The 1.5-liter diesel engine of the Quanto is unlikely to see drastic changes.

Codenamed U215, Mahindra will inject a new lease of life into the Quanto, which has performed poorly in the market. Taking into account sales performance over the past 6 months, Mahindra sold an average of 55 Quantos each month.

The Indian UV specialist aims to redesign the sub-4 meter Xylo with SUV styling cues, and plans on introducing an automated manual transmission (AMT) for added convenience. The grille, front bumper, hood and headlights will see significant changes, with spyshots having shown LED daytime running lights and a Scorpio-like hood scoop in addition.
