I came across this video that walks you through the basics of off-roading for beginners. This will help new comers to this hobby get initiated fast and teach the best practices for getting started with off-roaders. Hope you all find this useful and it gets you all motivated to go and give off-roading a shot.
Renault unveiled the Kwid amidst much fanfare and the car community went bonkers with the features and the price that its offered at. "Its a hatchback that has spawned its cross version before the hatch" this is what it seemed from the launch pics. If Renault plan a future full blown SUV spawned of the Kwid, here is what it would look like.
I have always loved the Duster for its macho and butch looks. And I think it has awesome street presence as well. But I always wished that it came with 4x4 to go with the looks. Looks like things might changed. Renault is looking to launch the 4x4 Duster in India next year in March. Renault apparently exports the Duster from India under the Dacia name. The 4x4 is said to come in only the 110 bhp avtaar and a 6 speed manual tranny. The 4×4 system on the Renault Duster is a selectable system with a knob on the dashboard, just below the AC controls, to the left of the gear lever, allowing the driver to switch between two-wheel drive (2WD), automatic four-wheel drive (where the Duster decides when to transfer power to the rear wheels depending on wheel slip and traction conditions) and 4×4 lock mode – where the Duster can be locked in 4×4 mode for off-road use on sand and snow.

Here are spy pics of the Mahindra Quanto 4x4. Looks like Mahindra plans to take on the upcoming Duster 4x4 which was also seen testing recently. This test vehicle was spotted around the Pune bypass road and it was accompanied by a BS3 Mahindra Bolero. If you could not locate the give-away still, just gaze at the front wheel hubs (pic below) which read a pronounced ‘4WD‘ (4 wheel Drive).Another thing to note is was that this Quanto appeared to be a 5-seater and was devoid of the rearmost jump seats. Hence, there is no foot step at the back to climb up. There is a possibility of this Quanto carrying the bigger 4 cylinder motor from the Xylo as well. Pics & Source: Motorbash
