Best Off-Road Cars in India in 2021 – Specifications, Price, and Features

The monsoon season has officially hit many parts of India and while it does bring the temperature down, the rain makes driving quite difficult. Roads get slicker, visibility is reduced, and floods can leave you stranded in minutes. Cars such as hatchbacks and sedans (the most popular segments in the country) are not designed to take on severe driving conditions and often fall prey to rough terrains. However, there is a segment – the off-road vehicle – that is capable of taking on practically anything you can throw at it. With restrictions on travel even more strict now, these off-road vehicles can help us take a much-needed break within the country while maintaining the rules and regulations set by the government. Here is a look at the best off-road cars available in India today.

Jeep Compass

Under the hood of the Compass sits a 1.4L Turbo-petrol engine that produces 163Ps of power and 250Nm of torque. Paired to this engine is either a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed Dual-Clutch Automatic Transmission.

Force Gurkha – add

2020 Force Gurkha Spied Sans Camouflage, Launch Soon

The Force Gurkha was initially announced at the Auto Expo 2020 and was supposed to be launched back in July. However, the COVID-19 pandemic delayed the release and now the company has a launch date set for the 2nd of October, 2021. There is nothing much to announce about the already talked about Gurkha but there are some changes that could feature when the car finally hits the dealerships. We already know that there will be new stylish LED DRLs around the headlights and a single window in the rear now replaces the dual-pane set up on the previous model. The new Gurkha comes with 245/70 R16-inch alloy wheels which are comparatively smaller than the wheels on the Mahindra Thar. Under the hood, the Gurkha will be launched with a BSVI-compliant 2.6L diesel engine that will generate 90Ps of power and a 5-speed manual gearbox. The bigger, more obvious changes are found on the inside where the Gurkha gets a major makeover. There is a newly designed dashboard with dual tones for a more stylish look. Force has now also included a touchscreen infotainment system to keep up with the latest requirements. Finally, the seating arrangements in the Force Gurkha have also changed with two front-facing seats taking the place of the side-facing seats in the rear of the previous model.
