Mahindra mini ready for launch
Normal 0 false false false EN-IN X-NONE X-NONE ...
Mahindra just does not want to stop and
rest on its past laurels. The recently launched XUV 500 has already been sold
like hot cakes and even the bookings have been stopped for the car due to heavy
consumer demand. In this situation instead of walking away happily to the banks
the company is planning to launch yet another trend setter called the mini Xylo
based on the Xylo.
The company is in fact on a huge expansion
spree and the launch of the Xylo is looked upon as foray into the small car
segment and entry level SUV segment. The car is expected to make it to the
roads by the end of November 2011. The car price is also set to create some
huge ripples in the market with a starting price of just 4 lakhs for the base
variant. The cheaper version of the Xylo will be though of the same quality but
will lack on some high end features of the standard Xylo. The car will still
carry the same finesse and charisma.
The cost of the car is expected to give
some stiff competition not only to the likes of suv but also to some of the
hatch backs like the Maruti Swift. The car will also be adorned with some
superb interiors and exteriors ready to make any one take immediate liking for
the car. The looks, the stance of the car and the strong build are some of the
key highlights. The huge front is however a common sight these days. The alloy
wheels and dials are something that could have been avoided.
The car also has a unique tilt-able steering wheel which offers a perfect driving position to driver. The car can easily seat up to five people and also two jump seats for the kids. Some of the key features are the digital driver assist, the wide arm rest for the front row and passenger foot rest along with easy entry and exit.
The car is expected to give a run for the
money to the likes of Maruti Wagon R,
Maruti A-star, Hyundai Santro, Chevrolet beat, Ford Figo, Ford Punto, Maruti
Swift and Hyundai i20. However, one must note that the mini Xylo is a first of
its kind car and as such there is no competition to the vehicle.
The Xylo mini specifications include
Independent Coil Springs, Multi Link Coil Springs for better shock absorbing
and smoother ride. The braking system is front disk type and rear drum type
break. The car is equipped with a 5 speed manual gear. The tyre size for the
Mahindra Xylo Mini measures 215/75 R15.
The Xylo mini for a cheap suv does have most of the features like like
power windows, Remote Fuel Filler, Rear wiper, manually adjustable driver seat
and a rear AC vent that a consumer expects in any car. The car is expected to
target the B+ segment audience who are looking for an entry level car and yet
have some fun at the same time. Overall the car is expected to a grand hit in
