2018 Mahindra Alturas: What to expect from each variant

10th Nov 2018 12:01 am

Mahindra’s new SUV will be available in two variants, namely G2 and G4. We tell you the equipment you can expect in each version.

Mahindra has announced that its flagship, the Alturas SUV, will go on sale in India on November 24. The SUV is, in essence, Mahindra’s version of the latest-gen SsangYong Rexton, and will be the new range-topping model in the carmaker’s line-up.

The Alturas will be available in two trims, namely G2 and G4. While both versions of the SUV will come powered by a 180.5hp/450Nm 2.2-litre diesel engine mated to a Mercedes-sourced 7-speed automatic transmission, there are a few notable differences between the G2 and G4. In short, the G2 is rear-wheel-drive only while the G4 gets four-wheel drive and also more by way of features.

We’ve got our hands on the inside info and can tell you what you can expect on the two versions of the SUV.
