Cons: Not happy with the stock Music system it offers. for the cost of a H8 version you need a better sound system.
I own a Mahindra Xylo 2015. My story started with Mahindra Scorpio my first brand new vehicle an SUV in 2009, amazing presence and amazing performance, but it lacked the leg room I always wanted. After 5 years I sold it and I am a big fan of Mahindra as a brand so after a lot of research and waiting for the refreshed and improved Xylo I finally got myself a Mahindra Xylo. Trust me Xylo is a Breed of its Kind, don't compare it with Scorpio but yes Xylo has its own charm and I am happy with it.
I use to do my research in Dubai since I work here, I came down on my vacation and got my Xylo I really had to wait for it due to the delivery issues. I must say Amazing space and plush interiors, good viewing and confident position for driving, not at all tiring for driver or the passenger. I drove it from MUM to KERELA and no break down, no tiring journey its amazing specially the flat bed seats they are a boon. In fact I drove it in the rains and also used the emergency breaks at 120 km/h and indeed the ABS acts fast and without any delay the vehicle reduced the speed well and came to a halt. There is nothing I dislike in the Xylo. Its made by an Indian Manufacturer and its also sold internationally so I guess that itself is a big achievement. People criticize it for its Tall vehicle stance. Let me mention don't expect to drive a SUV / MUV like a sedan, its a stupid mind of people to do so. Every CAR / MUV / SUV has a standard of its own and it has been launched after a lot of test. So the more you have the sense of a vehicle the better you understand it and the better you understand it the better you control.
I love Everything from ABS, Interiors, Comfort, Handling etc... In fact everything of the Xylo impresses me. Anytime better than the Innova as people compare it to the innova but trust me its better than the innova just have a test drive and you will love the xylo, when I say test drive, it should be an actual test not just a normal drive.
When I test drove the Xylo I made a 360 degree turn on a roundabout 4 times at the speed of 40km/h fully loaded with my family and the sales person, I was impressed no one moved inside everyone inside were comfortable. As I was driving the car it seemed planted and well designed keeping a lot of things in mind. I don't drive the car much but I am an adventures person. I have a driver who drives it for my family while I am in the Dubai. He hated the Xylo as it seem it had issues but is amazed with the new Xylo as its not as it was. I have never driven the older version of Xylo but I must say people who criticize it please drive the new Xylo and see. Always Drive safe and use your seatbelts.
