Mechanically, the Mahindra Alturas G4 remains the same as before. It is still powered by a BS6 compliant 2.2-litre turbo diesel engine that churns out 178 bhp and 420 Nm of peak torque. The engine comes mated to a 7-speed automatic gearbox, sourced from Mercedes-Benz, and it gets an RWD drivetrain.
