Overdrive has revealed that the market name of the Mahindra Quanto facelift is the Mahindra Nuvosport. This is the second model in the company’s entire product portfolio that does not have a name that ends with the alphabet ‘O’, after the Mahindra Thar.

The Mahindra Nuvosport gets a new front fascia and a host of first-in-segment features.

The Mahindra Nuvosport gets a thoroughly revised front fascia, featuring new headlamps, isolated LED DRLs, smaller grille section, larger air-dam, new turn indicators, new fog lamps and a higher-positioned bonnet. The side profile is enhanced with new alloy wheels and lower-body cladding. The rear end gets the same lamps but with a black tint, a spoiler and new badging.

The interior is largely the same as that on the outgoing model. The Nuvosport will be offered with some first-in-segment features like eight-way adjustable seats with lumbar support, cruise control and a 2-DIN infotainment system with a touchscreen display.
