Mahindra’ Quanto is all set to nurture a facelift in the upcoming months. This facelift, as the company states, will have a fresh appeal with an air-scooped new hood. The face-lift will also include a revamped front grille, front bumpers, fog and headlamps. Although there will be a new set of alloy wheels fixed into the body, the side profile will be untouched. Roof rails will be disappearing. And tail lamps will be uniquely styled to garner an LED-centric touch-up.
Not to sideline the interiors of the Quanto, as this is also staged for a minor facelift. The dashboard design will be a replica of its previous version however it gets some minor upgrades. A Bluetooth connection and new audio system, which are today’s necessities, will also be incorporated into this revamped machine. Minor upgrades do include new steering wheel and some others that are merely cosmetic in form and effect.
Although the maker of Quanto has taken necessary steps to adopt minor changes on the vehicle, its underpinnings are certainly the major upgrade which will make a lot of difference to the buyers. This mega vehicle is also graced with some fine tuning imbibed in the suspension to increase the firmness of the solid SUV. The all-new Quanto’s powerful under currents have been heightened to give it a high powered and fast speed stability. The Quanto will now be graced with a solid automated manual transmission or AMT, optimally combined with a 1.5-litre three-cylinder diesel engine. This diesel engine is suggested to bolster a strong drive to this mega unit giving it an ability to zoom up with ease a 98bhp of power.
The alliance of Mahindra and SsangYong has given the Quanto an upgraded engine. The development team of M&M is said to have tried and tested six new engines being developed. Although the company is not going to vary its price range, customers could experience a minor of Rs 5,000-7,000 in their Quanto. There is a good demand of export especially for Mahindra’s product portfolio. Needless to say, the original Quanto did make waves in export market. With a new variant coming out that is injected with lot more power and color, M&M is looking ahead and is sure to crack the export charts without hassles. The vehicle is designed so as to lure the attention of both domestic and international customers.
The company did indulge in the testing of its mHawk 2.2-litre engine. There is a lot of promise shown by this engine due to the mechanism displayed by it for gracing 4×4 ability. Mahindra is keeping Europe on the radar for exceling in its export distribution. The new Bolero will be soon introduced and could be an internal competition to this mega vehicle chartbuster. Mahindra is hearing some good music in its ears as the pre-launch reviews are optimistic with lots of promises to be delivered by this SUV in its segment. Buyers have crowded the corridors of their retailers to purchase this on its entry into the market.
