Mahindra launched the NuvoSport at Rs 7.35 lakh (ex-Thane). The NuvoSport has been positioned as a replacement to the Quanto and will be sold alongside the Mahindra TUV300 and KUV100. One of the reasons for the Quanto to have not worked was itsoddball design. The NuvoSport gets a newer and more aggressive face though and it adds more appeal. Like in the case with the TUV300 and KUV100, Mahindra also offers a long list of bolt-on accessoriesthat can be kitted to the SUV.
Aftermarket chrome kits are available for most cars sold in India these days. However, Mahindra is offering their own kits on the NuvoSport. The radiator grille, bonnet scoop and the fog lamps are treated in chrome while the bumper gets chrome accents. The ORVMs, window line and the door handles gets a chrome job and so do the tail lights, spare wheel cover, rear license plate garnish and the bumper.
