A new prototype of Mahindra's Quanto facelift has been spied while undergoing test runs in Pune. Mahindra has been testing the facelifted avatar of Quanto for quite a while now, and the model is expected to debut at Auto Expo 2016.
Like earlier, the latest spy shots of Indian Autos Blog also show the Quanto facelift in its disguised form, obstructing the key details of the model. However, the images show the new headlight design of the model. The Mahindra Quanto facelift, which is also known as Canto and Cresto, will adhere to the current design of the model, with minor tweaks in the front and rear profiles. From what we know, the Quanto facelift will come with a newly-styled front fascia with front grille and bumper. The new avatar of the Quanto facelift is also expected to get new alloys.
As far as the interior of new Quanto is concerned, it is likely to be the same as the current model, but with additional features like multi-function steering wheel.
Under the skin, the new Quanto facelift is expected to remain the same as the current model and is likely to continue with the 1.5-litre three-cylinder diesel engine, which can pump 100bhp at 3,750rpm and 240Nm of torque at 1,600-2,800rpm. There have also been rumours that the model is likely to get improved suspension and driving dynamics. Rumours are also rife that the Quanto facelift could also come equipped with an AMT box.
UV-maker Mahindra will open its 2016 journey with the launch of the KUV100 in India on 15 January. The KUV100, a mini-SUV, will debut the company's new engine mFalcon. Under the hood, Mahindra KUV100 will include petrol 1.2-litre mFalcon G80 and 1.2-litre mFalcon D75 diesel engines.
