The Mahindra Quanto facelift has been spotted undergoing trials, in Nashik. While the Quanto facelift sticks to the current car’s overall design, it does feature a few cosmetic updates to set it apart from the current car. The test mule sported heavy camouflage at the front and the rear, hinting at the sections which are going to be affected by this facelift.
The new Quanto will get revised headlamps, front grille, bumpers and new alloy wheels for the top-end models. Inside, it will feature a revamped beige-themed interior to give it a premium feel, and a new audio system with Bluetooth and voice recognition system, similar to the one used in the Scorpio. It will also feature the unique ‘Yoga seats’, which allow users to adjust the Quanto’s seats in 36 different combinations for maximum flexibility and convenience.
Mechanically, the new Quanto will retain the 1.5-litre three-cylinder diesel engine, which produces 100bhp and 240Nm of torque. Like the Xylo facelift, the new Quanto is also expected to get a tweaked suspension setup, to improve its diving dynamics.
Reports suggest that the AMT gearbox equipped variant of the Quanto, which Mahindra had showcased at the 2014 Delhi Auto Expo, will be launched in India along with this facelift. We expect the Quanto facelift to be launched in the second half of this year, in a price bracket similar to the current car.
