Launched in two variants – 2WD and 4WD, the Mahindra Altruras G4 is priced at Rs 28.69 lakh and Rs 31.69 lakh respectively. At that price, it is over Rs 1 lakh more expensive than the outgoing BS-IV models
Mahindra has gradually been bringing in BS6 updated models. Just a few days back, the Nashik-based company announced the pricing of the KUV100 NXT, and now they have updated the prices of the Alturas G4 on their official website. Their flagship is now priced at Rs 28.69 lakh for the base 2WD drive variant and Rs 31.69 lakh for the fully-loaded 4WD trim. The BS-IV variants of the Alturas demanded Rs 27.70 lakh and Rs 30.70 lakh, making the updated iteration roughly Rs 1 lakh dearer than before. Although Mahindra has announced the prices of the BS-VI model, deliveries will only commence after the lockdown lifts.
Mahindra is expected to continue with the same 2.2-litre four-cylinder diesel motor that pumps out 178bhp and 420Nm. The Mahindra flagship borrows its 7-speed automatic transmission from Mercedes-Benz. Still heavily relying on diesel tech, there’s still no petrol option on offer for the Alturas.
In terms of design, the BS-VI Alturas will look identical to model before it. The Toyota Fortuner rival is 4,850mm in length, 1,960mm in width and 1,845mm tall. The front and rear wheels of the flagship SUV sit 2,865mm apart. As far as features go, expect the updated Alturas also to be heavily equipped like the previous model. The top-end 4WD variant came equipped with HID headlights, cornering fog headlamps, quilted Nappa leather interior, ambient lighting, sun roof, heated ORVMs and more.
Just like before, the Alturas G4 will continue to compete against the likes of the Toyota Fortuner, Ford Endeavour, Skoda Kodiaq and the likes.
