In Mahindra’s product lineup, the all-new Mahindra Inferno will sit above the XUV500 and take on the Toyota Fortuner and Ford Endeavour. In terms of pricing, it’s likely to undercut both its rivals by a good margin. The SUV will be based on the quad-frame made up of 63% 1.5Gpa-grade high strength steel.
The Mahindra Inferno SUV measures 4,850mm in length, 1,920mm in width, and 1,800mm in height, thus making it bigger than the Fortuner. The latter one is 4795mm long and 1855mm wide. The Fortuner, however, is 35mm taller than the Inferno. Read – Upcoming Mahindra Cars In India
