Come Diwali Mahindra will be launching its smallest offering yet, the mini-Xylo compact MPV. The mini-Xylo has been extensively camouflaged for months now, but in this new spy shot its appears to bare it all doing test rounds,indicating it is close to being production ready.
Mahindra is expected to price the mini-Xylo in the Rs. 5-7 lakh bracket, competing directly with the Premier RiO. The Premier RiO now is powered by the 1.3-litre Multijet Fiat engine is priced at Rs. 6.7 lakhs (ex-showroom, Pune). Mahindra has to be competetive with the price, the mini-Xylo to be priced at around Rs. 6.5 lakhs (ex-showroom, Pune).
Even though the Premier RiO with the Fiat engine is a good offering, it still lacks the fit and finish and expect Mahindra to use this to their advantage. Mahindra will defainitely price the Mini Xylo aggressively to ensure that its a runaway success just like the XUV 500.
