Last product launch of this financial year for Mahindra.
The Mahindra Quanto facelift (Mahindra Canto/Mahindra Cresto) has been spotted testing beside Marina Beach, Chennai, courtesy of IAB reader, Manoj Prabakaran. A closer look reveals the final design of the front-end.
The exterior will be completely redesigned, featuring cues from the Mahindra Scorpio for a design that is closer to that of 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.
The engine lineup could drop the 1.5-liter mCR100 diesel engine with the more fuel efficient mHawk80 diesel engine 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.
