Indian customers have seen many proper off-roaders come to market and rule the Indian streets for a long time. However, with passing time, they have either been discontinued or have been replaced by their modern cousins that are loaded with electronics to assist the drivers. These features do help the driver, but still, there are people who like it raw when it comes to driving an off-roader. In this article, we will discuss 5 used 4X4 that you can still buy.
Tata Safari Storme
The Safari, undoubtedly, has to be on this list when it comes to the most famous off-roaders. The Safari Storme was built like a rock and was capable to conquer any terrain that was thrown under it. The car came powered by a 2.2-litre Varicor diesel engine that produced 148bhp and 320Nm of torque that was mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. Also, a 2.2-litre Varicor400 diesel engine was available. This unit came mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox and produced 154bhp and 400Nm of torque. The car in the used car market starts at around Rs 5.5 Lakhs.
Mitsubishi Pajero Sport
Mitsubishi Motors had made a name for itself with its Pajero Sport. This 4X4 beast came powered by a 2.5-litre 4-cylinder diesel engine that produced 176bhp and 400Nm of torque. The engine came mated with a 5-speed manual as well as a 5-speed automatic gearbox. The car in the used car market starts at around Rs 8.5 Lakhs.
The Force Gurkha might not have been the fanciest product available out there but its off-roading capabilities were not as vanilla as its interiors. The car had a solid-built quality. It came powered by a 2.2-litre as well as a 2.6-litre diesel unit. The 2.2-litre unit made 140bhp and 321Nm of torque. The 2.6-litre unit made 85bhp and 230Nm of torque.

It is next to impossible to steal the charm of a Toyota Fortuner. The car has been a favourite for most 4X4 enthusiasts. Also, it is one of the highest resale fetching cars available in the market.

Mahindra Thar is also one of the products that have grown strong year-after-year, generation-after-generation.
