Regulars here would remember that only a few hours back, we posted a teaser image that we found on Mahindra’s Facebook page. The image showed an incomplete mHawk badge on the Xylo. We deduced that Mahindra might be planning to soon launch new engine variants for the Xylo that would be powered by the 2.2 mHawk engine. It may be noted mHawk engine was already available on the E9 variants of the Xylo and now Mahindra has launched H Series Xylo, which is powered by the 2.2 litre mHawk engine.
The mHawk engine that powers the popular MUV has a max power of 120 PS and the engine’s torque is rated at 280 NM. The Xylo H Series has an ARAI certified fuel efficiency of 14.02 kmpl. It is equipped with all new transmission (5MT 320) which facilitates effortless gear shifting. 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.
Speaking at the introduction of the new H-Series Xylo, Pravin Shah, Chief Executive, Automotive Division, M&M Ltd. said, “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 H-Series offers a range of variants starting with the H4 (with ABS option), H8 (with ABS & Airbag option) and fully loaded feature packed H9 version which includes features like Voice Command Technology (VCT), Cruise Control, Digital Drive Assist System, etc. The new H-Series starts at an attractive price of Rs 8.23 lakh (ex showroom Mumbai, BSIV variant). The Xylo H-Series will be available in one new colour — Dolphin Grey, (for H8 & H9) apart from being available in 5 other attractive colours.
