The 2020 Mahindra Thar will feature an evolutionary design.

Rajesh Jejurikar, Additional Director & Executive Director, Mahindra (Auto & Farm), talked about the next-gen Mahindra Thar (codename: Mahindra Z101) briefly last week. “An important initiative, and we believe this is a flagship initiative is the launch of the new Thar,” he said. “The new Thar brings back the core,” he added. Speaking further, below is what he said:

We believe it will create a new category which brings in the core product of Mahindra, which comes in variety - a wide variety, wide level of refinement, aggregates, automatic, all the works, which will create a new segment.

The 2020 Mahindra Thar automatic has already been seen in spy shots, and Jejurikar's statement now all but confirms the speculation about its launch. We expect it to feature a 6-speed torque converter transmission sourced from Aisin and be available with both petrol and diesel engines.
