During the launch of the 2012 Mahindra Xylo MPV today, M&M made an important announcement that it plans to introduce the Mini Xylo compact MPV just before the festival of Diwali this year. As told by us, Mini Xylo will battle it out against upper B-segment hatchbacks, Premier Rio and upcoming Maruti Ertiga. The new variant of the Xylo will measure under 4 metres in length and avail the benefit of excise duty cuts being given by the Indian government. The Mini Xylo will seat 7 adults. However, the top end model of the mini Xylo will be a 5 seater. Mini Xylo’s spare wheel will be mounted on the tail gate.
It is being expected that the Mini Xylo will be powered either by Verito’s diesel motor or a downsized mHawk 2.2 litres oil burner.
