Comparison Verdict

If the top-end variants of both are being considered, the Mahindra Alturas G4 is much more affordable than the Toyota Fortuner facelift. On the feature front, both the SUVs are similarly packed, however, the Fortuner’s 2.8-litre diesel engine is now much more powerful and torquier than the Alturas G4. In addition, the Toyota SUV gets a petrol powertrain, as well as manual transmission options, which the Alturas G4 misses out on.
