Purchasing a new pickup in India for INR 5-10 lakhs is a huge deal for pickup drivers and owners. As a result, price-conscious drivers and owners seek only a reasonable price range for their demands.
In this article, we will compare the Hinduja Group's flagship, Ashok Leyland's Dost+ and the Intra V10. Let’s discuss the feature, specifications, pros, and cons of these two pick-ups.
Tata Intra V10
The Tata Intra V10 is powered by a new BSVI-compliant DI engine that produces 33 kW (44 HP) of power and 110 Nm of torque while maintaining the best in class gradeability of 43%. The vehicle includes an Eco Switch as well as a Gear Shift Advisor (GSA) to ensure best-in-class fuel efficiency.
Electric Power Assisted Steering (EPAS) not only reduces steering effort but also makes vehicle manoeuvring easier. With a TCR of 4.75 m and a small footprint, it can be deployed on even the busiest metropolitan streets. The chassis structure was created using a hydroforming method and cutting-edge robotic equipment, resulting in a high level of quality and sturdiness. Fewer welding connections on the chassis mean more structural strength, greater endurance, and lower noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH).
The Tata Intra V10 is available in two variants
|Tata Intra V10 CLB non AC||₹ 6.32 – 6.52 Lakh|
|Tata Intra V10 CLB AC||₹ 6.32 – 6.52 Lakh|
