The 2020 Mahindra Thar has been spied getting tested on several occasions previously. Also, it is confirmed to be launched in April next year. Now, its interiors have been exposed in the clearest spy shots till date.
The 2020 Mahindra Thar will feature a redesigned all-black dashboard. Also new will be its digital-analogue instrument panel replacing the current three-pod piece. The new panel comes with a big MID placed between the dials. The second-gen model will also have a multi-function steering wheel. The latest spy shots show provision for a new infotainment system. The round AC vents seem similar to those of the outgoing model, but there are new AC control dials with silver outline. The passenger grab-handle is now completely redesigned and has been repositioned too. The seats come finished in all-black and also carry contrast stitching. The interiors of all-new Mahindra Thar looks plush, as the company has upped the comfort and luxury quotient inside the cabin, which gets a more mature all-black theme.
The 2020 Mahindra Thar is said to be built on an updated ladder-frame chassis, which will underpin even the next-gen Mahindra Scorpio. Thanks to the new frame, the upcoming next-gen Thar will likely be longer and wider than the outgoing model. Two different roof options are also planned. Under the hood, the next-gen Mahindra Thar will carry major mechanical changes as it will deploy an all-new 2.0-litre diesel engine. This engine will be tuned to deliver 140 PS and a peak torque of 300 Nm. It will be paired with a 6-speed manual transmission.
The 2020 Mahindra Thar will be pitted against the likes of next-gen Force Gurkha, and it is expected to make its earliest public debut at the Auto Expo 2020.
