Mahindra Quanto facelift (Mahindra Canto) – IAB Rendering
It goes without saying that I’m a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.
To launch before the end of this financial year.
Based on recent spyshots of the facelifted Mahindra Quanto (Mahindra Canto), IAB’s graphic artist, Shoeb R Kalania has worked on a new render of the sub-4m crossover.
As seen in the render and several spyshots, the front-end of the new Quanto will be thoroughly facelifted for an all new look, featuring new headlights and daytime running lights, revised grille, a hood scoop and a re-profiled front bumper. Unlike the MPV-esque design of the outgoing model, the new Quanto will adopt a butch front-end that looks closer to an SUV.
Inside, 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, as revealed by spyshots.
Under the hood, Mahindra is likely to drop the 1.5-liter mCR100 diesel engine for the more fuel efficient mHawk80 diesel engine from the TUV300, which 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.
