That rugged object of desire - Mahindra Thar is worth crushing over!

The tough, edgy and unique Mahindra Thar has been the vehicle of choice for most adventure lovers since many years now, and for the first time in a decade, an all-new version of the Thar has been launched.
Take it in its native environment, i.e., the rough terrains and if you're ever stuck between a rock and a hard place, be sure the Thar will pull you out of it, buttery smooth.


That rugged object of desire
The most eagerly-awaited car by the Mahindra & Mahindra Group, the Thar launched earlier this month in an all-new avatar. Within the All-New Thar's classic silhouette lies its contemporary styling, a quantum leap in terms of performance, everyday comfort & convenience, technology and safety. It will not only attract die-hard Thar enthusiasts, but also appeal to all those who have always dreamt of owning an iconic vehicle, with all the bells and whistles of a contemporary SUV. In its all new avatar, the Thar is a notch higher in its timeless appeal, owing to its ability of being as comfortable on paved roads, as it has always been off-road. It embodies the value of "Exploring the Impossible" with a greater level of refinement and sophistication.

A legend - both on-road and off it!
The All-New Thar is powered by two all-new engines which set new standards in terms of performance, refinement and reliability. A first for Thar and Mahindra, the 2020 Thar is powered by the 2.0L mStallion TGDi petrol engine, and by the 2.2L mHawk Diesel engine. These engines are offered with a choice of 6-speed manual transmission or 6-speed torque converter automatic transmission, with an authentic 4x4 manual shift transfer case with a low ratio.

Rough trips demand tough vehicles. That's why the All-New Thar has been built on a rugged third-generation chassis and tested extensively in some of the harshest terrain in India and across the world. It has an all-new suspension setup that delivers the impossible: better off-roading capability, as well as superior on-road handling and drive quality. The All-New Thar is also equipped with advanced off-road hardware that seriously improves its capability to go wherever and do whatever the driver demands of it. It has been designed to provide comfort and convenience in all driving conditions, be they off-road, on the highway or in the city.

Feature-rich and Safe
While exploring the impossible, it's best to stay as safe, as comfortable and as entertaining as possible. Keeping in mind the sporty and adventurous lifestyle of its owners, the All-New Thar is loaded with technology that keeps drivers connected with the Thar, their surroundings and friends no matter where they are, through multiple first-in-class features. These include Tyre Pressure Monitoring System, Tyre Direction Monitoring System, Cruise Control, Electronic HVAC Controls, Dust and water-resistant interiors, among others.

As far as safety goes, the 2020 version of the Thar is equipped with a world-class range of active and passive safety features like Hill HOld and HIll Descent Control, seat belts for all passengers, child seat mounts, etc. to keep all passengers secure and out of harm's way.
