Mahindra Thar 2020 summary

The first generation Thar was a strong off-roader yet crude. It did not appeal to a large audience. Thus, Mahindra decided to return to its drawing board, evaluated customer and expert feedback, and designed what the Thar is today.

The latest Thar does not have the previous model’s tubular ladder chassis. Instead, it has the company’s hydroformed Gen-3 body-on-frame chassis, giving it a stiffer and lighter feel.

The lower-specced AX has a side-facing seat, roll cage, and 16-inch wheels. You can choose to buy the variant with a soft top. The Lifestyle or LX variant has 18-inch alloys, roof-mounted speakers, premium upholstery, and a 7-inch touchscreen. With the LX trim, you don’t have a choice but to opt for a hardtop or a convertible.

The Mahindra Thar is available in both petrol and diesel fuel options, with an average mileage of 15.2 kmpl. The fuel tank capacity is 57 liters.

The 2.2 mHawk engine delivers 132 horsepower and 300Nm of torque, available at as low as 1000 rpm and continuing to almost 4000 rpm.

The suspension configuration has a coil-sprung, independent double-wishbone in the front. At the rear, there is a coil-sprung, multi-link live axle.

Beneath the bulky center console, there are a few well-designed buttons. The console has a soft rubberized feel. Ahead of the gear lever, you have a large storage area for you to keep your phone. Switches for the power windows are placed between the seats.

For passenger safety, Thar has two airbags.

Mahindra Thar 2020 LATEST UPDATES

Mahindra launched the latest model of their 4x4 SUV Thar in 2020. With a pinch of history and a bit of adventure, the recent Thar attempts to strike a balance between the tastes of the millennials and purists. It has one petrol engine and one diesel engine on offer. The diesel engine is 2184 cc, and the petrol engine is 1997 cc. You can choose between automatic and manual transmission, depending on your preference. The four-seater, four-cylinder has a ground clearance of 226 mm. The Mahindra Thar had 10 variants, but the latest model is available in two variants - AX and LX.

The Thar 2020 is available in six colors. These colors are Mystic Copper, Napoli Black, Aqua Marine, Red Rage, Galaxy Grey, and Rocky Beige. To ensure passenger safety, the car has twin airbags. On the dash ahead of the front passenger, a chunky grab handle is installed for support during off-roading. Below the handle, you can find a metallic plaque. Moreover, there is a small, lockable glovebox where you can keep your necessary documents and other valuable items.

The price of the Thar ranges between Rs. 13 lakh and Rs. 15 lakh. It depends on which variant, fuel option, transmission, and of course, top or base model you purchase. In the segment of stylish SUVs, Mahindra Thar rivals Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Renault Duster, MG Hector, and Skoda Kushaq. However, these cars aren’t direct competitors since they are not 4x4.

  • Things we don’t like

The Thar debuts Mahindra’s latest engines - a 2.2-litre diesel engine with 132 horsepower and a 2.0-litre direct-injection turbo-petrol engine with 152 horsepower.

Inside the cabin, you will be attracted to the theme makeover. It is ergonomically better with new-age connected-tech. The infotainment unit is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

The gear level is shifted ahead to make it easier to reach.

The increase in length, width, and wheelbase gives you additional space inside.

The strong tires with a 790 mm diameter give the car a 226 mm ground clearance.

It is easy to wash and maintain minimalistic interiors.

The windows are large. They give you an adequate amount of light and airflow.

The front seats have adjustable headrests and are adjustable in 6 different ways. The cushioning is slightly firmer. At a time, it is easy for four people to travel in the Thar.

With the large glasswork, everyone can enjoy good visibility of the road.

There is no central locking switch in the front console.

The storage space in the front glovebox or the cup holders in the console does not have enough space to keep items and is inappropriately designed for usage.

The quality of glass used to make the windows does not appeal to all users and can act as a mood spoiler.

The use of hard plastics on the top of the dash will not feel sufficient, and you would want more.

Mahindra Thar does not have rear AC vents, a parking camera, or auto-dimming inside mirrors.

Mahindra Thar 2020 EXPERT REVIEWS

The 2020 Thar is bigger in length, width, and wheelbase. It gives you additional space inside to squeeze in. The new grille and squat stance resemble the design of the Wrangler. The inspiration for the design can be attributed to the longstanding association between Jeep and Mahindra. The front has round halogens, rectangular DRLs, and circular fog lamps.

The iconic SUV with its legendary 4x4 capability gives drivers the freedom to ride on and off the road. It may not be very family-friendly, but the massive 255/65 R18 tires, which boast a 790 mm diameter, give the car its 226 mm ground clearance. Such powerful and strong tires have undoubtedly increased the car’s off-road credibility.

With features like smartphone connectivity and dual USB ports, Thar meets your modern-day expectations. The increase in dimension is worth mentioning as it provides extra room for not only the family members to sit but also to carry your essentials. You can access the boot by opening the tailgate. But it is very compact, and you can only place a few duffle bags.

To sit on the second row, you need to collapse the seats of the front row. Then, you need to climb on the side step and move into the second row. Some may not find this easy and feel like it is an exercise, especially with the three-door set-up. But if you get used to the setting, it is not that difficult. The design of the rear seats is such that they are upright, making it a little uncomfortable for two adults to sit.
