A new SUV was launched by Mahindra. The new SUV is named as ‘Mahindra NuvoSport’. The Mahindra NuvoSport is a sub-four-metre car built on the new Scorpio platform.
The NuvoSport have a interesting style. From the first look, we can see the front fascia has a black hexagonal grille with vertical slats. Like the day time running lamps, the angular headlampsare set below the LED eyebrow. The front bumper gets a bull-bar like blacked out lower half with a silver accent for a faux bash plate. The bonnet gets a wide slit for air intake. It is only when you move to the sides is that you are reminded of the Quanto. The body shell with the blacked out pillars gets cladding on the bottom. The tail is from the Quanto with new clear lens tail lamps.
Mahindra gives very importent for safety. So the ABS and EBD with dual front airbags is standard across all variants except for the N4 where you can opt for the safety package. Power steering with tilt adjustment and power windows are standard. A 2-Din music system is available from the N6 trim with the top end N8 getting a 6.2 inch touchscreen unit. The top-spec car gets daytime running lamps, 16inch alloys, rear spoiler, reverse parking sensors and height adjustable driver seats.
The 1.5-litre three turbocharged diesel engine from the Quanto continues to perform its duties under the hood of the NuvoSport. The three-cylinder m-Hawk engine develops 100bhp of power and 240Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a five-speed manual gearbox and is also available with an AMT. Suspension has been retuned and the NuvoSport is expected to handle better than the outgoing Quanto. The sub-four-metre SUV is built on the new Scorpio platform and hence will be lighter than the Quanto.
