Mahindra has been on an upgradation spree with the updated XUV500 and Scorpio Special Edition and now the Xylo D2 MAXX 9 seater. This is a BS3 variant which is priced at Rs 7.12 lakh, ex-showroom Mumbai. This is aimed at commercial use for taxi segment thus has more seats which naturally increases in practicality quotient.
To distinguish it the Xylo D2 MAXX 9 seater comes with a new grille, new front bumper and wheel arches.
According to Vivek Nayer, chief marketing officer, automotive division, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. “The Xylo D2 MAXX with the mDI CRDe engine is a variant of the Xylo, which delivers great mileage, low maintenance and maximum space, making it a very popular choice with the tour and travel segment. Today, we are delighted to offer our customers the 9 seats option with side-facing rear seats – a feature preferred by the tour and travel segment. Given that the Xylo has best-in-class space, the side facing seats will provide a great deal of flexibility for carrying people or luggage.”
This new variant of the Xylo with 9 seats on offer has a 95 bhp diesel engine which gives 14.95 kmpl (official figures). Mahindra hopes this new 9 seater Xylo grabs a large chunk of the taxi segment and we are sure it will thanks to its frugal drinking habits, competitive price and abundance of practicality!
