Congrats on the Beast. The white looks very good. Do post more pictures and enjoy m any more miles with the Endeavour.

A worthy alternative to the Fortuner for off roading.

Congrats---the beast looks great! I thought an Endy was 3 lacs cheaper than a Captiva or Fortuner, but it looks like I was wrong.

Congratulations on getting the monster. Happy mile crunching and drive safely. The colour looks good. Hope you do go cross country with this beast.

BTW is the gear stick ergonomic to hold. Looks a bit clumsy from the pics.

I test drove the fortuner and did not like it much, especially since the dejavu of an Innova as soon as you get into the vehicle, plus the fortuner was an all time 4wd which just did not feel right for regular city drives.
endeavour was a better option with more features and was also 40grand less with 1 month waiting period.

thank you. There are two versions of the Endeavour.
the 2wd version which has a 2.5L motor and comes with different accessories and no option for a 4wd. priced around 20 odd lakhs on road bangalore
and the 5speed automatic which comes in 3.0L motor with 4wd with different features. priced 23,46.781 on road bangalore
