Updated Mahindra Thar spotted at a dealership – Spied

Posted on: Jan 29, 2015 - 1:58pm IST

Visible changes on the outside include a new soft top.

An updated Mahindra Thar appears to have reached a dealership already, going by pictures published on TeamBHP. While a Thar with camouflaged body sections was spotted camouflaged earlier this month, it is yet to be determined if the vehicle in these images is of the same version.

The visible exterior differences on the updated Thar include a slightly raked soft top and black side steps.

The pictures suggest a new-look soft top, which is slightly angled at the rear in comparison to the one on the outgoing model. The side step is painted black, which used to be silver. Inside, silver inserts are spotted on the dashboard panel.

At present, the Thar is available with two engine options, both of which are mated to a 5-speed gearbox: a 2.5-litre DI unit that produces 63 hp and 182.5 Nm of torque, and a 2.5-litre CRDe engine that makes 105 hp and 247 Nm of torque. Both 2WD (rear-wheel drive) and 4WD versions are available.

In terms of dimensions, the current vehicle measures 3,920 mm in length, 1,710 mm in width, and 1,930 mm in height, and the wheelbase is 2,430 mm long. Its widely accepted off-road abilities are accentuated by a 200 mm ground clearance, an approach angle of 46 degrees, and a departure angle of 30 degrees. But unlike the Force Gurkha, the Thar doesn’t get locking differentials.

    Gaps between the panels are so large you can literally put your middle finger through them. When is Mahindra going to change the quality of their products to international norms like 2 to 4 mm panel gaps? It is disheartening even to see these types of products being launched today in India claiming something new and improved. In today’s world a well-designed 2.4 lit turbo charged diesel engine will give anywhere between 190 to 240 hp with at least 30 MPG. A 2.5 lit CRDe with 105 hp is not something that people are excited about on a so called tough SUV. In future Mahindra my bring Korean made 100 hp tractors (they sell them in USA as Mahindra tractors) and build a box around it, and call them next generation MMc”Mahindra mountain climber”!

      You are definitely biased against Mahindra. The thar is an iconic vehicle and at this price plz be ready to get only a bare bone utilitarian.
