Mahindra Alturas G4 is equipped with nine airbags
Domestic automaker Mahindra has launched the ‘2WD High’ variant of the Alturas G4 SUV in India. This new variant replaces the existing ‘4WD’ (four-wheel drive) model. Its ex-showroom price has been kept at Rs 30.68 lakh.
Only the all-wheel-drive system has changed in the updated SUV as compared to the current trim. No change has been made in its design, features and mechanical parts.
What is the specialty of this car?
The Alturas G4 is actually a rebadged version of the second generation Ssangyong Rexton in the global market.
The SUV was first introduced by Mahindra at the Auto Expo 2018 and was placed above the XUV500 in the brand’s portfolio.
The car has achieved a top five-star safety rating in the Korean New Car Assessment Program (K-NCAP) crash test.
This car is present in India with ADAS technology.

What is the new price of Mahindra Alturas G4?
Mahindra Alturas G4 is now available in only one variant in India. Its new price is now Rs 30.68 lakh ex-showroom. The SUV can be booked online or through the company’s dealerships across the country.
Recently Mahindra has increased the prices of its XUV700 and Thar for the third time this year. The company had also increased the prices of these SUVs in January and April.
Now select variants of the XUV700 have become expensive by up to Rs 37,000, while the prices of Thar have been increased by up to Rs 28,000.
The long waiting period of two years and now the price hike is likely to reduce their sales.
