Which is better used Premier Rio or Mahindra Quanto?
By: Rupal on 2 july 2014
Mahindra Quanto is available in only diesel version ie 1.5L engine delivering power of 100PS and Torque of 260Nm. Rio though available in two engine versions, in CRDI version it features 1248 cc engine delivering power of 72PS and Torque of 180NM. In 1.4L Turbo diesel engine delivering power of 76PS. Quanto is way ahead of Rio in all parameters. Besides it also has better service network and easy availability of spares and hence you can get better resale value too. Considering all parameters, Quanto is a better selection.
Both the vehicles are evenly built and are selling at a similar price range. However, Mahindra Quanto is a bit wider and taller than Rio, which gives the riders better leg and headroom. Mahindra Quanto can seat up to 7 persons, whereas, the Rio can seat only 5 riders comfortably. Mahindra Quanto also has a more powerful engine and is equipped with power steering, which is sadly absent in Premier Rio. Therefore, in conclusion we believe that Mahindra Quanto is a better car.
Though, both vehicles are good in its segment but I would suggest to go for Mahindra Quanto instead of Premier Rio. Mahindra has very strong dealership and service centre networks across the country and you can easily find its mechanics even on outskirts. Also, Mahindra is a very trusted brad and well known for making strong and reliable vehicles and it gets good resale value.
