It is a full size luxury SUV which competes with SUVs like Ford Endeavour, Toyota Fortuner and MG Gloseter in the segment. Mahindra recently updated the Alturas to make it compliant with new BS6 emission norms. It is an expensive SUV and is not one of the best sellers from the manufacturer. Mahindra is currently offering a huge discount on Alturas which makes it even cheaper than a Toyota Fortuner. Mahindra is offering a maximum discount of Rs 3.06 lakh on this luxury SUV.
The discount that Mahindra is offering with the Alturas includes a cash discount of Rs 2.20 lakh, an exchange bonus worth Rs 50,000 along with a corporate discount of Rs 16,000. Apart from these, Mahindra is also offering other benefits worth Rs 20,000 with the luxury SUV. Mahindra had launched the Alturas G4 in 2018 and it is available with a diesel engine option only.
In comparison to international model Ssangyong Rexton, Alturas is slightly different. These changes were made to make it more appealing to Indian buyers and also to keep the costs low. It got a redesigned grille smaller wheel but, even then it could not make much of a difference in the segment that is ruled by Toyota Fortuner and Ford Endeavour. It is a well equipped SUV with premium features on the inside. It gets a plush looking cabin with Nappa leather seats and gets features like touchscreen infotainment system, electric sunroof, elelctrically adjustable seats and so on.
