Photographs of the Xylo derivatives - Genio single cab and mini Xylo - testing on ice have emerged online. Spy shots of the mini Xylo mounted on a truck have appeared on many websites but the location of capture wasn't clear. If you look carefully at the image, the mini Xylo is mounted above the Genio on the hauler.

With a modicum of camo and some thoughtfully placed tape, the prototypes give rise to many questions among which is Is Mahindra developing a 4WD system for mini Xylo? We are aware that the Xylo 4WD is production ready and test mules were spotted a long while back. Mahindra is waiting for the right time to launch the 4WD variant, a compulsory addition in countries which experience snowfall.

The mini Xylo could be launched in the next few weeks according to newspaper reports with large cabin space, Xylo level comfort for five passengers and the fuel economy of a three-cylinder diesel engine. Rumor has it that the price will be at par with B segment hatchbacks. We've posted 20 spy photographs showing different angles of the mini Xylo last month.

At the launch of the Genio, Mahindra officials said the dual cab version will follow shortly. We have caught the dual cab Xylo on test a couple of times and other than an added row of seats and doors, there's nothing new in that.
