Priced aggressively between Rs 5.82 lakh and Rs 7.36 lakh, the new Mahindra Quanto looks set for a head on tussle with premium hatchbacks


Mahindra Quanto Launched at a price of Rs 5.82 lakh


The Quanto is powered by an all new three-cylinder, 1.5-litre engine badged the mCR100 (claimed by Mahindra to be the world’s smallest twin turbo engine) that develops 100bhp at 3750rpm and 240Nm of torque in the 1600-2800rpm band. The shift to a three pot unit is mainly to reduce emissions and improve fuel efficiency says Mahindra. The five-speed transmission is the same as in the Xylo though tweaked slightly to suit the Quanto’s characteristics.


The Quanto is available in four variants: C2, C4, C6 and C8 and six colour options: Fiery Black, Java Brown, Mist Silver, Toreador Red, Rocky Beige & Diamond White with the Toreador Red being the pick of the lot. Air conditioner, power and tilt steering and mobile charger are standard on all variants while safety features such as ABS, front and passenger airbags and reverse park assist are exclusive to the top-of-the-line C8 features. Other accessories on the C8 include roof rails, alloys, body coloured bumpers, handles and side panels, electric ORVM, side and rear foot steps.

Live the weekend life – that’s the tagline of the new Quanto and the mantra Mahindra wants potential customers – young, successful people – to live by. Does the Quanto manage to live up to its tagline, we’ll find out after a Road Test but initial impressions do look promising – the Quanto is a great product overall with space good enough to swallow a hatchback according to Mahindra, stellar ride quality and price that’s just right for those seeking a budget MUV.


Mahindra Quanto Prices:

C2: Rs 5.82 lakh

C4: Rs 6.35 lakh

C6: Rs 6.86 lakh

C8: Rs 7.36 lakh


*All prices, ex-showroom, Mumbai

The Quanto's performance is more than adequate for a vehicle of its type and yet so very close to that of many of the large sized premium hatchbacks
