Mahindra recently released its products BS6 variants of the KUV100 NXT and Scorpio. This has retired some of its aging versions around the same time. The catalog includes such versions as the Xylo and Verito. Two diesel engines sold the Xylo: a 2.2-liter mHawk and a 2.5-liter mDI CRDe. While the 2.2-liter diesel engine produced 120PS/280Nm, the 2.5-liter unit performance figures were 95PS/218Nm. Both engines were mated to a manual gearbox with 5 speeds. The NuvoSport was provided by Mahindra with a 1.5 liter diesel engine that produced 100PS and 240Nm.
It has been delivered either with 5-speed MT or 5-speed AMT. On the other side, Renault’s 1.5-liter diesel engine, which churned out 65PS and 160Nm of torque mated to a 5-speed manual, gave the Verito and Verito Feel.
Although the NuvoSport was a sub-4 m SUV and rivaled the likes of Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Ford EcoSport, and the Tata Nexon, Mahindra substituted the Xylo with the TUV300 +. The Verito rivaled the likes of the Toyota Etios (discontinued) and other similarly priced sub-4 m sedans like Maruti Suzuki Dzire and Honda Amaze, while the Verito Feel went up against the Maruti Suzuki Swift and Ford Figo.
