Default Mahindra Alturas G4 2WD High variant launched at Rs. 30.68 lakh

Mahindra has silently added a new variant to the Alturas G4 range. The new 2WD High trim is priced at Rs 30.68 lakh (ex-showroom) and is rumoured to replace the 4WD variant.

The Alturas G4 2WD High looks similar to the 4WD variant and gets similar features as well. The SUV comes equipped with HID headlamps with LED daytime running lights and 18-inch dual-tone alloy wheels.

On the interior, the 2WD High variant gets an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, ventilated seats, an electric sunroof, a 360-degree camera and nine airbags.

Powering the Alturas G4 2WD High variant is the same 2.2-litre diesel engine that makes 178 BHP and 420 Nm. The engine is mated to a 7-speed automatic transmission that sends power to the rear axle.

A surprise launch indeed, I thought they will not invest in this going forward. Could be a good option for some one who wants a quick delivery of a car, as I don't see these selling much.

All Mahindra needs is to re style this SUV. Bring some 700 or Scorpio vibes into this. Put a panoramic sunroof. It would be the real big daddy

While 700 and Scorpio are having a huge backlog, this seems to be lagging.

This news is probably just to make people realize that Mahindra still sells this car

Did not realise this car was on sale till I saw this post.
Looking at the spec sheet and prices, I always thought of it as a decent car but for some reasons never really took off.

A good move by Mahindra!

I've been reading about people jumping from XUV 700 and Scorpio-N to Tucson / Harrier / Safari due to long waiting periods. And by introducing a 2WD variant of its flagship BOF SUV, M&M wants the fence jumpers to stay within the stable!

This is such a good value for money car. Very underrated. Easily the better pick when compared to the rivals.

I few days back, I got a chance to pass by this rare specimen. I must say that I was truly impressed by its external appearance. Gorgeous! I don't know what's keeping people away from this.

They would have been better off introducing a petrol 4x4 than a diesel 4x2. There are already plenty of diesel 4x2's in this range but the real gap is in the petrol 4x4 segment. They could have really changed the fortunes of this otherwise fine vehicle. I don't know however whether they have a petrol engine that could fit the bill. I don't see a diesel 4x2 changing much as far as demand for the car goes.

Why yes! The mStallion with a slight torque tweak should be just about right. It does the duty in the Thar too. Add to that the sweet sound when it revs.

This could be a segment exclusive and will sell to those who are in NCR or want refinement.

I assume you are saying because of the Delhi NCR situation. But mostly a diesel is preferred for a butch fuel guzzling SUV. Also the torque of diesel is better for a BOF SUV. Monocoque SUV can go away with a Petrol engine.

I too prefer diesel for SUVs, but given the way the rules are going, diesel in private vehicles is a bit uncertain. Of course, NCR rules is why I was saying this, but this is quite likely to spread, unfortunately.

I was very close to buying the 4X4 last year. The company was offering a fat 2.5 lakh discount on it but nobody at the dealership was really keen on selling it(I did not get a single follow up call). In the end I left it because of future spare parts concerns.

Finally bought a Compass 4X4 top spec because of the amazing interiors, deal maker pano roof and the compactness of it all. The Compass was only 50K cheaper than the Alturas at that time.

BTW, I see a lot of the features in Alturas copied/moved to XUV700 which made me cringe somehow.

Sharing the pics from the training of Dealership personnel. Interesting to see how they are comparing spare parts prices with Fortuner.

Even if the rules in other regions change, it would only be applicable to cars sold post the rule change. Existing owners won't be affected.
