Mahindra to launch SUV Quanto in September


Mahindra will be launching the much awaited Quanto-SUV in the second half of September 2012. Based on the Xylo platform, the Quanto will be a sub 4-metre SUV.

It will come with a new three-cylinder twin-turbo diesel engine producing 65PS and wear the same tyres as the Toyota Innova in size. The car will be pitched in the same space as the Premier Rio SUV and the prices are expected to start from Rs 5 lakh.

Speaking on the Quanto, Pawan Goenka, President, Automotive and Farm Equipment Sectors, Mahindra and Mahindra Ltd said, customer centric innovation has always been at the heart of any product development at the Mahindra Group. With the Quanto, Mahindra is aiming to fill a need gap in the Indian automotive market for a versatile and compact SUV.

We are confident that with its unique value proposition, the Quanto will carve out a segment for itself in the market. The Quanto will cater to the needs of young urban India which enjoys an active lifestyle. We expect the Quanto to offer an exciting upgrade at a premium to customers who are otherwise looking for premium diesel hatchbacks or entry level diesel sedans.
