Mahindra says that the NuvoSport is built on the new Scorpio’s platform (not the Ingenio platform which underpins the Xylo, Genio and Imperio). The SUV features a new front fascia that is sure to polarize opinions. Apart from minor enhancements here and there, the profile and rear fascia stay intact.
