It was year 2009, when India-based SUV giant Mahindra & Mahindra launched its inaugural urban Multi Utility Vehicle (MUV) in the form of Mahindra Xylo. Since its debut it has been counted as best sellers from the company and is rated as one of the best under Rs 10 Lakh MUV in India.

Prior to the name ‘Quanto’ it was widely called as Mahindra Mini Xylo. Quanto is a short of actual word ‘Quantum’ meaning quantity i.e. more space, more fun.
The overall outer structure of Mahindra Quanto looks compact yet classy, whilst its large-looking dimensions never endow you with a feel of being inferior against other large SUVs in segment.

Mahindra Quanto Interiors and Features
Mahindra Quanto Exterior and Features
The rear of Mahindra Quanto is more interesting. The engineers at Mahindra didn’t want Quanto to be called as just a ‘carbon-copy version’ of bigger Xylo alongside they also wanted it hold that sporty charisma, hence they did something distinct. As a result, now the rear tail gate is seen with mounted spare wheel with stylish cover and tail lamps positioned at a decent height compared to standard. The rear bumpers have multi reflectors and there is high mounted stop lamp for safety. Overall the exteriors of Mahindra Quanto are a perfect design amalgamation of Mahindra XUV500 and Mahindra Xylo.

Mahindra Quanto Road Test
First things first the driver’s seating position is just amazing with elevated stance that provides a commanding view to the driver with large windscreen glass area; so the confidence starts to built-up as soon as you capture the throne. Tested in city as well as highway conditions it provides you with a reasonable value. In city drives it produced decent grunt, but the on paper performance was not reflecting as much, however with the assistance of twin turbo chargers it was able to drag the 1640 kilogram weight with some ease, here also the ladder on frame chassis helped it to exert a pull. The clutch seemed light and manual gearbox was acceptable, considering Mahindra Quanto as SUV, but not that smooth as seen hatchbacks. City drives were lively due to light steering and with turning radius of mere 5.4 meters it was effortless when moving in and out of narrow city lanes.
The NVH (noise, vibration and harshness) were acceptable considering a diesel vehicle with big on power attitude, but at times road noise did sneaks into the cabin. You can’t ignore the turbo-lag present in Mahindra Quanto compact SUV although it gets vanished soon after the needle touches 1600 rpm. The brakes perform fine to halt the heavy-weight of Quanto. However brake pedal seems hard, don’t know was it with one specific car Mahindra Quanto C8 which we drove or common on all. Quanto was firm on road side undulations and absorbed the hiccups well; moreover, the suspension was satisfactory, while body roll was sensed while cornering. At high speeds on the highways it was good but not the best, though tolerable sighting that it’s a mini SUV. The city mileage is amazing and more than satisfactory for a vehicle of this size. Some of the highly regarded points for compact SUV Mahindra Quanto were its cabin space in the first two rows, high seating posture, versatility in seating layout and feature packed interior equipment list along with powerful yet frugal diesel motor.
