So, a new Mahindra is incoming, with a name that surprisingly, doesn’t end with an ‘O’. It’s called the NuvoSport, and will replace the ageing Quanto.  To be launched on 4th April 2016, the sub-4 meter long NuvoSport will be based on the same new generation platform as the Scorpio. The NuvoSport will be powered by a new, 1.2-litre petrol engine, dubbed the mHawk 100, while the existing 1.5-litre, three cylinder diesel engine will give it company. The petrol engine will come with the option of a 5-speed manual or an automated manual transmission (auto shift).  Here’s a closer look at the compact crossover’s design:

NuvoSport Headlamp

 

The completely revised front fascia features new headlamps with independent DRL strips, or illuminated eyebrows. 

NuvoSport Grille

The NuvoSport’s new fascia also gets a new trapezoidal grille with the usual toothy slats, along with a hood scoop.

NuvoSport Front Bumper

The new front bumper is characterised by a massive grille with mesh inserts, while the faux skid plate adds to the pseudo-SUV look.
