Mahindra Alturas to Launch Soon in India

The Mahindra Alturas is based on the latest-gen SsangYong Rexton SUV and will sit above the XUV500 in Mahindra’s India line-up. The SUV gets a fresh design that’s similar to the new Rexton, however, the grille gets a Mahindra family look, along with minor changes on the body. The SUV features a rugged body-on-frame construction, just like its predecessor. The meaning of the name ‘Alturas’ is heights. Mahindra wants to scale new heights in the market and squarely take on SUVs like the Toyota Fortuner, the Ford Endeavour and the recently updated Isuzu MU-X. The Mahindra Alturas SUV will come in two variants – a lower-spec G2 trim that will come with 2WD and a fully-loaded 4WD model, the G4. The SUV will be powered by a 2.2-litre diesel engine that’s good for 180.5hp and 450Nm of torque. While there will be no manual gearbox on offer, the Mahindra Alturas will come with a sole Mercedes-sourced 7-speed automatic gearbox with manual shifting. The SUV comes with a 244mm ground clearance and a 5.5m turning circle. Mahindra’s top-spec Alturas will come loaded with a large touchscreen system, sunroof, Napa leather upholstery, ventilated seats with memory function and an electronic parking brake.
