Mahindra has been testing the facelifted avatar of its Quanto on Indian roads for quite some time now, and a new prototype of the model has been spied again undergoing testing in the country. The interesting bit is the latest set of spy shots of Quanto confirm the model will come equipped with automated manual transmission (AMT).
Caught on camera by the folks at CarWale, the latest spy shots show the cabin of the model with AMT. As we have known for some time, in terms of style and design, the Quanto facelift is likely to remain mostly the same as the current model, except for tweaks in the front and rear bumpers.
The Quanto facelift, supposedly called Canto, is still seen camouflaged. However, previous spy shots indicated there will be a newly styled front fascia of the model with front grille and bumper. The new avatar of the Quanto facelift is also expected to get new alloys.
Under the hood, the new Quanto facelift is expected to be the same 1.5-litre three-cylinder diesel engine, which can pump in 100bhp at 3,750rpm and 240Nm of torque between 1,600-2,800rpm and is likely to get improved suspension and driving dynamics.
As for the interiors, the facelifted Quanto is likely to be the same as the current model, but with additional features like multi-function steering wheel. The Quanto facelift is expected to be launched in India in early 216.
