The ride quality at slower speeds and even over broken roads is rather plush. It's quite quiet too, with very little suspension and road noise entering the cabin. But, it’s when speeds increase that you start to reach the edge of various envelops fairly quickly. At highway speeds, the ride quality gets a little bouncy and you can feel the cabin get bounced around with large bumps. What’s more, is that it takes some time to settle as well. A soft suspension setup also means that there’s some amount of body roll that creeps into the equation. Around corners, heavy acceleration brings out the understeer-y character of this SUV to the fore. Also, if you’re really pushing it in two-wheel drive mode, you will also feel the rear end squirm a bit. This can get quite unnerving, especially considering the size of the vehicle. That said, it behaves a lot better around the bends with 4WD engaged. If you can keep the enthusiastic driver in you in check, accelerate only out of, and not through corners, then the drive can be quite pleasant in the Alturas G4.Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test drive of the car so that you may get acquainted with the drive quality, features, and comfort of the car.
