The Mahindra NuvoSport was launched earlier this month, at prices starting from INR 7.35 lakhs (ex-showroom Thane). While it is positioned as some sort of ‘sportier’ (but definitely more urbane) alternative to the TUV300, the ‘modified Quanto’ appearance didn’t go down too well with many. Well, the digital realm has come to the rescue, and digital artist Meet Singh has envisioned this super NuvoSport.
Modifications to the NuvoSport’s fascia include a new grille with mesh inserts, along with a heavily redesigned front bumper. Meet has also added a custom front lip down below, while the standard headlamp nacelles now host projector units. The standard wheel arches have been digitally bumped up to accommodate the massive ADV.1 wheels, while new fender flares and body cladding go into place. Sharper side sills have also been incorporated, and all things chrome have been banished.
The roof and pillars are coated in contrast coloured matte black, and the fake bonnet scoop from the original design has been cleaned up. The interiors haven’t been left alone too, with custom black leather upholstery on the seats, as well as a customized insignia digitally stitched on each head rest. In standard from, the NuvoSport seats seven, has features like a 6.2″ touchscreen infotainment system, Micro Hybrid Technology, Intellipark Reverse Assist, dual airbags, ABS with EDB and more. Power comes from a 1.5-litre diesel engine good for 110 bhp in Power mode and 71 bhp in Eco mode. Though a 5-speed manual transmission is standard, an autoSHIFT AMT is also available in the higher variants.
