Based on spy images, the Mahindra Quanto facelift has been rendered by Autocar India. Due in 2016, the Quanto facelift will feature an all-new front fascia on the outside, apart from subtly reworked sides and a redesigned rear end. Based on the render, the front fascia can be characterised by new LED “eyebrows” that sit atop the newly designed headlamps, which are bridged by an evolution of the signature toothy grille with chrome inserts.
The new front bumper could feature a large, trapezoidal air dam like the one shown in the render, which is flanked by circular fog lamps nestling inside rectangular crevices. The sides will purportedly benefit from body cladding, while the rear end is expected to get new tail lamps, and the tail gate mounted spare wheel could receive a new cover. Inside, the Quanto facelift is expected to offer an upgraded infotainment system, along with a newly designed dashboard.
The Quanto facelift is expected to be powered by the TUV300’s mHawk80 three-cylinder diesel engine, which develops 84 bhp and 230 Nm of torque, while delivering 18.49 km/l on the TUV300. Also on the offing could be the automated manual transmission (AMT) which is available on the TUV300. The Quanto presently uses a three-cylinder, 1.5-liter, mHawk diesel engine, which is a hacked version of the Xylo’s engine. Mahindra could début the Quanto facelift at the Auto Expo 2016.
