There are two versions of the Xylo pickup, one for the domestic market and another for the export markets. Our pals at Motorbeam spied a double cab pickup version of the Mahindra Xylo testing on the Mumbai-Pune expressway. It has a much better road presence thanks to a more uniform construction, chrome inserts, load bay accentuated with a stroke over the wheel arch and what we'd call designer tail lamps considering this vehicle is used to haul cement bags and water cans.
The domestic Genios have a flat load bay and a sober rear profile. They prefer function over form and to cut costs, it misses out on panache. There is no point in introducing it as a lifestyle product in India because the Scorpio Getaway already has that part of the market covered. As a commercial carrier the Genio and the Bolero are doing exceptionally well for Mahindra.
The double cab variant is being tested for the export markets. There is a huge demand for such vehicles in Asian and African markets. If powered by the same 2.2-liter mHawk motor from the Scorpio, the Xylo double cab variant will produce 120 bhp of power and 290 Nm of torque.
