Its NEF TCI 105BHP CRDe Engine offers that extra boost of oxygen to the car's strength that allows it to decently go through steeps descents and tricky ascents. Its BorgWarner 4WD system further enhances the experience. Approach angles and departure angles are also specialties that need special mention. Nice shock absorbers also offer a decent control without scratching the belly.

This 7-seater is a real asset on mountain trips. The ride becomes much safer when your hands are free to maneuver the steering with steering mounted controls which help you concentrate only on steering even while you receive a mobile call using advanced Bluetooth technology. The Econ Air conditioner allows you to set the desired temperature and maintain it effectively. Powered by a 2.2 liter diesel engine, the Tata Safari Dicor offers you a good amount of power to authoritatively stroll through tough terrains.

It comes with an independent double wishbone with torsion bar in the front while 5 link suspension with coil springs in the rear further add to the performance of the suspension system.

5. Mahindra Bolero

The advanced engine helps Bolero speed up “at your will”. With an impressive torque, the Bolero can speed up to 100kmph almost effortlessly. While driving on mountains, you may need a “gush of speed” at many spots where you would not risk driving a big vehicle slowly. This quality of Bolero would certainly offer you the much needed speed during those times.
The driver’s seat is well planned and perfectly designed. It helps the driver sit in a comfortable, active posture without him bending too much, even on uneven, rough surfaces. It helps the driver to drive tirelessly and stay away from fatigue. Good quality fabric ensures perfect traction and certain stability without having to continually adjust your thighs.
The excellent shock breakers perfectly cushion the car against most jolts and bumps. The rugged exteriors have the surfaces made from material strong enough to remain unaffected by road offenses. Hence, the inevitable “unpleasant contacts” with rocks and other mishandling can be handled reasonably well by the Bolero. A good amount of room makes it a great vehicle to carry a group of adventurists without forcing them to struggle for space. The 2 best variants of Mahindra Bolero for measuring mountains behind the wheels are -

Bolero ZLX

The 7-seater ZLX is fueled by a 2523 CC m2DiCR engine and generates an impressive torque of 195NM@1400-2200 RPM. A 5 speed NGT 520 gear system further adds extra strength to the drive. The voice messaging system is a nice addition that tells you about general, but important factors that may be overlooked like strapping on the seat belt, an open door or even the need to refuel. A customized air conditioning system with the provision of a heater takes temperature control to the next level.

Bolero SLX
