The highlight this year would be the first appearance of the Suzuki S-Cross in an off-road rally, with a total of four premium crossovers participating in the event. The Maruti Suzuki Swift would also be participating in the Xtreme category for the first time this year.
Raid-De-Himalaya is known as one of the toughest rallies, and this year it will traverse through a new and tougher route, passing through Manali, Dalhousie, Rangdum and culminating at Srinagar. Participants will touch high altitudes of above 15000 ft. with temperatures dipping to -21 degrees centigrade at night in an epic rally that would test endurance levels of both man and machine.
