The Mahindra Alturas G4 SUV is going to receive a mild facelift and its Korean version updated Rexton G4 has been spied for the first time. It is expected to come to India some time in 2020-21.
The current generation SsangYong Rexton G4 has been around in the international market for two years and it is getting ready to receive a facelift to remain fresh. In the Indian car market, the Rexton G4 is rebadged as the Mahindra Alturas G4. The Rexton G4’s upcoming facelift model has been recently spotted testing on the South Korean roads. The test prototype model was spotted wearing partial camouflage which offered some idea about what to expect from the updated version.
The refreshed Alturas G4’s exterior seems to be sporting a similar styling to the current version as it is hard to find out any noticeable changes on its sheet metal design. Given that there’s thick camouflage at the front and the rear, we expect changes at both the ends. So the headlights and the front and rear bumper might sport changes.
Going by the spy images, the Alturas G4 facelift will not be getting any design updates on its side profile. The test prototype’s rear end has also been seen featuring full camouflage, but radical design updates are not expected at the rear. The facelift model is likely to get redesigned tail lights along with a revised rear bumper.
On the inside, we expect interior colour theme change and some more features to keep things modern. Since it is only a facelift, we do not expect Mahindra or SsangYong to make any powertrain changes.
The Alturas G4 is expected to receive a facelift next year and the changes will be similar to its South Korean counterpart. The Alturas G4 is equipped with a 2.2 liter diesel engine that develops a maximum of 181PS of power and 420Nm of torque. Its 4x2 variant is priced at Rs 27.7 lakh while the 4x4 version costs Rs 30.7 lakh (both prices ex-showroom).
