Look­ing for a Good 4x4

Car India - - YOUR VIEWS -

I'm look­ing to pur­chase a good 4x4 but I have some cri­te­ria that need to be met. My bud­get is about Rs 10 lakh. Dur­ing the week I drive about 50 km per day in city traf­fic. Twice a month I travel out of the city to ru­ral ar­eas on roads that are not in good re­pair. Please ad­vise me if a diesel car will be bet­ter or if a petrol one will serve the pur­pose just as well. I need a ve­hi­cle that is tough and easy to re­pair. Would you sug­gest an au­to­matic or man­ual as city driv­ing gets very tire­some? Look­ing for­ward to some use­ful and well-re­searched guid­ance from you. Tushar Singh, Jaipur Dear Tushar, The Mahindra Thar would fit the bill per­fectly for your re­quire­ments, priced as it is around Rs 9 lakh (ex-show­room) and is equipped with four-wheel drive. It is def­i­nitely tough and easy to main­tain. If you want some­thing that has all-wheel drive but is more road-bi­ased, since you com­mute quite a bit in the city, then you'll have to stretch your bud­get a lit­tle and take the Re­nault Duster AWD into con­sid­er­a­tion. Both the Thar and the Duster AWD only come with diesel en­gines and man­ual trans­mis­sion.
