New batch of spy-shots show that the seven-seater configuration could be optional and not a standard feature.
Mahindra’s much-awaited mini-Xylo finally reveals its name – the Quanto. The information came to light through a series of spy shots posted by our friends at Team-Bhp, in which the Mahindra compact MPV proudly wears the Quanto nameplate while posing for what looks like a photo shoot.
Most of the styling details are similar to what we had revealed earlier – the stubby taillights, the Bolero-inspired spare wheel cover, the slab sides and the grille that comes from the older Xylo. The interesting bit though is that the seven-seater configuration that we have been speaking about could be an optional package. OnCars reader Nikhil Deshpande sent us images of yet another Quanto test car (this time a light-blue coloured vehicle). He saw the car inside out and mentioned that it did not have a third row of seats, while another, slightly older test car did have two side-folding seats in the boot. That has us believing that the Quanto could be available in both – five and seven seater configurations.
The Mahindra Quanto is expected to be launched in India in September 2012 and will be priced quite aggressively. We are being told that the base price of the Mahindra Quanto could start below Rs 5-lakh. With its sub-four-meter length benefiting from the tax cuts and the major component and platform sharing with the Xylo, the Quanto or the mini-Xylo can very well achieve a groundbreaking price tag. Stay tuned as we bring you more information on the Mahindra Quanto as we inch closer to its launch.
