Mahindra launched the Alturas G4 back in November 2018 as a CKD offering and was being assembled at Mahindra’s Chakan plant. Sources now suggest that Mahindra is planning to discontinue its flagship SUV due to the split between Mahindra & Mahindra and Ssangyong group, as the Alturas G4 is essentially a rebadged version of the Ssangyong Rexton G4.
It has also come to light that the carmaker currently has parts to manufacture around 500 units of the Alturas G4 and the assembly will be stopped as soon as the supply runs out. The discontinuance of the Alturas G4 will not really put a big dent in Mahindra’s overall sales as the Alturas G4 has an average monthly sale of less than 100 units.
Under the hood, the Alturas gets a 2.2-litre diesel engine making 180PS of power and 420Nm of peak torque. Power is sent to all wheels via 7-speed automatic transmission and a 4WD system. The Alturas G4 is also available with a 2WD option.
Features on offer include up to 9 airbags, ABS with EBD, front and rear parking sensors, a 360-degree parking camera, traction control, electronic stability control, hill launch assist and hill descent control. Other features on offer include LED headlamps, 8-way electrically adjustable drive9r’s seat, sunroof, ambient lighting, ventilated front seats, dual-zone AC, a 7-inch driver’s display, tilt and telescopic steering wheel, cruise control, powered tailgate, push-button start, tyre pressure monitoring system, electronic parking brake and an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple Carplay and Android Auto.
The Alturas G4 is priced from Rs 28.72 lakh to Rs 31.72 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). It rivals the likes of the Toyota Fortuner, Ford Endeavour and the MG Gloster.
