Mahindra Great Escape Lonavala Concludes Successfully

Mahindra Adventure concluded the 156th edition of their Great Escape event in Lonavala on 14 January. This year saw 21 Mahindra SUVs partaking in the challenging off-road affair.

The flag-off for the said off-road bash had the regular Mahindra jing-bang show up with Boleros, Scorpios and, of course, the much-favoured vehicle for these events, the Thar. The location of Lonavala, in the Sahyadri hills, has been a regular choice for Mahindra’s Great Escape proceedings. The location houses a picturesque natural arena, made by Mother Earth herself, with thick woods, waterfalls, and lakes. Last year, Car India’s very own Joshua had the pleasure of being part of the experience. Read all about that by clicking the link below.

The Great Escape was first started by Mahindra in 1996 as a non-competitive, off-road rally encouraging owners to test their metal and showcase the rugged rough-and-tough ability of their vehicles. Today, the story is quite different with the above-mentioned trophies and competition. However, they have stuck with the roots of the event by introducing owners to the off-roading jamboree.
