One of the largest SUV makers of India, Mahindra & Mahindra has unveiled a new range of variants for its premium MUV, Xylo. Replacing the E-Series are the new H-Series variants which are built with higher grade technology and carry an engine which is much more refined. There are three grades of this range which are H4 which comes with ABS as an option, the H8 with ABS and airbags as options and the H9 which is loaded with technologies like Cruise Control, Digital Drive Assist System and Voice Command Technology. The auto marque has priced the H-Series between Rs. 8.48 lakh and Rs. 10.78 lakh as ex-showroom price in Bangalore.
At the heart of the new H-Series is the refined mHawk engine which is set to offer a class leading 120 bhp and 280 Nm torque for better drivability on both city roads and highways and an excellent fuel economy of 14.02 kmpl. It is equipped with all-new transmission which facilitates effortless gear shifting. All these additional customer benefits are offered without any increase in the price (as compared to outgoing E-Series), thereby offering even greater value proposition to customers.
The new H-Series is also equipped with key safety features like ABS with EBD, Dual Airbags, Extra Stability Technology Suspension (EST), Reverse Parking Assist and several other features.
Mr. Pravin Shah, Chief Executive, Automotive Division, M&M Ltd., spoke at the introduction of the new H-Series Xylo to say, “The Xylo has since its introduction in 2009 carved a unique identity for itself in the area of class leading space & comfort. The addition of the world class mHawk engine will further boost its performance and take it a notch higher in its segment. Equipped with higher power and better efficiency, we are sure that the new Xylo H-Series will be a popular choice amongst the discerning personal buyers”.
The all new transmission (5MT 320) providing effortless gear shifting in the H-Series Xylo, will further improve driving comfort. The mHawk engine was previously introduced in the top-end E9 variant of the Xylo. The rationale behind the nomenclature of the Xylo H-Series derives from its engine, where ‘H’ connotes the world class mHawk engine with high power, high performance and high mileage. The Xylo H-Series will be available in one new colour -- Dolphin Grey, (H8 & H9) apart from being available in 5 other attractive colours.
