News and spy pics have been pouring in ever since Mahindra first announced that it is busy developing a mini-Xylo to take on the likes of Premier Rio and Renault Duster. Now that the Duster is here, can the mini Xylo be far behind? Hardly a few months away from its launch, a really important piece of info has emerged about the upcoming mini MPV.

While we had expected Mahindra to use a downsized version of the popular 2.2-litre, direct injection diesel motor that powers the entire line up of upmarket Mahindra UVs, namely the Xylo, Scoprio and XUV500, what has taken us by a pleasant surprise is the fact that forced induction on the 3 cylinder 1500cc motor is courtesy a twin turbo set-up that enables the engine to pump out a healthy power output of 100BHP@3750 RPM and generate a max. torque of 240 Nm between1600-1800 RPM. The powerplant of the mini Xylo is BS V compliant and the DOHC 3 cylinder engine tips the scales at merely 185 kgs. The mini Xylo should have a fuel efficiency figure of about 18 kmpl.
