Mahindra has confirmed that it will launch Quanto, which bloggers reported as "Mini Xylo" in india on 20th September, 2012. A compact MUV, multi-utility-vehicle, Mahindra Quanto will fall in sub 4 meter category, to save tax which government takes on cars longer than 4 meter. So it would be price relatively low.

Mahindra Quanto would come with 1.5 litre diesel engine, borrowed from Mahindra Renault Logan. Or may be Mahindra would have its own 3 cylinder, 1 or 1.2 litre engine which would be capable of producing 100bhp of power.

Mahindra Quanto might come in five seater or seven seater. It has borrowed spare wheel mounted on rear from bolero. Front grill would come from Mahindra Xylo. It looks good from design, and with lower price tag, it may see good days in India.

Premier Rio is another Mini SUV which has been launched and upgraded in last 3 years.

  1. This is absolutely shocking and great to have such wounder full SUV with such impressive price range and I think the newly launch RIO market will be get down just because of this Quanto. One more thing Quanto is also the first car in India, except the BMW cars, to get the Twin Scroll Turbo which makes it very efficient and enhances its performance. The mileage that the car delivers is 17.1kmpl

  2. The last 2 backseats of Mahindra Quanto are very small where kids can squeeze in it but compare to Rio backseats completely flat well spacious

    1. Please do check the back seat's capacity Seat 6th & 7th

  3. Rio does NOT have back seat (6th & 7th)
