Delhi to Paris should be around 17,000 to 20,000 km one way. So why do you expect a car to break down within such a distance? Plus with good tyres, there shouldn't be any puncture either! With an oil change any car should easily do this distance without any hiccups. A regular Alto crosses 1L km without any fuss. So doing this distance is nothing for a car in today's date.


My friend did Kolkata to London in his Ecosport in 2017.
His car did the trip flawlessly, not even a puncture too! It just needed a regular engine oil change.

+1 to Samba's post. Why would a new car break down in just 20K kilometers? Even a Nano will be able to do this trip, maybe with a bit more time

The car doesn't know that it's going to France It is basically a case of driving 20k kms in a short period of time. I dont understand all the hoopla around this. If regular maintenance as per service schedule is carried out any vehicle could do this.

Things change drastically when the terrain is different eg. Going to Leh, driving in sub zero temperatures or going on an overland trip in the wild.
