Currently in India, Mahindra XUV 5oo is one of the top five highest selling SUVs. With a top end AWD model made available at an attractive price of around Rs. 14 lakh, the XUV has received an overwhelming response from SUV hungry Indian car buyers! Hwoever, today Mahindra & Mahindra may find itself in a unqiue position as one of its upcoming cars is expected to find flavor in the same segment.
This to-be-launched car is the Mahindra Quanto (Xylo Mini). Expected to be launched later this year, the Quanto with its tag line “small happy legs” is a spacious mini SUV and comes with an attractive price tag of around Rs. 6lakh (Approx). Much like its cousin, the XUV 5oo, the Mini Xylo will have a diesel engine with a power of 68 BHP. True, it won’t be as powerful as the 140BHP output engine fitted in the XUV 5oo, the compacy SUV is expected to appeal to buyers who can afford spacious sedans for their family.

The Verdict: With a start price of almost Rs. 11 lakh ex-showroom, the Mahindra XUV 5oo is currently one of the cheapest SUVs in the country. Despite its low price tag, the car has a range of standard features that its rival brands don’t offer. So the biggest advantage of the XUV 5oo is its pricing and its features. The Mahindra Mini Xylo is the poor cousin of the XUV and a trimmer version of the Xylo. It’s spacious, will be available in both, petrol and diesel variants and should be able to give entry level sedans like the Maruti Swift Dzire among others a run for their money.
