Exterior The Mahindra Classic is the king of the road! It is an eye-turner whereever you drive it. People will turn around and give you a 2nd look!
Interior (Features, Space & Comfort) It is not a big vehicle. It is a compact, convertible open jeep with mag wheels. Suspension is hard because it is an off-roader. It is a tough jeep to drive. It is a mean machine.
Engine Performance, Fuel Economy and Gearbox 4x4. Engine is 2200cc Peugot diesel engine. Front axle is full floating hypoid and rear is semi-floating hypoid. Fuel tank capacity is 40litres. Uses a 12volt battery, 22amps generator/35amps alternator. 4 forward & 1 reverse with 2nd, 3rd and 4th synromesh. Gear rations: 3.986:1, 1.473:1, 1:1, Reverse 5.315:1. Transfer case: Two speeds with ratio 2.46:1 and 1:1. Wheels are meant for cross-country (off-roader).
Ride Quality & Handling The vehicle is hard to handle.
Final Words It is a mean macho machine not for the softies, but for those who like it on the rough!
Areas of improvement Gear box could be made 5-speed with the 1st synromesh. Other than that I dont think the Classic needs any further improvement!
