Mahindra isn’t just planning to change certain features of the Quanto. It is also planning to change the name of the car and give it a new identity.
The company has imported new components for this car from South Korea under the name, ‘Canto’. Interestingly, the same date contains the code U215, which was given to the Quanto facelift project. The Quanto wasn’t well received by the Indian market due to its tall body design, which didn’t look proportionate. With the new Canto name, the company might want to leave its old failed brand behind and start the sales of this new MUV anew. However, we don’t think that will make a big difference because the name that has been chosen now, sounds the exact same.
Mahindra’s subsidiary, Ssangyong is based out of South Korea and it looks like the Indian manufacturer is importing few front bumpers for the Quanto facelift from there. Recently, the interior of the facelift model has been spied which showed the new beige and grey theme on the inside. While the company’s current focus is the facelifted XUV500, expect the facelifted Quanto to makes its way to the Indian market during the festive season.
