Currently, the Force Gurkha is an underappreciated car in the country. It is a capable off-roader with 4L and 4H modes as well as separate differential locks. This significantly improves its ability to pull you out of difficult situations. Having said that, the Gurkha is primarily an off-road car, and the interiors may be considered basic. However, essential features such as a touchscreen infotainment system, power windows, and so on are present. The Force Gurkha is only available in one configuration, which costs Rs 17.68 lakh (on-road, Mumbai).

Furthermore, with the availability of automatic transmissions, off-roading should become more enjoyable. The brand has not yet released pricing for 4X4 variants, but knowing Mahindra, you can expect some attractive pricing for 4X4 variants as well.

5. Mahindra Bolero Neo

Mahindra’s compact SUV is the Bolero Neo. However, because it is built on a body-on-frame platform and is a rear-wheel-drive SUV, it stands out in its price range.
