To be a part of your Indian road adventure, your standard sedan won’t be enough. What you need is a sturdy Sports Utility Vehicle or off-road vehicle that will help you explore the length and breadth of this country that comes with unpredictable turf and terrain.
The off-road vehicles of today come packed with mind-boggling features that enable drivers to traverse impossible landscapes with fantastic ease. Larger -than-usual tires with deep, open treads, high ground clearance, immensely flexible suspensions, and caterpillar tracks are just some of the features that cater to adventure-loving people who opt for the off-road vehicle.
Here’s a look at the vehicles that are setting new standards in the SUV category in India.
The Jeep Wrangler is perhaps the most preferred choice of those who want all the features packed into an SUV that gives value for money. Designed to travel on the road and off it with equal aplomb, Jeep Wrangler’s latest version comes armed with enhanced exterior and interior features. Augmenting its capabilities, Jeep comes with spacious-if-not-plush interiors, wider tyres, engines with better efficiency, and specialized axles. Jeep Wrangler showrooms in Chennai price the vehicle at 63.94.
The Japanese pick-up truck Isuzu is becoming a common sight on Indian roads. With fewer competitors in the Indian SUV market, this off-road vehicle comes with 2.5L diesel engines that empower the 4-wheel drive with 134Hp. Sporting a fresh facelift with a high-speed transmission and low-range transfer case, the latest Isuzu V-Cross is priced above 15 lakhs and is set to take the SUV market by storm by the end of 2020.
The Ford Endeavour serves well as an off-road vehicle for its bulky frame and brutish nature. Serving equally well as a commercial vehicle, the Ford Endeavour, with its vast dimensions, is a pricey car. Built with electronic terrain management for better off-road navigation, this SUV is also endowed with sunroof, powered tailgate, and auto-park assistance.
Jeep Compass Trailhawk
Jeep’s Trailhawk is a 4×4 off-road vehicle that is enhanced with nine speed automatic transmission and low range crawling gear. Priced at 26.8 lakhs, the Trailhawk is the best choice for the adventurous driver looking for a small vehicle with worthy electronic and hardware features.

In comparison to other countries, there is a limited choice for off-road vehicles in India. But the market is slowing expanding with foreign auto-giants making a foray into this still unexplored territory. While some SUVs are designed to cater to commercial use in mind, there are a few that are built with amazing off-road abilities.
Toyota’s Fortuner is another heavy-weight 4×4 that is a model to reckon with. Armed to the teeth with assist control, active traction control, electronic drive, and vehicle stability control, the Fortuner is priced above 30 lakhs.
Force Gurkha, Mahindra Thar, Range Rover Velar, Mahindra Bolero, Jeep Compass, and Mercedes Benz G-Class are just some of the off-road vehicles that are making their mark in the 4×4 vehicle category. In 2020, the Indian landscapes will see these powerful vehicles unleashing their potential.
