A fresh batch of images of the Mahindra Quanto facelift has emerged online, this time showing the test mule with less camouflage. Mahindra has been testing its facelifted avatar of the Quanto in India for quite some time now, and is expected to debut it at Auto Expo 2016 in Greater Noida.

Caught on camera by Indian Autos Blog, the prototype of the Quanto has shed its bulky camouflage quite a bit, revealing the outline of the model. As far as the changes are concerned, the new Quanto is expected to get restyled front and rear bumpers.

Expect the model to flaunt a newly-styled front fascia with front grille and bumper. The new avatar of the Quanto is also expected to get new alloys. Inside the cabin, the Quanto facelift likely to be the same as the current model, but with additional features like multi-function steering wheel. In its new avatar, Mahindra Quanto seems to have taken styling cues from its siblings Scorpio and Xylo.

Powering the new model of the Quanto will be the same 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.

Mahindra, which recently launched the KUV100 subcompact SUV in India, is likely to launch the Quanto facelift in the current fiscal. Although there has been no official word on the name of the new Quanto, rumour has it that Mahindra will name it Canto or Cresto.
