The capabilities of a 4×4 SUV are known to all—no doubt why it has always been a favourite choice for many buyers. If you are offered a 4×4 drivetrain in an SUV, automatically we tend to go for the setup due to its off-road capabilities. Its increasing demand has forced many manufacturers to offer 4×4 configurations in their rugged and more premium SUV offerings. Which are these new SUVs? Let us know about the 4 upcoming 4×4 SUV in India!
Upcoming 4×4 SUV – Force Gurkha 5-door’
The Gurkha has always remained a bare-boned yet true off-roader vehicle. Now, its offroad capabilities would be seen with a new 5-door body layout. This increased expansion by adding a rear door will not only increase its interior space but we can expect more practical features. The car has already been spotted testing many times which only hints towards a proper launch. The car is expected to launch at the Auto Expo 2023. The pricing could mount due to the extra ‘car’ you are getting whereas no changes are expected under the hood.

Upcoming 4×4 SUV – Maruti Jimny 5 door
Maruti is forraying ahead to bring the successor of its legendary Gypsy. This new lifestyle offroader from Maruti could be better in every aspect. Be it practicality, offroad capabilities (with its 4×4 system), ruggedness and Maruti’s trusted service affordability and availability. This car could be a major blunder for the Thar’s sale as Maruti could place the Jimny cheaper than the Thar 5-door. However, the Jimny would be made available with a petrol engine only whereas the Thar is touted to get both powertrain options.
