I spent a few days with the Alturas and literally tested it through everything. I honestly, loved it. The interiors are the best in the segment but dynamics could be better. Still its a very comfortable alternative to the Endy or Fortuner.

Mahindra & Mahindra, has been updating its portfolio to make them compatible with the BS6 emission norms. The SUV maker has already introduced the BS6 avtars of the Bolero facelift, the Scorpio, the XUV500 and the KUV100 NXT BS6 in the Indian market. Now, the company is looking to launch the BS6 compliant version of its flagship SUV - the Alturas G4. We have also seen the full-size Alturas G4 BS6 testing on the Indian roads so the launch was just around the corner. Making things even more obvious, the company has teased the SUV on the official website with a tagline - Coming Soon.
Prices for the 2020 Mahindra Alturas G4 BS6 model are finally out, and the 7-seater SUV is now priced at ₹ 28.69 lakh topping out at ₹ 31.69 lakh (ex-showroom, India). It was just recently that Mahindra teased the BS6 compliant Alturas G4 on its website, and now, along with the prices, the company has also opened bookings for the flagship SUV, while deliveries are likely to commence post the lockdown. The SUV continues to come in two variants - Alturas G4 4x2 AT, and Alturas G4 4x4 AT.
Visually, the SUV remains unchanged boasting the same butch stance and featuring the same HID Headlamps with Dual Function DRLs, 18-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, the signature Mahindra grille, large roof rails, LED taillamps and a sunroof. Similarly, the cabin too remains unchanged, featuring the same premium Tan and Black interiors with matching leather upholstery, and a well-laid-out dashboard. The SUV also gets an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which also doubles up as the display for the 3D around-view camera. The top-end variant also gets a 7-inch colour TFT display for the instrument cluster, along with memory function for driver's seat and ORVMs, and a smart powered tailgate.
Mahindra Alturas G4 has received a variant called 2WD High. It sits below the existing 4WD variant, which was previously the sole trim on offer. While the 4WD variant is currently priced at Rs 31.88 lakh (ex-showroom), the new 2WD variant will set you back by Rs 30.68 lakh (ex-showroom). In comparison to the 4WD variant, the Mahindra Alturas G4 2WD High variant doesn't get a four-wheel-drive system. Due to this change, the pricing of the Alturas G4 2WD has witnessed a reduction of Rs 1.20 lakh.
Some of the key features of this trim include HID headlamps, LED DRLs, LED fog lights with cornering function, LED tail lights, tinted glass, 18-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, an eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a 360-degree camera, ventilated seats, ambient lighting, electrically adjustable driver seat with memory function, nine airbags, TPMS, cruise control, and an electric sunroof.
