According to Mahindra, about 57 percent of bookings for the new generation Thar so far are for the first time. In addition, the automatic variant received a higher number of bookings than the manual variant in the total bookings.
The new generation 2020 Mahindra Thar with modern interior and exterior features has received an unprecedented response in the market. The main reason for this is that the vehicle was designed with not only off-road enthusiasts but also regular commuting customers in mind.
In the domestic market, the new generation Mahindra Thorne is priced at Rs. 9.8 lakh to Rs. 13.75 lakh (ex-showroom) selling in the price bracket. It is available in two variants, AX and LX. The AX variant is designed for hardcore off-road enthusiasts with minimal electronics assistance features. Now the top-end LX variant is made with an updated electronics package targeting the general audience in the market.
Update engines are used in this new generation SUV. The 2.0-liter T-GD Emstallion petrol engine produces 150 bhp of power and 320 Nm of torque. Now, the 2.2-liter M Hawk diesel engine produces 130bhp and 300Nm of torque.
Both engines are available with a six-speed manual or six-speed torque-converter automatic gearbox options. In addition, all of these models will be offered with a standard shift-on-fly four-wheel-drive system.
This updated new SUV features a new front fascia with the newest grille design, headlamps, and scuff plates on the front bumper. It also features new 18-inch wheels and a new taillight design. For the first time, Mahindra is also offering a factory-fitted hard-top for this off-roader.
When it comes to interiors, many new features and accessories have been added to this new SUV. Features include a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system that supports Android Auto and Apple car play, steering-mounted controls, cruise control, manual shift-on-the-fly 4×4 system, semi-digital instrument cluster, and roof-mounted speakers.
The new 2020 Mahindra Thar SUV, which was recently launched in the Indian market, is gaining popularity in the market. With its latest design, features, performance and technology, it impresses both off-road enthusiasts and on-road enthusiasts alike. It will compete with the upcoming Jimny SUVs from Force Gurkha and Maruti Suzuki in this segment.
