SsangYong Rexton Facelift Teased, Previews Updated Mahindra Alturas G4
The 2021 Mahindra Alturas G4 facelift is expected to be equipped with autonomous driving tech like the MG Gloster
Mahindra Alturas G4 is a badge-engineered version of the second-gen SsangYong Rexton.
The Alturas G4 looks identical to the Rexton, save for the badges.
Second-gen Rexton was introduced in 2017 and will receive its mid-life refresh on November 4.
The facelift looks sharper with a new front fascia, sleeker tail lamps, and sportier bumpers.
Facelifted Rexton will also feature new driver assistance features using autonomous tech.
Expect the updated looks and some of the new tech to feature on the facelifted Alturas G4.
The updated Mahindra Alturas G4 is expected in 2021.
The Mahindra Alturas G4 full-size premium SUV is a badge-engineered version of the Rexton which is offered by a Mahindra-owned international brand, the SsangYong. The Rexton facelift has now been teased ahead of its global debut on November 4.
The front fascia of the facelifted Rexton looks sharper and more eye-catching than the previous model, with new full-LED headlamps and integrated LED daytime running lights. It seems to have a sportier bumper and a MASSIVE grille. The rear end has also been updated to look sharper with new tail lamps and a sportier rear bumper. We can expect similar updates to the Mahindra Alturas G4 in 2021.
SsangYong will also be updating the Rexton with a host of modern driver assistance systems using autonomous driving tech like autonomous braking, adaptive cruise control, and lane keep assist. These systems will be specified at the car’s launch in November in South Korea. Some of the new tech could be introduced on the Alturas G4 facelift to compete with the recent introduction of the MG Gloster in the full-size SUV segment here. Even the new-gen XUV500 mid-size SUV is due to feature some driver-assistance tech and could launch before the facelifted Alturas G4 in early-2021.
Mahindra offers the Alturas G4 with a single 2.2-litre diesel engine that makes 180PS and 420Nm while mated to a 7-speed automatic. It is available with a choice of 4x2 and 4x4 drivetrains with the latter being the best-equipped variant. While the Rexton also gets the choice of a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine, the Alturas is likely to remain a diesel-only offering even with the facelift.
The Mahindra Alturas G4 is priced between Rs 28.72 lakh and Rs 31.72 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). The facelift will attract a premium for the new features. It will continue to rival the likes of the Toyota Fortuner, Ford Endeavour, MG Gloster as well as premium monocoque offerings like the Skoda Kodiaq and Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace.
