Launch on April 4.
Dealers have started accepting pre-orders for the Mahindra Nuvosport, which is confirmed to launch on April 4. The minimum amount being accepted is INR 10,000. It should be noted that this is being done at the dealer-end, and the FAQs section of the NuvoSport’s website states that bookings officially open on April 4.
The Nuvosport will be available in four grades spread across six different variants: N4, N4+, N6, N6 AMT, N8 and N8 AMT. An ABS could be standard across the range, while dual airbags are optional in the N4 grade. The top-end N8 grade will feature steering-mounted buttons, AVN touchscreen infotainment system, alloy wheels and tilt steering adjustability, as seen in spyshots
Compared to the outgoing Quanto, the Mahindra Nuvosport features an all new front end with a more aggressive grille flanked by headlamps, separate LED DRLs, contoured hood with an intake, stylized front bumper with round foglamps, and a silver skid plate. The Nuvosport adds black plastic body cladding, while the rear end gets clear lens taillights, roof spoiler and new spare wheel cover.
According to a leaked spec sheet, the Quanto-replacement will retain the 1.5-liter three cylinder mHawk engine, which produces 100 PS and 240 Nm of torque. An AMT will be offered as optional, while a 5-speed manual is standard.
