With a commercial vehicle wing rich in creativity and products, Mahindra has launched yet another vehicle that will make you sit up and take notice - a dual cab Genio which is aimed at small and medium entrepreneurs. We thought the dual cab Genio was just a Genio with rear seats. Turns out that's just the beginning.
Priced at Rs. 5.46 lakh (ex-showroom Karnataka, BS3) for the base version the 1,100 kg payload Genio dual cab has features like 2 din Music System, Air conditioner, Power Windows, central locking, keyless entry, door trims for housing bottles and magazines and immobilizer that commercial vehicles are denied of.
Radial tubeless tyres, brake force distribution, Oil change interval of 20,000 km, ELR seat belts and electronic headlamp leveling device are some other interesting and thoughtful features on the pickup.

The Genio DC seats five people and is powered by a mDI CRDe 4 Cylinder engine that output 75 HP power and 220 Nm torque. With this might, the Genio can accelerate till 120kph. The Xylo was named Project Ingenio from which Genio is derived. The Xylo has given rise to two pickups and a 5 seater compact Xylo is expected in the next few weeks.
Reports in the past confirm that Mahindra is ready with the mHawk variant (Scorpio's 2.2L engine) and a 4WD variant has also been caught on test.
What else can one expect on the Xylo platform?
