Rajasthan has been a very popular destination among off-roading enthusiasts not only for its terrain but also to show our customers the tough and enduring nature of Mahindra vehicles. Over the years, the Great Escape has developed a reputation as one of India’s most thrilling off-road events and this year’s edition was no different as it put both man and machine to test”.
