In addition to this, it is likely to offer the option of a manual as well as an automatic gearbox. The top-end G4 variant will offer the 4WD option and is likely to come with only an automatic gearbox.

The power output for this oil-burner will stand close to 185 BHP with the torque figure clocking around 420 Nm. There is a possibility for the introduction of a petrol derivative as well. The latter could be a 2.0-litre unit. Its power outputs will stand close to 225 BHP along with 220 Nm of peak torque.
Expect the diesel derivative of this SUV to offer a mileage figure of around 15 km/l. While the petrol motor, if introduced is likely to offer around 10 km/l of mileage.

Being a premium SUV, the Alturas G4 is going to offer a plethora of features. Automatic headlamps, rain-sensing wipers, leather upholstery, multi-zone climate control are some that you can expect.
