LED eyebrows like Scorpio could be introduced in the Quanto
Mahindra is working on the launch of the S101 currently and the entire focus is on the new small car which help the car maker enter in the compact segment. Another product Mahindra has been testing is the facelifted Quanto, launch of which has been delayed as the focus was on TUV 300 and S101 or XUV 100.
From the Spy pictures the shape remains unchanged and the UV gets new headlamps with LEDs similar to that found on the Scorpio, new grille and front bumper. The rear remains largely unchanged. Interiors could get some dose of new features and design elements similar to that found on the new Scorpio and Xylo.
The top variant will get Mahindra’s touchscreen infotainment system with voice command.
The Quanto facelift will be powered by the new mHAWK 80 three-cylinder diesel engine that produces 85bhp and 230Nm of torque offered on the TUV 300. Gearbox options are expected to include a five-speed manual as well as a five-speed AMT similar to the TUV 300.
The Quanto facelift could make its debut at the 2016 Auto Expo and could be launched soon after. Mahindra will be launching the S101 or XUV 100 in the third week of January just before the 2016 Auto Expo.
With Quanto facelift, Mahindra will have 3 new products to offer customers in the sub 4 segment.
