Highlights

February 10, 2014: Mahindra & Mahindra presented the auto gearshift equipped Quanto MPV at the Auto Expo 2014. It comes with a five-speed autoSHIFT transmission, which has been developed for the first time in a compact SUV. It comes with a “regenerative braking” technology in which kinetic energy is recovered through an alternator and stored in the battery.

Overview

Mahindra and Mahindra who is known for manufacturing SUVs for the Indian car bazaar have turned its way a bit. Seeing the demand in the market, Mahindra is ready to tap into the small car market with the shorter version of its most prominent MPV, Mahindra Xylo. The new mini Xylo, codenamed ‘U203’ which was later on christened as Mahindra Quanto is Mahindra’s new armament against the B+ hatchback segment and entry level sedans. Mahindra Quanto also gets the honor of becoming the first ever sub-four-meter MPV in the country. The basic design of the car is pretty similar to Mahindra Xylo which the car is spawned on. The similar ladder-frame body frame is seen in Quanto as well. Under the bonnet, the compact SUV holds an altered version of diesel motor along with same suspension system and analogous interiors. The 1.5L diesel engine here is be coupled with five speed manual gearbox that would pushes the car in delivering an awesome performance on road.

 

The looks of the car are be as appealing as Mahindra Xylo MPV and gives the middle row passenger same happy legs feeling that Xylo offered. Mahindra Quanto borrowed the body-on-ladder chassis from its sibling Xylo and the chassis was compacted suitably to make it fit under the 4 meters in length, which makes the car take advantage of the excise duty subsidy Indian government has allotted to the sub-four meter vehicles. The wheels have also gone smaller to 15” from the 16” wheels seen in Mahindra Xylo MPV. The ride and handling of Mahindra Quanto is  enhanced and would give great acceleration and pickup. The interiors of the new Mahindra Quanto will be comfortable and loaded with numerous advanced features. The car would be able to adjust seven adults with utmost ease. The car might appear to be a bit cramped, but seven people will be happily adjusted into the car. The seats would be upholstered with high quality fabrics, while the power steering would make the driving absolutely easy for the driver. The power windows will also be present along with high performing air cooling system with AC vents that are well-spread . With such competitive price range and appealing looks, the car certainly has a big competition that it is going to face in the Indian car bazaar.  The major challenger of Mahindra Quanto will turn out to be Maruti Ertiga, which has been roaring with success these days.

Mahindra Quanto Exterior
Exteriors

Quanto which was earlier known to the world as Mini Xylo as the name suggests is the compact verison of Mahindra India’s MPV Xylo. Mahindra Quanto is designed and developed on the Mahindra India’s sturdy , tried and tested as well as highly successful Ingenio platform which it shares with Xylo MPV. The Quanto is spawned on the body -on-ladder chassis that the Indian auto major reduced to fit the bill and get this utility vehicle under sub-four metre vehicle zone. Getting the vehicle under 4 meters has helped Mahindra to get the excise duty benefits which has helped the company to price it pretty competitively to take a dig at the diesel hatchback buyers as well as entry level sedan consumers. Now since this compact SUV is built on Xylo’s platform, no doubt it will make you remember its inspirer and to be true the front fascia is just a pinch different from the facelift version of Xylo, one can say that things have just been refined to appeal to the potential consumers. One look won’t be enough to realize the difference, only when you dig deeper you get to notice that the ‘V’ bonnet has been retouched and there is a new lip that has been added above the toothy smiley grille. The front fascia has been turned modish with trendy fog lamps and sporty roof rails. Although the wheel size has been decreased from 16” to 15” in Quanto , the car still sits tall and gets a bit inelegant, seems like Mahindra was looking for comfort than design and appeal. The Quanto gets all new D pillars, wrapped around tail lamps and the there is spare wheel that is surmounted on the tail gate at the rear end which fulfills the mini-SUV philosophy. Moving towards the rear end the similarities between Xylo and Quanto are numerous, just the tail of the compact SUV is different where the Xylo’s large rear windows and bumper has been replaced with the quarter glass and the overhanged spare wheel tyre.


Exterior Measurements:


This compact SUV comes with a total length of 3985mm along with an impressive width of 1850mm. Its has a total height of 1880mm and a ground clearance of just 180mm. However, it comes with a conventional SUV like wheelbase with 2760mm, which is quite large.

Interiors

Editor's take : The Quanto is a compact SUV, but is spacious on the inside. The bells and whistles and the plastic quality on the Quanto is decent. The Quanto’s seats are also fairly comfortable with loads of headroom.



The Mahindra Quanto is a seven seater vehicle, which makes it the only vehicle in sub 4-meter segment with such configuration. The cockpit has two individual seats while the middle row has bench seats and the third row consists of side-facing seats. The space in the first and second row is ample, which makes it comfortable for at least five passengers. While the leg and head space in third row is quite good, but the shoulder space is not up to the mark. The C2 trim comes with vinyl seat upholstery and the C4 trim has vinyl/fabric upholstery. On the other hand, the C6 and C8 variants variants are bestowed with premium fabric upholstery . The seats in the second row can be foldable in 60:40 split ratio, which also has a reclining function as well. The dashboard is done up with a dual tone beige color scheme and is designed with a tray along with a storage box and an attractive central console. It is further equipped with a AC unit, music system and other utility based features. The steering wheel has four spokes and is engraved with a prominent company's logo. This compact SUV comes with a set of utility aspects including second row middle armrest, five bottle holders, magazine pockets, mobile charging point and cup holders.


Interior Comfort:


This sub 4-meter SUV is bestowed with all the necessary comfort features, which offers a stress-free traveling experience. The entry level C2 trim is equipped with aspects like courtesy lamp with theater effect and sun visor, while the C4 variant also comes with a sleek digital clock including a topper pad, Micro hybrid system and passenger vanity mirror. The C6 and C8 variants are equipped with advanced aspects like sleek digital drive assist, roof console with sunglass holder and illuminated passenger vanity mirror.

Interior Measurements:


As said above, this utility vehicle comes with an impressive leg and head room in all its three rows. The shoulder space in its first and second rows is quite good, but it is too low in the rear cabin, which may not be suitable for adults. This vehicle has a decent storage space in the third row, which can be extended further by folding the seats in second and third row. On the other hand, this vehicle comes with a decent fuel storage capacity of 55 litres, which is quite good.

Acceleration & Pick-Up

Editor's take : The acceleration produced by the 1.5-litre engine is good and it does well when it comes to drivability.

 

Coming to the acceleration and pickup, who doesn’t what their car to talk to the wind? Everyone wishes that their car has the highest speed and zoom away with high speed when on road . However, Mahindra Quanto, which is a smaller version of Mahindra Xylo MPV, lacks when we talk about its sprint capability as it takes about 17.41 seconds to reach 100kmph speed from a standstill . The reason whu Mahindra quanto takes a lot of time to reach the 100kmph speed can be sited with the kerb weight of the car which is about 1640kg which seriously weighs it down. The new Mahindra Quanto comes with rear wheel drive, therefore, when accelerated, the engine will produce power and send it to the rear wheels that would let the mini MPV to zoom away with good speed and touch the100kmph mark in few seconds . Overall, the acceleration and pickup of Mahindra Quanto is likely to be notable and smooth.

Mahindra Quanto Engine
Engine and Performance

Editor's take : This new engine on the Quanto is a newly derived engine from the existing Mahindra powertrains. The twin turbos help to reduce the lag and make it more drivable as the power delivery is linear, like a petrol mill. Mahindra does a good job with its new engine.

 

The engine of Mahindra Quanto is one of the most interesting engine of today’s time. The sub 1.5L diesel engine is not a newfangled engine in Mahindra’s engine line-up rather it is the toned down version of the 2.2L mhawk diesel engine. The mini Xylo will be blessed with a new diesel engine made with aluminum. Apparently, this engine has be made BS V ready and would be BS VI complaint with just few alterations. The engine uses double-overhead camshaft setup along with a common rail developed by Bosch.The new engine here weighs about 65kgs less as compared to the MDiCRDe motor and produces peak power of100bhp at the rate of 3750rpm along with 240Nmof maximum torque at the rate of 1600-2800rpm. The engine here is smartly coupled with five speed manual transmission that makes it more dynamic and robust.

It is very important for any car to deliver high mileage.

Braking & Handling

Editor's take : The ride and handling of the Quanto is one area that doesn’t impress us. The problem is that, neither the ride is excellent nor is the handling that great. 

 

The braking and handling of Mahindra Quanto is impressive. The braking system comprises of dynamic and responsive brakes along with advanced features like anti lock braking system (ABS). This will prevent the wheels from locking up in case immediate brakes are applied and avert the vehicle from skidding. The handling of the car is supported by a good suspension system along with electrically assisted power steering wheel.

Mahindra Quanto Safety
Safety & Security

Editor's take : The safety features on the Quanto include ABS and dual airbags.

 

When it comes to safety, Mahindra and Mahindra has made sure that the new Mahindra Quanto is sprinkled with numerous high class safety features. Just like Mahindra Xylo, the Quanto is adorned with active and passive safeguards. The car features Anti-lock braking system and dual front airbags. The airbags for the driver and front co-passenger saves them from extreme harm in case of collision or accident. to add on to the safety department of Mahindra Quanto, the mini MPV is blessed with front fog lamps as well. This enables the driver to get a better view of the road in bad weather conditions. Also, the small compact SUV comes with engine immobilizer that safeguards the car from any harm .
