Mahindra Quanto – Get all the info you need

Mahindra launched the Quanta in 2012 and that time the compact SUV segment in India had just begun to heat up. Mahindra realized the potential of the market and did not wait to manufacture a compact SUV for the Indian roads. Although, Mahindra was in so much hurry that it did not quite think about what they are doing. It just assembled parts borrowed from its other products and built up the Mahindra Quanto- a sub 4 metre compact SUV.

2012 Mahindra Quanto Price

Mahindra did not do anything when it comes to the design of the Quanto because you’d find that it looks very much similar to its elder sibling, the Xylo. Everything seems to be borrowed from the Xylo and assembled together without any alterations. The front end of the Quanto has got the same design philosophy as of the Xylo’s and even the side profile looks the same. The only difference is at the rear end of the Quanto which looks like a chopped off Mahindra Xylo. The placement of the tail lights is up top near the roof of the vehicle. The spare wheel has been placed on the trunk gate itself in order to provide a SUV-ish look to the Quanto. The overall structure of the Quanto feels a toned down variant of the Xylo and is a bit boxy.

Mahindra kept the Xylo alive even in the interiors of the Quanto. Everything is inspired from the Xylo except from the steering wheel which is borrowed from the Mahindra Scorpio. The cabin of the Quanto is very spacious, especially for the front and middle rows occupants. There is ample legroom and headroom for people in the middle row. The windows of the Quanto are big and wide which makes the inside of the vehicle feel even more spacious than it actually is. The last row of the Quanto has jump seats which are made only for small children.

Powering the Quanto is a 1.5 litre, 3 cylinder mCR100 diesel engine which is a toned down version of the one found in the Xylo. The engine produces a max power of 100 PS and a peak torque of 240 Nm. And it is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. Although, the figures sounds pretty decent but the enormous weight of the Quanto puts limits to them. Quanto will take a while to do 0-100 kph. It takes 17 long seconds. Quanto, just like the Xylo, has too much body roll in the corners, something which we expected Mahindra would have taken care of.

Mahindra Quanto is a compact SUV, priced in the range of Rs 7-10 lakhs (Ex showroom), which will fulfil the basic needs of someone who is looking for a spacious and feature-rich vehicle (top end variant) which could prove to be reliable and durable, something which Mahindra is known for. When it comes to practicality Quanto will not let you down. A spacious vehicle with decent looks and a good fuel economy, what more could you ask from it?

Should we expect a Quanto facelift?

Mahindra made an attempt at a sub 4 meter MUV with the Mahindra Quanto. To do this, they took the design inspiration from Xylo and that wasn’t really a good idea. The Xylo was already an unattractive car and the resulting Quanto was even uglier. They are coming up with a new sub 4 meter vehicle which is the S101. It is based on an entirely new platform and will borrow design cues from the attractive Mahindra flagship SUV XUV 500. So we are expecting it to be an attractive car and now the question here is that if they should facelift the Quanto as well.

Mahindra Quanto

The Quanto currently being sold is a decent car if you can live with the looks. It is spacious on the inside and has got decent interiors. It is powered by an impressive 1.5 liter three cylinder turbocharged engine which develops a peak power of 100 bhp. It transmits its power via a five speed manual gearbox. During the Auto Expo 2014 earlier this year, they showcased a new variant of the Mahindra Quanto among other vehicles. This new variant is the automatic version of the Quanto.

The AutoShift gearbox that they have used in this new variant is developed with Ricardo. This is similar to the AMT system we recently saw on the Maruti Suzuki Celerio. It would provide the convenience of an automatic gearbox without adding the hassles. It would also provide performance and efficiency similar to manual transmission. The design is very much similar to the model already available in the market. It still has that bland face and abruptly ending tailgate which looks awkward. It gets the spare wheel on the boot which looks decent but doesn’t suit the small dimension of the vehicle.

The MUV, as we already said is spacious on the inside. The doors are large providing easy entrance and exit. The large cabin also gives you plenty of legroom. The interiors on this AT version are very much similar to the standard car except for the center console. Here the manual stick shifter has been replaced by the AutoShift stick. The lever sits in the right slot which gives the option of N and R. moving it to right will put it in M mode. Then you can push it towards + or – to toggle gears.

You also get a decent level of equipment on the car. You get features like power windows, airbags, ABS, AirCon and alloy wheels. The five speed AutoShift system is controlled by the ECU on this car. It operates on the shift map and senses when the gear ratio needs to be changed. The ratios are shifted by a hydraulic actuator. It hasn’t got a torque convertor which cuts down on weight and simplifies the system. This system can be used as an automatic or manual which gives the user more freedom. This vehicle not only brings this AMT gearbox but also comes with regenerative braking. They will have to market this product right to ensure that it doesn’t face the fate of current Quanto.

Mahindra Quanto Vs Etios Cross – Compact or Cross?

Japanese carmaker Toyota and Indian carmaker Mahindra and Mahindra are tough contenders for position of India’s top SUV manufacturer with models competing with each other in local markets. Though the Quanto was built only a couple of years ago this compact SUV has not created a large impact on markets like its predecessors Scorpio and XUV500 and with launch of Toyota’s Etios Cross a crossover SUV it will have a tough time. The Quanto has a boxlike design with a jeep like layout and four wheel drive option to make it suitable for drives across all terrain. Based on the Mahindra Xylo like platform, Quanto is a five door MPV available in colors of black, beige, brown, red, white and silver. Price range of both models are relative similar as Quanto costs between 7 – 10 lakhs and Toyota Etios Cross is also within same price segment.
