The RG-32M light armored vehicle is powered by a water cooled 6-cylinder turbo-charged diesel engine. It provides crew protection by an all-steel welded armored monocoque capsule, and ballistic protected transparent armored windows and windshield. The crew compartment is protected to a level of 5.56 x 45mm NATO ball ammunition and against a variety of grenades, firebombs and thrown missiles. Protection also includes the firewall, roof and floor, which is designed to protects the occupants against a single anti-tank mine (7kg of TNT) under any wheel.
