Mahindra MPV Spied will replace the Xylo, is very much like the Innova Crysta in design rather than a tall SUV, could be equipped with a monocoque chassis
Mahindra is known in the country for making MPV, SUV and crossovers in each segment. It is also known now to make electric cars as well. While both categories will see a huge change in the next two years or so, it is the MPV segment which Mahindra needs to revamp extensively. Though the Xylo has done well it hasn’t able to dent the sales of the Innova and its predecessor. The Japanese MPV on the other hand is selling almost 10,000 units a month which is massive considering the size and price of the MPV. The sheer monopoly along with the only demanding SUV in the segment can be only dented by another player who can undercut the pricing of the vehicle and offer even more in many area.
Looks like Mahindra has taken the charge in their hands and finally we can see the Mahindra MPV taking shape. Spotted testing in Chennai again, the MPV is radically different from the past MPV that the Mumbai based manufacturer has created. The short bonnet, the MPV design in which can we see the length is longer and the roof is lower, but the MPV sticks to the ground even more. All of these things take us to believe that this could not be the ladder on frame chassis equipped car.
For the first time we could see a monocoque construction MPV, which will lighter, more efficient, better to drive and maintain. A trump card that Mahindra used with the XUV could be seen in this MPV as well, taking the manufacturer sales and name to new height as it will offer everything, but in a different avatar that will offer the customer something really forward to cut a check for. We expect it to be powered by the same 2.0 litre motor which should be just shy of 120 BHP when it comes specs and have around 300 Nm of torque. Also expect it to be feature loaded, offer higher quality and under cut the Innova Crysta drastically.
