The Mahindra Quanto might be the first mainstream contender in the sub-four metre SUV segment but it’s more of a makeshift arrangement until a proper compact SUV (like the S101) is ready.

The Quanto and the Verito also now come with offers.

The instant SUV has been taken aback by the low pricing of the Ford EcoSport. In fact, its not only the Quanto but all premium hatchbacks and compact sedans are also facing the heat from Ford’s aggressively priced mini SUV. Mahindra dealers prepared special editions of the Quanto to keep it looking fresh on the showroom floors.

Mahindra Quanto offer

In an attempt to counteract the threat of 30,000 bookings, Mahindra is now offering discounts of up to Rs. 44,000 for the Quanto. It’s to be noted that the UV major had increased the price of its entire portfolio only recently.

The price slash doesn’t alter the ex-showroom price of the Quanto. The SUV is offered with free insurance which can get as high as Rs. 30,000 depending on the variant. Mahindra also offers an exchange bonus of Rs. 10,000 and a corporate/government discount of Rs. 6,000.

Mahindra Quanto rear three quarters
The Quanto is a minimized Xylo that meets regulations framed for small cars.

The Quanto is a shortened Xylo which is powered by a 1.5 litre three cylinder mCR100 engine. The engine which is essentially a chopped version of the 2.2-litre mHawk motor produces 100PS. Despite being a sub-four metre vehicle, the Quanto can accommodate seven passengers, thanks to rear jump seats.

The price range of the Mahindra Quanto is Rs. 5.99 lakh to Rs. 7.83 lakh while the EcoSport is spread out from 5.59 lakh to 8.99 lakh (all the prices ex-showroom Delhi).

We can expect most other manufacturers to offer discounts and offers for products that overlap, in price, with the EcoSport.
