Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.
Features a thoroughly reworked exterior.
New spyshots of the Mahindra Quanto facelift (rumored to be called Mahindra Canto and Mahindra Cresto) has surfaced online, courtesy of Fly-Wheel. The updated sub-4m offering is expected to debut at the Auto Expo 2016 on February 3.
As seen in numerous spyshots, the exterior will draw inspiration from the Mahindra Scorpio, and feature a design that looks closer to a typical SUV than the outgoing Quanto. It comes with new headlights and daytime running lights, revised grille, a hood scoop, re-profiled front bumper and new taillamps.
Older spyshots have revealed the the updated Quanto will have a beige-finished interior with a new multifunction steering wheel, black center console, an armrest and new dials for the instrument panel.
Mahindra could replace the 1.5-liter mCR100 diesel engine with the more fuel efficient mHawk80 diesel engine sourced from the TUV300. In its boxy cousin, the mHawk 80 engine develops 84 hp and 230 Nm of torque. The Quanto facelift will offer a 5-speed manual and the autoSHIFT 5-speed AMT, which has already been confirmed for production.
