Default Re: Mahindra Nuvosport is the updated Quanto

In my perspective, the only flaws that the quanto had were ride, handling and looks.
looks- pretty nice i must say , better than kuv for sure, but a bit confused between TUV and this as the looks cater to people with different mindsets.This car will be hard to bully others with imposing looks like the TUV but it will be quite nice for the car like suv lover eg. ecosport brezza.

handling and ride- this surely has to be an improvement as M&M have confirmed the new scorpio chassis which drives like a charm eg. new scorpio and TUV .

we only have to see on 4th the Interiors (the spy white pics are horrendous), and the drive train, i think mahindra might reveal the 1.5 ltr mFalcon not the mHawk80 as was teased during the KUV launch

On a side note, NDTV's Car & Bike show publishes news report of Team BHP's scoop about the Nuvo Sport and acknowledges Team BHP as the source. Good job by the BHPians, who gave us all the news first.

Nuvosport will be offered in 6 variants

N4, N4+, N6, N6 AMT, N8, N8 AMT

It'll be powered by a 1.5-litre three-cylinder mHawk diesel engine offering two drive modes Power and Economy with varying outputs. The engine will be paired with a five-speed manual gearbox with the option of an AMT gearbox.

So we figured out the engine, transmission and partially interiors too. Only pricing is left, which we have some direction thanks to their contest stating it will be priced over TUV300. (The increased compared to TUV is another clue). Basically, the structure will be like this:

TUV300: 7.4-9.7 lakhs ( avg. ex-showroom)
Nuvosport: 7.9 - 10.2 lakhs
Space for new model: proposed / rumoured TUV 500 ( is still pending!)
Scorpio: 9.9 - 15.1 lakhs ( not considering the non MHawk engines)

Pretty confusing but I feel they are trying to plug as many gaps as possible and following Maruti scheme of things with their SUV range ( similar to Swift / Ritz). It may be successful but there is too much similarity between the TUV/ Nuvosport, so a lot of cannabilzation of each other's sales is bound to happen.

The questions being asked are quite interesting. It seems Mahindra will price and position the vehicle based on contest results! On top of it, they have also asked 'why NuvoSport is suitable name for this SUV'.
Come on Mahindra, do you need help for such things or are you doing what Tata did for renaming Zica?
The link is as follows, have a look.
http://www.mahindranuvosport.com/contest/default.aspx#
It doesn't look like it will be positioned below TUV 300, from the bucket list contest questions it is safe to assume that it will be positioned above TUV 300 in terms of pricing. It will have a more powerful engine than the TUV 300 that is clear now, 4x4 will be offered I assume as they are definitely promoting this as a Sports SUV. Nuvosport will be completely different from TUV & not just in looks, a very good move IMHO by Mahindra. Customers will have to consider Nuvosport for more power (and probably 4x4) instead of just going for TUV over it. Will it eat into TUV's share of sales? Only time will tell.

I just saw this as a banner ad. On clicking it I got to see some views of the Nuvo Sport.

Frankly the Front 3 Quarter view looks nicest as of this moment.

The rear 3 quarter looks exactly like the present Quanto in my book!

it is the only one with RWD and a super-durable body-on-chassis structure - that should keep some aspiring off-roaders coming to the show-rooms! Now if M&M would add the 4WD option to the AMT that's supposedly in the pipeline....

I as a customer would be confused as to what to buy between the TUV and the NuvoSport. I don't think there are many differences either.

M&M should have stuck to just one model [either TUV or this] and improved it further.

I agree as far as the choice between the two, in their current avatars (only RWD) is concerned - but if AWD/4WD were to be offered on the NuvoSport, as is being discussed, then the choice would be a bit clearer. On the other hand, if the TUV too were to be offered with this option (AWD/4WD) then I guess the TUV would be a clear favourite!

I guess everyone has already expressed their views & comment only after the details are out in webcast.
Also I feel that this is not a eagerly awaited launch like Brezza.
Let's wait n watch.

Yes, I agree. But that shows how uninspiring the Quanto is! In case of Nuvosport, only the front is likeable. Everything else looks exactly the same as the nasty-looking Quanto except the colour scheme and the new hydro-formed chassis as Scorpio. God save NuvoSport.

Hey Mahindra, get rid off the Xylo and Logan based products to make your lineup more "approachable" in terms of looks. Concentrate on the Scorpio and TUV-based themes.

Prices start at 7.35 Lacs, ex-showroom in Thane.

Not at all good pricing. No idea why someone would buy this over the TUV, from the Mahindra stable.
