector in Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. said, “The Mahindra XYLO is perhaps the first vehicle in the country which has been completely engineered around the customer. The powerful 2.49 litre mEagle CRDe engine is fuel-efficient and delivers 112 bhp, allowing you to literally fly from 0-60 kmph in just 5.8 seconds. Moreover, the Mahindra XYLO offers class-defining lavish space all around such that even a 6ft tall person can stretch in comfort on the 3rd row seat. The XYLO offers an extraordinary level of luxurious comfort at a very cost-effective price for prospective sedan buyers.”


The exterior of the car is designed elegantly with sleek contours and structured edges. It is further accentuated with front grille, integrated bumpers, chunky alloy wheels, and strong curves on the bonnet and fenders. This eye-catching vehicle is even more inspiring when one gets into the car.


Under the hood, this new Xylo is powered with a state-of-the-art 2.49-litre mEagle CRDe engine which delivers a power-packed 112 bhp. It is available in four variants – E2, E4, E6, and E8 retailing within the price range of Rs 6.2 Lakh to 7.6 Lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi), all of these variants conform to the BS III emission norms. The Xylo is released in the market with eight elegant shades including Fiery Black, Mist Silver, Mint Green, Lucky Lilac, Gold Shimmer, Toreador Red, Java Brown and Rocky Beige.
