Tata Hexa and Mahindra Alturas G4 are humongous SUVs in terms of their proportions. However, they can be seen speeding beyond 170 kmph in this video here. Check out this space for more details.
Mahindra and Tata are one of the very few Indian car manufacturers that are doing well in the mass-market vehicles. Both of these carmakers are known for making safe cars. Also, another aspect that they are quite famous for is making big-brawny SUVs. However, their flagship offerings are fast as well. They can be seen racing against each other in a video here that we came across via Power Stroke’s YouTube channel. It should be noted that it is an old video when the Alturas G4 hadn’t been launched in the Indian market. Also, these cars are not actually competing with each other. The driver of the Hexa is trying to chase the Alturas G4, which was on test with a hidden Mahindra logo.
In the video, the test mule of the Alturas G4 can be seen speeding over the 170 kmph at times. In an effort to chase the flagship Mahindra, Tata Hexa is also on its toes with similar speeds. Moreover, the Alturas G4 can be seen switching the lanes swiftly, which comes as quite a surprise for an SUV this big. We’d add that it isn’t safe to switch between the lanes at high speeds. Likewise, driving beyond the speed limit of the road should not be done.
Talking of the engine specifications, the Alturas G4 gets a 2.2L 4-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine that develops a peak power output of 180 PS and 420 Nm of max torque. This engine comes mated to a 7-speed automatic gearbox only, however, a 4WD layout is available as an option. The Alturas G4 is priced at Rs. 28.69 lakh for the 2WD variant and Rs. 31.69 lakh for the 4WD variant.
Tata Hexa, on the other hand, is powered by Varicor 400 engine. This 4-cylinder 2.2L turbocharged oil burner is designed to produce a peak power and torque output of 156 PS and 400 Nm, respectively. It can be had mated to either a 6-speed MT or a 6-speed AT. An electronically-controlled 4WD layout is also available as an option. Sadly, Hexa is currently not on sale in the Indian market as it fails to comply with the BS-6 emission norms.
