Auto Expo Live – Mahindra Thar Midnight Edition showcased

Posted on: Feb 11, 2014 - 2:07pm IST

Mahindra showcased an accessorized Thar at the Auto Expo. Seen here is the rugged SUV fully kitted up with stuff one may need to explore the wild. Mahindra calls this the Thar Midnight Edition.

The entire SUV seems to be wrapped in a matte-black finish. At the front, we notice a bull-bar with additional lights, a tow-hook and an electric winch. The hood gets an air scoop (it may not be functional) and a ‘Midnight’ decal, while we find a snorkel placed on the driver’s side.

The side profile reveals dual-purpose tires set on larger alloy rims and an exterior roll cage. The Thar Midnight Edition sports a few interior enhancements such as leather-trimmed steering wheel and gearlever in addition to the exterior features.

Power for the Thar comes from a 2,498 cc CRDI engine which produces 105 hp at 3,800 rpm and 247 Nm of torque between 1,800-2,000 rpm. A 5-speed manual gearbox sends power to all four wheels (a 2WD variant is available as well) via a BORGWARNER transfer case.

    Are there any front facing rear seats or still the old bench configuration , I think Mahindra really needs to work on the interiors , hard top is a positive step though
