There are multiple minor cosmetic upgrades on the Quanto, but it also gets a major upgrade with its underpinnings. Some fine tuning has been done to the suspension to improve the stability of the compact SUV. The Quanto's driving dynamics has been enhanced and it has much better high-speed stability. The Quanto will also get an AMT (automated manual transmission) that will come mated to the same 1.5-litre three-cylinder diesel engine, which will produce about 98bhp of power. The engine has updated as Mahindra and Ssangyong have been working together and have developed six new engines. the pricing of the Quanto will not be changed, maybe a bump of Rs 5,000-10,000.
Mahindra is looking at export markets with the Quanto and so it has been testing the 2.2-litre mHawk for exports with 4x4 ability. This will be majorly exported to the European market. Mahindra will be introducing the new Bolero too, click here to see the interiors of the new Bolero.
