The legend of the Thar has been in the making for more than sixty years. The adventurer’s car of choice, it is the true successor to the MM540, Mahindra’s original all-terrain, come-what-may Jeep.
With its classic body and contemporary features, the Thar is more than just a vehicle that can navigate deserts, rivers, and ravines. It is an indestructible collector’s item.
The Thar is based on the original Jeep that Mahindra built under licence from the late 1940s and is a no-nonsense vehicle, built to be enjoyed off-road. The 2,5-litre turbodiesel develops 78 kW and 247 N.m, and is connected to a five-speed Borgwarner manual gearbox.
A range of creature comforts usher the new Thar into the modern world, such as durable cloth front bucket seats with 3-point safety belts, adjustable headrests, dual-tone dashboard, floor console with cup holders, 3-pod instrument cluster with chromed bezels, rubber floor covering in cabin front. Side impact beams are a welcome safety feature, while dash-mounted passenger assist grip helps passenger ingress. Other features such as a day/night rear view mirror, silver accented bezels around air vents, manual window winders and a thick-grip steering wheel with silver insert are all fitted as standard specification.
