Looking for an Off-road Companion
I have a budget of Rs 15 lakh and am looking for a vehicle in which I can travel with my dog and my bicycle. The car must have some offroading capability too. I have been eyeing the Force Gurkha or the Mahindra Thar (more so the Gurkha), but I am unsure about their daily practicality while driving in town. Could you please help me with other options that might suit my requirements? Which of the two mentioned by me would be a better choice for city use?

Both the SUVs mentioned by you would be appropriate for your needs. However, we would also suggest that you look at the Isuzu D-Max V-Cross which would be ideal for your purpose. As always, make sure you visit each manufacturer's showroom and take each vehicle out for a spin so that you may gauge the city driving experience and how comfortable you feel behind the wheel of each.
