Now here is a brief comparison of both the people movers,please correct me for any wrong points and share your experiences too at the full.
Firstly lets compare both the UVs in terms of design(exterior,interior etc etc). Front:-
As we can see in the above image,the following points strike me:- Innova:
1)Looks sleeker and truly looks like a winner.
2)Looks less on toughness as compared to Xylo.
3)Has a lower stance which can easily be noticed.
4)Style statement is still above the Xylo,and headlights,grille and foglamps feel to be perfectly placed. Xylo:
1)There is an aggression in the look,but its hidden somewhere.
2)What message does that odd looking nose want to convey?
3)The raised stance really looks good.
4)Looks quite basic and always you see its front you feel that something is missing.
5)Look at those wide tyres and you will understand the intentions of the UV,it looks meaner and really has a mean glare too. Side profile:- Innova:
1)The sleeker look simply starts from front and goes on till back.
2)There are some small curves which fades slowly(wheel arches) on the body.
3)Those alloys really suits the personality of the car but if they would have been looking somewhat more heavier then we'd have liked it even more.
4)Note that sloping roof towards the rear,it can give you th impression of a grown up hatchback.
5)Don't you miss a foot-step on the sides or side skirts would look better there. Xylo:
1)Its looks have the aggression increasing as you go towards the rear.Just have a look at it,it have no cuts and curves,only a butch look.
2)Right from the ORVMs,you will find that everything suits the car at its best.
3)Look at those alloys,they are really great(the above pic has steel rims,so you need an another pic to look at those alloys).
4)The roof rails are looking great and add too much to the look of the UV.
5)No rear sloping roof,hence quite good headroom even on the last row.
6)But front looks a bit too much sloppy. Rear:- Innova:
1)The new tail lights and new rear bumper has enhanced the appeal.
2)As already mentioned,the smartness prevails in the styling,but if you compare it with the Xylo's rear then you will feel something missing.Actually it missed the high stance of a UV.
3)The Innova looks more wider than it is due to this lower stance.
4)If you see from back,you will find that tyres must have been wider too.
5)If the rear wiper would have been mounted on the rear glass(like ni Xylo) then it would have looked better. Xylo:
1)I really feel its rear as looking a bit cumbersome.
2)the high stance is okay,but it makes the UV look less wider than it is.
3)The tail lamps are great and thoughtfully designed with indicators on the top,as a result its easy for high seated bus and truck drivers to see them.
4)The Mahindra logo looks quite good and the mid placing of the rear wiper enhances the appeal.
5)the rear bumper with steps to enter inside looks really butch and the added illuminators add to practicality.
Exteriors have been discussed and I feel that the Xylo is sporting quite a butch and tougher look as compared to the Innova while the Innova has a more sleeker look and has smaller panel gaps too.Still I feel that Innova looks better at the exterior.
