The Mahindra Alturas brings a lot of new features for a SUV and has huge dimensions.
Mahindra’s new Alturas G4 has been launched in India today. Entering a segment of vehicles which has established products like the Toyota Fortuner and Ford Endeavour, the Mahindra Alturas G4 is the latest flagship model produced by the company. In essence, it is the 4th generation of the SsangYong Rexton SUV sold under Mahindra’s banner.
On the outside, the Alturas G4 sports a chrome-laden grille and looks huge. Its dimensions are 4850 mm x 1960 mm x 1845 mm and has a wheelbase of 2865 mm. The Mahindra logo is also embossed on the front grille. The rear design has a simple look paired with the taillights and the vehicle gets 18-inch wheels.

The interiors are laden with dual-tone Nappa leather upholstery. The dashboard houses an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with multiple connectivity features, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
