Customisation kit available for INR 9.6 lakh.
Mahindra is showcasing the Mahindra Thar Daybreak edition at the Autocar Performance Show 2017. Introduced at Auto Expo 2016, the Daybreak edition Thar can be had by availing a customisation kit priced at INR 9.6 lakh.
Buyers of the Daybreak edition kit get their Mahindra Thar customised completely by the company's in-house Mahindra Customisation division. The build takes around two months to complete. The modification kit brings a matte grey exterior, LED rings inside the headlamps, a hood scoop and LED tail lamps to level-up the off-roader's styling.
Other highlights of the Mahindra Thar Daybreak edition include a winch attached to a set of Stinger Bumpers for additional protection to the radiator and 37-inch Maxxis Trepador tyres which increase the vehicle's ground clearance and enhance the rock crawling capability and chrome-finish dual exhausts. The example shown at Auto Expo 2016 had no roof, but Daybreak edition customers can specify a fixed solid roof for INR 1.5 lakh extra.
The Mahindra Thar Daybreak edition doesn't get any engine upgrades despite the exorbitant sticker price. The 2.5-litre CRDe engine produces 79 kW (105 bhp) at 3,800 rpm and 247 Nm of torque between 1,800-2,000 rpm and sends drive via a 5-speed manual transmission.
