Quanto is among the most sought after SUV’s in India, engineered by the renowned Indian based auto enterprise Mahindra. The company is designing a new Quanto model with the innovative automated manual transmission (AMT) technology. The design structure of the car is retained, and the only change is the fitment of AMT gearbox.
The car was a sight of attraction at 2014 Delhi Auto Expo, and the upgrades are concentrated on elevated levels of technology such as regenerative braking, which converts kinetic energy into potential energy. The impact of regenerative braking is increased mileage consumption; about 40 litre of fuel is conserved. The new Quanto AMT is a hot upcoming launch, the whole country is waiting for it, it got its share of exclusiveness, let’s go over some intriguing details of the car.
One look at the front of Quanto AMT and the resemblance is strikingly similar to Xylo. Mahindra has thrown Xylo inspiration on Quanto AMT. The car will have a fresh radiator grille that will highlight the homely nature of the vehicle. The raided headlights bring out the trendy nature of the vehicle and there is a piece of sharp lines that flows to the hood, elevating the impactful design. The styling of front bumper is minimalistic, the dimension of the front windshield is wide and the view from inside is great.
Quanto AMT is a sub four meter car, and there is a spare wheel fitted on the tail door. Reports state that the inner space is going to be abundant and the quality of materials are superior to Xylo, the nature of materials stuffed into the car is parallel to the current model, the air con vents are covered with sparkling chrome, and the shape of knobs and buttons is the same as its predecessor. The architecture of instrument panel is simple yet elegant. Mahindra has decided to use a digital drive system and the driveability power is better than Xylo and the handling effect is easier as well. There is a small screen that provides relevant information that eases driving burden such as current speed in relation to exterior temperature, distance covered and average fuel consumption.
Mahindra will incorporate the forthcoming Quanto AMT with the same engine as the standard vehicle. It will run on an efficient 1.5 litre 3 cylinder mCR100 power train fitted with twin stage turbo charger. The mill generates 240Nm and 100bhp. The new transmission fitting is five speed AMT and the other system is five speed manual transmission. The insertion of AMT gearbox is a pioneering technology that is gaining popularity lately. The easiness of this system stems from the incorporation of two pedals, a recipe of an ideal automatic transmission car. The electronic shifting of gears happens with the aid of hydraulic accentuators, that calibrates accurate shift gear ratios and engine speed.
Quanto has been a desirable car for years; the introduction of AMT car will make it all the more enviable. It is the new car of the season that will provide occupants with first rate comfort and drive encounter. It costs Rs 6.5 to 8 lakhs.
