Mahindra launched the all-new Alturas G4 in India with much fanfare as a full-size flagship SUV. The seven-seater Mahindra is offered in two trim levels – 4x2 and 4x4 – with one diesel powertrain across five colour options. The Mahindra-badged G4 Rexton was first showcased at the 2018 Auto Expo in Delhi. Apart from the new nose - which now gets Mahindra’s toothed grille - and some subtle changes all around the car, the entire car has been carried over from the international version. So it retains its huge dimension along with the brawny road presence. The squared-off wheel arches gel well with the sharp body creases. The rear gets nicely design taillamps with sculpted bumpers and roof-spoiler. The Alturas rides on 18-inch alloy wheels.
On the inside, the Alturas looks very upmarket owing to the high-quality material used all around. The upright dashboard gets eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system while the quilted leather upholstery makes the cabin look more premium. The long feature list includes eight-way adjustable driver’s seat with memory function, dual zone climate control, 350-degree camera, TPMS, ventilated seats, ISOFIX, active rollover protection and most importantly nine airbags to name a few.
Powering the all-new Alturas G4 is a 2.2-litre diesel engine. Even though the engine has less capacity compared to its direct rivals (Endeavour’s 3.2-litre and Fortuner’s 2.8-litre) the output is on par with the competition at 185bhp and 420Nm. The transmission is a Mercedes-Benz sourced seven-speed torque converter. The SUV can be had either in 4x2 or 4x4 configuration.
The Mahindra Alturas G4 goes up against the likes of the segment leader Toyota Fortuner and the well-established Ford Endeavour. It will also be pitted against the premium seven-seater SUVs like the Honda CR-V and Skoda Kodiaq. Mahindra has set up a separate high-end showroom with exclusive features to sell the all-new Alturas G4.
